I would

I would resent some one who claimed they understood and had never experienced it, as it is not somthing that I think can ever be adiquately explained with accurate impact....

... I do think I envy those whos minds are solid and clear and not flowing and polluted as mine feels ...
.... even a little jelouse... but I would not wish mine on theres .. :innocent:

I don't resent people for being 'well' but I do resent people underestimating the effects a condition can have on you. Unfortunately I think there are too many people in society who think they have two mouths and one ear.

I've only experienced psychosis once when I was at a real end and suicidal, it was truly dreadful, if hell exists, it's that! Do I resent 'well people' for not really understanding but making out they do...no. I do not believe for one moment anyone is 'well', I prefer functional with up to mild mental health issues. My close friends asked me to describe it [when I had recovered] but I couldn't find words to match that deep level of psychosis, so I describe it as quite simply 'hell'...I don't talk of this often, but thought I'd share:redface:

I'm tempted to think of the film "Lakeview Terrace".
What exactly is normal or healthy?

No pain?
Alcohol & drugs have been proven to be wrong within limits (who's limits?).

I think we should stop psychoanalizing ourselves to death and simply enjoy the little things in life that give us pleasure...make us smile once in awhile.
What more can a body hope for?

I find it questions lots of things, the self, relationships, life and finally death its quite an odyssey in many senses. Yeah like the end too. I can't spell the word but the back guy love the way how he's like an angel...always puts him right.
