Doctor :   Hearing voices differently and perceiving wrong vision are delusions
User :   like their voices sound different? not in my case
User :   normal voice, just not understandable
Doctor :   ok, then i could think of Schneider's first-rank symptoms
User :   ...idk what that is

Doctor :   these sound like negative symptoms to me
User :   thats y i used this
Doctor :   But you cant let it go ,
Doctor :   you may have to visit one , as if i am right you will land into problems more serious
User :   so, chronic headaches, brain fog, chronic nausea/abdominal pain, difficulty speakin/understanding = schizo
Doctor :   yes, could be
Doctor :   early symptoms , the "first rank " i said
User :   any other ideas?
Doctor :   I could think of cognitive disturbances also , but your symptoms fit into schizo more
