So not that the internet is a diagnostic tool or anything but you know since I don’t have therapy I just sort of roll with the internet.
But I’ve started doing a ton of research ever since idlnmclean mentioned dissociative disorders in regards to the voices I hear and the fact that I used to refer to myself as “we”.
And the more I’m learning the more I’m starting to realize it’s highly likely that I don’t suffer from psychosis but instead from dissociation. I’ve heard of it before of course but never really jumped at it because I’ve never had a chance to look over all my symptoms when I’m clear headed (thanks, prozac) and holy shit it’s kinda weird how much I fit into a DIDNOS profile.
Again the internet is not a diagnostic tool but umm just took this test and I’m in range so yeeeah.
I won’t go around saying “I am didnos” or some shit cuz it really isn’t an identity for me I just like to know more about myself and so know that I don’t fucking hallucinate demons is a really cool, reassuring thought, even if the alternative are those demons are actually parts of me that I had difficulty incorporating with my own self.
tl;dr: I might have a dissociative disorder and not psychosis
