I’ve gotten into the habit of thinking about why I am in recovery. I recently realized that I’ve come to realize the only reason I’m in recovery is that I’ve been caught up in a dark place. I have many times in my life felt like a prisoner in a dark place. I have gone to a place where I felt that I was trapped and that there was no way out. I had to take a step back and realize that I’ve always been in that place.
Psychosis has to be one of the most difficult things to deal with. The reality of this mental disorder is not something you can see and talk about with others. People with this disorder either have a very extreme and violent reaction to something (usually a traumatic event) or they can’t feel anything at all. When you feel something, you feel it in your body. When you don’t, you don’t.
It’s an interesting concept because even though you may feel as strong and violent as you’re capable of, you don’t actually experience the experience that way.
If I was in a mood I would go to a library with me and read the book “Families of Famine”. I would think about what they might say, “I had a little panic attack. I was down and out. I was scared. I was scared. I was scared. I felt the fear in my body. I felt my neck. I felt my arm. I felt my neck. I felt it. I felt it. I felt it.
Some people feel that the experience of psychosis is so intense that they have to go to a hospital. I think that maybe the experience of psychosis is just too much for a person to handle. This is why many people go into recovery programs, and why a lot of people end up dead.
Psychosis comes from a lack of balance or a lack of a sense of self-awareness. So those people who have been through the experience of psychosis may be more likely to be prone to anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and other forms of anxiety. Those are the symptoms of psychosis. The actual cause of psychosis is something that is much more subtle. The actual cause of psychosis is a breakdown in the brain’s ability to process emotions.
A psychotic can be caused by the inability to comprehend and deal with emotions. That can include things like the inability to trust relationships or the inability to distinguish between good and bad. Some people can be triggered by the thought of death. This is true of people who have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, and it is true of people who have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. A psychotic person can also be triggered by things like a blow to the head, a break from medication, or a drug overdose.
Psychosis is a pretty common condition, so it’s not like we were trying to diagnose you or anything. I have two clients who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia and have been on medication for a while. As a result, they’ve been on medication for about three years now. All of them have done well on the medication, and none of them have lost their work or family members to the disease.
Well, if they haven’t, I can’t imagine how their families are coping. As the illness progresses, the symptoms can get worse and more frightening, because the psychotic breaks lose their ability to explain themselves. As a result, people with schizophrenia often lose touch with reality and feel like they’re having to do whatever they can to keep their sanity.
While I don’t think it is appropriate to call anyone a psychopath, the fact that someone is psychotic enough to kill and maim people seems to be more of a symptom of the illness than a cause. People with schizophrenia often act out of fear, but their actions can be just as rational as someone who is completely unable to think or rationalize.
