Well fortunately I did not experience hallucinations or voices. I experienced delusions of persecution, delusions of reference, erotomanic delusions. I was paranoid about the number 666 which for some odd reason is on all the police cars in my country. I thought we were living in a highly sophisticated surveillance system to the point that people could read our thoughts. I thought the media/radio/tv/internet was monitoring and tracking me and had special messages for me, talking specifically to me. When i would hear a song, by Hozier for example, I would believe it was written for me with 100% conviction. It was actually quite debilitating/disabling. I felt violated all the time. I felt I had no privacy.
On top of this, I experienced social withdrawal, anhedonia, apathy, depression and anxiety.
I was unwell for three years from 23 to 26. I am v much recovered now. Im 28. But I have not had a relapse yet. In retrospect, at the time, I was reading alot of conspiracy theories, dystopian fiction, Biblical prophecy etc that precipitated my first break with reality. I took it all to heart. It started when I began to believe the infamous Rothschild family were monitoring me. I don't think it will happen again.
