General Psychosis a broad diagnosis of misunderstanding realities

“A mental disorder characterized by a disconnection from reality”

Reality is something we all feel and sense with our senses. This is how we understand what is real around us and what we understand from when we are little. Those with Psychosis or any form of psychotic disorder cannot differentiate what is "real" and what is all projected from their thoughts.

There are many different types of psychotic disorders as a whole ranging from Manic-depression, Schizophrenia and even Anorexia. As expressed above, everyone expresses psychotic episodes where pressures from life bring you down to a low and it affects you for an enduring amount of time but those who maintain this constant stress and unbalance towards their emotions causes them to become very unstable in a lot of neutral social environments
REality is DISTORTED with this condition. Where in some days we are grounded and everything makes sense inside and out. The in other days we are trapped or stuck in the little worlds that keep us in and pushes us away from life to the point of almost losing everything or doing nothing.

Psychosis can include hallucinations (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting or feeling something that is not real).

Three out of 100 people will experience psychosis at some time in their lives.

About 100,000 adolescents and young adults in the US experience first episode psychosis each year.

Psychosis can include paranoia or delusions (believing in something that is not real even when presented with facts).

Psychosis can include disordered thoughts and speech.

Psychosis affects people from all walks of life.
