  • why is it embarassing

    Answer by letstalk747 at 10:17 PM on Apr. 27, 2011

  • are you thinking these people are dead people - like ghosts
    or are you thinking these people are real and they are not

    2nd-does sound like schizophrenic, there are meds, but hard to get it rest, alos must continue to take, when the drugs do work, many go off thinking all is well, and of course it comes back

    good luck, ex husband has a brother with it

    blessing to you

  • Well u are either gifted and can see and talk to dead people or schitzo. I know a very christian lady who is like 73 who can see and talk to dead people. However, her ex husband is very schitzo. Are you paranoid like you think there are cameras behind your bathroom mirrors? Do you think that your father secretly works for the FBI and is following you? Do you think that people are plotting against you? That is schitzo.

  • I dont know because i am not a doctor but it sounds schizophrenic to me. You shouldn't be hearing or seeing anything other than reality.

  • At first when I saw the headline, I thought you were joking, but now I see maybe you're not. Schizophrenics do have hallucinations, but they are usually auditory hallucinations - hearing voices. Not usually seeing and hearing people. Do you hear people talking to each other or a voice that narrates your activities? Those are a couple of the hallmark symptoms unique to Schizophrenia. BUT, and this is a big BUT, you cannot diagnose yourself with a mental illness of this serious nature. You need to see a good Psychiatrist for an assessment. There could be other causes of hallucinations, and someone needs to get details about you and other aspects of your health and life. FYI - Schizophrenia is no joke. Devastating and life-altering illness where symptoms can improve with meds, but nothing cures it. To say that it is as simple as taking a pill is diminishing a serious psychiatric illness.

  • There are people out there who can communicate with the dead if that's what you're referring to. It's possible that you're one of the few that are gifted.

  • It sounds to me like you can see and converse with the dead. In my religious path it's considered a rare gift.

  • they're not dead, at least they don't look or act like it and i have no idea who they are.
    im not paranoid really about FBI and cameras, but concerned.
    my uncle is schizophrenic and pills helped him but i wonder how much. we'll see
