SO THANKS TO CORONAVIRUS, PSYCHOSIS IS ALSO ON THE RISE, BUT DON’T STRESS TOO MUCH ABOUT IT
So I’m at a loss to figure out how to understand what this really means. Coronavirus, if nothing else, has caused a degree of confusion that would stagger a bronze statue. And no, I’m not referring to the bull on Wall Street. I’ve heard about Covid Toes, Fever, runny nose, dizziness, an inflammation syndrome, anything like any kind of flu, etc., etc., etc. Pretty much anything anyone might have with hay fever or a damn cold could really be Coronavirus. But if that wasn’t daunting enough, how about this? Now, another symptom that could mean you have Coronavirus, is psychosis. Seriously.
SO IF CORONAVIRUS HAS YOU LOSING YOUR MIND, YOU MAY IN FACT BE LOSING YOUR MIND, OR NOT
So now, people who are stressing intensely have something else to worry themselves about. Psychosis. Well, any anyone they’re in Lockdown with, too. We already know that issues of domestic violence have gone up, even as the reports have gone down. It’s the main problem of captivity, right? And now, people who are already stressed out of their minds can also worry that they, or their loved ones, could be losing their minds, too. Because, Coronavirus psychosis. That’s right! Lose your mind, then, maybe, lose your life, too. I mean, that’s enough to make someone crazy!
STRESS IS THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF PSYCHOSIS, AND CORONAVIRUS STRESS IS EVERYWHERE
The research that has discovered this comes from folks at Orygen and La Trobe University in Melbourne. Psychosis usually happens when people are stressing from things in their lives. And the researchers realized that there hasn’t been this much global stress, maybe ever before. And no, I’m not saying nothing stressful has happened before. But I am saying there are more people alive, stressed, than ever before. More people are in isolation, trapped with uncertainties, than we’ve ever had in the modern world. So people who would otherwise never be psychotic find themselves knee deep in fertile soil. So here’s something else for us to, um, stress about. The three core symptoms of psychosis are hallucinations, delusions and confused and/or disturbed thoughts.
So if you watch Fox News regularly, maybe, like, stop. Immediately. And reach out for help until you find it.
