    I feel like this now and again. But you find people with schizophrenia have had previous mental health issues such as strong cases of bi polar or heavy drug use. You won't get to that point it's only anxiety. With the depersonalisation I know it's horrible but you will have good and bad days appreciate the good ones xxxx

      But you've got help!!! That's if you leave it and hold your feelings in. You won't develop it so don't worry about it.. It's like standing outside with an umbrella waiting for it to rain! Big hugs xxx

    Very common fear that I have worked hard to get over. It's not schiZ I promise you. And multiple personalities is very very rare.

    Hi Rhirhi. Unfortunately I suffer from both these conditions, and to have both is quite rare. Honestly? I don't think you can develop either of these simply because you have another condition. Sure some conditions interlink.. such as schizophernia causes anxiety and depression, for various reasons. But if you have just depression, or just anxiety.. this doesn't mean you'll get schizophrenia. Hopethat makes sense.

    But you know what? When I was diagnosed, yeah my world fell a part for a while. But then I picked myself up and slowly but surely built myself back up.

    What I'm trying to say is please dont worry about anything. Everything can be managed and overcome with the right support.. and your life can and will be great again smile

    If I can help at all, let me know. Take care!

    Hi rhirhi how are you, sorry your so anxious i have ocd and since 2008 ive had a major fear of developing schizophrenia or some other serious mental illness the fear has come and gone over the years but everytime i develop mind chatter from my anxiety i start to obsess im becoming phycotic I finally saw a phycratirac Dr and he said i do not have any phycotic illness after so many years of worring im finally going to accept that im.not phycotic. Maybe you should talk to a dr or therapist and tell them your fears. Believe me i know how anxious these fears make you i got that bad when i obsessed about being phycotic i started to take on behaviour that phycotic people do id google symptoms of schizophrenia and tgen my ocd brain would start thinking i had all the symptoms. Please see a therapist or doctor and be honest
