Do you ever make an action on social media and then stew about the possible fallout for weeks? Or perhaps sometimes this will lead to psychosis?
I spoke to my psychiatrist about this. That was the term I used…action/reaction.
The other term I use with him is “responding to my own echo”. I throw something out there on social media…expect a reaction…and when it doesn’t come, I seek out information to justify a certain reaction. When it doesn’t come, I connect dots to make it fit.
I create a false/positive.
