I'm new here and am not sure if religious topics are kosher, so to speak, but I know nowhere else better to turn than here for discussion. As a disclaimer, I have believed in God and Jesus almost my whole life, so I'm coming from that perspective, but any spirituality applies to this imo. My entire psychosis was spiritual. I thought I could directly communicate with God in my mind and that He was trying to tell me things through the tv and through music, among other things. This made it very hard for me believe I was sick and to want to take my meds. How do you go back to feeling close to God, any god, after you experienced a new reality that felt so literal? Things I used to count as normal, like praying and feeling God answer those prayers, make me question my sanity now. My entire faith that God even exists has really been tested after psychosis. Does God actually communicate with us? What if any feeling of being close to God is just our brain playing tricks on us? Would love to know what any of you think about this. Also, sorry if this post is too long. Should I go the blog route next time?
I am Christian, but that doesn't mean that life is any easier for me. I am struggling with self injury and depression which is to say I am a broken and imperfect person too. But the reason I am still living is because of Jesus, and what he did on the cross for me. The fact that He loves me so much keeps me going. So I just want to say, He loves you so much too, and wants to see you free from whatever you are going through. Life is a journey, and there will be extremely hard times. But I know there is a great plan for you, even though we can't always see it. <3
