Hallucinations suck.
Possible trigger:
. I'm not sure if it is because I haven't SH-ed so the hallucinations are coming up, or if it is a demon trying to persuade me to SH, but anyway, it's getting to me.

For how long, and how often, have you been having them?

I get visual hallucinations all the time...maybe 5 days out of the week. The things I see vary, but these specific ones I've been having the past couple of days. I saw my Pdoc last night who wasn't too concerned about them. He's more concerned about auditory hallucinations which I get less of. I don't see my T until April 15 so I just gotta deal with them as best as I can. Thanks for caring. Hugs Kit

Actually acknowledging them helps. It sort of takes some of the power away from them. Reality testing. Doing something comforting or soothing. Changing my environment--like going for a walk if the hallucinations are on the walls. Journaling about them. Talking it through with my T but I won't see her until April 15. Praying. Getting distracted by something else that requires a lot of concentration like a puzzle or something. Making myself use the five senses (or several of them) to pay attention to my surroundings that I know are real. Things like that. So I do have some tools to combat them.

I was supposed to see my therapist today but she had a family emergency and had to cancel. I haven't seen her since March 18th and now I'm not going to see her until May 6th. I want to SH right now. My emotions are all over the place and I want to cry. She had been pushing me last time to extend out my not SH-ing even after Lent. But now that I'm not going to see her until after that, I'm worried I'm going to relapse and I'm going to relapse spectacularly. I hadn't decided if I was going to push out my date of not SH-ing but now it's that much harder to. Kit

Oh dear that is unfortunate, no chance to see her until May 6th.

(((((Kit))))))

Maybe journaling or calling a listening line or using something online like 7 Cups could help?
