A while ago, I was diagnosed with a light psychosis. I took some meds and it went away. Last night, I was trying to get to sleep, and I suddenly heard this girl's voice incredibly clearly in my mind, even though the place was deserted, and the street was empty. This morning, I woke up very early(5.30 a.m.) wide awake and felt odd (violent feelings towards others, lethargy, etc.). Should I tell my parents about this, or should I wait a few days and see if it was just a one time thing? I'm worried I'll anger them if I tell them or they'll think I'm being a drama queen.

With any mental illness, it must be considered seriously. I'm assuming that your parents already know, as you have been placed on meds beforehand. If you want to, you can keep them updated on your psychosis and your mental health. This could have been a fluke event, or it could be a sign that maybe you need a switch up of meds :/

Yeah, I just don't know if they'll get pissed off cuz they assume I'm making a mountain out of a molehill or something, that's all. Still, I guess it would be safer to talk to them about it.

yeah I'd say tell em... better be safe than sorry, right? Don't worry about them seeing you as a drama queen I'm sure they understand your concerns about the state of your mental health

I told my mom (my dad is in the U.S.), but she didn't rlly seem to think of it as a problem. I dunno if I agree tho, cuz lately my sleeping pattern has been fucked and I've been feeling violent. Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Please go to a doctor my friend!! Especially if you have been feeling violent. You could do something terrible and it won't be your fault! I don't mean to be alarmist and it may not be a big deal but its not worth the risk.

Think everyone here's giving you some really good advise my friend
Your mom may have reacted that way so she does not want to worry you
But seriously, don't underestimate your symptoms, you may be missing some things that you don't know and are really important
Please call your doctor and talk ok?

How do you feel...still not any better? Cuz feeling violent sounds kinda bad...you shouldn't take this one easy.

Thanks guys. I have the email of a psychologist here in Amsterdam, so I'm going to mail her. Hopefully she will listen to me and not laugh at me or some shit. I'm scared I'm relapsing, tho, even if I'm not schizophrenic and I can't tell my mom about any of this because she won't take it seriously. Thank u so much for listening

No, it seems to be getting worse. I've been having visual hallucinations 3 times I believe (saw a dude in a black cloak stand in front of me, a chick in the middle of the road, and blood on the side of my finger.) I've tried breaking the girl I love into pieces with words, tried to hurt my friends emotionally and distance myself from them.

I highly doubt she will laugh at you, she's a professional man.
And I hope you do that sooner than later, if it starts getting really bad, sounds like it is, I'd go to the ER at the hospital, they will help you bro

Well I spoke to my mom and she's basically forbidding me to mail my psychologist, because a. she doesn't want me back on meds
b. she thinks these problems are just because of the book I've been reading (the Brothers Karamazov, which, while not cheery, is also not a sociopathic book, more based on brotherly love).

What the fuck gives her the right to claim that all this is just me overreacting to reading material. I am so fucking pissed off right now

Well, if you have something going on, then maybe the book is a trigger for you, and MAYBE She has a point

Example, for me, video games are a trigger, they give me nightmares. So bad, I piss the bed. Yeah, even at my age. Think about not being able to watch or play video games with your friends. Socially, it's like a social destruction or something. But I just can't do it.

So maybe give the book a break and see if it changes anything. It might take some time for it to make a difference. But if no change, then you know your right, and take that to mom.

But if she's right, keep in mind, it'll take longer for this thing to get better than it did to occure

Seeing how inner voices are urging me to kill her at this point, I don't think waiting is a good option. But I'm off to dinner.

My mom has vetoed the idea of mailing a doctor. Fuckin bitch. Still, I know things that I can put on the Internet that can get her in huge trouble. I'm so fuckin tempted to do it right now. Would feel awesome.

yeah, but if I'd need meds my mom would have to accept that here in Holland (out of my old meds)

Well, only so much I/we can do for you here in VT. You are you, you are there and we are here. You know what you need probably better than anyone else. You know the options at hand, all you need to do is make a decision, advocate for yourself, and follow through with it, for your own health

No problem, that's why we're here ok?
But, you should really consider, seriously consider talking some sort of action here, for yourself. Just talking about it, only does so much good. And after a while, might appear a bit watered down. But progress, now that's a different story.

I'm a bit more rational now and I feel like seeking help. I'm seeing someone on Thursday. It's just hard for me to determine if this is an issue or not that needs solving, or whether it will go away on its own...
