Hello. I am typing this from my mum’s place. I arrived late last night.
On the plane I started to get really intrusive sick thoughts. Thoughts about the plane crashing and some other violent things which I’d rather not mention.
Then last night as I was rtying to get to sleep, I could hear in one ear only, the ear on the pillow, the sound of water rushing through a storm water drain. Then I started getting some relly vivid horrible closed eye hallucinations.
I’ve been doind really well recently and I don’t want to take a step backwards. I’m worried that the damage I have done to my liver is making my medicine less effecive.
I also don’t want to worry too much about it because I know sress will only make it worse.
Thanks for reading.
I’m sorry you’re having to go through this… I don’t know if you’re religious but I will pray for you. I’m going through hard times too, so you’re not alone. I cant sleep right now because i’m scared to close my eyes. Everytime i do the voices start as well as the hallucinations. Like you said try not to worry too much about it! Best of luck
I’m sorry you’re going through this B. But I think it’s just stress from the trip. Sleep hallucinations are common even for neurotypicals, so I wouldn’t worry about those.
If tomorrow it continues, do you have PNR with you?
What is pnr? Is it valium? I brought that with me.
No, an extra ap for emergencies.
No I just have my normal stuff, invega and lexapro.
One day when I visit Mum I’d like to go visit my old psychiatrist from when I was staying with her through my psychosis last year.
Try to ignore the intrusive thoughts if you can. It probably can become a self reinforcing problem. The more you agonize about it, the worse it gets.
If you need to take a valium, take it.
I will thank you @Minnii. I thought it was pretty brave of me to get through without it last night. I just kept telling myself it’s there if I need it.
i hope it gits beter, can u see the doc there soon?
Thank you @mjgh06. I see my regular psychiatrist next Tuesday night.
Probably stress from the trip and seeing your mother brought on these symptoms. Don’t worry about them. “Setbacks are average.”“Setbacks aren’t dangerous.”
Wow, that really sucks turtle. Are you going to see or call a doctor about this? Maybe this is just a one-time passing thing that might not turn into a backwards step.
I will wait til Tuesday when I see my psychiatrist. Things seem to have settled down a bit since arriving. So I am not too worried about it at the moment.
Like @martinhersey1 said it could just be stress from the flight. I don’t really like flying.
Lets just hope that’s all it is.
The flight was propable stressing you out and made you have all those thoughts and hallucinations. I’d take valium on the flight home if you feel uneasy with flying.
I was flying home from Finland two years ago. I had a similar experience. I stuffed myself with 15 mg Valium, 5 mg at a time, before the voices and intrusive thoughts calmed down so I could handle them.
