Ya. They seem like real people. I didn’t hallucinate when I first got diagnosed. I just had delusions and negative symptoms.
Then I quit taking my APs and that’s when I started to hallucinate.
It took me about 5 days off of APs to figure it out. I caught on when I saw the little girl come through the wall and a chair but it was a scary few days leading up to that.
I religiously take my meds now. Hallucinating scares me but it still happens from time to time if I forget to take my meds in the morning.
