Anxiety is what happens when emotions are avoided. Not people, not places, not things, not events (yeah, all that stuff gets avoided too). It's emotions that count in avoidance.
Psychosis maybe what happens when the message of our emotions are ignored for too long.
If emotions are trying to tell us something, and they get more intense when we don't pay attention to them and actually go so far to suppress and sublimate them , then it's possible they could re-emerge as extra-sensory stimuli in individuals with brans susceptible to distortions in sensory integration.
