    Or just see things in the corner of your eyes etc...

    I often see things, not vividly, but for example at about 5:36am this morning I was in my living room when I see this large, grey, humanoid figure in the corner of my eye, as soon as I looked directly at where I'd thought I'd saw whatever it was, there was nothing there...

    Another example, is that a couple of times tonight I've seen a slice of bread on my desk next to me, but when I look properly at where it was there's nothing there...

    So yeah, anyone else get this? If so, what do you see?
    Yes.
    Hallucinations are a part of my life and have been since I was very young ( as long as I can remember). I only really knew that what was happening wasn't normal about three years ago though - I went until I was thirteen thinking that it happened to everyone.
    I think a reoccurring traumatic experience triggered them when I was young, and since then whenever I have been hugely anxious or stressed my anxiety is something I can see.
    The kind of things which are still happening regularly are:
    -the floor moving like a balloon inflating (rising into a sphere shape and then back down)
    -huge shadows / auditory things
    -a person who is hidden by himself. It's like trying to look at something in a dream, whenever I look my brain shuts off and I can't focus on what I'm seeing - I just know I am scared.

    I ffailed all my mocks as I happened to have a very bad week for this during them. It hurt a bit.

    As an afternote, I live a really happy and positive life most of the time and since I have been out of hospital I never let anything get in the way of what I want to do. It might hold me back temporarily - but it wont stop me.

    What it's like taking psychedelics?

    Also, how did you drink 10 can of Redbull? I get really bad stomach ache from just a couple of cans of that stuff...

    It does not feel like 10 cans of redbull lmao. It's very strange; it may seem a very cool idea but don't underestimate them at all. I underestimated them and now am suffering from anxiety due to my stupidity.

    Damn, that sounds terrifying, I get scared hearing the floor boards creek... Not sure how I'd deal with proper hallucinations, It's great your still able to enjoy your life though despite this.

    Really? From what I've heard your generally fine as long as you aren't anxious before hand and your with a group of people you trust...

    I do too.

    I sometimes see a black cat moving around (which freaks me out a little) and sometimes I see a ruler next to me but there isn't one.

    They're only split-second hallucinations though.

    How do you know that everything your seeing right now isn't just a hallucination?

    I think I just hallucinated, I thought it was a fly but I realised it was just my eyes seeing random dots....

    Now I've scared myself into going to bed.

    I do really struggle when they get bad, but it seems to happen in clusters. I'll have a bad couple weeks, and then feel better, so it's manageable.
    I kind of get jumpy at non scary stuff like doors slamming and floorboards too though - you're not alone

    I wish it was as simple as that man - telling yourself to be fine seems to make bad thoughts occur - Boy it ****ing works though ahaha, and it's better than people make it out to be (trust me) you just need to be 100 percent sure that you wish to really experience it and plus it's 12 hours which is a hell of a long time

    Fair enough, I've just always thought it would be an interesting thing to experience, and from what I've heard and read, it's a relatively safe drug.

    That's weird, I always see cats too, not a specific color every time but like, traditional cat colors, not radioactive purple cats,which would be way cooler...

    Floorboards are the worst, I think I'm going to dress up as a floorboard next Halloween...

    My best friend had a bad reaction to one of those immunity injections and had a hallucination that there was someone in the back of her sock drawer pulling and snatching the socks away from her (when she was trying to get socks out of her drawer), when in reality they were just caught on something lol
