When you were actively psychotic did you feel dead inside?

Could you not feel any good feelings or feel like you care about anything?

I actually am dead so yeah I guess so

I actually feel great when I’m partially psychotic (when my injection runs out)

But the come downs are brutal.

The injection balances it out.

I have more emotions off meds but they’re often bad like fear and anger. Since I got sz I am never the same as before sz, on or off meds.

i didn’t feel dead when psychotic…

How did you feel, if I may ask?

i felt scared and confused… being hunted the whole time and everybody was in on it. Didn’t have a second rest really.

but yea it was hard to feel good feelings for sure. Everything was kinda negative… i wanted to die.

Did you feel better once you started meds?

i feel a lot better… but it took a long time to find the right meds. I was in that situation for so long… but now i’m a lot more at peace.


When I became psychotic in 2016 I was super paranoid and delusional.
I thought that certain family members were going to kill me.

I felt that my father was drugging me and my dog at the time.

I felt that the mafia was after me.

I felt like my father was torturing me every day.

I was involuntarily hospitalized twice for over a month.

God, never again!

May I ask how long it took you to get better?

It took about one year to get better fully.

When my psychosis gets bad, I dissociate and go emotionally numb.


Was 2016 the first time or only time you became psychotic?

Did you start to feel any relief from your symptoms once you started your meds?

No but it was the worse psychotic episode I experienced.

I was hospitalized during the 90s and was psychotic for decades. @anon66864989


No, but at the time, I sure wished that I was dead.
