psychosis is infact pretty differant to dp. the most basic sign that dp is not psychotic behavour is the fact that the sufferer indeed knows there is something wrong, people who suffer from psychotic behavour are not aware that they are experiencing anything out of the ordinary.
most people have no idea that there is anything wrong with me, they may think im pretty shy and introverted, but when i tell people im having problems they are allways very surprised, even my close friends often ask if im 'better' yet, as they dont really see any problems, mind you, i am very good at hiding it.
psychosis bundles together a whole heap of behavours and symptons, like, delusions and hulicinations, but like i said before, the sufferer isnt aware that there is a problem.
i know it feels like it's some kinda psychotic related problem, but really it isnt.
