Nah, it's totally normal...ever watch a dog interacting with a schizophrenic? It's natural to be alert/on guard around someone you sense to be irrational in behavior.

No.No

A blunt, sad fact of life is that some people suffer from these problems. Your only hope is to learn how to accept it.

RE: Being Afraid of People?
Fear is a perfectly normal and useful reaction. It is designed to put you on alert.

So then you think the situation through, and decide whether THIS TIME the fear is not warranted. It doesn't mean it will never be warranted, it just applies to the current situation.

So your brain will over ride the fear. The fear will come back another time, it is a natural response to a stimulus and it is hard wired. Just take it for what it is - an uneducated alert that needs to be evaluated. Just acknowledge it and carry on.

Yeah, some dogs are wary around me too, they don't like a hyperrational behavior.

I was going to ask if that means you are a schizophrenic... but I won't because...
dogs hate me too!

RE: Being Afraid of People?
With medication, you should have nothing to worry about around her. Accept her and treat her as if she is normal. She probably wants kind and equal treatment, not for people to sit hesitantly next to her because they know of her illness.

You're not a bad person though. Just alert.

Dogs are wary around me because they know deep down that I will just fucking eat them. Cats on the other hand ... Bechased

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

You may have Xenophobia.

Or you're just afraid of what would happen if your aunt had no meds.
