I don't know the guy personally but I know he was diagnosed as one. Usually he acts pretty normal. I mean you would never be able to guess he's sick. He looks and acts like a normal guy most of the time, but sometimes he starts going nuts and saying some whacky fucked up shit. He once came to my door and was telling me that I yell into his window every morning, that I talk shit on people he knows, that he has a mask on his face that he can't take off. I mean he's lost it. The messed up part in all this, is that he targets me a lot, but his family has never even came over to talk to me to make things better with me. Today I was minding my own business , I literally walked outside for about a minute because of a craigslist sale. The buyer came, gave me the cash I handed him a pickup and that was it. We didn't even talk. It all took 1 minute, and on my way back in the schizo starts yelling "PUSSY!". In his mind I know he thinks i'm after him and that's why he's attacking me but it's starting to get old. He has been harassing me and my family, FORTUNATELY it hasn't been constantly. There's been about 7-10 incidents within a year. The worst thing he did was that he stuck his arm once through our window and stole a security camera that was inside our room, it was facing outside toward our car because there have been incidents where someone has been slashing our tires but that's another story. We were trying to be understanding with this situation so we didn't call the cops, but i'm starting to think we should've . Who knows if it would've helped though? I guess if anything the cops would realize how fucking crazy he is and it can go on his record. I don't know. 

I just wanted to talk about it. This guy is starting to really piss me off. I know if it had been me harassing his family, they'd have no mercy on me. We could always move, but the depressing thing about life is it always finds ways of bringing trouble to you. 


I hope this guy gets some help....

You seem generally sympathetic towards the guy so I don't know if you realise that you're using a lot of the language of prejudice.

Everyone who has experience of psychosis experiences it in a personal way, but from my perspective, there are a couple of factors that limit his ability to recognise and discuss these incidents with you or with his family who could talk to you.

Psychotic events are treated by the brain a bit like dreams, memory of them is vague and fades very quickly. Because your own perception is unreliable, you can question whether incidents even occurred and this causes a lot of confusion and a lack of understanding about the symptoms.

Furthermore, because public understanding and perception of psychosis is so poor, it leads to the sort of language you use and this limits sufferer's ability to discuss their disorder.

If I were to suggest a course of action for you, it would be to look into and understand, to a low level at least, sensitive ways of speaking to your neighbour and offer him a friendly ear and perhaps a door he can knock on for a safe place to be if he needs company and assistance.

I actually have tried to be very understanding with the guy . I talked to him twice as calmly and as understanding as I could be. It's just that he's attacked me so much and has said so much about me that sometimes it's hard not to take it personal . So when I call him crazy it's just because I'm pretty upset with it all . I know it sounds like I'm being closed minded. But trust me when I say I've been trying hard to be understanding .

Go to his family, give them a stern warning, if he does something new, call the cops, simple as that. Last thing anyone needs is some one doing insane shit, while you fear for your safety every single day because of one person. Buy a stun gun as well.

I don't think you sound closed minded at all. I think you've been very patient and tried to understand what his problems are, which is why I thought you'd appreciate knowing more about communication barriers in these cases.

jedigovnaUGdid u just liek ur own post


I do that sometimes but his post was definitely not worth a "like" because it was unnecessary, childish, and not the least bit clever.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

lol why are u waiting for his family to come talk to u. do u think he's going "hey i've been wigging out on jedigovna every now and again, just screaming at him and stuff" to them when he sees them?

go talk to them yourself for fucks sake
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Dude, you sound like my neighbor, he's always bitching about my random yelling and weird shit, but he's a nice guy, will say hi to me and stuff.  

I'm pretty sure my neighbors on all sides know I have issues, I'm actually ashamed of them and embarrassed sometimes, but 97% of the time I'm normal. 

They've only had to call the cops on me once, I was on drugs, booze, and having an episode, and was bleeding from somewhere on my head. 

Be nice when possible, I'm always embarrassed for like, weeks everytime I have an episode, I even phone people to say I'm sorry and explain myself, but most of the time they don't care and say thanks for apologizing. 

But at heart I'm a good person, and I've made amends to every bad thing I've done the best I can, idk about the dude who's your neighbor.

Oh, on my story, the cops didn't even arrest me that one time, they just sat with me a bit, then cleaned me up and walked me inside to go to bed, the local cops are also aware of my problem.  They're even more empathetic considering there's zero mental help resources where I live, it's a very small town. 

On the stealing camera thing, they may have done something similar, just a fine, or taken him to the hospital, or just made him give it back.

Unless there is a threat of self harm or violence towards others then you cannot ethically section someone.

MHDrunk He's actually yelled at me with his family around. They try to calm him down.  My mom has even came over and the guy was yelling at her in front of his family . They apologized to her but never me lol. It doesn't really matter though. I would talk to them, but they aren't the kind to have conversations with, his family is always outside with loud Mexican music and beer lol.  besides I have always sensed they don't like me. I mean i've heard them negatively talk about me and I don't even know them. I've had my own problems as well just like lots of other people. I had years of problems with agoraphobia so they would always judge saying something is wrong with me, lazy, loser etc and I don't even know them so I don't know why they concern themselves with my business. now they're son is all mentally fucked.. weird how life works isn't it?  I'm good with the landlord here and have sold on E bay for him a good amount of times, he knows how I am, and that I wouldn't go around causing problems, the schizo spreads rumors that i'm constantly harassing him and of course it isn't true .I called up the land lord and told him about it. One more time and they're out...

I never attacked anyone physically, but I overreacted to the smallest things, and made a fool of myself.

have you ever been in a big room with a bunch of people talking and got so distracted that you couldn't even hear yourself think? Well imagine being perfectly normal for your entire life until young adulthood, but then something changes. It's getting more difficult to concentrate in classes, you start sensing things that aren't there, hearing voices that aren't there. And I don't mean thinking voices, actually hearing them sometimes as if they are right there talking to you. And they say bad things, very bad things. You try to make them go away, and sometimes you can, but other times they don't leave. It's a constant barrage of words and senses that are not real. Then even when the voices are gone, you start to lose your ability to think. You start to say things that make no sense to other people, which frustrates you because they make perfectly good sense to you. It starts to get so bad that you can't even get a point across to people anymore. Then people start to treat you different, like you are a pet that has no real contribution to anything in their lives. Now you never interact with anyone accept the voices inside your head, and you spend the rest of your days feeling very very alone.


So yeah a few times a year you get inconvenienced by your schizophrenic neighbor, but just try and understand what he must be going through.
