Hi. I recently went through a psychotic episode where I threw out almost everything I had in my apartment that was mine, including clothes. I was so paranoid. Has something similar happened to anyone?

    YES. I was “organizing” but wrecked a lot of my belongings and gave out/trashed a lot of my stuff. My landlord eventually kicked me out because of the mess I had made and moved what I had left into a storage unit where I further wrecked and lost some stuff. I lost most of my clothes and lost my sense of style.

      I was wrecking some stuff, too. Like technology. But I mostly just threw out stuff

    Yes, I did this before I got diagnosed last year, literally threw away all of my belongings except for like my bed and a dresser and furniture like that. Most of my things are sentimental too so it really sucked when I realized what I did. In my head i felt like I needed my room to be completely clear, only the white walls. Weird.

      Yes I miss some of my stuff, like my clothes but I’ve also lost weight so they wouldn’t really fit me anymore, anyway

    I’ve done it a couple of times , maybe close to 5 or 7. Think of it as a fresh start unless you threw out very valuable belongings with a lot of significance materialistic things can always be replaced

      meant to say “Sentimental value” instead of “ valuable belongings with a lot of significance ”
