About 2 weeks ago I've been diagnosed with drug-induced psychosis. There are alot of things that worry me currently.
Im taking 10mg of olanzapine a day and im waiting for it to work.

Im scared and 100% sure that the government is after me. Im convinced that there are cameras all over the house and that there is a drone over my house. It's really stressfull. I've been thinking of admitting myself to a psychiatric hospital so that they can help me but im not quite sure if want to do that. Im also sure the government is soon going to kill me. Im trying to stay away from windows not to get shot.

Im sure the government is after me because about 1 week ago for a few hours I became god. I felt extremely powerful and was full of joy knowing that I was god. I guess thats the reason the government is after me. They've been doing experiments on me for many months, where I had delusional like experiences for a few hours every now and then. Not sure why they did those experiments I guess to stop me from becoming god. Now im aware of what they're doing, like I finally opened my eyes.

Am I paranoid? It's hard to tell whats real anymore so I can only make an educated guess.. Maybe I should go to a psychiatric hospital. Any advice here?

Didn’t you start some meds? Are you taking them constantly?

It does sound like psychosis. Can you talk to you mh team about this. It’s not an unusual thought. I was convinced my pdoc was working for the government and she was medicating me to shut me up.

Yep 10mg of olanzapine every single day. I read somewhere that it can take a few weeks for the meds to work.

Yes it can, for example my son seems to dropped the delusions about the government, CIA tracking him after 16 weeks.. suddenly he realised that he is not the genius he imagined he is and he should start working to be admitted at a university and build a life of his own. Challenge your thoughts, remember reasoning.

Sound very similar to my story, it should fade off eventually if you don't do drugs. I was stupid and did loads and it made me worse. I believed i was god and felt powerful too, i remember destroying my SIM card thinking what you are thinking. Please message me so we can share stories you remind me of myself 2 years ago
