Psychosis or paranoia

Hi,

I have been told that a psychosis has to have medication. It will not just go away on it's own. It continues to worsen until hospitalization maybe necessary. That's my experience.

I have forgotten to take my thyroid meds, and given myself a psychosis. It's called myexedema madness. He may have another health condition driving the psychosis. It's good to get ontop of it, check his electrolytes and consult with a doctor.

That's scary to me at this point, I was hoping he would return to a normal state even if briefly, so I could get him to seek help, yes he must have an underlying cause, but I honestly do not remember any red flags for this, it took us by surprise, although he does have an alcohol problem which when he came here was part of the deal, no drinking and get a job, but yes I will do what I can praying he will change his mind and seek help but at this point he doesn't think he needs any he believes his paranoid world is the reality
