quadrophenia Posted June 13, 2006 Share Posted June 13, 2006 Lately, every once in a while, I'll hear things, but I know they're not real. Where does the official "cutoff point" between psychosis, and the random neurological misfirings that happen to even "normals", start? And does any of this have anything to do with my OCD? Once, last year, I thought I heard a bunch of cell phones going off, in the hallway outside my room at work. I looked out the doorway, and beheld an empty room. For the next full year, nothing else like that happened. Then, the other night, I noticed that I heard some really tiny little melodic note sounds from the ceiling fan (clearly not noises from its motor), that sounded almost like chimes. It was actually sort of pretty. It went away after a few minutes, and then I just heard the fan and the motor. Last night, I was reading another website, and the print started looking almost lumpy, like there were bubbles under the words, or something, and parts of the [black-and-white] text page looked like it had flashing traces of bluish-white shimmering light, especially under parts I was just reading. I should edit this to add that this wasn't a Flash animation, or any other sort of special graphics thing. It was plain HTML, just a generic bulletin board like this one. ...Yet, as soon as these things happen, I instantly realize that they aren't real. Does that ever happen just at random? Or paradoxically from Seroquel? Or as a rarer OCD symptom? Or am I actually going some kind of mild, high-insight form of psychotic? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
