Poll: Do you feel more "off" when you aren't delusional?

Thanks for the response! Follow-up question: for me, I shift between delusional and undelusional depending on how I’m wired to perceive the world, sort of.

yeah… kind of sucks actually… I’m not used to a normal life experience at all… just makes me ponder about the psychosis when it sets in and which eventually brings belief in my symptoms back… strange bs…

When I am delusional, I feel sound socially but chaotic mentally.

When I am not delusional, I am awkward and feel outcast socially but sound mentally.
