Hallucinations that are new to me


#1

Hello friends,

I’ve been having new types of hallucinations lately. I have never had these before- or I don’t remember if I ever had these new hallucinations.

I’m starting to hallucinate when I’m closing my eyes, seeing shapes of people, figures, etc. I’m also smelling weird smells that I don’t know where they are coming from. I’ve looked everywhere to find the source, but I couldn’t find it.

These hallucinations are not as severe as the auditory/visual ones for me, but they are distressing enough.

Does anyone else experience this?

Sending you all love.

I live in building and air from inside building is going through my house to windows.I sense a different things,and it’s like I’m hallucinating.But also for me is hard period this month,I hear a lot of voices,feeling someone controling my moves and today voices I heard had voices of the people I know etc.You are not alone in this,but we must cope.Love for you.

Yeah I have these hallucinations too when I close my eyes I see skulls and ghastly images. But I don’t have olfactory ones like you do.

It’s actually normal to see images with your eyes closed when you’re exhausted and going to sleep


#5

Yes, I’ve had these. They are hallucinations like any other. See your pdoc about them.

I have the same.
When I close my eyes, I usually see vivid and complex images and movies. As if directed by professional director.

I’ve had olfactory hallucinations before. I smelt a very foul odour in my bedroom but my partner couldn’t smell anything. It truly was disgusting, made it hard to fall asleep that night.

Hey there. I get those, sometimes. It’s scary because you can’t get away from them. It’ll get better. Keep trying.
