I've used quite an obtuse title to the thread so as to avoid limiting what can be discussed herein. I think primarily we will consider that anything people recount from their personal experience appeared at the time as real. To try and dispute whether or not it was or is objectively true misses the point somewhat. If a person percieves something as a reality, then his mind processes it as such. No matter how much third parties, families, friends, doctors, may try to convince you of their subjective reality, which they percieve is a shared objective reality, as a person living through the experience it does not appear as assistance. In fact the shared subjective reality (posing as objective truth) of 'norms' can appear as conspiracy. This may actual end up magnifying fear and paranoia, in the end doing the exact opposite of stated intentions, whether that be familial concern, or supposéd health professional care.
