What causes this?
Roxie Eyeleers (13 часов назад)
Not sure it is "ok"....just tolerable and in some cases manageable. For my nephew, who is brilliant, it means a 24/7 caretaker and LOTS of hours with doctors and especially his psychiatrist.

I could never watch a horror or suspense movie if I couldn't control my imagination. She must be so brave after living through all that. I just watched Delirium for the first time and it made me thankful that I don't have that struggle. I wonder why she doesn't hallucinate happy things? I rarely ever have nightmares esp. when compared to the number of happy dreams. Curious.

Okay, but like the mouth sounds she makes when she speaks are really annoying. That wet, clicky sound. Also, maybe lay off the horror movies if you're seeing Samara and Pennywise everywhere. 😒

Wow I never knew there wasn't any non-profit organizations to help people with Schizophrenia I am very glad she started one <3 it is very important. My best friend's step dad is Schizophrenic, fortunately he does get help for it and and is in a a good place, and he is just like everyone else, and I think it is very important to show the world that just because one has Schizophrenia it does not mean they are a monster at all.

Fun fact: violence is much much more likely to happen TO schizophrenics than to be caused by them. Be aware and show the same respect you'd show to anybody else.... Maybe even more. There's really nothing more terrifying than your nightmares walking around in your waking life.... And you being unable to know for sure that they aren't real.

Gemini Ali (3 дня назад)
Very long time ago , for several time I have heard the voice of my sister and my mother that talked behind me, in other room. It bothered me very much. One night I said to my self: it’s enough, go and verify what they talk about?” And then I have been totally shocked to find them asleep in their bedrooms!!!!!!! Recently, it’s about one year that I see the people like ghost everywhere who disappear in 2 seconds. I just ignore them. I don’t know if it is schizophrenia, or not ????? But I am very intelligent person with strong memory .

Imagine seeing the clown in your every day life that you get used to it so you just walk into it, not mind it at all and act like a normal day. The clown would be actually get bored and get a life.

I think your message can definitely appeal to people who aren't close to schizophrenia. Try a highly schizophrenic mother. Doesn't get worse than that. Live with one of them for 17 years and you'll look at this TED talk much differently.

Having schizophrenia is hard. I was diagnosed when I was 18, because my cousin knew I was seeing and hearing things and said I needed help. I'm terrified to tell people I know because I don't know If they will treat me the same.

I used to always hallucinate when I got a fever and it was awful I have not had one in years but sometimes I can feel the unmistakable feeling of the walls closing in inside my mind and your head feels bizarre almost like its floating. I used to think Vikings were chasing me, soldiers trying to shoot me one time I thought my sister had hurt her knee and I drop kicked her as she slept one time I thought my fire alarm was going off and I was stood on my bed post hitting it. I remember little bits of most of them but couldn't control myself I was like a spectator. As I got older I got stronger and could control my subconscious but I can sometimes feel the darkness inside waiting to escape

I have Autism and Depression (both chemically imbalanced and from childhood trauma) and I'm not sure if I have Schizophrenia or not because I sometimes have somatic hallucinations where I feel like I'm being stabbed with hot needles to having visual ones of shadow people whenever I talk to myself for afew seconds to having auditory hallucinations where I hear random voices call out my name when I know I'm alone...It scares me. My own uncertainty scares me.

Shady Void (12 дней назад)
I applaud her for being so open and honest about her illness and story, but I also want to point out to everyone here that this is not a typical case of schizophrenia. Very, very few people experience visual hallucinations (usually it's auditory), and most people experience functional decline especially if they were treated late.
Mahatma Cote (12 дней назад)
I find it interesting to hear how she recognises and agrees with her diagnosis. It's probably the first step on the path to healing and normality.

God bless you Cecilia. Be a champion for those that are not as strong as you. You are amazing. I have consistent high blood pressure that is difficult for me to manage with bouts of nausea and disorientation. My point in sharing that is from a societal point of view there should no difference between you and I, we both simply have a health issue that we manage, period. There shouldn't be different attitudes from people towards us, or I should not be qualified for a job more than you, etc. Granted it may take you some time as it has me to prepare for a certain career as I had to leave one that was more stressful, but once we get the help and meds we need to be productive each day we both should be able to wear our badges proudly and not fear some bullsht stigma. What the police did to you was wrong but just like the "metoo" movement the time for change is now and the time to suppress, be embarrassed of or feel shame for a mental illness is near over. I am happy to see that you will be the strong woman who leads the charge. Be brave my friend! :)

i commend her so much for being so brave and talking about this. Mental illnesses are really the worst, especially with the stigma in society that makes people ashamed and suicidal. No matter who you are or what you're going through, just know that it is okay, don't judge yourself, i promise you i won't judge you.

Joseph Villena (13 дней назад)
This woman is a hero.Although im not a fan of surpressing these symptoms with pills.i can understand that there are cases where it is necessary because they say every new attack will push them deeper into that state. But whatever you say i believe love is the only true healing.And prayer can be a mighty weapon to overcome this horrible state.but one should not identify oneself as a shizophrenic.First of all you are a human.What most people lack in their lifes is a sense of compassion from others.may god help us all
Mike Franc (14 дней назад)
Its weird because........ Schizophrenia has haunted me since I was born because my mother struggles with this disease. Those people who I grew up with, along with my Ma, never acted and seemed "normal" at all ever. Around 20 years old I've noticed mental illness went main stream and "popular". Since then, I've been so confused by the people who would step forward as a schizophrenic because they don't look or seem schizophrenic.

She's describing a rather specific case of schizophrenia. As stated in the video, it's only an umbrella term for many different types of symptoms, some of which are ostensibly somewhat milder (or perhaps worse) than what she tells of herself. Auditory and visual hallucinations, for example, can be totally absent in many sufferers, and in fact makes up the minority of cases (if my wonky, tumbleweed brain remembers correctly). Others may only have symptoms such as catatonia, disorganized speech, deterioration of personal grooming, etc. What's more, many symptoms of schizophrenia rather resemble symptoms for other ailments such as bipolar disorder (e.g., psychosis...I think there is some kind of intermediate diagnosis called schizoaffective disorder that describes elements from both). Regardless, possibly one of the greatest hurdles to successful treatment of schizophrenia (and indeed bipolar I and II), is reluctance on the part of the patient to seek help, and non-compliance with treatment regimes. I guess what I'm trying to say is: Keep hydrated, get some good reading in, and pay your taxes. It's these little things that makes for a better society and helps the mentally ill collect decently-sized well-fare cheques that they can use to self-medicate and construct intricate structures to evade the impending invasion of the dreaded scaly-snouted moon rodent. OBEY.
