      Yes! I'll think "no this isn't real, it's just a delusion" but then the other half of my mind says "but what if it's not and you're actually on to something?" and it just goes downhill from there 😅

      Yes all the time. I had a doctor write me off when I explained this once told me I had overactive ocd because people with schizo “don’t know it’s not real” and I knew it was BS because my best friend has good days where he knows it’s not real. So just know it’s common. Sometimes they trick me though that’s when it’s dangerous lol

      Yes!! I’m glad I found this post, I used to always wonder if I was just “making up my illness” if there was even a small part of me that didn’t buy into my delusions.

      I think it's the paranoid thinking of mine. I know something isn't real, but then I question if I'm wrong and what happens if I'm wrong. I can't trust myself, haha.
