    Having been psychotic more than once, while the things you do can be sen as funny, I found them to be extremely costly in many ways - relationships, career, finances. Many of these took decades to repair. I think your blog would be more helpful if you conveyed the story but included a paragraph or two about prevention as well as steps of what someone should do if themselves or a loved one falls into this situation. NAMI has a small card I always carry with me on how to deal with someone who is either psychotic or suicidal.
