René Descartes "I think there for I am"
Reading this has been an exposure for you?
This is exactly what I'm fighting with. Honestly, I've been having to embrace the idea that I'm crazy so to speak and to keep saying "maybe, maybe not". I've also been on Zoloft for about a month.
I’m been on Zoloft for a little bit as well. Do you find that you have any compulsions? Mine seem to just be avoiding the thoughts or trying to convince myself the world is real by reasoning it out
I am currently struggling with this exact thing actually. I've been having a hard time recently with adjusting back to normal life altogether and have been diagnosed with PTSD. I was recently triggered by the coming out of the Tesla bot and reading theories about AI. The goal I'm told is to be okay with uncertainty. This is super scary for me, but I've been through similar before. I don't have any tips other than talk to your therapist about this and you're not alone ❤
Hi i winder how are you doing I have the same issues The schizophrenia ocd fear which made me litterelly read all about prodrome stage and ultra high risk people and how it would be turning delusional Yesterday i started the existing ocd sh** I started to obsses if i believe those thoughts about no one is real and none of their reassuring would benefit me because i obsses about even thier reality which make feel im going delusional I wonder what is going with you and if we can chat a little bit
Hey there, i also struggle with wondering if anyone else is real along with a lot of other existential themes. let me know if u ever wanna talk
@tarek kammar I struggle with this too, you arr not alone
This! I know it's an old thread, but I'm right there in it at the moment. It's hell.
It’s so illogical, but your mind makes it real (no pun intended). Just need to keep going with “maybe, maybe not, accept uncertainty”.
