Thanx mom. I have stayed in my room for 3 months now, because I am in a psychosis and have allot of violent thoughts and dreams. I don't just want to say " I have secluded myself so that I don't kill you or anyone else and it takes allot out of me to just maintain my hygiene every day ", so what can I do.
But I have realized that I am going to stop trying to explain my situation to people who will never understand or experience it themselves. We just have to learn to live with the stigma and judgements we are surely to face.
