New here, just wanted to find out if anyone else is dealing with the same as me or similar. I get the intense fear of slipping into a delusion or I will hear an external voice in my head any moment, that brings lots of anxiety. It will get triggered if I think I see a shadow out the corner of my eye, or a flash or something weird in my vision. Also if I can make a face out of inanimate objects, whilst looking at a tree or bush or something silly like that. It can even be triggered if my inner monologue is chatty & I start to think what if I dissociate it one day as my own voice. So my ocd basically themes itself round losing control of my mind, not having a grip on reality. Or devolving schizophrenia.
I would like to make very clear that I don’t have anything against people that do have schizophrenia or psychosis. Or that it should even be feared in any way.
