I'm really freaked out because I used to have terrifying hallucinations as a kid and I'm worried that they're coming back. As a kid, I had visual, auditory and tactile hallucinations. I saw things like snakes, lizards, people standing over my bed, corpses, a demon or monster (not sure). A lot of the time, I'd also see someone out of the corner of my eye. Like I could feel someone standing there but when I looked directly at them, they'd disappear. And I would hear people calling my name, singing, walking down the hall, heavy breathing, etc. Sometimes, I'd be half asleep and I'd hear a noise...this would start out quiet and get louder and louder until I got startled awake. You have to understand, this was in the dead of night and everyone in my house denies making any sounds...I'd also hold my breath to make sure it wasn't me breathing and it wasn't. I'd also feel the "snakes" moving over my face, I'd feel people like jabbing at me, touching my hair or grabbing at my feet when I was trying to sleep. It was always the worst when I was trying to sleep or when I'm alone. So I actually got told by a therapist that I had psychosis related to my anxiety and depression. My hallucinations disappeared for some reason when I was around fourteen years old. I did start taking Lexapro then so that might be why. I'm not on Lexapro anymore but a stronger drug which doesn't seem to do much anyway. But I am terrified because I'm starting to see things again at seventeen years old...and that's how my original hallucinations started, with the visual ones. It's kind of intense although they disappear as soon as I look directly at them. So I only see them out of the corner of my eye. They're dark (black or gray) figures...sometimes they're light (white) too. Sometimes it's like a full body standing in my room and sometimes it just looks like I can see a person's head or face. I think I've also seen a hand but that's just my interpretation. I've also seen black shapes running across the floor. I thought they might be mice or cockroaches, like real living animals but I look and they disappear. I am under a lot of stress...I only really noticed because I have a lot of acne right now and I only break out when I'm under stress or on my period (and it's not that lol). And I am really tired, I don't know why because I'm trying to get to bed earlier but it doesn't help. I have lost basically all of my friends...I've just started at TAFE, I have my job now and I'm struggling to keep my long distance relationship together so that is a lot of stress. I feel like I don't have any time for myself or to do anything but work, work, work. That is bringing me down a bit because I feel like my life doesn't have any real purpose outside of working. I feel like I really need help ASAP because I feel like I'm going insane...I guess the logical (maybe?) thing to do would be to get put on different medication but I don't want to do that. Last time I had to switch meds, I got sick where I constantly felt like I was going to vomit or pass out. I also got very emotional during the transitional period so I'd prefer not going through all that again. Is there anything I can do to get rid of hallucinations? I used to have one of those Himalayan salt lamps which I kept on just because the dark makes the hallucinations worse...but I had to throw that away because it was melting. And it's kind of weird but I used to listen to ASMR because if someone was talking to me it would distract my mind. But that's only ways to deal with the hallucinations, not get rid of them entirely. Is there any way to just make them disappear?
