I was diagnosed in 2017. I had a strange form of psychosis. I had mainly delusions and some abnormal thinking. The abnormal thinking did a number on me and I still struggle with some of the residuals even now when I’m well into recovery.
Because of my struggle with intrusive/abnormal thoughts I’ve become a lot more nicer to myself and others that have mental illness.
Before my diagnosis I was a savage, I was strong and resilient and most importantly people liked me.
Now I have no friends, don’t go out, don’t date, and this has all been totally acceptable because of the pandemic but I was like that even before covid tbh. Now I’m trying to start new relationships but I can’t help but wonder if people will like me and want to continue the friendship? My cousin and my best friend said I’m so different than how I used to be.
