Theres lady who always pops up and interupts my conversations. She'll interject and add her thoughts to whatever i'm talking about... I usually just ignore her because the only person I told doesn't believe me, my sister. She just walks around with me and talks. I never listen to her, usually I just ignore her. Idk if shes part of my imagination or a ghost or something i'm not sure. She doesn't tell me to do stuff she just talks. She told me her life story once. She's 22 and just got divorced from her husband because he cheated on her with one of her sisters and has eighteen siblings. She also has a twin Annabelle Lucia (her name is Jezebel). She doesn't work, she said her occupation is human accompanier and thats why she follows me. She looks goth and has purple hair too. She's been "accompanying" me for 6 months (since my mom got remarried and we moved). She first popped up one day when I opened my window in my room to look around. I'm in the basement and my window goes to a weird dirt room. She popped up and was aasking to be let in. It kinda scared me but i'm paranoid like that so I thought my imagination was just acting up but then she just started following me and talking. Sorry for this being so long, but does it sound like i'm schizo?? Or do I just have an overactive imagination?

We arn't professionals, so we can't diagnose, but it this has persisted for 6 months, you could possibly have something going on. I'd advise talking to your parents about it, make an appointment with your family doctor and see if they have any psychiatrists that they can refer you to so that you can get a proper analysis.

Hallucinations and delusions arn't sole indicators of Schizophrenia, though 50-70% of schizophrenics experience them. There are positive and negative symptoms to the disorder:

You may find the FAQ (http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/showthread.php?t=13538) sticky useful, it has a lot of great information on symptoms and types of schizophrenia.

Ok... I'm not gonna tell anyone tho... but I think she's just there. I don't think i'm schizo, She told me she's My human acompannier again and I asked her what that was and she told me that she's from my sub concious, so I couldn't control her. Idk I been try to pay more attention to her. Maybe I just see people lol

Okay... if it starts getting out of hand though, such as this hallucination telling you to harm yourself or others, or to do something that's against your moral code or the law, you should really say something. My best bet though is that if you're aware that it's a hallucination, you'll probably be okay. It's generally the ones who don't recognize them as hallucinations that go off of the deep end.

You seem to realize she's not real.
I'm agreeing with steph (Epiphany), you're probably okay unless she starts telling you to do something wrong or hurt yourself/others.

it's ncie to have soemone who can't/won't judge to chat with once in awhile.

Honestly don't think you should tell anyone unless it gets bad or it's coming with other stuff you're not telling us about... like, being really depressed, or suicidal or not being in control or something like that. Just because people are waaaaay to pill-happy and might try to medicate any 'quirk' out of you..

There are positive and negative symptoms to the disorder

There are positve ones?

"Positive" and "Negative" I should say,
The word is used in a different sense :P

It really sucks,
I see a young girl, roughly 8, she wears a white dress and has short blonde hair.
I only see her at night, when everyones in bed (which is like, 10pm at my house), so she's either shy, or I'm lonely...
=P
Either way, I'd like yo speak to her, it'd be nice, She seems relatively peaceful.
first, I'm going to talk to one of my brothers about it, then, if i need to, I'll speak wh my mum about it. =/
then... I might go further to a doctor, or something, i'd rather not...
