Dealing with schizophrenia


A few days ago I found out that I have schizophrenia.

I just have trouble keeping up with what's real and what's not. I thought creating a dream journal would help, but I get too lazy to write every morning. I started to notice that I'm not really mixing up dreams with reality. Instead I'm confused by reality itself. And then there's the paranoia.
It's like I feel that the worst will happen. Somehow I know it will and it terrifies me. But I'm not sure if it has already happened or even will happen. I'm sorry if I'm confusing you.
Does anyone else have this? Any advice on how to cope with it?

I don't know what I'm doing.

Can you be more specific?

Instead I'm confused by reality itself?

damn that sucks. I'm terrified of ever getting an illnes like that where I'm losing touch with reality and I don't even know it.
Are you on medication? And i'm afraid I can't really offer any advice, i'm sorry. All I can give is my sympathy

Sorry about this.
This probably sounds silly, but I thought creating a dream journal would somehow help me. I had moments where I would confuse dreams with real life. It was mostly just little moments like forgetting things I did the other day and believing it was a dream.

About the confused by reality itself part: I started to realize that everything is confusing me in life. I don't know if I can trust my own memories anymore. It's scary because I'm always worried that the worst will happen. It's like life is so confusing that I can't put pieces together anymore and I believe it's getting worse.

I don't know what I'm doing.

Thank you. It's fine.
Yes I'm on medication. I had to change a few over the months but there's one that really helps me sleep. so yeah that's good.
