Not sure. Maybe not. It is for me though.

Spiritual, government, aliens, and my own fault. It was my fault for smoking marijuana 8 years ago. I blacked out. Don’t know what really happened. I have false memories of the incident and I remember thousands/millions of past lives/parallel universes so I can’t tell what really happened/what is real. Stuff that happened long time ago is irrelevant. I came back from a parallel universe around 2011.

I bet this is the best explanation thus far.

The brain is the most complex organ in our bodies, and it makes sense that we’re still at the Galileo stages of our understanding of it. Mental illness has only been studied seriously as a medical issue for a handful of decades; there is a ton left for doctors and researchers to learn. We don’t even know for certain that the problems originate in our brains, rather than elsewhere in our central nervous system, or even another system entirely.

–From Rhubot’s “What It’s Like to Know You’ll Be on Antidepressants for Life”.

Interestingly, the gut can also be our second brain.

A 2015 study, for instance, suggested that an interplay between the gut and the brain might be “the missing link” in our understanding of depression.

I think my psychosis came from mispronouncing the z sound.

My problems started very small before I asked for a spirit guide.

Mine wasn’t spiritual. It’s a messed up brain trying to make logical sense out of the discrepancy between my world and my emotions.

I see it as a chemical disorder from genetic weakness and stress. My religion has nothing to do with it - I hope! I had enough trauma from my mom taking me to a well meaning pastor who tried to exorcise me. And it made me worse.

What do you mean by “spiritual?” This is not a term that is often used by mental health or medical practitioners when discussing the various causes of mental disorders. Usually we speak of “biopsychosocial” causes. But, to explain mental disorders we (or they) consider all aspects of a person, including one’s religious or spiritual beliefs. Certainly, what one believes affects one’s mental health.

There’s nothing spiritual about schizophrenia.

Try opening your mind…there’s a lot we don’t know, that scientists and doctors don’t know.

All I can say is, madness is madness.

Spiritual is spiritual.

Madness could not be spiritual.

Spirituality could be seen as madness, though. And only a spiritual person would know for certain?

Could madness have a ‘spiritual’ cause? Maybe?

No. I don’t know if I said that right.

Mine hasn’t been remotely spiritual. My psychosis is all about the existence of the paranormal and supernatural (think horror movie monsters, poltergeists, etc.). I’ve never involved anything spiritual in it. I never believed I was a godphone (someone who speaks to/for the gods) or anything, for example.

Mine has been spiritual, paranormal, and supernatural, all wrapped into one. To me, the terminology is the same or similar.

Very awesome perspective

You’re preaching to the choir. I know science doesn’t know everything but guess what, it’s working on it. There is a desirable balance between exploring novel ideas with an open mind and maintaining a healthy skepticism. The following humorous cautionary statement exemplifies the tension: “Do not be so open-minded that your brains fall out.”
