More struggle in battling symptoms. Psychosis symptoms still happen. At times you don't know where you are. Weird thoughts that don't seem to be connected come out of nowhere. Why? I'm not sure. Despite that, you have to fight to regain some sense of being grounded. You can't just sit back and do nothing.
I have to take breaks when dealing with lots of different stimulus. I can't listen to any tunes for more than about 30 seconds. Beyond that, you feel like you're going to snap. Some days there's no noise. Just peace and quiet. Trying to feel safe.
No matter what, we're not abnormal in any way.
