What's a bizarre thing you've done?

When I was psychotic for awhile I collected rain water, boiled it and used it for drinking water. :rofl: I thought the tap water and bottled drinks had harmful chemicals in them, so it was my only source of pure water.

Well when I wasn’t psychotic and just pissed off and had to use the bathroom real bad, I threatened a dunk n donuts employee that I would pee on their floor because he wouldn’t let me use the restroom🥲

I don’t know if he thought I was homeless cause it was like late at night and I had a bunch of bags with me or it just wasn’t allowed for customers to use the restroom? Idk

I suppose the most bizarre thing that I nearly did was to fly to another country to the hospital I was first diagnosed in and then demand to know “if there was a serpent-man in the ‘alone’ area”.

The ‘alone’ area I had defined as an area where you couldn’t be tortured.

All of this made complete sense to me.

I collected giant worms from a puddle in the pouring rain during a psychotic episode. I thought they were snakes that were drowning. I was escorted home to my family that had been desperately searching for me all night by apartment maintenance who found me. He was new and wasn’t sure which apartment to take me to. I just remember coming to my front door and my daughter grabbing the worms out of my hand and throwing them in the grass and being soaked to the bone and getting into a hot bath.

I could write a million bizarre things I did while I was psychotic. Here’s another one:
I went on a road trip with the destination being Mecca, on foot. I got many rides from compassionate drivers along the way. I just headed east. I guess I planned to hop a boat once I got to the coast. I got picked up by police after traveling through 4 states, more than halfway to the coast, and thrown into a hospital.

I think the bazaars thing I have ever experienced is not the spiritualist of things but rather of phobia I see white people this may sound strange to you but I firmly believe that they were turning people into mannequins unfortunately one of my friends was a mannequin dresser for JCPenney’s as a joke she made up one that look like her and it frightened the hell out of me

When I was a kid if I was at the beach I would pour sand all over my head and spend a long time pulling out all the little pieces, when I was psychotic I found an old vampire costume when I was collecting trash and the voices told me to wear it and I would be immortal, so I was walking around this city at night dressed as a cheap vampire pushing a shopping cart of trash, cape and all lol.

I managed to stop myself, but I almost called the police in the middle of the night to report intruders because I was convinced there were people living in my closets and moving between the walls and through the vents to watch me sleep. That would have been an interesting phone call.

After taking a seizure, I would usually be blacked out for 6 or 8 hours afterwards. I would be walking and talking, but nobody driving the bus.

The first time seizure they found me going the wrong way down the highway. I guess I swerved off the road to avoid hitting a truck, and crashed my truck into a stand of cedar trees.

Luckily, no one was hurt. There was a couple of thousand dollars worth of damage to my front end, but nothing major

I did a few bizarre things when I was psychotic. But I can’t think of them right now.

One that springs to mind is… Umm… I laid myself on the park ground at 6 am, and told the park joggers not to come nearby to me as I was due to explode and it is going to be dangerous!
