I have talked with my doctor, and my counselor about the possibility

Resolved Question:

I have talked with my doctor, and my counselor about the possibility of schizophrenia. They say that that is not the case with me but I'm still in question about certain things. What could be the other possibilities if any?

Would smooth staring be an indication?
Would seeking sympathy be an indication?
Would temporarily imagining that TV is visible both ways be an indication? (even if you know it really is not possible).

Good Afternoon,


Sometimes during a severe depressive episode a person can display psychosis. Staring is not an indicator or schizophrenia or seeking sympathy.

There is a disorder called schizotylal personality disorder in which odd thinking is one of the many symtoms.

Below is some info on the disorder.
