    I really don't know where to put this, sorry mods, I just need to get this off my chest.

    My best friend was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia and they said he may become bi polar in his mid 20's. He has been hearing whispering and sometimes a howling noise. He has been coping with this for a couple years and it's taking most of his mental capacity to appear normal on the outside. It's very difficult for him, and quite frankly, I'm scared for him.
    We are-correction, were very close. When I would go to his house and hang out, you could tell he wasn't fully there. He seems slightly paranoid because of the voices he's hearing at times.
    Sometimes he doesn't really recognize me and has very random mood swings, that didn't happen all to often. Considering how difficult this is for me, I can't imagine how hard it is for him and his family, on top of his parents being divorced. I'm trying to help out as best as I can, but it's just getting really difficult.
    That's what I wanted to say, I don't really want to go on. If you took the time to read this, thanks, I just needed to get it off my chest...

    It seems like he hasn't been had it for very long, only a couple of years, right? From what I know, that is the worst time in which symptoms are far more severe. Do you know if he is just hearing things, or is he seeing things/people as well?

    Thanks Cajun

    Yes. I do not know if he's seeing things, I'll have to ask, I'll probably have an answer tomorrow.

    Ok, I know that over time, people that see fake people usually get used to it, and they typically only see certain characters, so they know who is real or fake. I am not sure about sounds alone though. Is he on medication?
