Short & Sweet Advice From A 10 Year VeteranDon't tell anyone who doesn't know. They don't get it, they never will.
Let it go, unless you're with one of us. I was obsessed at first, looking online and for support groups and whatnot. They all say the same thing and have the same damn checklist of symptoms, a cut-and-paste slop job if I ever saw one. We all want answers, miracle pills, some kind of hypnosis that gets this bug out of our heads, but there aren't any. Live with it but don't let it be who you are.
Fictionalize your story and share it, maybe even sell it. People pay to be entertained by our experiences, and I kind of see why. They do tend to merge our realities (as it were) with these so-called mind bending movies that give me a sense of deja vu.
Everyone seems to be bipolar these days, it's like the flavor of the month. Most of them are just moody and selfish. Let them drone on and on about how sad they are or whatever because they're "biploar." Just nod and smile.
Don't talk about the stuff you see and hear. They're not out to get you, but if you keep saying weird stuff to people in authority, they will just keep adding it to your crazy scorecard.
Finally, the one that took me the longest, you're not alone even when you are alone. So very few people understand psychotic tendencies and what happens to us, but some of us do.
Go forth and be merry.
