I’m going to take a break from updating here. I seem to have hit another impasse of self-doubt and I need to sort myself out.
Although I’ve been reassured constantly by a mental health professional that this is not a diagnosable mental illness, I still retain doubts and will be looking into some possible explanations that haven’t been explored before.
The good news is, I think schizophrenia and bipolar mania have been ruled out; those are the two most debilitating illnesses and the ones I would be the most afraid of having. So far, the only thing I know for sure I have is an anxious phobia of losing my mind exacerbated by my experiences and that’s probably what this is.
