  1. Perhaps it was more accurately described as Sleep Paralysis? I was with my dad taking a LOT of medications, heavy ones. Like, a LOT. And I was so fogged up I was trapped and couldn't even speak coherently. I was trying to convey to him that I wanted to take less or even none at all, that I was pinned down mentally. It was like extreme dementia. It was terrifying. And I couldn't do more than breath heavily, impossible it was to actually make a noise or move. Anyone else ever come across sleep paralysis? Call it a sleeping hallucination.
  2. Hey all, This place has helped me so much. So, first, thank you all for being here. I'm having trouble because I'm not sure if what I'm experiencing are loud thoughts or hallucinations. My psychiatrist calls them voices and has prescribed an anti psychotic, but I'm just not sure. Could you help? Yesterday I was walking outside, saw a shallow pond and heard "You should kill yourself." This isn't a thought I have a lot, and felt inside my head but not necessarily my own thought, if that makes sense. But it wasn't a separate voice from my normal head voice, and was more annoying than anything else. The more disturbing thing that happened yesterday was a strong feeling/visual that there was a crack at the top of my head and a nail should be hammered into it. Again, I knew it wasn't happening and wasn't afraid of doing that to myself (although I have been afraid of other visuals like this before). Are either of these things hallucinations? Are they psychotic features? Or is it possible that I'm so paranoid that I'm going crazy that I'm amplifying my normal, albeit disturbing, thoughts.
  3. I get the sensation of worms crawling in my ears, could this be a medical condition or psychiatric problem? Is there any medical conditions for this. Happens at random times but often when Im more stressed, I have had people look in my ears before and there is nothing there, there is no infection, trauma or pain. Taking and not taking my medication does not affect the sensation (Seroquel XL 150mg and Amitriptyline 50mg) It's still there. It fustrates me and makes me want to stick things in my ears to kill it Im not a person that goes to the GP over nothing so im reluctant to keep going back , I only mention this problem when going with other problems. Im just getting annoyed and worried that its my stupid head making up things. I Haven't been out of the UK so it cant be a parasite. I want it to be medical, got a feeling im just trying to convince my self otherwise. Thank you
  4. Hi, I kind of feel like a whiny bitch asking this, but I have been looking all over the internet, and can't find an answer that "satisfies" me, because it isn't really from the most reliable source. I should preface this by saying I am in the midst of a bad mixed episode, the worst I have had for many years. Also, I am usually considered BP II, so theoretically psychosis is not a symptom. My official diagnosis is BP NOS, but it looks like that will change when the DSM 5 comes out, and I will be BP II "again." Okay, if you have auditory hallucinations during a mixed episode, are you automatically psychotic? I've had two incidences now, one on Friday/Saturday night (I think it was about 4AM), and then one yesterday. The one on Friday, I could hear a conversation, but couldn't understand the words. I won't go into the fascinating details that are only of interest to me, but there was only one possible "real" explanation, I checked for it, and it wasn't happening. And I knew as soon as I heard it it was a hallucination. I don't know why, because there *was* one reasonable, if unusual explanation. But I knew. The one yesterday I knew right away, too, but I wasn't as scared. I don't know if that is just because I had already experienced it, or what, because logically, I should be more scared, since that is a second incidence. Both times, after I looked around, and decided it was a hallucination, I was "visited" one last time in a really hugely obvious way, like a "Fuck you, you think we aren't a hallucination? Let us demonstrate that we are." But I already *thought* they were hallucinations. I know stuff about the people speaking in my first hallucination that I couldn't possibly know, and despite not being able to make out words. I know the man was Jewish and from Brooklyn, I knew how one woman dressed, and that she was an alto, and one was blond and petulant. How does that even make sense? The guy that spoke to me yesterday I know less about. The thing is, I don't *feel* the way would think I should if I were psychotic. If you ask me, I'm not. But I'm having these hallucinations, and I can't find any other reason on the internet for having them. I looked up the symptoms for psychosis, and I had almost none of them aside from hallucinations, except personal cleanliness, and some language issues (I can't remember, I'm tired), but both of those could also be explained by a mixed state. I have to admit, my personal cleanliness is crazy bad, the worst ever. I no longer really give a shit how I look, I try to look okay when I go out for DH's sake, but I really couldn't give a fuck. I have to shower tonight, because I have an MRI, but that will be after 8 days. The previous shower to that one was 17 days before (that shower, not today). So basically, I guess it all boils down to "Whaaaaa?" Any thoughts?
  5. I'm posting just to see if anyone here has experienced anything similar, I know you can't diagnose me or anything. So basically, I hear my own thoughts (though sometimes there's some unfamiliarity to them), or just random snippets of them spoken internally, but with a changed voice. They often start looping again and again, which is really detrimental to my concentration and ability to form coherent thoughts. Even writing this took way longer than it should have. Would you say this is what is meant by thought echo? What throws me off though is that I always knew that it is created in my head, so I have insight. Is having insight common even for the first time you hallucinate?
