(while psychotic, had vivid and elaborate hallucinations and delusions) At least this what they told me but they were the same as real. They were spiritual related causing to go to Church, I recently "graduated" Catholic.
Have always been athletic and healthy, never dreamed this could happen.
Didn't want to live for a long time, severe tinnitus is my major issue.
I gave up against T. I now do whatever T allows me to do. T is a persistent condition, full of stamina, never quits or gives up.
