Discerning memories

Anybody have issues figuring out if certain memories are actually real? It’s rough. I think that’s another horrible thing about this disease.

Like I have memories that I KNOW are real or at least seem so realist that they seem to have been real… but then you don’t really know and have to contradict yourself… it sucks really, not knowing what’s real and what’s not.

Yep, I have vivid dreams that confuse me

Interesting…

I don’t have dreams but I kept having “flashbacks” while in psychosis and I still question today if they were real or not…

I’m not positive but I think the mind can create memories by linking certain ideas, themes and content of real memories, into ones you think are real.

It’s just like dreams.
