I'm fucking pissed

I told people that I have psychosis. They immediately after said they do too.

Ugh. Last night there was a kid who claimed to have “multiple personalities”. When did psychosis become trendy?

Perhaps they didn’t understand you - many people use “psychosis” to mean really frustrated our temporarily out of their mind do to stress or anger, etc.

I know how you feel. When I tell people I have certain problems they will end up acting like they do too. Like one person I shared some things with and then suddenly everything I told him had apparently happened to him not even a couple of weeks later following a breakup.

Is there a possibility that some of these people do have psychosis, DID or other problems? Maybe it’s not so much trendy as more people are speaking up or out about what they are going through. Just because someone doesn’t look like they have problems it doesn’t mean that they don’t. Just a thought…

I’m having a similar situation. Anytime I mention something about one of my symptoms (because I think it is healthy to be able to communicate these things) this one guy says “I aint never met anybody crazier than me” and other things along those lines. People just don’t want to hear about it, I’ve come to find out. I think I will be keeping this ■■■■ to myself from now on.

His description of the “personalities” was right out of fantasy, not at all what actually happens with DID. Also he’s known to make ■■■■ up and clamor for attention, so even if his description matched the clinical symptoms, I would have a hard time believing him.

What I hate the most is when people I used to go to school with find out I have schizophrenia. They say “But in school you were so smart”. I just politely say " I still am, schizophrenia and stupidity are completely unrelated." There is always a positive response.

No. This boy has things wrong with his brain, but not one of them is psychosis. Only when I said I was seeing France (A character off Hetalia, one of my fave anime which I often see characters of anime in addition to my main voices) did he say he was getting visions of other hetlaia characters, and only after I told him I am a vampire did he say he was a mage. Mages don’t exist. There are witches, but they do real magic, not the stuff he ahs been doing He only twirls his fingers and says the gibberish people do on TV. He does not have psychosis at all. My little sister’s and my friend that we call Alfie, I can believe as her brother is a drug addict and she is exposed to that kind of thing, but the boy I told today, some kind of mental handicap, but definitely not [psychosis. When I was in the state hospital, there was a girl exactly like that. Whenever my schizophrenic friend Piffer and I talked about our voices and hallucinations, this girl who overheard and showed NO signs whatsoever said she heard them too. It’s a thing people with other problems do to gain some kind of satisfaction or to “Fit in” with those they admire for having these kidns of problems. I am sure he only has some kind of Autism, as well as diabetes. But he never acted the way he did around me until I told him about my symptoms and what I am. That was why I am so angry with him. But what I don’t understand is why someone would WANT to be like us. It’s a living hell, despite how kind most of those of us with this are. I just don’t know how to deal with his type. They act like toddlers and abuse people’s trust. he nearly told my sister I am a vampire, and I told him not to say a word of it to my sister. He has a habit of blabbing to people and copying other people. I have had too many friends like him, and I forced all of them out of my life. But he follows me everywhere, no matter what. At lunch, at breakfast, he never leaves me alone when I just want some space for myself. I was hallucinating badly today and then immediately after, this boy said, “Oh, I see him too.” I wanted to scream at him, and would have were we not in a library. When I’m seeing blood leaking down the walls, you don’t mess with me. But the SECOND after I told him I was seeing things, he said, “I see them too.” he doesn’t come from a background i do. He doesn’t want to kill his classmates, he doesn’t see blood running down the walls Whenever I say something, he immediately says the same thing. Like when we were listening to a song by Phineas and Ferb, a show I absolutely HATE, and I told my friend I hated that show, he said too quickly “I hate it too.” But he sang along with the freaking song with hsi whole heart like he does when he likes a song r show! He copies my issues and he ninjas my mind and thinks I will be okay with it. I want to tell him to leave me the ■■■■ alone, but I am afraid of the people that will retaliate. He hangs with most of the school and all his friends will do anything to protect him, even if it means hurting the ones who hurt him mentally physically. I don’t treat ANYONE with any kind of issue special, and I don’t see why people treat them that way. If I told them I was psychotic, they say, “It’s not bad,” or “You’re just possessed.” and so I don’t treat any person as though they have any kind of handicap. Not even those with Severe Autism or other things that make them wind up in the special ed department. I know this sounds mean, but they should be treated as though they are their age, and not infants, because how will any of them learn how to survive out in the REAL world? I sure as hell never was helped by my family or friends just because I have mental illness. If people have issues, they need to deal with them, and not throw fits like most of those people do when people don’t treat them like royalty. I’m sorry, I am ranting, but I have been holding my feelings back for WAAAAY too long now, and need to get it off my chest.

never underestimate the stupidity of people in large groups.

@dandydinmot Thank you. But I just don’t get why people would want to be like us. I mean, yeah, We’re trying to recover, but it is still a living hell. This guy in particular, he mimics everything I do, and it is getting under my skin. I am going to be direct if he doesn’t stop, which will not be pretty.

just tell them a detailed episode and watch there face go from :blush: to :open_mouth: to :scream: lol

Sounds like he has a crush on you :confused:

I always want to like these quotes unlimited times.

He’s younger than me though O_O

Especially if he has autism, if he’s copying everything you do, he most likely has a crush on you. ACCEPT IT @_@

(People unconsciously mimic those they like anyways. An autistic person would be less subtle about this behavior.)

maybe they just want to make you feel like you are not on your own with this, when people say that they have what you have maybe they are really saying something else like your not alone or i am here for you or something, sometimes what people say and what they actually mean are two totally different things.

@Anna I don’t know what he has. I have autism myself but I am subtle about showing I like someone. Besides, I don’t like him that way. And plus I already have a boyfriend, he knows this.

@mrhappy and he is mentally healthy, save for this problem I can’t put my finger on. And he didn’t even know until the end of the school day.

Huh. Well it’s just a thought anyhow. Sorry you have to deal with his obnoxiousness :<
