Very good, I dont have psychosis but i feel like this described the feeling in a way i could understand. It must be hard when this happens.... thanks for sharing

thank you sm for playing, and for your kind words! i'm glad that my meaning came across 🙏✨

I don't go to the movie theater anymore... Largely because of feelings that this piece reflects super well. And because of pandemic stuff. Maybe one day we can build a world where we can all watch a movie together without feeling like this.

thank you for your words! 

i would like to live in a world like that too ;o; i think one of the things that helps is having people in your corner who are understanding about your fears and how you react to them... but unfortunately it's not something everyone has, at least not all the time. 

but... i think that there are people who understand out there, and there are so many opportunities for healing, too.

either way! i hope that you can one day feel safe in a theatre again, if that's something that you want to do. and thank you again for playing ;u;

the thing about the shooting is so real. had it last year during the new a quiet place movie and ended up leaving like 15 minutes in.
