I don’t hallucinate at all…never have, but I have schizo-affective disorder-depressive type. I mainly suffer from delusions about philosophical thought experiments (I ruminate a lot) and have negative symptoms due to medications. I also have anxiety.

I’ve been diagnosed and told I have/might have a lot of things. This includes: schizo-affective depressive and bipolar, treatment-resistant undifferentiated schizophrenia, Aspergers, OCD, anxiety, depression, bipolar, possible personality disorder, substance induced psychosis, brain damage, migraines, and psychotic depression.

Psychosis for me is a loss or near loss of reality. For three years I tried to prove nothing existed and was very solipsistic. I thought I was a brain in a vat or in a computer simulation and that everything was fake or an illusion, and that reality was really two-dimensional. My vision was very distorted (severe derealization) but I never heard or saw anything. It was just me trying to prove stuff I was experiencing (and gathering evidence), which didn’t conform to reality.

Good luck with this.

Being healthy is sometimes a full time job.

I think it sounds like you’re on the right track.

One way I heard it put was that “Neurotics build castles in the air, and psychotics live in them.”
