Schizos and bipolars can have near perfect personalities. I'd be extremely hesitant about dating a pd. Btw, sorry I'm not pc, but pc is bs. Call me "crazy" and I'll just say "Well I was before my pills."
Well having schizophrenia affects my cognitive functioning more than anything being on meds as I am. I can be functioning very intelligently at times, and other times I just can't think. I get nervous overload or overstimulation easily and end up having to pull back. Whereas say I was mentally retarded I'd just always be functioning at a lower level, but I'd feel less stress. That's basically how I'd explain it.Do schizophrenia and bipolar disorder have so little effect on the personality? I don't know anything about bipolar disorder, but it seems that something as pervasive as schizophrenia would leave a distinctive mark on the personality even with medication.
I wouldn't say so. That's assuming enneagrams carrying any weight when it comes to personality disorders.One thing I might say is that certain personality disorders might be more exclusive to certain enneatypes, whereas stuff like bipolar and schizophrenia doesn't discriminate about enneatypes.
Well I guess we can agree to disagree. I for example think someone with antisocial personality disorder is much more likely to be an 8 than say a 1, and someone with borderline personality disorder is much more likely to be a 4 than a 7, etc. It only makes sense.I wouldn't say so. That's assuming enneagrams carrying any weight when it comes to personality disorders.
Well for me it wasn't exactly hearing voices when I was ill. It was more like having intrusive thoughts in my head that I thought were telepathically coming from other people. It was to the point that I was spending every awake minute each day having imaginary conversations in my head that I thought were real. But a lot of schizos do actually hear voices. A schizo's symptoms are as individual as the individual person.I know that this thread is not talking about self-diagnosing or psychology kind of thing but...
whenever I'm trying to sleep or when it's quite I tend to hear noises (whether it's a crowded, yelling, or even calling my name). I'm not making this up, this is true because Ive been experiencing this since I was a child and I could only stating that this thing is normal and could only believe that everyone experiencing this.
but the thing is that, I don't making those voices to appear in my head, it just came like that and I thought at first it was a something under my bed or a tv sounds. or maybe it's just a connection before I passed out between me and my dream state(?) that sounds ridiculous.
it only happens when it's silence or when I'm trying to sleep (even at the hotels or/and any kinds of places)
Ive read article about it, and some say that it's not common but it's not schizophrenic (I'm glad). it's just an auditory halucinations (which means I'd be suffering from psychosis). it's whenever I'm trying to sleep (not that sleepy but in relax condition) and when it's quiet/silence.
also some say that I have a "Exploding head syndrom" which means that u hear loud noises or loud people yelling or exploding sounds whenever ure connected to ur dream state (half sleeping ).
That's kind of scaring me at first, I'm glad that I'm not schizophrenic. but it must be hard for u to have this kind of illness, can't imagine how to deal with it everyday.
maybe, but it also happens when I'm not laying in bed too (like I said, when It's quiet, or when I'm usually alone in a room, quiet) I tend to hear people talk, crowds, random noises or even calling my names. it always happens, that's why I usually hear music whenever it's quiet or before I sleep. (it happens when I'm laying in bed trying to sleep). yeah, could be. I don't know much about it maybe I should go to therapist and talk about this instead of diagnosing myself and keep talking about this to my friends. they tend to freak out about it.@Bellerixx It sounds like what you have might be kinda like falling asleep dreams. Idk what the clinical term is exactly. Some people have falling asleep dreams where they'll actually see very vivid people or things in their room that aren't there, but they'll still be asleep enough that they'll be paralyzed and can't move. My mom and brother have both had those. I think that's all the sightings of the little green aliens that a lot of people see are. Your experiences might have a completely different root cause though. Idk.
There's a difference between saying "more likely" and "more exclusive".Well I guess we can agree to disagree. I for example think someone with antisocial personality disorder is much more likely to be an 8 than say a 1, and someone with borderline personality disorder is much more likely to be a 4 than a 7, etc. It only makes sense.
