That actually isn't retarded. It turns out people for a long time did not understand the concept of personal thought. There was a very famous man back in the days of knights and **** , he would stand up in front of a crowd and preform his act. He would hold up a book and read it, TO HIMSELF. Which sounds retarded, but it turns out the idea that we have personal thoughts and have the ability to restrain them isn't a born concept. So assuming the tumbler kid was somewhat young, it makes perfect sense he thought in that way.

-Be me
-Take ecstacy at drunken rave
-Go back to some randoms flat
-Sit in the dark and try to stop thinking
-Hear voices in my head that aren't mine
-What have I done
-Turn modem off as the light is making too much noise
#104 to #9 - anon (03/15/2013) [-]
That happens to me sometimes too. But im able to control what is being said and eventually have conversations with the fictional voices in my head.

It's good fun at times.

-why do you have to talk like this
-this is a stupid way to tell a story
-one could just simply tell the story in a paragraph
User avatar #133 to #109 - johnnyafire (03/15/2013) [-]
Because it helps narrow a story down into something faster and easier to read which is ALSO in order instead of having to TL;DR your way out of a paragraph or two long story.

I hear voices when I try to go to bed... They tell me random things though, not emotionally scarring things like most scizos. I mostly hear stuff like "The refridgerator is turtle stew on red sundays", which doesn't make any sense at all.

Sometimes though, this happens when I'm with people, and then, my response to a question might be one of these random voices, because it's the last thing I "thought" of. Once, I said to my girlfriend: "Can you put a sign on your mouth so that I know where to put the garbage next time?", and "Sorry, I just bumped into the tumble dryer." Both of these happened whilst laying in bed, and involuntarily.

She knows I'm a scizo though, so she doesn't mind...

I'm not a doctor, but from what I've learned thus far in my psych major...that doesn't sound like schizophrenia. Schizophrenia doesn't only occur when you're falling asleep and it's not just characterized by hearing voices. What you're describing sounds like hallucinations induced by transitioning from wakefulness to sleep. Weird thoughts are common before you fall asleep and some people do voice them. I know for sure I'm not schizophrenic and one night I asked my roommate, "How does Tupperware breathe when it's stacked inside other Tupperware in the closet?" And she's been known to tell me she doesn't have shoes, so she can't go to sleep.

As I said earlier to anon, I also have moments where I can't remember what I've been doing for the past 5 minutes, or how I got somewhere. I see your point though.

They occur sometimes when I'm not falling asleep either. Like with my girlfriend there

sounds like my friend who texts me semi-frequently at 4 AM saying **** like "Adam save me, socks are death" "Adam, I can't remember your name" and various stupid **** like that.

One time, as my friend was falling asleep she said "I.. I can't... I can't sleep while you're watching porn!

I wasn't even watching porn, I swear.

I think that would be a good way of entertaining yourself. Its rare that i'm in a state of mind where my thoughts are rambling off without me noticing that their composition may be as ****** up and randomly generated as a dream. The ducks dont like it when you pour cement on the floor
User avatar #123 to #105 - vexaton (03/15/2013) [-]
I find it funny to daze off like that, but it's not that fun really. In some situations, it happens when I least expect it, and it is quite annoying. It makes me bipolar aswell, and quite ambivilent. I can be quite rude, and then later excuse myself and everything, just to be rude 10 minutes later without noticing.
User avatar #124 to #123 - daentraya (03/15/2013) [-]
I see.. I dont normally talk to people at all, and if i were to talk to someone, they'd probably understand.
Bipolar doesnt sound particularly fun
User avatar #125 to #124 - vexaton (03/15/2013) [-]
Yeah it makes conversation with other people, especially my girlfriend, hard. If she does something wrong, I nag her ass about it for an hour, and then after that I start crying and appologizing, forgiving her for everything, and I end up being the one getting comfort... Hope it goes away some day
#33 to #11 - anon (03/15/2013) [-]
That doesn't sound like schizophrenia, that sounds more like what happens when people start to fall asleep. In the transition between wakefulness and sleep you begin to have hallucinations...

I've done this before, but only once that I can remember. I said "I want to eat something triangle tonight, like a cherry popsicle." and when my mom questioned me, I tried to verify what I said by comparing popsicles to battered fish fillets before fully waking up and realizing what the **** I was babbling about.

Im going to get thumbed down because nobody will belive this but **** you all it happened, I saw the files

My psychology teacher was an itemsistrator at a mental health facility for 10 years and was very involved in the process of legal admitted patients simply because of the unusual nature of their cases. The most unusual man that was ever admitted was a highly organized schizophrenic who could comunicate very clearly and sensibly. he had no symptoms of catatonia. He would hallucinate quite frequently but no more than any other patients. he did however have the most un usual delusion that I have seen, or my teacher had seen. The man upon speaking to him would reply that he was "Corrugg" a Talking Cardboard Box and was the arbiter of life.

While they were trying to process him to begin the 72 hour evaluation. he lashed out and struck a nurse. when my former teacher heard the racket in the hall he left his office to find the nurse who said that all she was trying to do was draw blood. as my teacher approach the commotion he began to hear the man screaming: "No you fools...You cannot take blood from I...Corrugg is a God among men, the messenger of peace... furthermore I have no veins within me to take your precious blood from...I am a box made of nothing but cardboard and devine will!!!"
When they were finally able to take blood from him the man snapped into a silent catatonic panic for days... the doctor said he was traumatically shock at the sight of his own blood and struggled to cope with the realization of his humanity.

He would later die....

I have never seen any other case studies quite like it

i have conversations with people i know in my head, imagining their reactions to stories and such. I think its my way of deciding what to tell people as i was and am a bit of a loner so don't know how to talk to people. so my friends tend to be templates for people in my head.

this gave me the question what I have been looking for. is my way of thinking the normal way.

and yes it is
#76 - Nameloc (03/15/2013) [-]
Sometimes if I focus enough, I realize that all (and I mean all) of my thoughts are pre-thought milliseconds before the thought is stated.
So for instance, if this were to be my thought:
"How would one run up a wall?"
By the time the thought gets to "ow" in "how" the entire thought was planned in my subconscious.
(So basically, every thought is pre-thought of, making the continuity of stating said thought redundant. Thus you could concentrate and hold two separate individual thoughts at the same time.)

Does this happen to anyone else? (Is there a name for this?)

Okay, my explanation is bad. It's 2am, and I'm hours from hitting the 24hr mark.

I remember watching a documentary a while ago in which the presenter was hooked up to this CT-scanner type thing and was asked to pick out one of two images that were flashed to him on a screen.
By looking at the scanner the scientists could tell which image he was going to pick, even when he himself hadn't decided yet...
#131 to #76 - spamzor (03/15/2013) [-]
Well, ofcourse. If you really want to speed up your tinking, try to avoid sentences and go for concepts or mental imagery to make a clear statement to yourself. I only think in 'spoken word' when I feel the need to give the subject more weight.

Your message gave me the impression that you do not do this, which is a bit disturbing. Is it not the natural state for when a person is focused on a single thing? Same thing as sports, you don't consciously push down your legs after a while, you just run. Or vidja games for that matter.

I can't fully concur with your synopsis though. You claim that stating the thought is redundant, but the conclusion of the thought must first be reached before you can continue to another, seperate, individual thought. I always reasoned with myself that the sensation of two seperate thoughts (you know you tried to do it.) is simply the brief realization of the conclusion of your earlier thought, and the trained, fast start of your next line of reasoning.

There are times when I get bored and stop letting my mind express thought like that. It speeds me up, but sometimes I lose track of what I'm thinking about. Still if anon is correct, then I have scared the **** out of some Asians.
