i was wondering if someone could answer this and maybe tell me what exactly is wrong with my head cause i know theres something. im 18 years old ive been smokin weed pretty much every day for about 4 yrs taken various other drugs in the past pills, speed, coke and acid although ive stopped now. i think theres one person a cuzin i have with schizophrenia not sure tho, i have strange view of people and how they look and think about me, sometimes im so paranoid that i cant leave my room or lay on my bed because i think something is gonna jump out or somebodys gonna run thru the door to stab me in the back if i dont face face the door. sometime if im in a dark place ill make my own shapes out of the faint outlines which sometime turn into ghoulish outlines of faces or people in the distance, i also have bizarre thoughts on time and religion, and some particulr ones that could only be described as delusions of the granduer. i soemtimes think that i am smarter then people and then i get biazzare thoughts about there motives to be my friends enimies watever, my thoughts jump from one another sometimes i get stuck on a subject for 15 minutes and ill rant on over the top of people or sometimes sit just quietly but the strangest thing is that it all seems so normal to me kinda making me feel liek im the only person like i am if you know what i mean but im not? so could someone please tell me what could be wrong with me


id like to point out im not encouraging drug use of any sort

I don't think anyone here can really tell you what's wrong except that drugs, including weed, can induce various negative states including schizophrenia. It's not clear to me what you have, but you should stop the weed, and if you don't get better, see a doctor.

No, im afraid not.
Drugs do not cause schizophrenia, they only agitate the pre existing condition of a schizophrenic.

I read that somewhere, I wonder if it is true.

thanks for the replys, i was also wondering, i have terrible insomnia sometimes leaving me awake for 5 days at a time with no drugs at all, leaving me extremly dillusional as you would expect. Could this be related to anything to do with schizophrenia or some other mental illness? and on the weed i think weed didnt cause it, just the fact that for years i surrounded my mind and all my thoughts with it kind of alienating me from "society" just my thoughts. i appreciate any thoughts on this

That's exactly what I meant - that they induce an otherwise latent schizophrenia.

redeme, if you try some drugs it might be helpful. I have lots of thoughts that just kill me, but with the risperdal it's not so bad.

True, a schizophrenic is completely screwed without medication.
It's worth a shot, but if you try any of these medications just make sure that you are prepared for what may happen, educate yourself on the subject. But if you are a schizophrenic, it's your best option.

skitso is a descriptive non perfect for your condition describer
i liked the way i was INTUNED with every emotional factor of my life back then. now i take meds and all i can say is **************** there is nothing wrong with being more intuned about the things others can't appreciate as much as the one who knows more about the finer details of life. deep down there are always going to be more gears working the system of life than what we perceive to be true. we just looked deeper. meds is a no go for me but i take them some times. once you start. you cnat stop. or you will want to go skitzo on ur doctors like i feel the only path might be. there stupid. they can not understand if they do not understand. dont give doctors the power to make you unfeal what is natural. drugs changed you. dont let more controlling drugs be your next change.



the worst chance i ever took in my life was giving these pill doctors a chance to understand me. cause they dont want to understand me. they already figured me out before i walked in the door.
