Man With Schizophrenia Records Episode To Give Glimpse Into Life With The Disorder

Scottie Long is just one of many schizophrenia patients who has documented his episodes on his YouTube channel. What makes his videos so truly fascinating is the heightened awareness that Long experiences when he distinguishes a hallucination from reality. “Obviously, this probably is an episode, but I just want to show you what can happen to you or your kid if you don’t get your s— done and get it done early, for detection, for any kind of mental illness. This is what life could be like,” Long says in the video. You can witness his hallucinations in real time as he answers a phone, although it doesn’t ring, and as he checks outside his house for “people watching him,” although the camera shows there is no one there.
