Thank you for this. I've been experiencing auditory and visual hallucinations for months now and they can be really scary. I'm also 23, which is about the right age for these things to happen, and I've had like 1.5 psychotic breaks before so :// I haven't told anyone because I really genuinely do not want to know. If it gets so bad that I can't understand it's not real, I'll go somewhere, and I'm definitely freaked out about it, but I just...I categorically refuse to deal with this rn. No thank you.
Hey mate! I am sorry that you're going through these things. But like I said let's not stigmatize anything. I want you to watch this video completely: https://youtu.be/Q8y523l286E Hope this helps!
@akarsh9 Hey. I didn't stigmatize anything by saying I'm scared of new mental health symptoms I find scary and I'm not sure where you got that idea, but perhaps reread my comment, because I never showed any judgment toward anyone else.
@excalibre-hotmessexpress I wasn't referring to what you said mate. I was just talking generally. But please do watch that video! It really makes sense!
@akarsh9 Thank you. I want you to know I was not trying to be aggressive here-- and I definitely don't believe anything bad about people with schizophrenia. It's just, I'm already autistic. I have ADHD, OCD, and anxiety. I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder but I'm pretty sure it's actually bipolar disorder and they just missed it because most ppl can't tell the difference between being hyper because of ADHD and having mania, even though it's kind of obvious to the person having it, and...I don't want more things. I have too many things already. It doesn't matter what the thing is, I don't want it. I collected em all. Like...put it back.
@excalibre-hotmessexpress I knowww mental illness is like a grab bag but oh my God, my bag is full, when does it end?
