I am troubled by my delusions and hallucinations.
As someone who has chronic mental health issues, I absolutely hate getting “stuck” with, in many cases, having to ”connect the dots.”
Imagine if you will, that you have affixed your attention, on a person (or persons), and you all of a sudden, begin to think that they don’t like you, or are out to get you, or that they have ill-intentions where you are concerned.
It is tough, and it happens a lot for me!
It comes from out of nowhere seemingly, and unfortunately, sticks around for hours sometimes.
As a result, I am often forced to get a “reality check” from someone close to me.
All I can say is, this is exhausting!
I do what I can to be “talked down,” but I absolutely hate thinking ill of people who haven’t committed any atrocities towards me.
Until science does one better, my meds are all I’ve got.
And, they are far from perfect!
What are some of your core symptoms? And, in what ways do you deal with them?
