I’m an American guy in my 40’s. I’ve always been fascinated by UFOs. There seems to be a lot of sloppy ufologists who don’t care about the truth, but I tend to be a believer.
Anyway, I guess I had psychosis a few years ago. It was really awful for several weeks and then it mostly went away except for bizarre religious-themed experiences every few months. I spent a couple of years trying to believe in Christianity. I thought God was trying to tell me something important but I couldn’t understand. Eventually I drifted back to atheism and I luckily brought-up these experiences to a therapist who suggested psychosis. At first I didn’t accept the psychosis explanation, but as I read more over several months I could see that it made a lot of sense.
Psychosis made me more paranoid and superstitious, so I’m hoping to learn about the process of skepticism. Maybe that will help me get back to normal.
