Am I a bad person?
A few months ago, I never had any of these happen:

1. I first started getting.." obsessions "; I learned that this was OCD.

2. I didn't get help for this, and things got worse--

Like, I have these impulses/ a voice tells me to do bad things.

Over time, it got REALLY bad. I hear voices and stuff-- Research told me that this was schizophrenia...

3. VV

I never done this before in my life, and I try to fight it, because it disgusts me. I... do this:


I..mutter these intrusive thoughts, and then anxiety/guilt comes in, because I don't know WHY I said those, as I don't mean them.

I try humming or biting my tongue, but it still comes into my head, and I don't mean to insult anybody. I know this because I feel horrible afterwards, and not good.

I get upset because I feel as if I'm a horrible , just because I have these thoughts, and that I'm a jerk.

If I were actually that horrible, wouldn't I feel happy and not extremely guilty..?

What do I do?

I'm only teenager years old, I'd like to live and enjoy my life.

Re: Am I a bad person?
I encourage you strongly that seek medical help As Soon As possible, no matter how much I can reassure you that you are indeed not a bad person, your mental disorder will tell you otherwise. Please seek medical attention, do it now, talk to somebody of trust and search for help, don't waste time its not too late.

it's not schizophrenia, it's OCD
and it can be managed once you understand it!
