    hello happyface99 thank you very much for your reply I was worried that no one would reply to my post. I just had a bit of a meltdown the other night because I'm being tracked by a microchip that an undercover agent from the CIA planted in my brain about 9 months ago and ive been really paranoid ever since. I have to find a way to get it out but i dont know how has something like this ever happened to you? peace and love naboo88

    Re: 19 year old schizophrenic very paranoid want to talk to others

    hey there thanks for responding to my post yea i almost tried cutting them out of me too but i didnt know how because it was in my brain i wanted the doctors to operate but they wouldnt :S i looked up the drug that u mentioned and it seems to be like risperdal i am taking risperdal, seroquel, celexa and clonazepam im almost on the full dose of both risperdal and seroquel and am still having many problems the doctors mentiioned that i could go on clozaril im not sure if uve heard of it but they said i could go on that but its really fatal and i could die from it so i guess im going to stick to increasing my meds that im on right now and see what happens. Write back if ud like! peace, naboo88

    hello naboo, you are definitely not alone as i have lived with a person that has had it for almost all her life which is my mother. I believe the illness gets worse as you get older. My mother is much worse now then say 20 yrs ago, the comparison and the rate at which it occurs is much worse the older u get. At least with my mother. To find out more info you can look at my previous posts

    hey,
    Do you know anything about marijuana triggering psychosis, besides the fact that it can happen.

    i know for a fact it can....i have drug induced sz from using crystal meth. i guess the more u use the more likely ur going to experience psychosis, generally once u stop using and the drugs are out of ur system u stop getting psychosis.

    hope this helps

    all the best

    I'm not so sure about that joel. I used weed & drank like a fish for 11-12 yrs wen i was a kid, started wen i was 9. I have been having episodes fer a lotta yrs too, i'm 37 now. so just cause ur not doin the drugs, or they aint doin u anymore, doesn't mean u'll be fine if u quit. My shrink says that my drug use & my horrible childhood had a lot to do with my schizoaffective/bipolar disorder. Shane

    Yeah, I understand that. I meant more like how do you know you're in a "psychosis" like is it something that happens for 14 hours or does is it more gradually happen without you really realizing over a long time.

    Re: 19 year old schizophrenic very paranoid want to talk to others

    I believe that our paranoia is more reasonable than we think.
    I know some of these things are specifically delusional but being aware of what we are makes them seem alot more capable of happening wouldn't you agree. Sort've a I wouldn't put it past them kind've thing.

    Like for instance, if I were to meet hitler knowing what I know about what he did and believed I would be extremely paranoid about him and have all sorts of thoughts about what he could do and quite possibly imagine a few things, because he's so horrible, and although he might not be doing some of the things that I imagine about him doesn't mean that he wouldn't be capable of actually doing them if given the chance, evil will drive you crazy like that.

    My first "episode", I became very aware of evil and understood it a little more. And although some of the things that I think are completely delusional, some of them aren't, being aware of this evil reasonably made me paranoid about the world and reasonably delusional, and although some of the things that pop into my head aren't true it doesn't mean that they wouldn't happen if given the chance, that's what experiencing evil did to me, I was able to see what it would do-"delusion".
    It will really make your mind wonder when you know what this world is capable of doing. You guys get what I'm saying, cuz I don't know if I'm explaining this right, man I hope so.
