Mike's Story

Check your reality 

Hi, my name's Mike.

How did I get here?

Well I've always liked being the center of attention and people tell me I have a great sense of humour.  After high school, I decided to learn a trade. I’ve been trying to live a healthy lifestyle - play a lot of hockey and haven't smoked any weed or done drugs for a couple of months. Everything was going well, but then I started feeling different. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something changed.

One day, I was taking the bus to work and noticed this woman, she was sitting across from me. She was just staring at me like she was mad at me. Then I kinda got freaked when I realized it wasn’t just the one woman, but the whole rear of the bus glaring in my direction. I got confused so I got off the bus way before my stop and walked the rest of the way. It was so strange.

Then I got frustrated because I couldn’t focus at work. My boss asked me if anything was going on, but I just shrugged it off. I'm worried about what he is going to think if I tell him.

And then the other day I was feeling real uneasy. I was sitting down having breakfast, and I could have sworn someone whispering my name. I wondered if I had a problem. So I was looking online, but I don’t even know what I’m looking for…
