Title really says it all, I am also terrified of schizophrenia, this is an extreme fear with me. I have to admit, it has gotten MUCH better, however something strange happened to me and of course I am looking for reassurance because I've read far too much about schizophrenia. A random, nonsensical word just popped into my head tonight. Granted, I was watching TV, reading/posing on a makeup forum and my mind was racing as it usually does. It could have been a combo of stimuli, and I could have just had a random jumble of words. This word was something I've never heard before, it was definitely a thought though, something my mind just spewed out. I have been diagnosed as the "pure O" OCD, and I will be starting CBT soon. Of course my mind is convincing me that it's schiz because of the "word salad, neologism" symptom. Any advice, any others experienced this? I am starting a new job tomorrow so my anxiety is a little keyed up. Please help.
