GO PLACIDLY AMIDST THE NOISE AND HASTE, & REMEMBER WHAT PEACE THERE MAY BE IN SILENCE. AS FAR AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT surrender be on good terms with all persons. speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.## Avoid loud and agressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others , you may become vain & bitter; for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your acheivements aswell as your plans.## Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possesion in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.## Be yourself. Especially do not *feign (fake) affection. Neither be *cynical (like or characteristic of a cynic; distrusting or **disparaging((to bring reproach or discredit upon; lower the estimation of: Your behavior will disparage the whole family.)) about love; for in the face of all aridity it is perennial as the grass.## Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to sheild you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and lonliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself.## You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees & the stars; you have the right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is sunfolding as it should.## Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be, and whatever your labours & aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.## With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.####

Do whatever makes you happy, even if everyone talks crap about you. If nobody talked crap about you and you werent happy that would be stupid.

The universe is unfolding as it should keep that in mind BUT ONLY if you follow what that writing says.

THe universe will unfold WRONG if you do stuff like :

not get enough sleep
eat wrong/ excersise
The 5 things you need to be smart
1 nutrition
2 excersise
3 challenge
4 newness/ surprise
5 love - you dont love someone if you dont force them to do something they need to.

Hi I have OCD and I hear my self thinking alot. It's the same thing over and over again. I have had it my whole life but recently since my younger son has passed away back in 2006. I get these thoughts that say I have to hurt my kids to save them. I was told I have classic OCD. I get very bad anxiety. I found out thinking I had Schizophrenia that they don't repeat things over and over again. They also don't try to stop there thoughts and also they don't get really had anxiety or panic attacks. OCD people get all these. Schizophrenia and OCD are alot alike but very different.

It's me again from last year.
I'm doing better but I still get periods
of harsh paranoia. Also I think We should
always try to be happy and when we have insults in our head or paranoia say "stop!" and then "be happy" to drown out the bad thoughts. This helps
a lot so do this and that can help you or me feel much better.

I think the world as we know it is inside a computer, i thought this before the matrix movie and i don't think it's anything nearly as magical ... I just seem to think that there are natural universes and some develop life inside computers since that life would be more numerous that we are more likely to be inside a computer.Also I don't think that humans in a natural universe have dreams or hallucinations... I know this is hard to swallow :) but hear me out.... It would take a specifics gpu processor to process visuals while sleep... god.. no one will ever believe me.. There is a link that I would like to give you... http://www.simulation-argument.com/simulation...

I myself am a software engineering technician and we now know that is is possible to create live in computers and simulate a time-line in a shorter period of time than the time occurs in the computer... if this is in anyway interesting to you contact me on AIM at darksilverfluid.... this is probably a dangerous thing to believe and I think it's just a matter of personal choice to believe it or not... but i think of schizo effective disorder and schizophrenia is a form of experiment or punishment done by the programs operating government.. also i believe that they are possibly sadly anti American in some ways... explaining why even youth are picked on with these schizophrenias

But I sometimes get bad relapses where I get really paranoid about people.
I've resolved to attempt to be a peaceful person. I'll try hard to be peaceful. I'll try my best and when I'm paranoid I'll pray to God to help me.
hey joe sounds to me like you are a little schizophrenic although some of the things you talk about could lead to ocd....i have suffered from ocd for seven years and i still do although its gotten much better, ive never told anyone about it i have conquered it on my own, i feel your pain ocd is a living hell, although schizophrenia is probably worse or just as bad...but i just want you to know that u can over come it, this world is full of evil but there is also good, block yourself out from the evil and stop the way u think, revolve your life around YOU and do not let other humans and thier evil ways make u suffer, grab hold of a bible....

I have a form ocd that has to deal with relationships...rocd. It screws with my head like all of these other things I'm reading on here. I just want to say that you guys are so strong to be going through all of this, and I just want to say that I am genuinely very proud of each of you for the fact that your here trying to get help..even if I do not know you. My mother had psychotic issues when she was younger: hallucinations, loud noises in her head like a train, dissosciation from her body, ocd. I feel like I have only experienced the tip of the iceberg compared to some of you on here. God bless you Joe, Cassie and Will and whoever else I have not read about. Get help, my mom went through these things throughout her childhood and finally got help and now she lives a normal life. I have strong beliefs that your problems will go with work and time.

Also any commercials about romance convince me that people plot to torment me by exiling me and depriving me of any possible relationship.
I don't want to be social anymore. I want to separate from the whole world and just be my own entity. I want to just travel the universe as a peaceful, stable energy and maybe return when things become less demonic on this unfortunate planet.
Joe,my heart breaks for you. I have a son with schizophrenia and he tried many medications over the years. After finally trying clozapine he has had a dramatic change in his life! He is very happy and does not know how he lived without it. He had severe anxiety and paranoia for many years. He also has OCD and is going to try different medications for the obsessions and compulsions that keep him from relaxing. At first with the clozapine you will have to have your blood drawn once each week for (I believe 6 months) Eventually you will only have to have one draw per month. My son was terrified to do this but he realized, what could be worse, living in the hell I'm in or having a blood draw. It turned out the blood draws were not bad at all and he has not problem doing it. He is so thankful for the clozapine, otherwise he may have ended his life by now. I highly recommend it. Good luck.....please get help. You don't deserve what you are going through!

i have schizophrenia as well as ocd. i have always thought everybody in the world knows me and hates me. i couldn't hold down a job. the best thing i ever did in this last five years was go to uni. but i left uni because i felt i was hated. although i believe some of my colleagues didn't like me, it got to a point i thought the school authorities were ploting to remove me from school by exploiting my memory problems so they were increasing the workload. i felt they were testing us on subjects way beyond our scope. i left because i felt they didn't want me and my closest family, my mother was involved. but sometimes later i realised all my ideas were not real but i can't tell my mother who still believes i am in uni 2 years after. things are not made easier by my family not understanding the problems as mental illness is a tabboo subject. my ocd is is as bad because it has robbed me of any meaningful social life as i have intrusive thoughts except when i am alone as now.

Everything you have just said I have been through. I hear voice in my head everywhere I go. Sometimes the voices are nice sometimes they are mean. The voices arent that loud but they are loud enough to hear. I felt like my teachers where ploting against me. I feel like my neighbors can hear my thoughts. I really into praying alot and I believe in God through past experiences. I dnt want to go back on medication because I hate the way medication feels it makes it worse. When I try to go to sleep sometimes it feels like im dying. Its sad because I cant study in class because I can feel what others are thinking. Maybe im gifted maybe its something else. Why doesnt our society talk about these things more. I know im not alone.

hello people i read the stories you have been saying,i think that most people are ok,because schizonfrinia is rare. its just you must have anxiety and probably some sort of ocd,and instead of going on with your normal day,you concentrate on this and just scare yourself.then you get paranoid because you think you are going crazy so you think wrong of yourself,after that you sleep less and anxiety tires you out and your mental state. so what you have to do is relax let it flow without doing nothing.Its like a car full of bullies are going on the road past you and show you signs that they want to beat you up,so what let them go by you and they will be gone,but what we do is run after them and never let them go(our thoughts) you are ok just think positive,live healthy and meditate and have patience and belief :).

main thing is dont try and deny that you have something wrong,nobody knows if its bad or good,just accept it that maybe you have something and just go on with your day and be in peace
