I was wondering who else gets something like this…
I call it prolonged sensation. It’s a bit like a tactile hallucination but it comes from a real touch.
My sister was holding my hand, and then she walked away, but I was sure she was taking my hand with her since it didn’t feel like she let go. It still felt like she was holding my hand. If she hugs me, that feeling of being hugged will stay with me for a few hours. Same with other people… if they set their hand on my arm, I’ll feel it there for a few hours. Sometimes it sort of creeps me out. I can’t get that hand off me. Other times I just have to calmly let it fade.
This last holiday season the voices multiplied for a bit. But they are fading more. But it’s not new surprising voices, it’s the voices of my cousins and aunts and other family and the new voices of family are merely saying stuff that my family did in fact say when I was seeing them over this last holiday break.
It’s like the words and the voice is stuck in my head, sort of imprinted and now it’s fading away. But it doesn’t happen with family I see all the time. It’s not scary, it’s just odd having a spike in voices and the fact that it’s more like a recording.
