An example: today I walked past a parked car with a lady in council uniform inside. The first thought was maybe she was surveiling me. But this idea was dismissed in a matter of seconds.
Before APs this situation would have set me off for days and days. The explaination of this meeting would snowball into a huge delusion.
My point is that for me the APs don’t get rid of the initial psychotic thought - more they dampen down my reaction to said thought.
