Self diagnosis is a bad idea in general, even for a doctor, but it is impossible for anyone to self-diagnose any type of psychosis. But by definition, a person cannot diagnose him or herself with a psychotic disorder - how can a person simultaneously lose touch with reality yet still be able to discern what is real?
