I thought I could fake my way through life

I think my first psychosis happened when it became undeniably evident that I can’t fake it successfully. A rude awakening. I’m not special. Can’t live on favoritism.

My first psychosis coincided with an acute adjustment reaction to adult life as well. :wink:


i thought i could fake it through life… but life didn’t like it

I faked being normal for a long long time…but it only increased the distance that I fell…I was finding it harder to pretend and tried to self medicate with opiates to keep up the facade…I don’t think its very healthy to try and force normalcy…I might be better off if I had gotten help as a kid instead of trying to hide it all away…
