Default No psychotic disorder (Where should I post?)

Voices insulting me, voices threatening me, things inserting thoughts inside my head, inserting images inside my head, looking inside my head because my skull is transparent, screaming inside my head... Which freak me out, but somehow I am managing them well enough to keep going with my life. Partially it is thanks to the two meds I take (Prazosin and a tricyclic AD), though my diarly life still is almost a nightmare (anguish and happiness put together)

Meh.

These voices are not my people, their description sound psychotic, but it seems I don't completely lose contact with the real world (just partially and doubt a lot).

Ohhhmmm...It seems I have some kind of dissociative psychosis or psychotic dissociation, it resemble to psychosis but there is not a total break from reality, and at the same time, it doesn't fit the description of alters (at least these type I call "voices", because they are just voices, not people. I have people too, and I know they are dissociative folk, but the voices? I don't consider them part of "me/us").


So I don't have any diagnosis anymore.

-No psychotic disorder
-No personality disorder (I asked my doctor)
-No ASD (I already now it)
-Yes to ****ed up human being who hallucinates and dissociates (Which is??? I don't seem to fit any current criteria, 100% sane)

"It is better to think about symptoms and not diagnosis"--->What my dear doctor said.



I am glad I am now sane AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHA

Do I keep posting here? Do I move to another subforum? Do I ask the Admin to creat a subforum called "Crazily sane"?

oh man i'm sorry, i've been given the same spiel too. my psych's explanation of it was kind of understandable though -- she just didn't want a psychotic disorder diagnosis on my record, worried about the ramifications i might face from it. no idea what your doc's reasons were but just something to consider. keep posting wherever you like. just because it's not on paper doesn't mean it isn't real.

Sounds like youíre a voice hearer which can be normal but in a low percent of people....do you not get delusions? I feel you should post where you feel most comfortable about each topic....if itís more like a psychotic voice post here if itís more like DID post there you know.

Maybe quasi delusions? I have felt forced to believe them but usually I ended up both confronting them and questioning them. Anyway, in the past the voices have been distressing (and confusing) enough to make me act crazy.

My doctor is very strict when it comes to diagnosis and involuntary IP. He won't consider psychotic someone who doesn't have a total break from reality.

If you talked to me when I couldn't manage it, I was incoherent but I was able to be partially critic about my experience (I realized other people couldn't see/hear/feel what I did). It was enough to consider it a partial break from reality.

Post wherever you like. Not everyone who posts here has a psychotic disorder. If you find it helpful to post here, post away.

I just feel good being able to read and see what we all go through. It's definitely therapeutic. To be able to vent about our conditions without feeling weird. I'm glad I found this place.

I've heard voices in my head but not out loud from a creature that isn't human or animal. It told me to hurt myself and that I was a bad person. I believed it and even saw it and felt it was a real presence. I also knew that I was probably hallucinating. This was still a mini psychosis but I wasn't completely in the psychosis, I knew who I was and where I was and stuff. I didn't lose touch with reality completely. It's possible you have psychotic symptoms without being fully psychotic.
