Doing fine... Just bored as of late. I don't know why. Just nothing to do I suppose.

Sad. And bad voices right now. Not as bad as sometimes, though.

I tried to get quiet mentally for a meditation and then I heard my non-sensical voice humming. I'm very stressed.

Unhappy Re: Schizoaffective check in thread #2

I was recently diagnosed and my life has kind of been falling a part. I didn't realize certain things were hallucinations and now I'm second guessing everything around me. I feel like its the stress from all the testing and the diagnosis making everything worse but I can't help it. I'm scared to leave my apartment without my best friend. I've been on lamotrigine for about five weeks and start abilify today. what else can I do? I'm waiting for a few therapists to email me back but i feel like people around me just aren't getting what I'm saying.

@Myrapoda364 welcome to MSF - My Support Forums.
I am sorry you are suffering from hallucinations. That must be kind of scary and or unsettling. I hope you find it comforting to have the friendship of people on MSF. I am so happy you joined.

There are many other causes for hallucinations bsides mental illness although that is a predominant one. Have you talked to your doctor to get a medical check up to see if you may have physical conditions that may cause hallucinations?

For example, there are people I know with Parkinsons who experience hallucinations as side affects. I am not implying you have that affliction but I give it just as an example. Check with a doctor if you want to eliminate the possibility you may have some physical ailment.

I hope to hear from you on the forums and you get the support you are looking for. @CANDC

I'm still very new to my diagnosis. we are running through different possibilities. I don't necessarily know what causes them but I have them nonetheless. and I need to build trust in my own world again. That's step one.

Hi @Myrapoda364 It is often disconcerting to have hallucinations and things, at least for me. I was trying to explain to my therapist the other day why I felt alarmed when I had some audio hallucinations. She's like how long have you had hallucinations. I was like 24 years. She was like, why then were you alarmed? I was like because I was scared. They were scary to me. Sigh. It is hard sometimes to feel understood. Welcome to the forums. Post as much as you want. Hugs if wanted, Kit

I know of some virtual support groups for people who hear voices. Let me know if you want the links.

I just didn't expect to be told they were hallucinations.. I've been a horror fanatic all my life and then to put two and two together and figure out horror and the occult is a trigger is just terrible. thank for understanding.

Well, I am doing more than okay! I feel like this is such a good time for me emotionally. I feel like I'm all aboard the good feelings train much of the time. There may have been a small sadness mood swing one day, but other than that, I feel right emotionally. I have a small worrisome ponderment sometimes about if I even enjoy my smartphone. I wonder if it's all what it's cracked up to be because I certainly do not exactly enjoy it. It's borderline obsessive. I worry about it and if I have the right apps on there much of the time. It seems like I want it very simple and if I could do it all over, I would. Worrisome-ness over that is just about it. I've given up my worrisome-ness about makeup and beauty. My sister helped with that! And I'll have to make a heartfelt thanks to her.
