You're very welcome. What I said, I think, holds a lot of truth. We all influence others with our beliefs and choices and actions. If someone says you are stuck, then they just cannot conceive of the way out. Its pretty arrogant, so don't fall into the trap of defining yourself into a box. Seek to be. Your mind is more dynamic than average; you just gotta recognize the mindsets that spiral into oblivion, and not repeat. The way I took back the reins, for me it helped those counterproductive patterns to dissolve into nothingness. You seem like a very smart and insightful person. Perhaps you are very spiritually aware, but not quite done with reconciliation. It can be done.

I like to see it like this:

It may be tough right now, but it's only tough because I want to learn something from the experience.

I realize that I have absolute power of my mind, and that if I give it enough time, I will understand how to control it all, eventually.

Things may get scarier, they may get tougher, but that is ONLY because I allow them to do so.

Have you looked into High doses of vitamin D3? John Cannell MD. The Vitamin D Council - Vitamin D, the cause of everything?

He has some very interesting videos on you tube like Dr. John Cannell on Vitamin D. I was looking through some of his stuff recently, regarding swine flu and I saw a lot of refs to Vitamin D and Mental health.

Star & Flag for you. I admire your honesty, openess and positive attitude.

Do you believe that people who've been diagnosed as having schizophrenia and collect SSI or SSDI, should be coerced or forced to go through job training and work, even though they may not be able to due to their complete diagnosis? Who should really decide if not the patient?

If antipsychotics are life threatening and or contraindicated and or cost prohibitive...and or lower the patients higher ability to function, is this better or more productive and more fulfilling for the patient?...or just society?

Who is the real threat to society?

Fair enough. You'll reemerge. The way to control is through seeking peace. It is almost like you have to give up desire for control in order to gain it. You have probably seen the Matrix Trilogy already, but maybe watch revolutions again. A lot of people seemed to have been somewhat disappointed by this movie, but there is a lot of insight into spiritual war in this film, especially the final battle of Neo and Agent Smith. It really is true that when a lost, aimless, nihilistic machination runs its course, that it somehow reconciles with the found, full-of-direction, faithful, loving mindset. Effective at dissolving "Agent Smith" is the judgment and forgiveness part of what I said, realizing and courageously coming to grips with false projections. You then realize the way; all other ways have been eliminated.

This is a tough thing to talk about, as it REALLY depends on how honest those who wish to collect are.

I honestly think that them getting paychecks is okay, but that it should only pay for their medication and possibly room and board in a home. If they're that bad off that they can't work, then they shouldn't be trusted living alone. Living with parents is fine, as long as you have a good relationship with them.

I personally don't collect any paychecks from the government. I'd rather not be on their papers, these days. :/

The real threat to society is it's own ignorance.

This is only the beginning of a long fight for our lives.

Movies have been teaching me a lot about what I experience, lately.

It's almost as if they were created to help those like myself beat our own "Agent Smith."

Thanks for answering. There does seem to be a major issue with some of these people as if now owned by the government as lab rats. Who's to say that they weren't lab rats all along anyway?
I've recalled quite a few things like this. But with my diagnosis by them, not too many would accept that now. I suppose I'm lucky I'm still alive and 'free' to some extent.

hey i want to ask you something . Those voices are not real voice. these voice are is it telepathy sound or thought? am i right? I believe everyone have it. but most people wont admit it and dont want label as insane. I know there are 2 sides one are very negative. it can temp u to sin other things that made u angry. other are postivie it warn u , help u and calm u down. but one problem one day goverment will play with our minds. it s third voice. it s real voice it s not telepathy. I think it will be more hard if there are negavtive 2 against one postive . i call it warfare spiritually. that what we fight everyday. its hard to believe but it s true.

i remember i saw movie. i forgot what it called. it about man that fell down the hole in the snow mountain. other guy thought he is dead. that man who fell. he broken his hip and legs something like that. he got these thoughts very negative very constant. he fight it to get to his friends in the end. friends are shocked when he came to them. he almost pass out with little enegry left. they almost leave that place without him. that is other example. that in ur minds. can u do without sin in 24 hr? negative one will not let that happen. remember keep faith in God. ask for his help to fight negatives. u cant beat negative without God's help.

I’m going to finish this read it’s very interesting for me at a sort of personal level, but at the moment I want sleep. So ill ask a question before I hit the sak.

Do you ever get you memories confused or rather have a memory that you remember but not sure if it actually happened? Sort of like your mind fabricating memories or even replacing memories.

I don't have any questions for you, but I just want to say that I have schizophrenia too. Thankyou for making this thread, because I've never met another person with schizophrenia before and I have always wondered if other people really do think the same way I do. So thanks again, I'm enjoying reading over it.

There have been a few times where I've had a memory and then asked my parents if it really happened, and they've said no.

I think it mostly stems from being unable to differentiate my first few times in the dream world, and the real world.

Take care, Brother.

It's a rough world to live in, whether you're mentally healthy or not.

I hope you go back on your meds if you truly are schizophrenic. Have they thought about possible alternative diagnoses for you such as Dissociative Identity Disorder?

your nightwalking dream is interesting because although i have been to a psychologist several times, i have not been diagnosed as anything per-say. But if i manage to fall asleep which does not happen often, i either do not dream or i fall into another place the place i have mentioned before as the Void.

I have memories of laying down in my bed and staying motionless until my "body" got up on it's own and walked away.
I do not know what it means.
I don't remember it actually happening.


Ok...entirely different thing, what you experienced here is an Out-of Body-Experience (OBE) but not uncommon by many. What I'm talking about is the occupation of the body by one or more Spirit Entities. A proven Adept, Spiritualist, Guru or whatever you prefer to call them is one who is sensitive to other dimensional realities and has the skills need to remove the unwanted Spirit Entities. It is the belief of many of these Adepts that a person with your condition could have more than one Spirit residing within the physical body thus manifesting multiple personalities.

My Son was in a bad auto accident many years ago and in a coma for about a month. When he came out of this coma is was like a rebirthing process not just a waking up process. Today I'm quite sure he had what is known as a 'Walk-in' experience during his coma, this is where one Spirit displaces another Spirit, these events usually take place during a traumatic event or when one has Flatlined is my understanding. He has basically the same personality now but his interests have changed dramatically.

Who ever decided that 100% of schizophrenics need medication? If you have a papercut do you think it should get a band-aid 100% of the time? To me the paranoid one is the doctor if he thinks medication is the answer 100% of the time. I won't even guess what percentage of schizophrenics need medication but I believe 100% is almost certainly not the correct percentage. This 100% rule seems like a form of paranoid behavior in itself.

No, it wasn't an OoBE, I know what those are like.

I put body in quotations because it wasn't MY body that got up. It was a completely different body.

It almost felt like either an alter or a spirit was leaving me.

OoBE also doesn't explain why it doesn't feel like a real memory. I've had many OoBE's, and they all are fresh in my mind.

This wasn't real, as far as I can tell. Just a delusion.

I don't know much about them, but from spending 5 minutes on their websites, it seems to me like they're both saying the same thing.

The only problem I have with people like that is that they all repeat each other. They don't go into enough detail.

But, again, I only spend 5 minutes on their websites. There may be more than meets the eye.
