    My delusional phenomena

    That delusional phenomena that I experienced looks very similar to Fregoli Syndrome, but it's not Fregoli Syndrome, I don't know how to accurately call it, it wasn't prosecutory in nature. When I had severe communication delays, I believed that no one has facial expressions and thought that...

    Depression and acceptance

    Hello blog, it's been a while. Last time I posted an update I had just gone through a mini-psychotic break and I had just been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
