the audio/visual hallucinations i can deal with. Got tricks to help with those. Its the damn paranoia and delusions that mess me up though.
One of the delusions actually came true years back and its like my brain feeds on knowing that where if at any point it is aware to me im delusional, the more rational side of myself now questions if all other delusions are very much real or will be real. I cant get out of it one way or another.
The meds help though, i can kind of ignore it well to a extent anyway. At times i still get lost in them. I need to constantly distract myself from other things at all times.
Times i have gone off meds, it doesnt take long for me to be forcibly hospitalized

It varies to kinda mild oddness, to full blown rapture. Fortunately, I’m usually unaware of all the goings on. Until in recovery, it starts to seep in.

For my wife it is really bad. The episodes are going on for last 11 years and no sign of improvement or recovery. Every year she picks up 4th of July as the date and says everything become normal again on that day. The day comes and goes and it gets reset by another year. Me and my son keeps asking her what is that would make things go back to normal and she refuses to give the answer. She says if she tells us the person who is controlling would know and ruin it. Looks like this year will be the same. Doctors have no clue on how to deal with it. They say you guys have to live with it and it will be there for her entire life. It really sucks when we hear that.

The paranoia sucks in retrospect and led me to act in unfortunate ways but fortunately with time and medication it hasn't come back *yet*. Luckily I have not had voices like others seem to have so that is a huge blessing.

Absolutely awful. I feel like the whole world knows everything about me and can even tune into my thoughts at any time. It's like being tortured.
