So I’ve just been thinking how mind blowing it is that most people who have experienced psychosis have experienced very similar symptoms.. voices, hallucinations, paranoia, writing LOADS, the voice naming it self as a separate person I think is quite common. These were my main symptoms and although I haven’t done much research as it just gives me anxiety, I think these happen to most. I just don’t understand how something so deep and horrific can follow a very similar pattern in others.. it almost makes it feel god like or something. Like someone has created it. I’m not religious and I promise I’m not unwell I’m just feeling overwhelmed and curious about this illness. I’m in a really good place a year and a half post illness. Whenever I try to research these things nothing really comes up except standard pages talking about the basics of psychosis.
I try and relate it to anyone can get a broken leg or diabetes etc. people’s physical issues can follow a similar pattern. But this illness is just SO different to those things. The physical illness seem to make more sense, but psychosis is so in depth, almost like going to a different dimension. I wonder if there are any books on what I’m trying to get across?
Why is this psychosis? Why does this happen during psychosis? How is the brain capable of creating this massive in depth story and playing it out to you with hallucinations/ voices/ paranoid thoughts etc. Mine was like a movie/ story. With each Hallucination/ voice etc unfolded more of this story that my psychosis was based on (institutionalised corruption, capitalism, an evil in the world) being played only to me. Anyway, any comments almost understanding what I’m trying to get across would be a help haha Xx
