and there are downsides to going to see a doctor, first no doctor will believe what i am saying, i will be labeled with a condition, which will be on
my permanent record, depending how severe my situation is deemed by them i can be viewed as a threat and i can get admitted to a hospital\\
and no the tv or radio has never spoken to me, i am not crazy, and yes that is around my age
Well, if you have the disease, you'll know it soon enough regardless of whether you go see a doctor.
I'm pretty sure you can see a shrink or something and not have any record of it. Doctor/patient confidentiality and such. I'm 99.99% sure in
America, they can not arrest you and lock you away forever in a square room with padded walls, unless you've committed a crime of some sort.
26 years old is when most schizophrenics exhibit symptoms. It's like the sweet spot for schizo symptoms appearing. Such is life.
Anyways, I hope you don't have the disease, but it sure sounds like you do.
I was becoming very frantic, and told my parents I wanted to check my house for bugs
"It did not happen. This boy is crazy.”
it was clear these were agents and not just Iranians.
the agents have been using my neighbor’s house
an agent from an apartment in the complex yelled out my name in a very startling and scary manner.
The next incident occurred in July 2008, in which someone from my neighbor’s house yelled out at me “I think you are backing down.”
Let me ask you something, does this sound like something coming from a healthy person?
I hate to break it to you, but having episodes where strangers look at you, shout derogatory things, try to make you feel bad, then virtually
disappear, leaving you with nothing but the memory of it happening, is a strong indicator of symptoms.
Staring at your neighbors window, seeing figures appear in it and disappear, hearing them make noises at you, etc, that's probably an
Like I said, see a doctor. The only worse case synario here is that you never attempt
to get any help. The 'stalking' gets worse, soon you
start finding notes in your newspaper from the stalkers, which you're SURE they inserted just in your newspaper, and nobody elses. You'll start
hearing them, but unable to see WHERE they are -- must be in the walls or lurking in the shadows some place, you'll tell yourself. You'll start
obsessions, like looking behind you, only able to sit in corners, constantly checking empty rooms for people. People in pictures and on the TV will
begin looking AT you, like they're alive on the page. Magazines will have cryptic death threats and demeaning inserts about you. You'll become a
recluse, too paranoid to leave, even though there are agents living with you at all times, at this point.
But that's IF you have the disease. Personally, I wouldn't want a life like that. I think taking the "risk" of being labeled crazy far outweighs
the actual prospect of being, literally, crazy, not to mention the fact that in your life, you aren't getting any relief from your specters, so I
would say screw it and just see the damn doctor. If you don't have the disease, you'll know because nothing will stop the agents. If you do have the
disease, you'll know because you'll finally get some relief from it, and live a normal life.
It is worth finding out.
