    Hmm.. I'm clairvoyant and do readings for others. I've seen and heard voices since a child. Now I don't know the difference between you and me. When I see or feel something is close by. I ask.. do you want to be set free. Some people are stuck after dying. This is so interesting. So much to look into. Thank you for sharing. So others can understand more.

    I have it borderline. Schziotypal. I have some traits but not the full effect. Still messes you up man. I am also an illustrator, and I was also diagnosed at University.

    I go weekly to a group home of schizophrenics most of them talk to people I don’t see and have happy conversations with them These young men are not high functioning to care for themselves. Love each and everyone of them. There are many levels of this illness and no cure.

    Looks like a similar art style to that of the movie: "Cool World". Similar with the faces floating like that in this video.

    I had a road dawg that had schizophrenia. He struggled quite a bit but he was an amazing person. Loved being around him. His art was something out of this world. The way he used colors was mind blowing honestly. He could pick up any stringed instrument and play it.... I remember one night I was trippin shr00ms (he wasn't) and all night long he played the mandolin for me to make it a peaceful journey 😭😭😭 I still think about him and hope he's doing good. He'd walk right up to you stick his hand out and say "hi I'm a wingnut" 🤣🤣🤣 such a good dude.

    my son was diagnosed at 19.. he is now 43...he sees people who are not there and the voices in his head deafening.... yes he has medication but that has to be monitored and regularly re-evaluated as the progression get worse with time.. it is UNCURABLE..he is my Champion dealing with his illness everyday, struggling to be as normal as possible.

    This honestly has made me think of being checked out because I sometimes see or hear things that aren't there and it happens more when I am anxious. I just always felt like it was just me being crazy or actually ghost cause I've looked into that alot instead of maybe a more logical reason like schizophrenia.

    lotta ignorant comments here. schizophrenia is real and is a mental disorder. not spirits, not the devil, not god. it’s a human brain, which is capable of a lot of intense things.
