Hi all. So, here it goes… Do you believe in a god? Are you religious? Do your meds affect this? Or have anything to do with your belief???
How is this relevant, you may ask. Let me start from the beginning then… Since starting the new meds I’m on, I’ve been feeling increasingly rational. I’m not paranoid as I used to be. I don’t see plots and conspiracies all around me. I no longer have delusions. I feel happier, more serene, my feet on the ground and overall I’m doing much much better than I did before.
There is one thing tough. Well, I used to believe, to some extent. I thought that god could punish me or reward me for my actions.
But this is no longer the case. I would say I am an atheist now. Antipsychotics have made me an atheist.
Following this thought, was my all seeing god just one of my delusions?
Would all religious people stop believing if they were to take antipsychotics?
