I'm mentally sick

Publicerad 2020-09-30 18:00:00 i Antipsychiatry, Autobiographical notes, Psychiatry and psychology, Psychoses, Sickness and health,

I got some clarity around my situation today, that I'm genuinely mentally sick. I believe psychoses are a real phenomenon and I think I have been through such one lately. A lot of bullshit has been written on this blog during my psychosis. I have cleaned up the worst mess. But I do not want to take away the rest, because it is an interesting document about my psychosis. I hope that I do not become so zealous that I quit this blog completely.
But I still believe I have somehow met God in all this sickness, met the divine during my psychosis. So strange reality is, that we can meet God in sickness. I believe that I need care, but with love, not with tyranny.
