Default is my friend a schizo?

he says every now and then he hears voices, he also says he see's demon's as an omen of when some catastrophe is about to happen right before it happens (as in, natural disasters)

he believes he can tell when there is a 'rip in reality' and he believes everything stops while these rips are open, including himself, but unlike everyone else, he can keep thinking while there is a rip in reality, and he sees everyone freeze for a few seconds.

he suffers from depression and has attempted suicide once.

he doesn't understand how other people live their lives without seeing or hearing or generally understanding the things he does.

I'm worried about him, he is seeing someone for his depression, but do you guys think he might have schizophrenia?

if you can figure out this code, your a super genus: 010101014241313322215352
honestly, it will take you a good hour, minimum. and you still may never figure it out.
no cheating! figure it out yourself. (at least only with family and friends, don't ask on the internet)
pm me if you figure it out
anyway, hi, i'm bisexual. pm me, i'll talk about pretty much anything.

Default Re: is my friend a schizo?

You answered your own question. He's depressed. Therefore, cannot be diagnosed with schizophrenia, as stated by the DSM criteria. Symptoms cannot occur during a manic or depressive episode to be considered schizophrenia. Now, there's still the possibility of schizoaffective, but it isn't your place to be contemplating his mental state unless you are quite worried about him, but even then, leave it to a therapist.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

I agree with Syvelocin. If your friend is experiencing psychosis and mood problems it sounds like schizoaffective disorder. I would suggest that he speak to a doctor.
