Those seem like symptoms of a psychosis. The symptoms of depersonalisation and derealisation -- which are feelings of unreality, for example -- are similar to the symptoms of psychosis. Worst case scenario, you might have schizophrenia. You should talk about this to a doctor as soon as possible as one's symptoms tend to worsen the more one keeps postponing help. Good luck!I can't get this idea out my head that someone or something controls my thoughts and I'm a robot?
Yes sadly I've had a few people on forums believe it's psychosisnot necessarily
I had a day where I also thought something controls my mindYes sadly I've had a few people on forums believe it's psychosis
I Duno why I have had bipolar episodes in the past for which I'm on anti psychotic meds which ive had for 3 years which would
Surely avoid me having psychosis?
These thoughts on life really trouble me it's amazing how you can think about being controlled and really feel you have no free will just by googling it's awful
it would be ideal in the sense that since god is our creator and wants the best for us we would live a life that is good for us . but as I said god doesnt control us . he gave us free will and we all have our own personalityRisperidone.
I thought also that if god did control my mind and everybody else we would effectively all be one person chatting to ourself a same ideas as Solipsism so it's not really ideal is it?
I hate when people say psychosis as that sets me off on another worry I have that and I worry all day. Also I'm sure psychosis You are generally unaware you are in it.
How did you get over the worry people are controlling your mind? I found with some reading of forums that it is a more common thought than I first imagined and people with dp and ocd do wonder it.
I think exercise would be goodWhen my ocd isn't worrying about germs it switches to these existence worries. Basically for months it was Solipsim and then my mind got bored and went into the worry my mind is controlled or I just worry life is a dream or I don't exist or my life is a lie? It seems awful to have these thoughts how can I distract myself from these unhelpful thoughts? I worry about fate and destiny and worry why things happen?
I was probably on the edge on psychosis . I thought that a outside power wants me to do something . it was basically a mix of ocd and psychosis ?To preface with this: I remember being very scared that I was developing Schizophrenia when I first developed DP, so I don't mean to alarm anyone.
"Do you think that your thoughts might be controlled by an outside entity," is a psychosis screening question. According to the docs, psychosis involves having these bizarre thoughts pertaining to things such as mind control and believing they aren't a manifestation of an abnormal mental state. If you can realize that there is no concrete basis to believe your mind is being controlled, then you still have sanity.
What constitutes a bizarre thought depends on the person's culture. Some cultures might believe in ghosts who control people's minds, in which case that wouldn't be a bizarre thought.
I have this. It's NOT psychosis. Why do you feel like someone is controlling you? Because with DP, you lose your sense of self, the sense of CONTROL over yourself. You feel life an automaton, a robot, a puppet. You have no free will. All this makes you FEEL as if someone is controlling you which should be treated as just that, a feeling. And btw, a psychotic person can't distinguish between what's real and what's not. While with dp/dr, you can and you're aware of the whole thing.I had been feeling better for a month or so but lately I've googled the free will questions and the existance and mind controlled stuff and if I am a robot and I feel bad again.
I feel it's a constant battle to bash these thoughts away? Is there a cure?
