My medical records say that I have obsessive neurosis, must've been diagnosed when I was younger - what exactly is it and do I need help?
Obsessive: Obsessive disorder has to do with thoughts that won't go away and preoccupy us, worry us. It is often linked to behaviors that we do to prevent some unknown harm from happening (compulsions). Together they are called obsessive compulsive disorder or ocd. It sounds like you were obsessed with some thoughts when. If that is still an issue it is very treatable by a clinical psychologist. Peace.
Severity: The distinction doesn't exist in the current diagnostic system, however the difference was based on the notion that neurotic disorders were ones that were not as serious and did not affect the perception of reality (hallucinations, delusions).
Psychosis is: When a person loses touch with reality in some manner.
Reality testing: Psychosis usually refers to where there is a break with reality no matter what the cause. Auditory or visual hallucinations are considered psychotic symptoms as do paranoid thoughts. People with fixed false beliefs usually referred to as delusions are considered to be psychotic. Neurosis is not an official word but usually refers to non psychotic conflicts and symptoms complexes.
Different concepts: Generalized anxiety disorder (gad) is a symptom-defined category in the diagnostic and statistical manual that all mental health professionals use.
