Nice to learn that you are better.
In an earlier post I revealed that my spouse had a problem with psykosis episodes that started after her first childbirth. I noticed that before every episode she was unable to understand sarcasm and after a few episodes I used that to check her out by using sarcasm.
Interstingly, when she was completly well she understood sarcasm easily but in the very very beginning of an episode she wouldn't understand sarcasm and I used that as an indicator to get ready to help her out.
We no longer live together and she is an old woman now and all her psykosis episodes is just a memory and she is now very well.
I'm curious to learn if there was periods when you were able to understand sarcasm like my former spouse?
From my own experience I have noticed that people
in the very start of a psykosis episode also suffers from not beeing able to understand sarcasm.
This is before they show any real signs of the mental illness.
I lived together with a woman many years that had this kind of problems and I used sarcasm to check her up so to speak. It never failed to indicate when she was about to have a new episode and to be prepared to help her out.
