when I was delusional all movies and all love songs were about me…it used to bother me when I heard them, but now, I embrace them…reminds me that I am stable. That means the world to me and I will never stop taking my meds for schizophrenia because I know I could lose everything…any songs take you back to when you were ill?
I am still ill. And me too, i take some songs only for myself now, its almost as a therapy lol Some people make art with love, so i take it heh
For the mental distance from it, i’ll still have to wait. Yeah, if i recover , one day i’ll here some of ‘‘my’’ songs differently i guess .
When I was very psychotic and in a mixed mood episode, this song was speaking to me. It described my feelings and experience perfectly.
In the song, he struggles with voices. And he sings about how he just wants to make it through the night, without committing suicide. He sounds desperate to just make it until morning. I felt that way, too.
No, none stand out. It’s funny because I googled hits of 1981 and I recognized almost all the songs but I don’t really associate any of them with my illness. But when I got out of the hospital In 1982 and I got stable I can remember Billie Jean, A Land Downunder. I was in a vocational program 4 days a week and we played the radio constantly. I remember Like A Virgin, Jenny, The Police, Hall & Oates Maneater.
I’m always hearing something in a song that takes me back. That’s why some songs are so popular. They say something about our lives, something we relate to. One of my favorite lines is, “I could cry for the time I wasted / But that would be a waste of time and tears.” It’s in the song “There is nothing I can do about it now” by Willie Nelson.
That is an awesome track. You have got a good taste in music.
What you experienced (that every song was about you) is called “delusion of reference.”
Under my last psychosis i had it exactly the same way.
thank you everyone…means so much to reach people here…
