Shhhhh, did you hear that? Over there, something is watching us… There are monkeys EVERYWHERE!
Psychosis is a mental illness that makes normal life activities and demands extremely challenging. In a sense, reality may come in and out of focus, leaving one’s judgement impaired. There are a wide range of symptoms, from seeing, hearing, smelling, and even tasting things that are not actually present. There could be delusional thoughts and the debilitating stronghold of paranoia.
Psychosis is a disease, but can also be the result of a brain injury. Drug use may result in the Psychotic symptoms, but not considered true psychosis. Psychosis is treated with medication, and in extreme cases electroshock therapy (ECT). www.medicinenet.com.
