These sound like true hallucinations to me, Nel.
Some hallucinations are normal - a VERY brief vision of something moving in your peripheral vision, thinking you might have heard your name called in the distance, thinking you see a flash of lightening in the very far distance, thinking you hear the doorbell or cell phone ring quietly.
Your hallucinations go on for much longer than a brief moment and are very detailed - I really think you need to make an appointment with a doctor.
Hm. I think it would take at least an hour to go through and see patterns in your mood tracker - I think that's probably a helpful exercise for you, but I'm not sure many on this board are going to go through and learn everything that's in there. You've put a LOT of stuff on your tracker! ;D
Could you specifically describe the hallucinations better? Like, do you hear your name called? Do you think you see something moving out of the corner of your eye? What, specifically, are you seeing and feeling and hearing in these hallucinations?
Yeah, sorry about that. I'm trying to find patterns with things, so I track everything. >_>
Um... The two out-of-head hallucinations were a woman walking into the room, leaning very close to my face, and breathing in like she was about to yell. The other one was something large and black and I think vaguely insect shaped slipping down from the ceiling. It sounded like plaster cracking.
Everything else is mostly out the corners of my eyes, like shadows or animals near my feet, something that sits just outside of where I can see it clearly. A lot of the time I feel like something is almost pressed against my back, and no matter how I turn I can't see it. A lot of the time it feels like just before someone touches you, when you know they're going to.
The most common of them is that I'll be looking at an empty room and be convinced that there's something there, I just can't see it. As if it were invisible, or I were looking at an image of the room overlaid over reality.
If that makes any sense what-so-ever.
Sometimes the things out of the corners of my eyes have sounds attached, like knocking or scratching or breathing, but just as I can't quite see them, I can't quite hear them either.
have you heard about indian meditation or yoga do that ...i bet u u wil be f9
Thankyou very much for your help, RockRose. I really appreciate it.
I'm going to make an appointment with the psych after Boxing Day.
