I've never been diagnosed or treated by nurse practitioners before-
bc I haven't been entirely honest, necessarily.

When I was young, I'd see apparitions of ghosts- I'm a very spiritual person to this day. I've also experienced these things w other people, so I don't think it's necessarily 'inside my head', you know?

But on a daily basis, I have conversations w myself. If I'm alone, out loud... if not, I keep it to myself.
I don't usually hear voices.. mostly just energy/vibes and I respond to what I feel is being said.

So because of that- I suspect it's from my childhood trauma.. that residual violent, humiliating energy that is engraved into my mind, still trying to commandeer the narrative of my life. I am paranoid often, but that could also be the trauma. My GAD/cPTSD collaborating in negative ways.

But I also worry, since my ignorance on schizophrenia and similar disorders, that I should seek diagnosis, then treatment, when I have insurance again. What is schizophrenia like? How would you know?

You said in another thread you suspect you may have DID,do you think maybe seeing a professional and talking to them about what's going on/been happening might be a good idea?

ETA:Seeking a diagnosis and treatment when you have insurance again is definitely the route to take

From what you said it doesn’t seem like you’re hearing voices because you’re aware that the voices are yourself.

I talk to myself all the time!

I've been told that schizophrenia encompasses a broad number of syndromes. You don't usually hear voices but sometimes do?

True it’s not usually as easy as definitely yes or definitely no
