I just feel so alone not being able to relate to someone about my schizophrenia in real life. Maybe I should attend groups but I just want to meet a friend my age who has dealt with similar mental issues as myself. I love this forum because it helps but I feel alone in real life and I don’t wish schizophrenia upon anyone my age but yea I know not everyone likes to openly admit they have sz …feelin lonely how r u
How old are you? Just being curious…
I am 18 years old
You are so young… Don’t worry, you will meet someone your age
Thank you I hope I do
I think about that sometimes. But I wonder what the reality would be like.
Yea what if we end up being too much for each other and get sick of each other haha
Yeah, exactly! Lol.
I’ve met other Schizophrenics in person.
A lot of them are too socially withdrawn to be friends.
I did know someone my age who had ADHD and borderline personality disorder. We were super close for a while until we moved apart. I did feel we ended up becoming too dependent on each other because we were together everyday and I got sick of it so maybe I should stop my wishful thinking haha!
True I’m at a new school and I started having anxiety attacks because I’m so socially withdrawn it makes me feel bad that I can’t laugh and joke with other people as easily as some people. I just stare at people and wonder why they thought something was so funny. It’s hard to make me laugh and I hate it. I’m too serious I guess
I’m 19. I don’t know anyone my age with psychosis/schizophrenia either.
