I recently escaped from extreme insanity (undiagnosed mental illness with psychosis) and no one seems to care or believe me. My psychiatrist just recommended another antipsychotic. Some people have made it clear to me that people do not recover from this type of thing and that I must have "psychotic delusions of sanity" or something along those lines. When I tell people how I 'escaped' they just look at me in silence - probably thinking "that's weird" I assume. I am writing a book about my experiences "How to Escape Insanity" but I'm not sure that anyone will care. With the amount of people struggling with this type of thing I thought people would be interested. It seems if you are not a psychiatrist or psychologist no one cares what you think - even if you are the one that 'did it'. Thoughts?

Yes, I am quite certain this is not a money-maker for me:) I am just sharing my story online in a "How to Escape Insanity" blog type thing (easily googled). I would love feedback on what I am writing.

Hugs. I told the doctor I was normal but I had a relapse from ten years ago on my record

I had been struggling with some ‘low-level’ insanity my entire adult life. Then I became extremely insane for five years. But I escaped. And I’m pretty sure I know how I did it - through building friendships, healing from trauma, making my brain a happy place, and then finally escaping. (This is how my blog starts, which is easily searched online as How to Escape Insanity)

I really like your blog site. You know what you’re doing, and have obviously put in a lot of careful effort! Congratulations.
