I am from USA. I am diagnosed for Schizophrenia. I am so sick of being laughed at in my home. I feel so ashamed when I am seeking out the source of a sound and they say it is in my head. I understand I have problems, but I would never laugh at their problems. I do not even know what advice to give my family to help me feel less insulted. I have to ask a lot whether they can hear a sound or I will ask what a lot because I think they r talking. I just feel like my family is laughing at me when I am confused. I dont want them to pretend they hear it but at least listen and reassure me that is not real. I feel so small when they laugh and say its in my head. I am at a loss for what I actually want from them. Sometimes I try to hide that I am hearing something just to avoid their "it is in your head" comments.
