    A Realization I Had About Losing Touch With Reality

    Recently I've been going through some big relapses in my mental health. I have been engaging in old unproductive behaviors and been losing touch with reality (I constantly feel like I'm in a dream). I had gone off meds completely about a year and a half ago. I made some huge changed in my...

    Have I had undiagnosed psychosis for years?

    This lasted about 7 years, thereabouts, so I will be summarising the events as much as much as possible. And these will be in a random order as I have no idea where one started and the other ended. I look back on it now and it feels like a dream, like it wasn’t real. It’s crazy. Year 7 (age...

    Psychotic depression and sports

    Hello, I am new on the forum. I have a question - does anyone have the following experience with antipsychotics: 1.)

    Social anxiety ruining my life

    I'm sure people post about this a lot but social anxiety has ruined my teenage years and now is ruining my adult life as well. I can't function like a normal person and it kills me. Something as simple as having a conversation with a stranger is nearly impossible for me at times. I can barely...
