Schizophrenia, I Think

So, I’ve noticed my mind isn’t exactly normal. There’s another entity in here that controls my imagination, sometimes subjects thoughts into my mind, and makes me paranoid and makes me feel impulsive at times. Sometimes if someone gets close to me it makes me want to punch the person and run off somewhere else. There’s someone in my head, but its not me. Used to, it had more control over me, but I’ve been able to realize that he doesn’t control me. He doesn’t know me. He doesn’t know anything. Used to he had me convinced I was Satan’s son, but I now realize that was a mad idea. even though I don’t listen to him, I still feel as though I am stalked. I cover my phone’s camera in fear someone is watching me. I have to look behind the bathroom curtain to make sure someone isn’t there. Physically you can’t tell I have any problems, atleast through the perspective of a normal person. But mentally my mind’s starting to melt.

A. If there an “entity” that has overtaken your mind, it might be something other than schizophrenia such as dissociative identity disorder (DID). Perhaps the idea of an “entity” is suggestive of a delusion. You also mentioned covering your phone’s camera because you fear that someone is watching you. That could be indicative of paranoia, a common symptom of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders.

Of course, diagnosing over the Internet is impossible. Much more information is necessary to determine if you have a disorder. I would advise you to have an in-person evaluation by a mental health professional. If you are experiencing symptoms, you should always consult a professional. They would be in the best position to determine what is wrong and most importantly, to offer treatment.

All of the symptoms you have described are treatable but they first must be brought to the attention of a mental health professional. Ask your parents to assist you in finding a professional in your community. Please write again if you have additional questions. Good luck.

Hair Pulling, Nail Biting, Skin Peeling and Biting

All my life I’ve bitten my nails. It’s caused me a lot of trouble, especially with my bipolar mother who has always thought screaming and shouting at me (and often a smack when I was younger) would make me stop.At around 7 I also started biting and peeling the skin on my fingers which has caused a lot of social and health issues for me from being to ashamed to join in with prayers at school, to getting my fingers getting a fungal infection causing long lasting damage to my fingers.Soon after I started to pull out the tiny hairs on my legs during school assembles and by 12 I began to pull my eyebrow hair out.How can I stop doing this to myself? I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time (I started biting the skin around my fingers just writing this and caused it to bleed a little). I’m afraid to bring this up with my parents because of how they have reacted in the past and I’m far too embarrassed to ask anyone I would typically trust. It has severally impacted how I interact with …

Painful Memories Evoke More Intense Emotions in Those With Depression

People with major depressive disorder (MDD) experience more intense negative emotions while recalling painful memories compared to non-depressed people, according to a new study published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.And although those with MDD were able to turn down their negative emotions about as well as non-depressed people, they used different brain circuits to do so.The new findings pinpoint brain differences in MDD associated with the processing of autobiographical memories — one’s memories of personal events and knowledge of one’s life — that help us develop our sense of self and guide our interactions with the world around us.“This study provides new insights into the changes in brain function that are present in major depression,” said journal editor Cameron Carter, M.D. “It shows differences in how memory systems are engaged during emotion processing in depression and how people with the disorder must regulate these systems i…
