Need some advice/reassurance
« on: January 01, 2013, 08:10:47 PM »
 So lately ive been very afraid of getting schizophrenia. I don't have any family history or anything. I know its just my anxiety acting up but idk how to stop it. It started in psychology class when the teacher started explaining it and i thought to myself i probably have it. What can I do? I'm a male and 18 years old.  I just wanna know how I can stop thinking I have this thing and move on with my life! Thanks any advice is welcomed. :)

those with schiz don't worry about getting it.  they often don't even know what they are experiencing is abnormal.  This is part of the reason why the illness is so hard to treat.

what are you doing daily to work on your anxious over thinking?  What habits can you abandon that are only furthering your anxiety?  What proactive habits can you pick up?  As we know doing the same ole same ole doesn't get us anywhere.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state
