Are you sometimes afraid to be yourself

Yea, functional is nice :slight_smile:

Idk I wasn’t really looking for answers but one day I came across this term and I was like omg there is a name for what I have!

But it’s true, no doctor has ever diagnosed me I could easily be off the mark, or mine is not a severe enough version or something.

That sucks man, I’m sorry to hear that.

I hope you have coping mechanisms.

the whole diagnosing thing can be kind of a work in progress, cuz if your symptom profile changes then they can change what they originally diagnosed you with.
its like science, working towards a more accurate and true solution

My coping isnt good. I guess its amazing in some ways that im able to live alone and still care for my essentials, but part of me is sane i suppose.

Maybe what I have is just anxiety. I guess that simplifies it :laughing:

I will ask them out of curiosity about depersonalisation anyways.

Anxiety can cause many symptoms. but psychosis is definitely separate from that.

It’s great that we have this forum isn’t it. I think it kind of helps us all cope a bit.

Just cos we see that we are not alone in this mental health condition and this side effects.

I’m afraid of my past psychotic self. I effing tried to kill myself. That’s effing tragic.

Fortunately, the voices told me to stop taking more pills before it was too late.
