I think most of us on this forum share similar afflictions. We take things to the nth degree, in our thoughts, our words…our actions.
We quite often have no filter or no impulse checkpoint, which can lead to trouble in relationships, adhering to society’s norms, and even getting in trouble with the Law.
Then the paranoia kicks in and we ask ourselves, “Have I gone too far?” We ruminate and stew about the perception that we have somehow crossed the line. Time passes…we feel better…then we do it all over again. It becomes a circle of never ending despair. Medication takes the edge off, but we never feel entirely at peace with ourselves.
Have I just summed up what it is like to be Schizophrenic?
