> I fear that a very close friend is experiencing the onset of psychosis...I've noticed distinct changes in the appearence of her this common?

Yes this is true. People with psychosis generally come acrossed as "flat" in the face, flat as in expression and emotion are devoid. They can develop a mechanical, robot type look. Also, inability to concentrate well like commonly occurs in psychosis may result in changes in the way the eyes appear. They are just "there" looking. Also, many psychosis are accompanied by depression to some degree or other and depression can change the way the face looks. Such as resulting in a tired, haggard, worn out look with dark rings under the eyes.

Combine it all and you have what psychosis "looks" like oftentimes, not pretty stuff.
