Experiencing a psychotic
episode does not mean that you are a "psycho" (that's just a load of Hollywood
garbage). The best way to describe psychosis is that it's like losing contact
with reality. Your mind plays tricks on you and causes you to experience unusual
thoughts, feelings and behaviors. When someone is experiencing psychosis they
- Delusions (unusual
(your senses experience things that aren't really real).
- Paranoia (believing
that everything is directed at you).
- Unusual and
disorganised thoughts and behaviour.
- Flat emotions.
- Bizarre reactions
to everyday situations.
- Things they
say don't always make sense to others.
