Default What's the Differecne...Or Is There one?

For the past weeks I have had the belief that a person was standing in my bedroom. He was tall with dark hair and stared straight ahead. Definitely no one I know IRL. Then another thing came and it was 100 demons...like, there was a group of 100 little demon-things in my apartment.

I did not see these things (hallucinations? Delusions?) with my actual eyes, but with my mind. My pdoc raised my Zyprexa dose and things are much calmer.


Would you say these experiences are hallucinations, delusions, or

Oh, that's interesting, MM. My pdoc called it a psychotic symptom. I suppose such things can be different from person to person.

Is this just starting for you? It reminds me of how my voices used to be just in my mind but very clearly voices and not me. Anyway they later progressed to full auditory hallucinations where I was hearing things externally.

It's not just starting for me, it just seems to have become more pronounced. And that's what concerns me...that the voices or noise in my mind will become more intense. Hopefully, meds will prevent it.
