wrt tht post abt what psychosis rlly means as opposed to ‘evil person’, HALLUCINATIONS ARE NOT THE ONLY SYMPTOM OF PSYCHOSIS!!!! there are lot more!!!!
psychotic symptoms are split into two main groups, positive and negative symptoms.
positive symptoms = hallucinations and delusions. hallucinations are experiencing sounds, smells, sights, tactile sensations, etc, that aren’t actually there (i.e. seeing humanoid figures made of light/shadow); delusions are strongly held beliefs that are unrealistic and objectively false (i.e. russians are poisoning my water supply)
negative symptoms are a lot more complicated but include a flat/blunted affect, catatonia, social withdrawal, lack of speech, memory impairment, etc, and are often overlooked despite being considered the more debilitating part of psychosis in many cases
the point is: please stop perpetuating the idea that psychosis = hallucinations, not all psychotic ppl experience hallucinations and psychosis is WAY more complicated than just hallucinations. thank u
