Hi everyone, I think it may be my anxiety, but I am worried about a loved one who may be experiencing psychosis... The trouble is that a lot of what they experience resembles alot of what some may classify it as spritual events (ghosts and such)... The other problem is that those kinds of things are also experienced when someone goes through psychosis....
So I am wondering how to tell if what someone is experiencing is psychosis or if it is real and spiritual.... Or is the only way to tell to get medical, neurological, and psychological tests done to rule them out?
At the moment it is not something that is harmful physically but my loved one is terrified when they experience these things.... I don't want them terrified and they don't want to feel terrified. I also don't want them to feel crazy either... or feel offended if I suggest that this could be psychosis.... it is very real for them and I hope their is a way of reassurance.... Anyone else who has the same experiences could you please share? Maybe even share how you realized that it was psychosis?
