I have seen more Psychiatrists and other MH professionals in my life than I can to count, none are willing or wanting to work with a person who has AsPD. Medication is about all they will offer.

He then learns to live with himself the way he is and is able to recognize when things are/aren't real. It is a cool concept. Not sure if it would work in real life but who knows?
Truthfully, I've had very minor Psychosis for years (3 or so years), very mild... and I have up until recently... always been about to distinguish when/what is real and is not. The mind in that state, is very powerful at convincing you that unreal things, are real... it's impossible for me to then distinguish between them, unfortunately. Of course, I act accordingly to what I perceive to be real... and it seems my logical mind is on vacation during these episodes, which makes trying to figure out reality... even more difficult.
It's something that's hard to explain to someone who has never experienced any form of Psychosis.
