I’ve been thinking about bringing up this subject for some time, and now it’s coming to fruition.
There are many people with a schizophrenia diagnosis who are stuck in a world of delusion/hallucination.
And, what I mean by that, is that they, through no fault of their own, experience an alternate reality—one that is different from the rest of us.
This has much to do with their not consistently taking an antipsychotic drug.
Antipsychotics help to keep one from going through this alternate reality I speak of.
If I were able to wave a magic wand and do so in a loving and helpful fashion, I would do so in the direction of those who both need a schizophrenia diagnosis and antipsychotic medication.
For whatever reason, my delusions/hallucinations do not exacerbate my reality, as much as many other people going through schizophrenia.
Thus, it is not all that unusual to be knee deep in this stuff, and not realize you’re hallucinating or experiencing a delusion.
Again, it is my sincere hope that someone, somewhere is able to get help to individuals who may need to be on some appropriate medication, for their symptoms.
It isn’t fun being in an alternate reality, and chances are pretty good people experiencing these types of symptoms, aren’t even aware of them… until they have an all-out psychotic break.
And even then, there is a strong lack of awareness aka a lot of denial going on.
