Not all psychosis is delusional thinking. My bad. A/H is a psychotic feature. The use of meds like abilify or seroquel (which I have taken both) may be applicable. Some people are too activated by abilify (like I was), and seroquel too sedating (for me the XR or XL can't remember the two letters after) was too sedating for me. So I went back to just my AD. The regular Seroquel worked well for a while, then I didn't need it anymore. Psychotic features are scary. Meds are the only thing I know that help with that. However, of course, there is a need for a multidisciplinary approach to rule out other factors, and facilitate the healing of the whole person. Recovery is totally possible with sustained effort, setbacks, followed by effort asap without feeling shame for any setbacks. Yes, of course the illness is going to say there is no hope (that's just a symptom like a runny nose is for a cold), however, there is hope for anyone. You would be amazed how many people recover with about a 50% effort. Keep coming back here to maintain perspective. I find that we are exceptionally strong people, since if "normal" people had to endure what we do, they would give up more readily. Surrender to win!
