Hi everyone, I'm new and in a bit of a crisis. My name is Alyssa I'm suffering from hallucinations at the moment. Does this sound like schizophrenia symptoms? (sorry that this is long, haha):
All my life I have had hallucinations, from simple shapes, outlines and voices to animals, people and conversations. I also have a habit of being paranoid; I often feel like someone is out to kill me, like someone has planted these thoughts in my head on purpose to see me suffer, that some of the people reading this are out to stalk me. It makes me feel like crying out of fear sometimes.
Back to my hallucinations - I can see spirits watching me from my window (they are here right now), a person sitting beside me on the sofa, a sweet little parrot on my shoulder and many others. I am also friends with a huge black bear called Beast, who is aggressive, demanding and attempts to encourage me to kill/harm people and, at times, myself. There is also a male deer called Maurice, who can stand on his hind legs and encourages my paranoia by making up situations (the people I love pushing me to suicide, being alone etc.). These situations feel so real that I get confused sometimes.
I am failing in my grades, fear my friends and family and have no motivation to do the things I used to love. Please help me.
