I lurked and posted here on Uboachan once, but on the occult board. Well, I had shared my story on how the house I used to live in had an alleged haunting, but one anon suggested I'd been hallucinating the incidents since I mentioned even if I moved, it wouldn't stop.
It still hasn't, actually.
It actually has only gotten worse.
Being alone in a house, working the whole day and staying inside the house at night alone means it's usually quiet here. Last week, I've noticed whispers and knocking at my windows although I'm on the second floor in my apartment, and lately horrifying images start popping up in my peripheral vision. They're freaking the fuck outta me. It once yelled at me when I tried looking out the window.
A therapist session would mean grocery, rent and bills would kick my ass.
Family out of state, trip would last an entire day so that's outta the question. I also have to mention that they think mental illness is fake.
Fucking great, ain't it?
I had to post here, cause shit at least you people give sound advice.
Please give some advice, this is eating me alive and I feel like my sanity's fucking slipping.
Think about priorities. How severe is the problem and how hard would it be to deal with it? You can't provide for yourself if you totally lose it, and the longer you go without help, the harder it might be to recover. Getting help takes top billing in that case. You'll first have to confirm that there isn't a gas leak or anything like that. Does all of your family not believe in mental illness, or would any of your extended family be willing to help?
Sleep deprivation might also be the culprit if it is severe enough.
extended family? Well, there was drama about money and inheritance. We got the shortest stick as well.
I guess you're right. I'll look into doctors around here that are certified and have a good rep.
Thanks for the perspective!>>4678
I sleep for a good 9 hours, but maybe I can go to bed earlier. The internet can wait.
Glad to help. Despite drama, you shouldn't rule out extended family if it comes to that. Think about if you were the one being asked for help. Would you refuse?
No, of course not. I wouldn't refuse.
I'll try calling them tomorrow, it's late over here.
again, thanks. :)
If you're sleeping 9 hours a day then sleep deprivation is definitely not the reason.
Wouldn't it still be possible depending on whenever OP is sleeping well/properly or not?
See what happens if you create ambient noise; there have been cases where if the mind is too deprived of sensation that it will begin to manufacture hallucinations.
That said, what you're seeing and what you're hearing may not be necessarily related– you could be having auditory hallucinations while the visual is more common leftover dream-stuff.
Pussy is an obsession
My mouth is watering
IIRC there were some experiments that had a patient locked in a bed. They had been blindfolded and they had headphones emitting white noise and static. Reportedly it manifested in illusions and hallucinations.
do a home purification ritual
it's pretty simple
Probably schizophrenia. If you won't get treatment, just ignore the things that are not "normal". If do this for long enough, you'll be able to involuntarily filter hallucinations from real things.
Example:>some shadow dude told me to fuck off from the outside of the second floor's window>the probability of that happening irl is 0, ignoring
