    I'm sorry but what do you mean when you say psychotic episode? Can you give an example just so it's easier to give advice

    I agree crying can help LMAO. if the psychotic episode isn't like... interpersonally paranoid in nature, just interacting with other people can help ground me. it's hit or miss if you want to describe what's going on to someone. it's helped sometimes, but sometimes it's made me go further off the deep end. like uhhhhhhhhhhh if you're convinced everyone around you are AIs and that they aren't real, be careful because depending on what they say, your belief may become even more solidified. totally not speaking from personal experience, nope. if it's specific to one person, like you're convinced they're out to get you, it can help to get input from an unbiased third party. it just depends how severe the delusion/belief is tbh. catching them quick and challenging them with the help of someone you trust at the moment can help in my experience. on the topic of crying... really anything that naturally balances out chemicals and stuff can help. I've had full blown paranoid delusions, the world is a simulation everyone is programmed with algorithms to talk with me naturally, all that shit, and after several hours of freaking out I simply decided I didn't care anymore and was like "you know what maybe I can 100% this game" and went to sleep, and when I woke up I felt all better. I've heard sleep deprivation is a huge trigger for psychosis, and you know what, I think they might be onto something.

      "I can 100% this game" is the best line I've ever read in relation to psychotic breaks like that. Thank you so much for the tips and sharing your experiences !! I'll be sure to write them down in the event another comes up. 💕

    I am going to be brutally honest here. I get high, masturbate furiously, or hurt myself. I'm working on changing those things but it's really hard. I will say though that any of those things vs "a problem" is better. To me anyway.
