I have a huge fear of psychosis as well as the more severe mental illnesses. I am diagnosed with anxiety and I have a little bit of depression from it. It's been a constant battle and this morning I started on the medication. I have thoughts about what if I see or hear things. What if I think god is sending me signs or controlling my thoughts. Which part of me knows isn't realistic but I'm kind of starting to believe it. Should I go to the hospital and get checked out for psychosis ?

why are you asking us if you should go get help for your mental illness?

Hidden, it sounds like obsession about psychoses and fear. Do you talk to your Dr. About this? I think you would know if you were hearing things. I also have this fear but it helps to talk to my therapist. what meds are you on?It sounds like anxiety to me. Good thoughts for your recovery.

I can't answer what you should do, but sometimes anxiety and depression are signals telling us that something needs to be changed in our lives.
