Default This Video Clicked with Me

My pdoc and I go back and forth about whether or not I have bipolar 1 or SZA. I have had some pretty intense periods of psychosis - sometimes at home, sometimes in public- intrusive thoughts, delusions, hallucinations, overwhelming feelings of "too much", etc. All of these things combine to make an experience not unlike what is shown in the 2nd and 3rd videos in this YouTube video

BEFORE YOU CLICK ON IT, let me just put up a big TRIGGER WARNING!

At least, it was triggering to me. I've had episodes a lot like what are shown here. The paranoia, the intrusive thoughts, the hallucinations, command voices, feeling overwhelmed by my environment...

After seeing this, I'm pretty sure I have schizoaffective Disorder. I still have depression and mania, to be sure. But this video clicked with me.

Just watched the YouTube video, did not think much of it, like student filmmakers trying to produce horror films.

If you really want to know what it's like try this definition, cherry bomb, Shane Gibbs youtube channel, having a disembodied Twitter storm broadcasted to your left ear.

This for me is a general description, there are no hands coming out of boxes or Barry White voices.

I've heard voices in one ear, sort of whispering, telling me random things.
