    My ex-stepdaughter suffered from some psychotic episodes, two of which were severe enough for her mother and I to check her into a hospital. She would become very manic and had to be watched 24/7 when she was having an episode. It was very sad to see her suffer like that.

    That sounds super rough; I'm sorry you have to be apart of that, and I'm sorry for her as well.

    I was recently diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, I'm just curious what other peoples experiences with psychosis are.

    I’m not sure. Maybe? I’m manic depressive and have been hospitalized, but I didn’t really care why I was there so I don’t remember what they said. I’ve acted pretty fuckin nuts at times tho :shifty:

    Fair enough! Psychosis is a little different from being manic, but can be similar and happen at the same time. When I was psychotic I thought I was an alien and everyone was a government agent out to get me lol

    My ex's daughter claimed that she needed to get to Orlando immediately because she owned a hot nightclub there and she needed to take care of her business. She said people were stealing from the business...and she was extremely pissed that we weren't cooperating with her. :(

    I feel like I’ve never been manic :shifty: but I guess I must have been lmao. Was being an alien fun apart from the government people?

    Aw man, that's so rough... You can definitely become psychotic while manic. It's not a good time. It can be very hard on the people around you while you're psychotic. I'm still shocked my fiance is with me.

    You know, I really wish it was fun. It was actually a lot of pressure. I felt like I had some sort of mission to save the world, and all this information I was attaining was to help me with that mission. I also believed if I had said any of this information out loud a government agent would either kill my best friend, kill me, or the world would shut down like the matrix. It was very isolating. I only recently had my dose increased so I'm still dealing with a lot of paranoia around work and my co workers, and I still believe my medication is a placebo, but I'm taking it anyways because I've been told it makes me better.

    There was this homeless man, I read about somewhere, where he thought that government agents were out to get him. Then he got treatment and his paranoia completely went away. Then he went back and asked them to return it because he liked life much better back in those days, lol. :rofl:

    July and auAugu of 2015.

    My first medication triggered manic episode.
    I had an affair with a married man 15 years older than me who had me trying to end his marriage for him. Ended my marriage to be with him and then realized he was a shitty person and I was being dumb. At some point I turned to escorting to pay my half of the bills and save up to get my own apartment and provide for my daughter on top of my regilar day job.Crashed into a depression around August 12, planned to not live to see my daughter's 2nd birthday on the 22nd etc.


    I should have been admitted at that point but I had zero support system and no one lose enough to me to know what was going on. As luck would have it, an old highschool friend messaged me and idk. He just changed my outlook enough that I decided to get help rather than end my life.

    I had a bad one randomly one day, I noticed I got nearer to psychosis when I couldn't see the difference between men and women anymore, women look like men and men look like nothing. But then I fell to a poem, "Zu Beiden Handen", after interpreting it and following Heideggers Denkweg psychosis has become a joke.

    I don’t think so. I was super depressed and didn’t get out of bed for 3 days except to pee. No food, no phone, just bed, a friend came over and invited me drinking with him and some cute girls and I was like nah, not moving.

    Couldn’t do that now lol... dog would be pissed, I’ve had days where I wanted to do it, but responsibilities say no. Kinda wanted to die recently, but then who’d take care of the dog.

    That was a couple years ago and I’ve gotten past it, but it was scary at the time
