Default psychosis

During my first psychotic episode I was going to try and do something to my dog, thinking he was something evil and processed but my mum or dad walked in.
I harmed my face. Then I decided to drink vodka instead.
I walked six miles to the next town thinking I was a messiah.m
I Rollerblades through the supermarket thinking no one could see me and stole drink.m
I tied my boyfriend up to the bed will he was sleeping and was in the process of I can't say here on this site.m
I spent hours in the shower before his family broke down the door.
I wrote all over my walls a suicide note in red pen tried to kill myself then passed out.
The nurses in the ward thought they could contain me . little did they know I could wooped all their asses.

That sounds really scary.. How are you doing now? Do you know if something caused it, and how you can prevent it? It must be hard to deal with afterwards I would think, not sure how it is when it is happening. I haven't experienced anything like that.

It's the lack of insight that accompanies the psychotic break. I didn't believe anything was wrong with me. I was then talk of the town.I will be on medication for the rest of my life.I had humiliated myself and wanted to run away. I have things under control now. I think many people who end up in jail have probably experienced the same thing

I'm sure it can lead to things like that, yeah... I'm glad you're feeling a bit better at least and that the meds are working.

you're right Drizzle12, once you know and have insight and are taking your meds, then it's up to you pretty much to watch for signs of psychosis and try and prevent it from happening again.
like if I start seeing this certain hallucination, I know time for meds, time for sleep schedule.
just have to be vigilant( and not take medication vacations)

Glad you are doing better. Psychosis is such a scary thing, you cant help but believe what you are thinking is true. Hope everything from here on out will be ok.

Deep down I know if I let myself get Ill i could kill someone. If I had taken drugs I may well be a lost cause.
