Unhappy opinions please

Well, this is my first post here sooo don't make fun of me please.

Okay, I don't know really where to start off but, here it goes. Lots of the time I hear a low humming noise and after a couple minutes it gets louder, and voices come from it. But they're really muffled so it's hard to understand. When it happens I freeze where I'm standing or sitting and go into this weird trance like state. During that state the people keep talking and I have an anxiety attack. Sometime I see weird patterns or the walls and celing move.
Sometimes it's a really creepy laughing. Rarely I hear music, very clearly, it's like coming from nowhere.

Othertimes, I clearly hear people call my name and I see dark shadows out of the corner of my eye. That gives me an anxiety attack too.
Everything has gotten me paranoid, I think people can read my thoughts and that there are things in the trees watching me. I can't really go outside anymore.
I think other people can hear it too but are not telling me. Sometimes I think they want to see me scared like this. I'm pretty much sure of it.

If anyone can give me advice, I'd gladly take it.

Thank you

The exact same thing used to happen to me,
Sometimes they'd scream at me.
I was only diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder though there is schizophrenia in my family.
The voices and sounds went away once I got on meds.
Talk to your parents about it and ask them to see your doctor,
So that they can get a clearer diagnosis on what it is.
Make sure to tell your parents and your doctor what you just told us.

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
As someone told me lately, everyone deserves a chance to fly.

I'm scared to though, I've told my theripyst about the paranoia part and she didn't do anything. My parents wouldn't beleve me, I've told them some stuff about it when I was younger and they said I was trying to get attention. I really don't know what else to do.

Paranoia is one thing,
Schizophrenia is another.
Therapists are just that, therapists,
A Psychiatrist is the one who can diagnose disorders.
If your parents won't believe you,
Then just mention it to your doctor next time you go in for a check-up

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.

How would I bring it up? It's seems like an awkward conversation starter.

We would never make fun of you, we're glad you found us! I hope we can help.

First, I understand that you're frightened by what's going on, and based on that I think you should talk with your folks about it. And maybe see a doctor, who can assess this and offer some solutions.

You're right that we cannot diagnose you online, but just on what you're sharing, I doubt you've got schizophrenia. First, the odds are overwhelmingly against it, esp. childhood onset, it's really rare. Secondly, you seem far too intact, your thoughts are coherent and logical, you express yourself clearly, and you do not at all seem bizzare. There are a lot of explanations for the symptoms you're experiencing, you just have to get to someone who can figure that out.

So, the task now is to come up with a way to accurately and vividly describe your feelings and experiences to your folks, let them know how serious this is for you, and tell them you'd like to see someone. This might take a few convos over a period of time, they might not understand or want to accept that you're in as much distress as you are, but with time and consistency, hopefully they will come to better understand this. Just stay at it.

Yeh pretty much everything you said is just like me lol. I don't know what it is, I haven't been diagnosed with schizophrenia but it is mentioned somewhat in my records. I overdosed a while back and they held me in the hospital for about a week and then I had to go to some crisis center. But yeh I was never really diagnosed with it. And I feel the same way. Like I will hear voices and sounds and ask my friends or whoever is there when I'm hearing this if they hear it too. I get a weird look and "...no", just makes me feel stupid or like their playing a game. But um for advice, try telling your parents what you are feeling/experiencing. Hopefully they believe you and will support you if you do happen to have something wrong with you.

OK, If I'm correct and you do have schizophrenia, then you would probably have catatonic schizophrenia. I do have personal experiances with schizophrenia and yes I would tell my doctor if I were you. What you're experiancing is very serious. Next time you go into that state try calling for someone. if you can't, then youre probably going into catatonic stupor. not to scare you...but this is serious.
