I’m worried and nervous all the time and can’t seem to relax
Psychosis and its symptoms can leave you feeling unsure as to what is real and what is not. As a result, you might feel constantly worried and on the look-out for danger. Everyone worries occasionally – whether we are sitting an important exam, having a medical test, giving a presentation or job interview. This is perfectly normal. However, worry can become distressing when it affects your ability to carry out daily tasks, study, work or social life. In some cases, worry and anxiety can be a part of other symptoms of psychosis. The typical feelings that might lead to a diagnosis of anxiety are when worrying is uncontrollable and causes distress, you can’t let go of your worries and you worry about areas of your life – from your job, to health and getting household chores finished.
