What is psychosis? Psychosis is a break from reality, delusional thinking, a bit like Alice in Wonderland where mad things seem possible or in film Vanilla Sky when he cant wake up from his bad dream. It is TERRIFYING. IT SEEMS REAL. ANYONE WHO DOUBTS ME DIDNT SEE ME SCREAMING AND HYSTERICAL, HIIDING IN MY BED last Sunday and Monday because of that girl who wouldn’t stop contacting me. It is brought on by extreme stress as perceived by me. Even if to you it doesn’t seem much, you must understand to me, I was terrified. Because my brain hasn’t ever learned to find safety. BPD is likened to a form of PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
It is my reality and trying to tell me its not that stressful will make me 100 x worse. I am still scared otherwise I wouldn’t be having nightmares. When it continues, I eventually have complete breakdown from lack of sleep.
