Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am very sorry to know you have been undergoing these overwhelming symptoms.
The symptoms you report here, just as you think, are not typical of BPD but psychotic symptoms.
Please, you need to get support from your family and get back to the clinic where you received support. Both, psychotherapy and medication are necessary, and you should keep receiving as much support as necessary.
You are very young person, thus your chances for rehabilitation are much higher as long as you receive adequate support. Do you live alone?
I see you chose not to interact, that's OK. Please I just want to confirm that your fears appear to accurate.
You are describing experiences and symptoms pointing at delusions and hallucinations, both typical of Schizophrenia. I see you have been hospitalized and got medication and counseling and have a case manager, then please get in touch with them ASAP and contact family an let them know how you are feeling, for them to help you.
If you feel suicidal or like it happened before, that somebody could harm you and trying to protect yourself as you did before hospitalization, please call 911 and let them know what you are experiencing to get immediate support.
Hope you get well with the support you need and deserve.
