General Delusions

eaavendano posted:
I was wondering if people's delusions where generally the same or they varied, where completely different. I'm wondering this because the delusions (voices) that I have tend to revolve a lot around what seems to be a kind of male god or female goddess. These delusions sometimes seem to be acting in the form of religious icons like Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary, sometimes the devil and some unknown female entity. So there is a religious theme.

I also hear voices that are different, as if they were coming from different people, sometimes people I've heard before or completely strange voices and say things like "he's sick" as if I suffered from some kind of dissociative personality disorder not in the sense that I may need medicine.

The thing is that a lot more is going on, but what I have pointed out is like the general theme and the idea is that when the voices speak they seem to be talking about you, sometimes like gossip or something or trying to give orders.

I was just wondering if this is the general theme of the delusions people had. Also, this may seem kind of dumb but when I started hearing voices I would hear voices making comments that I was being "too gay" and that I was noticing things in my surroundings that I shouldn't. I also sometimes hear voices that put me down and scream something that sounds like "oy."

PS: On a side note, sometimes I hear a voice that sounds like a whisper next to my ear or inside my head that triggers something inside my head to move towards the back like when I'm trying to concentrate. So the activity going on in my frontal lobe area decreases at that time. I'm also ambidextrous. I was just describing what I feel physically.

I notice something interesting. Like when I'm listening to music, I would sometimes hear words that are not there, rewind the music up to the point where I heard the voice and I could hear the residue sound again but with less power. I think that neurons fire a certain way with music, so when the same sound is played over, the same neurons are firing, so I end up hearing what sounds like residue or like the echo of the first time I heard the voice.

Some of my hallucinations and delusions had religious themes.

Do you only feel safe at home? And do you drive a car when on the right medications? Please advise.

I have a question for you. Can someone live alone that has the condition of Schizophrenia ? If on the right medication can they be left alone for hours? And do you know if the quality of life ends with the condition? I am trying to learn all I can.
Please reply.

of course you can live on your own with the right medications and support groups. Schizophrenia will never go away it can just be controlled. hth.

Does the illness get worse with age? And what will cause a relapse?

IrwinsLady replied to work5's response:
as long as you stay on your medication the condition should not get worse or relapse.

I am not trying to be disrespectful to you at all. I am just learning about the mental disorder. My boyfriend is taking care of his ex wife and she has no family to take care of her. She still lives with him and I guess that if I go to his house she is afraid that I will take him away from her and no one will be there to take care of her financially. With no where to go, I am not allowed there. This man is wonderful and take care of her. I was informed that sometimes she does not sleep all day and is up all night. My question to you is this common of the mental illness.? I love this man and have been understanding of him and his needs, but now I am breaking. He leaves his cell off and I was informed that if she knew of me that she would freak out. Can you please give me your imput on his situation. I love him and try and understand, but she does not know of me at all. He does take care of her financially and she still lives in the house that is in his name only and paid for.. I have seen the dovorce papers as well... Thank you and would really like what you feel about my story. thanks.

dont feel disrespected at all so dont worry. there are different types of Schizophrenia so im not sure what kind of which she has. i know catatonic is debilitating and you cannot take care of yourself, so i can see the situation of which you are talking about. well i think you really need to get him over to you and have a serious talk about this. if he cares about you he should understand and take heart to your concerns about how you feel. he really needs to tell her that he has moved on in the relationship department. she may have this illness but im pretty sure she has understanding. i dont know much about the man youre with so i cant really say much. i have SchizoAffective Disorder and i hear voices and see things that arent really there. i hope this helps a little bit.

Thank you so much for you help and replying to me. I can not tell you how much this means to me. I was informed that if she knew about me, that she would be afraid that i would take him away from taking care of her. see there is no family to take care of her at all. he is the only one financially etc. The house is her safe place. He is with me 5 nites out of 7. And friday right thru sunday nites. 4 yrs of loving him. I have wanted to be a friend of hers if allowed. He said that she basically is a loner, when on the right meds she does drive, but not far. I am sure that it is hard on her and also hard on him that his life is not normal. I am not trying to be mean at all. I just sometimes wish that she would be able to live on her own. She is 46 yrs old. Thanks for your words.

Hello. Hope your life is doing well. I have a questions for you please. My boyfriend who has the ex living with him. Well I have wanted to meet her for 4 years. He told me that she is afraid for another woman to enter into the picture due to he takes care of her. Financially. She has not one family member to take her or help with finances. She does not work and before the divorce she was a nail tech. She feels like if he is with another woman that will pull him away for taking care of her. And with no other help she freaks out alot. Does this make alot of sence to you? He is has told me that he wants to grow young with me for the rest of his life. And that I am the one that he wants to marry one day. I told him that as long as he has to take care of her that will not ever happen.. He told me to just wait and see. So for now that
My question is to you. Does that make sense of why I do not go to the house? I hope to hear from you.

seems to me like she needs to buck up, take her medication and start working. but i dont want to be mean. she needs to get a home nurse or go to a home because that isnt fair to him or you. i know this sounds harsh but thats my opinion.

work5 replied to IrwinsLady's response:
Thank you and no your not being harsh. I was informed last night that her meds had to be changed again. My question is to you is. How do you know when meds have to be changed so that things are more stable? What would cause for meds to be changed? I am not sure what causes come one to have there meds changed. Thank you for your help and advice.
