When the police was determining if I needed to go to mental hospital, I was too afraid to admit that I recently suffered from mild hallucinations from too much stress of masking my symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Bipolar Disorder way too much. I lied to my friends and my teachers and pretended that everything is alright.

I feel ashamed, I shouldn't have done that, I learned that hard way when I unmasked my symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Bipolar Disorder yesterday to the point where the police was involved. I kept those hallucinations a secret, because I am not crazy, I am just very stressed from pretending that everything is alright.
I am just so good at masking that my serious mental health crisis was overlooked.

I am very high-functioning and am very good at hiding my mild symptoms of psychosis from police, because I don't want them to think I am insane.
