Hello, my name is Amy. Recently as of last year I’ve developed and self diagnosed myself with Schizophrenia. Continuous voices that are loud, and obnoxious at times. Though they don’t tell me to do harm to others or myself. Some of the voices are female, others are male. There are more than ten different voices as well which when they get rowdy they sometimes cause painful headaches. They’re random at times with what they say. Other times they give me feed back when I am attempting to have a conversation with someone else. I have never been to a therapist in my nineteen almost twenty (By next month) years. I do not do prescribed medication, but are contemplating on it due to the fact that the voices are occurring more often, and more loudly. I have yet to actually tell my parents about this recent development due to the fact that I am afraid that they’ll lack acceptance, or shrug it off and tell me “…You’re fine.” I’ve also been doing some research into myself, and online to better understand exactly why it’s been triggered and what can I do to remedy it. Other than that, I come here to converse, explore, and understand myself and others like me better.
Thanks for reading this extended introduction! I hope I didn’t blather about too much.
