Reading your words brings tears to my eyes as I know from my own anxiety and fears how awful I will feel and here you are with Big Fears and feeling all alone.
Hallucinations are waking sensory representations of information that does not exist. They usually involve seeing, hearing or feeling things that are not present. While it's rare for someone with anxiety to truly hallucinate, it's not rare for those with intense anxiety to have various types of mild hallucinations that can cause additional fear over your mental stability.
In many ways, intense anxiety can cause the feeling
of going crazy – as though you are losing touch with reality. Sometimes this is
nothing more than a feeling or thought. Other times this is caused by
additional anxiety symptoms such as hallucinations.
You recognize that this is not normal to experience these hallucinations and I agree with you, crazy you are not. You are not losing touch with reality.
I would like you to talk with your Dr. re these new issues. Also keep talking with us and know you are family here.
Keeping you in my prayers, Dawn.
