When I go to sleep, I wake up in another world. I just stay in my room for a while, and keep the door locked, because I know it isn't a real world outside my bedroom.

I've been through some frightening experiences, but I always know when I'm seeing reality, and when I'm not. That is why I'm off my meds.
I've told my family, and my psychiatrist, that if I ever feel violent, towards myself or others, that I will notify them and take the medication needed.
I'm young, but I've been dealing with it for a little over half a year now. Also, there are older people in my family with schizophrenia, so I grew up understanding it(as much as I could, then. Now more than I want, hah).
The main thing I do is keep a positive attitude. It's easy to get delusional when depressed or stressed, so I always make sure I see the beauty in the world before I let things get me down.
It always helps.
Thank you for looking out for me, though. It does mean a lot.
