    What symptoms of Schizophrenia do you show?
    When I don't take my meds I get extremely paranoid and start thinking people are following me and that I'm in some kind of government conspiracy. I basically make up stuff and end up believing it. Also before diagnosis I couldn't stop thinking about suicide.
