i suffer from depression....therapist wanted to medicate me but i refuse...i know why i am depressed and exactly what it will take to get me through this
one of my friends from childhood suffers from some type of psychosis. It is the hardest thing to watch and/or experience.
for a while there it was dangerous to even be around her. But now she understands how important it is to stay on her meds continually.
but growing up we just thought she was "sensitive" it wasnt until she was an adult that it was realized something was really wrong.
for her it starts off looking like she cant handle any type of "pressure" She would fall apart and be crying endlessly due to what looked like small stressors.what types of behavior is indicative of psychosis?
wow...i have never met someone with those types of symptoms...i think my ex has a form of psychosisfor her it starts off looking like she cant handle any type of "pressure" She would fall apart and be crying endlessly due to what looked like small stressors.
then it would look like paranoia - at least for us it did. She would she see things like blood running out of the water taps. That ppl were doing things against her - hers were religious in tone - and she would think she would need to kill or hurt someone before they hurt her. That kind of thing.
I had her stay with me for a few weeks and she was lying and not taking her meds. I had to call her family and say, no I cant do this.
She would wake me up and repeat her fears over and over that her mum/aunt/father/friend was going to kill her some how. But she would be really maniac and happy one moment and then low the next.
To me as a layperson I thought it was a type of bi-polar disorder or schziophrenia but the doctors say its not. It is kind of confusing for me.
I don't lie.well i tink plenty people out here are as crazy as a shit house rat... i remember this one dude i know.. man i am convinced that he is insane.. cos he would lie about the randomest shit.. like one day i suprised him at work.. oh yea i was suprised.. to find out he didnt work there anymore.. he said that he did and that the manager was lying on him.. i went back.. they told me he hadnt workrd there for the month.. i say okay.. another time he texted me some crazy messages that pissed me off, i confronted him the next day he claimed it was his roommates who took his phone.. like i started to think.. hmm you always have an excuse.. one day he was tryin to tell me online he had no phone i was like niccccccca i saw you post on fb from an IPHONE! stfu! and let him go.. he was too much of a liar.. too much.. and he had like virtually no affect, i felt like he was a sociopath cos he seemed to have no emotion unless it was to get himself out of some trouble..
