But every song ever is about me. They say 'you' and when I listen that's me. It can't be anyone else.
This is not a coincidence!

I have a very good friend who always acted pretty weird and was into conspiracy theories but then abruptly switched into schizophrenia mode at age 27. He became convinced his landlord and the government were working together to send him subliminal messages on the internet (e.g. he believed when he google searched something, the results were being tailored to him to send him specific threatening messages). Eventually he started accusing me of being in cahoots with "t h e m" and he would interpret every little thing that I did as having some double and malicious meaning towards him. I don't even know where he is now. Yeah. This is honestly reminding me a lot of that.

Sounds heart breaking to witness someone you're close with go through that.

Seem like omega's highly functioning, tho, right? He is apparently capable of gainful employment, as evidenced by his guitar rigs n such. His voice doesn't strike me as that of a suffering, manic schizophrenic

By way of contrast, when I lost my mind via a paranoid/manic episode on cymbalta circa 2008, I burnt through all my savings on impulse purchases, was unable to keep a job or any friends, and even my family found me distasteful...

Just saying

Come to think of it, during that time period, I was convinced God was sending Joshua Homme messages to put in his lyrics just for me. So I am at least tangentially familiar with the sensations omega describes. So ... just hope he's ok

At least when it comes to alcoholism, functional alcoholics are way worse than those that hit rock bottom and need to seek help to survive.
They'll just keep going with their addiction and convince themselves they are perfectly fine and don't need help, alienating all those who try to help them along the way. And slowly but surely it'll reach a point where it becomes unsustainable but sometimes it can be too late.

Not sure how it goes with other mental illnesses tho.

My sister is schizoprenic. She was never a conspiracy theorist. She did great in school and was objectively typical if just a little quiet/shy. After going away to college she became very depressed and dropped out. At that point she was being treated for depression, but it did little. She has spiralled out of control too many times during the progression of her disease. She is now convinced that she is being monitored (many times she accused me of doing it) and files on her computer moving around or deleting themselves etc. She asks me if Katy (pet dog) is real or a replacement. She can't drive, has failed classes despite studying for hours. There's a lot to list but I shouldn't. It's been very tough and I can't imagine being her

If someone is mostly functional and doesn't decompensate ever they probably wouldn't be diagnosed with schizophrenia. Especially if they don't have negative symptoms (such as avolition, anhendonia, poverty of speech, etc). However, they might be diagnosed with schiozotypal personality disorder or possibly schizoid personality disorder if they are very withdrawn. Not that one couldn't be diagnosed with schizophrenia, but if it's sort of a lower-level delusional orientation to the world without exacerbations that doesn't interfere with several different realms of functioning. Also, if someone is past their 20s especially, without a severe episode, it's unlikely but not impossible they'll be diagnosed with the full disorder in the future.

Another possibility is that they wouldn't be diagnosed with anything, if their functioning is perfectly fine in intimate relationships, working, friendships, personal meaning, etc. It's not diagnosable to be weird

of course, but believing a public figure is obsessed with you or sending you personal messages in their work is a little um.... that's more than just being weird. That's definitely a delusion of some sort.

Just because you percieve something to be true doesn't make it true. Have some humility. I saw an alder in Secaucus today- is that related to you?

What is it even supposed to mean/accomplish for crazy, subtle, interpretable things like this to happen vs Billy contacting you and being like yo man let's jam? Because unless there's some conflict of interest or reason to keep secrets, people don't really sneak around. It's not like I get cryptic emails from mustard vendors and then I want a hot dog. I just want a hot dog, so I get it.

I suppose i'm more familiar with the concept of addiction which will always have an escalation of some sort that will render the person unfit to function properly if given enough time.
Mental conditions might not, and can just be the way the person operates normally from what you say. That's interesting.

The Friday before the Saturday morning of the ticket sale for 2-6-00 Edge show, I was the first person in line. I remember calling Live 105 and they let me on the air. good times. Moments later, 2nd person in line comes strolling up... It's Monte LDS...in full Zero shirt-silver pants outfit, "Hi, I'm Jonathon. Would you like a burned copy of Machina."

and without being too cryptic...the strange Email I get from a James2000 that reads "070" I surmise was sent by someone who was watching me (telepathically) and when completing the reading of that Gospel, sends me the code via that email.

that's true but if it doesn't cause him to seek out the object of his delusion or be dysfunctional in other ways i'm not sure it's enough to diagnose anything, even just simple delusional disorder, besides perhaps one of those personality disorders previously mentioned
