Is bipolar with psychotic features similar to schizophrenia? Is it the same thing or how is it different?

      @shannonxnicole im really not too sure how they differentiate between mania psychosis and schizophrenia? Maybe schizophrenics have chronic psychosis but with bipolar it comes in episodes

      Good question. When I was in manic psychotic episode I was not paranoid and didn't think people were after me, I didn't think I was being watched or my phone tapped etc but I definitely had lost touch with reality and couldn't think straight

        @MissPop I was extremely paranoid during my episodes.
