    would you think that having no friends at this point would have made him worse?

    What?! I've been conservative in my diagnoses, but labelling him with multiple personality disorder just screams hypochondriac misdiagnosis!

    Las Vegas, tomorrow?

    And I don't think it's that hypochondriacal, it's not like I went for swine flu.

    Las Vegas? Nah, if I could afford that, I'd already be there. The Piccadilly Line good enough?

    You mean when you stopped talking to him? Well, yes it sounds like the guy was under a lot of stress. Perhaps people treating him like that is why he's in his own head a lot. Sounds like he didn't have anyone to talk to or anyone who'd listen to his side of the story. As for feeling guilty, everyone makes mistakes. Just try to be a better friend in the future and consider other people more. Maybe you can help your friend come out of his shell.

    it's when he smiles while talking about killing the people that stole his bag you have to start worrying...

    Stress does weird things to people. Trust. He's probably fine.

    Wow.. Really sounds like he's been goin through ****!
    I dunno what more to say than that I think you should try to be there for him, the best you can. Maybe try to talk to him about it. if he doesn't want to talk about it, it's still good to know that he has someone he could talk to, if he should change his mind..

    hes:

    - smiles for no reason
    - sometimes talks to himself (slightly)
    - his anger is really bottled up like these kids (in year 10) were throwing his bag to each other and then he hit 1 of them im the back of the head with the bag (plus the look on his face was scary but he was under alot of pressure at this time)
    - hes in his head alot

    do you think he has problem? how would you aproach this?
    I'll be honest; I don't think this is the basis for an entirely accurate diagnosis.

    It just sounds like he's rather dim.

    Probably not in a sympathetic manner.
