I have tried many antidepressants for MDD (major depressive disorder) so I don't see things, and benzodiazepines. I can't deal with the side effects and only remained on medicines for a short time including anti-psychotic medicines. I have discussed esketamine for my depression but my psychiatrist thinks that because I dissociate at times the risk may increase psychosis. It's in discussion.

I told my therapist about when I was attacked and nearly killed. I fought back and I won. They got hurt. Now in my records it says I have mention of a psychotic disorder. So the people who attacked me – what were they? So that's in my file. I do not think I received proper treatment. I'm angry about it. And I will ask my therapist about it. This is why I have posted. So does everyone in the war who fights back or die have a psychotic disorder?

I just recently was put in a mental health facility for treatment for borderline personality disorder. I have a psychosis. It's bad. I'm on medications for it but I will always have it. I got discharged today and I'm looking at the world in a different view. It is scary, but I have a lot of friends that are helping.
