I'm very afraid I have Schizophrenia.
« on: April 06, 2014, 06:16:53 PM »
I'm very scared that I'm in the Prodormal Stage of Schizophrenia.  I am Hypersensitive and
and always checking the source of a sound.  I smell things that most  people don't, and
I'll go through a phase like an hour of Depression.  I want to know does this sound like
Schizophrenia, and if somebody thought that they had it would they even care that they had
it.  My Psychologist says I don't but I'm really afraid I do, I don't know what to do.

What do you mean by checking the source of a sound exactly?

If I hear something unexpected I will check for where the noise came from.
Say I'm watching t.v. and I hear a a band come from somewhere in my
house I get up and make sure that the sound came from something. 
If there's something on a t.v. show that I'm not sure if it came from it
I will rewind and make sure the sound came from the t.v.

I'm very hypersensitive to my body because I have really bad health anxiety. I have GAD and depression, and I worry about this too sometimes.

I check for sources of sounds if they seem odd. I also smell things most other people in my household cant... Until I find the source. Spent a while recently looking for the smell of smoke. Everyone else could smell nothing and made fun of me. Finally, after checking most of the electronics, I opened the front door. Our neighbors had their fireplace smoking up the whole neighborhood in the middle of summer. Family immediately smelled it upon opening the door and I teased them mercilessly. Sure, there is such a thing as olfactory hallucinations, but some of us just have sensitive smellers. I also would bet that people with anxiety problems are much more aware of, and sensitive to, their environments.

Dont sweat it for now and trust your psych. It is probably more likely just health anxiety. There was a time in my life I was diagnosing myself with every psychological condition in the manual. So just try not to obsess. You're receiving care and your psych would more than likely notice if you showed worrisome signs, so even if you did start having more serious problems, you're in good hands.They got this.

I feel you on this. My dad was dx'd with schizophrenia (he passed away in 1989 and since then I have learned a lot and have reason to question that dx, honestly.)

I also check the source of sounds. It can make me so scared if I can't find the source because I think it's in my head. (So far it hasn't been, and I have always found the source.)

I also smell things that aren't there. I even had a brain scan because of it.
