Mon, Jun 3 11:51am · Psychosis or paranoia in Mental Health

Just want to let you know that when I was on Meth I was experiencing this same phenomenon. I am not a doctor but I believe this is a drug induced phycosis. I exhibited the exact same symptoms and behaviors. I took electrical appliances, phones and computers apart and was convinced I was being watched. I would often call the FBI and report things I thought were suspicious. I was also hearing voices. I have been off Meth for 3yrs now and these symptoms are completely gone. I didn't need mental health medicine or diagnosis I just needed to get into rehab and off the drugs. If you can get him to rehab I believe these symptoms will subside. Take this seriously and do all you can to get him to go…this can get worse and develop into a long term mental illness.

Agreed, I don't think denial was the issue, I think it was a lack of willingness to deal with the issues that caused me to turn to addiction. Often some of these issues were hidden childhood hurts that were not even recognized.

I feel that the most important character trait is integrity. I feel this because as soon as you start to deny what you are feeling or start to tell untruths you are starting to "cover up" again which is why in essence a lot of us turned to drugs to "cover" up something we could not or did not want to deal with.

3 years ago I found myself homeless on the streets of Los Angeles with a 25yr. Meth addiction, an alcoholic drinking a gallon of vodka a day, a two pack a day cigarette smoker and prostituting myself for all if these habits. I tried to commit suicide..I didn't want to live. I grew up in foster homes.. Had no family and no hope.. I had lost my daughter, husband and everyone who remotely cared about me..Feb 8, 2016 I cried out to Jesus …he answered me with the Walter Hoving Home. A beautiful Christian discipleship home that saved my life and gave me back hope and a relationship with Jesus. Here I am 3yrs. Later..grateful and alive. I now work for Unshattered who employs women who are winning their battle with addiction.
