Default I escaped from insanity

I recently escaped from severe insanity (undiagnosed mental illness with psychosis) but no one really seems to care. Some people think that doens't happen and I am suffering some kind of "psychotic delusions of sanity". My psychiatrist wasn't the least bit interested in what happened and just wanted to put me on a different antipsychotic. When I tell other people how I did it they just kind of look at me like "that's weird." Honestly, with the amount of psychosis and mental illness in our society I thought people would be excited for me and interested in how I got out. I'm writing a book "How to Escape Insanity" about my experience but I honestly don't know if anyone will care. Thoughts?

Chris

I have been a little reluctant to add anything to this thread because I know that there are different degrees of psychosis and one size does not fit all. I was never really plagued with constant audio hallucinations, but I still went thru a half dozen major psychotic episodes when I was in my 20's accompanied with delusions and other weird *****.


I got more better when I was 30/31 and was OK for the next 20 years. Then around a month after the 9/11 thing I went thru another mild episode. Because I recognized some of the same signs and symptoms I was able to get thru the ruff part in about 3 weeks without any head meds. Actually, it has probably been over 35 years since I last had to take any anti-psychotics, but there were definite times when I needed to take them in the past.


I don't mean to be tooting my own horn, but I think reading and self analysis in between episodes and later on, really help me understand what I went thru and why. Luck in being able to establish a meaningful romantic relationship when I was 30/31 also I had a lot to do with my recovery I believe.
