questions about psychosis

is it possible for someone with psychosis to know a few hallucinations aren't real(or know that some of their hallucinations are hallucinations)?
when someone has psychosis do they act a certain way?
if they have an imaginary friend do/or could they know they're imaginary even though they can see them sometimes?

Re: questions about psychosis

Like most mental disorders psychosis varies from its intensity and how it effects someone. One of my diagnosis is severe major depressive disorders with psychotic features. At times I hear a voice that I know is not real but at the same time it is very difficult to ignore. I have hallucinations that I know are not real but at the same time they have an effect on me mentally, for example I will watch a wall move and I know it is not real but it makes me question my stability which is never a good thing. Whether you believe it is real or not does not really make a difference at most levels because it is still going to take its toll mentally. There are extreme levels of psychosis which tends to show up in newspapers and what have you because they ended in violence where the person thought the people in their lives where possessed or maybe they thought they were someone else and it ends in violence but like i said before this is the extreme level.

take care
