whats the difference? aren't they pretty similair. i don't think i heard things or saw things only when i smoked that weed, a few days or for like a week i was paranoid, didn't sleep. saw things like in slow motion. things seemed either too big or too small for me, or like i was small or big, hard to explain, also like noises bothered me and some noises were like slow noises, like when listening to music it wen't really slow and sounded weird. and this was like for a week or 2.

Do you have schizophrenia? What Kenc127 said is correct. You can, of course, have varying levels of insight into your hallucinations, but as a hard and fast rule, psychosis is a break with reality and reality testing. In between psychotic episodes, some schizophrenics have a hard time reconciling themselves with their illness, but some dont. Usually, with medication, a certain level of insight and acceptance can be reached. I've been around many psychotic people, and I speak from experience as well as book knowledge.
