I did some thinking on my way back from the store about how when I was in the grips of my psychotic experience I was always very conscious of letting my niece who was a very young child at the time see that I was struggling. My brother, who hasn’t been around us much for the last decade, asked once what effect my psychosis may have had on her. My dad and I agreed that the answer was very little if any as I was always very careful to limit my blow ups and whatnot to when she wasn’t around. My parents have said that at the age of three she would however come to them now and then and say “uncle (mussel) is sad” That I guess I couldn’t hide from even her but everything else that was going on in my head I tried my best to keep in my head until it was safe to go crazy again.
Was anyone else ever able to hide their psychosis around certain people?
