YoungSun24 quick question: did you ever have the virus EBV (Epstein-Barr virus) which causes Mono? More and more research links this viral infection to schizophrenia. I'm not diagnosing you but offering you the suggestion that maybe you should consider getting a blood titer test for Mono if you ever had it, b/c the amount of antibodies left over (if high) can indicate the presence of schizophrenia. Again, this is not a diagnosis as much as it's information for you.

I have attached an article about some recent studies done to connect viral infections to schizophrenia. It's very interesting to say the least, how viral infections that our body fights, can leave behind devastating side effects on our mental and physical health.

You sound normal to me and I have studied abnormal psychology. We all have some characteristics that exaggerate themselves at times and particularly during stressful times. Perhaps you may want to see a therapist to help with negative thoughts if you are not able to change them by yourself. I get a lot of negative thoughts and like the ones you describe. I find personally that trying to have gratefulness for all the good in ones life helps a lot. Then keeping busy doing things I like helps, too. Best wishes to you.
