Slightly Psychotic

This morning I had a most vivd dream, as I was thinking about it I heard the doorbell ring - or did I? Was that in my head.
I looked out the window and there was no-one at the door.
An auditory halucination.

I lay in bed a long time as I knew I was slightly psychotic.
I had ideas of doing strange things, of shaving my head and of being special.
I slept some more.

I am lucky I have the wisdom to stay in bed when these things happen.

What I don't get is how close two states can be.

My head has been buzzing with thoughts about psychosis and spirituality and stuff - I desperately wanted to talk to someone and the people from MIND were due to be at the sports centre - so I popped over
But there was no-one there.

Then, from feeling calm and happy I was turned into a twitching, grimacing, weirdo - considering self-harm and other unspeakable acts.
Wanting to lock myself away and ....
I don't know

Then read a bit and get back to normal
Then enjoy a tasy sandwich before getting twitchy again when I recall being let down (again).

Went for a run this morning - mostly nude.
Was I psychotic? Or just being daring
Although this could be described as normal behaviour for me.

I get confused sometimes.

You have a good thing going with the amount of insight you have. When I am psychotic I dont really realise until I have done something really stupid like being convinced the wife is trying to poison me. I know you don't like taking meds but they really will help you through the difficult times.

I know it's like a switch just flicks sometimes. The changability of things has become easier and easier for me as time has gone on, with mindfulness practice. D x

I shouldn't be on the computer, I should be in bed.
Probably a sign that I am not altogether.

Need to get a good night's sleep tonight, really.
