Psychosis

11 posts in this topic

How psychotic has this made you guys feel? Anyone out there with genuine hallucinations (not just warping)/hearing voices? Do antipsychotics help you in those instances?

I've never had true hallucinations but my mental imagery could be considered internal hallucinations or CEVs gone wild I guess. I've never ended up in a psychotic state (lost touch with reality). Abilify was mildly helpful.

hppd + weed makes me psychotic, but hppd itself doesn't, thankfully.

I know a few people with drug related psychosis and the conditions are very different.

It took me a little bit to understand the difference between dissociation and psychosis. A lot of people with dissociation are afraid they have psychosis or are developing it. But that's almost always never the case.

No psychosis here.  I do have what I would call "genuine" hallucinations.  Patterns and designs are everywhere, most of the time.  As I've mentioned before, anything with a texture or fine grain (like a road surface or a carpet) shifts and transforms into designs, shapes, animals, etc..  The only time I get auditory hallucinations is when I consume MJ (a very very rare event these days).  

For what it's worth.

Cheers guys.

It's often worried me, especially since 1) my case is degenerative and 2) I happened to ingest some (passive!) weed smoke a month ago that appears to have sent things into overdrive somewhat.

For me it's mostly a feeling of seeing faces/personality in things - like car headlights feeling like eyes, or everyday objects having a feeling of life/personality about them - even though they don't *look* any different to me. As though they might start sprouting limbs and dancing about - like in a Disney film or something. Don't know if anyone can relate, haha...

Jay - you mean people that are permanently psychotic following drugs? E.g. schizophrenic? I guess when all's said and done we can at least be grateful we're still (mostly!) sane...

Yea, mainly from mdma... I know 3 people who have been in and out of pysch wards for 20+ years because of that drug.

Fascinating. Wouldn't have thought of it as a hallucinogen, or a drug that has negative psychiatric effects (versus weed/lsd anyway) but then it's the drug that got me where I am. You have also mentioned it was Mandy that made your hppd permanently much worse.....Do you still have any *really* freaky visual stuff going on? I know you've spoken about 3D cogs before.....

MDMA is structurally similar to meth and mescaline. MDMA was basically synthesized with that in mind - combine a powerful stimulant with a psychedelic.

Hmm, I see. Well isn't that just great, ha! Interesting that you found an antipsychotic helpful, mythos. You just took it short-term then?

13 months. It didnt help the perceptual stuff but it reduced some of the imagery. To be honest it didn't help that much and probably caused akithisia and other problems.
