Well, recently I've been really....weird. I keep hearing sounds like somebody is walking in the landing outside my room. Everybody is fast asleep, but my mind tells me it's a ghost or demon waiting to kill me. I sometimes hear voices whispering when I'm trying to go to sleep; they sometimes say my name and it terrifies me, so I can't sleep. None of my family hear them, making me think that the ghost/demon is specifically targeting me. I also think that everything is entirely in my mind - that my brain is being operated by aliens in another dimension, and the whole universe is just a construct of my mind. I also sometimes have this feeling where I feel like I'm in a dream; where nothing is real and I am incapable of feeling properly. I used to have this rarely, but now it is happening every few months.
I also fell in love with my (also male) best friend, which drove me crazy. I couldn't go a day without thinking about him, and I would self-harm as a result (scratch his name into my arm). I cried over him when he left for college and I'm only starting to get over him. Of course, he has no idea and only one other person knows of my feelings for my friend & sexuality.
A different person commented that there was "unresolved sexual tension" between myself and my best friend.
I read up on this, and they seem to be in line with the symptoms of a scizophrenic. So I guess what I'm trying to say is - do you think that I am schizophrenic?
