schizophrenia
vicious Doctor: "What does the expression, 'The proof of the pudding
is in the eating' mean to you?" Patient: "That's my pudding, doctor. All God give forgiveness. Oh,
mamma, why did they make expensive weddings? Why don't they stay home, mamma?"

Joana. Why can't you shut up?
I'm trying to help you.
Stop it, please. You're annoying.
Don't say that!
I didn't say that! Could you shut up, PLEASE??
I will if you start listening to me.
That's impossible.
Then I won't shut up.
LALALALALALA!!
Singing won't help you ignoring me. I'm still here.
You're still there.... just help me making sense, please... and leave my life then...
I will indeed try. But you must be strong and you must ignore outside influences...
*Cries*... I can't... I'm too weak...
You've been ignoring people for this long... it won't be hard ignoring them a bit more...
It will. I'm sure it will. I'm not that strong. People are evil.
Then we will kill them. There. They're gone. They no longer exist inside of us. You are free.
Can you help me now?
Sure. Why not?
|*|*|*|How can you ever help yourself if you're so bloody insane??|*|*|*|

deb her way of dealing
i think
though, she doesn't fit the dictionary
definition, not really...
she just hides behind the people
who can help her-
they just happen to be
within herself
but what happens, dear,
when you run out of characters
and jennifer
is not ok
anymore?
what happens then?

pain comes back
no matter
how hard you try
to push it away
and it comes back stronger
the longer
it is put off

i know this.

please listen to me,
all of you,
of her,
you don't have to hide

it's ok to cry

psyki i am so confused. and i don't know what to do. and i don't know what to do and it makes me want to cry. weep. sleep. for weeks without end. i'd like to climb the walls and be free for a while before the karma police catch me and make me cry more. it makes me sad sometimes, being as crazy as i am. at least timothy the magic wasp still loves me. 000122

SaMaNtHa i live next door to a schizophrenic...she's kind of strange.

she is 52, carries a stuffed rabbit and yells at herself...

she controls "air traffic" in the driveway....

hides at the bottom of the pool...

she smokes weed though, so she's cool

i envy her because she is in her own world, and i can't be in my own...it's not fair...

guitar_freak I went to my therepist and I saw my test results. He said I don't think clearly and that we had a lot of work to do... I looked at the sheet and it said schizophrenia. They think I am phsycotic! that is the strangest feeling in the world. 001104

Photophobe I admire you for having the courage to get tested.

I just pretend nothings wrong... Surely coping by myself is better than being doped up...

No offense.

Like I said, I admire you for the courage.

poetic_onslaught i remember this. derrealization skitzophrenia i think is what they called it. it was brought forth from what i thought to be harmless excitement. i was excited by the nervousness in the pit of my stomach, warm butterfly wings fluttering against my guts. it tickled. i think i messed it up from constantly having this feeling. now i cant even have my stomach touched without it trembling like a terrified puppy. this nervousness was brought forth from having more enemies than friends. the drama excited me so much that it was almost erotic. as a matter of fact, this was my first true love. i was the guy that wouldnt back down and was proud of my gangster role. you know the type....loved by few, hated by most, but respected by all. now that i look back at it though, i imagine that the people that barely knew me must've thought that i had more damaged brain cells than just the ones hurt by drugs. i walked as if i had immobile or rusty joints, because i was too self-conscious. i was so self-conscious that i thought out every body movement before i made it. then i wouldnt agree with my movements as i moved, so i always made awkward body movements. i would walk and realize that my hands were latent at my sides. i would try to sway them and couldnt decide how hard to sway them or if i should sway them in rythem with my feet and i would feel stupid. i was ambivelent to everything. i couldnt even decide on if i wanted good or bad, happines or pain, i even questioned my sexuality, more often than not (but never went to the point of experimenting with it). eventually, i became paranoid. i thought the whole world was against me. my eyes, eyelids, lips, fingers, feet, or other parts of my body would twitch, subtly but vehemently. you could notice when my voiced shaked. but even through my paranoia, i needed this drama and excitement and would hope for me to get mixed up in some sort of violence to unleash the pain i had inside. i was addicted to this violent drug that set me free and i wouldnt let it go, no matter what side effects came with it. since i was paranoid most of the time, i would watch everbody as if they were under my personal microscope. i would study their movements and realize what they meant. i would get in to their minds this way. the human race became my lab mice. mind games became my hobby. i was a natural psycologist. i got so good at it that i knew what they were gonna say next before they said it, knew what body movements they were gonna make before they did. i felt as if they were all my puppets and i was controling them with a thought. this is when shit got very scary. i had already been hearing voices for a couple of years, i was seeing things, having night terrors, i was paranoid, and now i wasnt even part of the world. nothing was real. i would walk around a room that family members were talking in and i felt invisible. they probably just didnt acknowledge me because i was some freaky shit. i would never laugh and when i did it was out of nowhere or at something they thought wasnt that funny. i was in my own world but i hated it. i was disconnected, it was like i was watching a movie. i yearned for pain to feel alive. most of my emotions were dormant so it was hard for me to even feel any compassion. the only emotion i would feel was anger. i would stare at people and feel retarded when i couldnt feel connected to anything. i felt brain damaged, deformed, crippled. i would move my hand and be amazed by it. i just couldnt understand how bodies could be moved. i would stare at my hand and be amazed by the movements i made. nothing made any sense. this was some of the scariest shit if not THE scariest shit ive ever experienced. it was like i was dead but alive. i imagine this is what death would probably feel like if you could be conscious of it. almost something like a ghost. i felt nought. i took my medication and got away from my old life and now im better (not all better of course. its impossible to be exactly the same way you were before after something like that. but im not on thorazine any more and dont have any abnormal stuff wrong with me. i guess im normal, although i really dont believe there's such thing as a "normal life".). but im still not sure if its a good thing that i changed. throughout that whole time my need for that sort of excitement never went away. i still have that need. i can never let go of my first true love. 020605

bethany god damn...farmilliar, except i actually experimented and never had a rough time with swinging my arms...but that whole mind games thing and how it's hard to stay away, i feel you, but i never want to feel that stomach pit again. paranoia.
a change of scenery and a little help did it for me, and i feel normal but this concrete, although it's better for me just doesn't seem as much fun

bizzy i like this place. it isn't too dark. cus i don't like the dark. but it's nice, and it's not scary. I been here before, I like it. 030924
...
love & hate the place i exist, is a constant other reality. Where dreams dont come true, where love does not last, where everything around me is just a dream. Sometimes i think that this is all just what i've created. That when i close my eyes, everything stops, and once they are open again, it all begins and everyone is just here because i imagine them to be. I imagine my friends, i imagine my family, i imagine my relationships. It is all in a dream. This dark reality which i live in eats through me constantly. With my eyes closed or open. Either way my subconcious consumes me. Bringing me further and further into this deep dark whole. I've been to the doctor, but am too scared to tell him what i really feel, how i really think, what i really believe for then, this whole reality will cease to exist. And as shit of a reality as it is, it is the only one i have. That is why i'm invincible. I cannot die, because i wont let myself, overdosing has no effect, sharp blades and glass heal too quickly and rat poison does nothing. In this reality where i live, lines in movies really happen. But dreams still cease to exist and love does not last. My reality has flaws, of that i am aware, but what about your reality? Does your's differ much from mine? But see, i know the answer to that question for i am the one who creates your answer subconciously. It is all just a vicious circle, threatening never to end. Please make it stop. Make it all go away, so i can sleep. That is all i want to do, is sleep for the rest of eternity. 041011

Groshing.Ooma Iíve spent the day thinking of you and waiting for any word to prove to me that youíre there. Leaving you behind in that dark apartment felt like a betrayal forced on me by the gunpoint of necessity and I regret having given in to the world and stepping away. Iím left with no comfort and riddled with the images of you, begging me to claim you as my own and speaking to me in a language I didnít understand. I know that youíre trapped in a place which Iím not part of; that speaks to you of treacheries I havenít committed and hatred I donít, and canít, feel.
Had I stayed, I could have tried to quell them, to reassure you, to claim you with words and caresses. All I have now is a silence stretched out over the hours of the day extended infinitely in all directions. I tell myself youíre fine, youíre fine. Iíll hear from you tomorrow and it will be like nothing happened and all this worry will have been for nothing. There is no mantra that can save me from that place from which surfaces all the fear; the constant, endless, uncontrollable fear that makes me imagine every horrible thing that could have happened to make you disappear.
I love you passionately, completely, profoundly. Please remember me. Need me and Iíll be here waiting. What else can I do? Remember me.
