> Hey Deneb,

> Psychosis is a break with reality. Do you still feel like you're in reality when it happens?

Yes, I still feel like I'm in reality. Sometimes I feel like reality is strange, but I think that is more derealization than psychosis. I suppose it is not real psychosis then because I am still able to think that what I was thinking made no sense to other people.

> I guess what you're describing is being paranoid, at least that's what it sounds like.

I don't know what I experience...it is more like my emotions go haywire and I can't think straight anymore.

> Have you told your p-doc what you experience, in the words you used above?

Yes I've told her, but I'm not very good at describing things IRL. She didn't think it was a problem.

> Why don't you ask your p-doc about meds. I wouldn't take them if you don't need them, but if you think you do, then you might ask her about it. Sure can't hurt to have a discussion about meds.

Already have, meds not needed, except for an SSRI to maybe help. I think she thinks that I'm avoiding my real problems when I start asking about meds.

> Are you looking for a new one?

No, there are not enough family doctors to go around here and I have to stick with her. I'm just going to avoid her though.

Thanks, I think I'm going to need it.
