Hi Jadus, I mostly experience psychotic delusions when I am manic. I will think that all of my friends are celebrities, that all of my friends are rich and famous or that houseplants, shampoo bottles and other everyday household objects represent people i know and I have to treat them accordingly. So the forms our psychosis takes are different. Me I don’t really have any friends. I live with my parents who are both very supportive of me. I am able to cope with the assistance of their strong support. xo, j

Yeah it is definitely bizarre having these experiences. Do you recognize them as delusions when you are having them or only later? I am 44 living with my parents and have lived here with them for about five years. j

Hi Jadus. I'm interested in how you personally feel the three diagnoses listed there effect you. Can you pinpoint which parts of your illness belong to which diagnosis or do they seem to all bleed into one form for you?

Also, did you get diagnosed with them all at the same time or in stages over time?

Welcome!

I only recognise them as delusions after I go through it. Its nice to talk to someone :) haven't got anyone really and moving back home hasn't helped

Me too, then once I come too it feels very surreal and bizarre. It’s a little scary to tell the truth. Yeah I find coming here to be a big relief with things. People understand here and accept you for how you are. xo, j

Yeah I found it really bizarre to and then when I try to explain things to people they find it really weird like tonight I feel like I'm being pushed away my mom suffers with depression and stuff and sometimes doesn't like to be touched or even just a hug I just wanted or some kind of affection instead I got sly remarks and sort of sarcastic remarks or stuff that made me feel bad and my stepdad doesn't understand never really has understood the mental health makes me feel 10 centimetres tall sometimes

That sucks that your family is not more supportive or understanding. I’m glad you found this place where people care and truly understand.

It's not a nice feeling specially when you have got a lot going on in your head and you start to think what's the point maybe it would be better if I wasn't here no one would seem to miss me as no one bothers with me now

I’m sure people would miss you a lot if you were gone sometimes people just take other people for granted. Especially in families I think that’s true. xo
