    Exclamation My parents won't believe I have schizophrenia or take a hint that I do.

    Please help me!!!
    I think I have schizophrenia, because I constantly have twitches and my body goes into spasms, and I see and hear things other people don't, I suffer from deep depressions and soaring highs. And I also have terrible grammar!!!

    And my parents don't see it because they're blind and if there is anything wrong with me they say: 'Oh it'll blow over!' and get on with their day! I seriously need to find out the truth. I just don't know how to tell my parents, and I only THINK I have schizophrenia, I might not! so if I tell them I do and then get tested and find out I don't it'll be INCREDIBLY embarrassing! Is there a test for schizophrenia? But someone please help me! I'm in a rut and have very little means of getting out!

    I don't know how your parents feel about therapy/psychiatry, but if you have health insurance, you might want to schedule an evaluation. I believe a therapist does it, and if you are determined to need it, he/she would recommend you to a psychiatrist. If you don't feel comfortable talking to your parents, maybe get advice from another close family member. Good luck.

    I commend your courage. It is absolutely important you take steps to address the problem. I believe after you have done the diagnosis, they will take you seriously.

    deep depression and soaring highs sound more like symptoms of bi-polar, than schizophrenia......also bad grammer isn't a symptom of any mental illness.
    Are you a student? is there someone at school you could talk to, a nurse or counsellor, perhaps?

    Hi
    It sounds like bi-polar to me too.If your'e over 16, phone your doctors and make an appointment yourself.Get a diagnosis and then tell your parents.If your'e anxious about their reaction I'm sure your doctor will be happy to have a word with them on your behalf.
    Hope this is helpful.Good luck.
    myboy.

    Schizophrenic is a term that will stay with you forever

    so it is important not to take it likely as us suffers have found.

    You need to be 100% in diagnosing the condition.

    Unfortunately no one on the forums can do that for you -

    you have to see an expert and even then psychiatry is not an exact science.
