Auditory Hallucinations - What can you tell me?


#41

@Hereandhere, I don’t think he is having auditory hallucinations. I had something of a breakdown (tried so hard not to) related to the guilt and pain I feel and who he was trying to make me feel better, I told him it would be nice if he could talk to me about what he was experiencing and he had an explanation for everything: the covered mirrors (he feels ugly), the mirror on the table outside (was his sisters, she puts make-up on outside), the grimacing (just when he is not comfortable with the conversation), for EVERYTHING he had a logical explanation.

I am so confused. However, he IS delusional, but it centers around these outdoor sports that he does. Very distorted associations, but with a based reality.

DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?

My daughter will cringe or body tense. Use to think it might be voices as well. She finally told me it is when she is uncomfortable with conversation topic. Usually happens if somebody makes a sexual innuendo, if for any reason it might ring true to something the Voices have told her that she’s afraid, etc. So yes your comment doesn’t make sense and has it very similar context to let my daughter has told me

Yes it makes sense. Sorry previous post had auto correct

Since my daughters last medication adjustment her voices are gone but she still has delusional thoughts I am told that Sz also live in the delusion. Which she herself admits to me when we talk her perception of intentions and what is happening around her seems very much to be partially reality-based with her delusions impacting her perception of things that happen . To me this does make total sense. I’m having a very hard time explaining this for someone else to understand but if you’re having delusions of course it would impact your perception of life I do find pieces of paper or she will write down a delusion or false belief and then she’s reasoning through it trying to make sense of it she’s very methodical and her thought process trying to figure out what is real and what isn’t and in the end comes up with a combination of the two.

Yes, this makes sense because psychosis has its own logic. I hope you are doing alright and able to rest a little and do what you need to to feel more grounded and settled.

Hi. My daughter did not make it to rehab. They were having a hard time finding her a place and before they could, she decided she didn’t want to go. She came home on Tues. and is already back to where she was. My daughter has schizoaffective disorder, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, ADD, bipolar-manic, and the drug DXM makes her have dissociative personality disorder plus severe drug addiction.This has been going on for 12 years and just got this bad the past 3 years (she’s 30). Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am so happy for your son’s improvement. I like to hear happy endings because I still have hope for my daughter.

He told me that a guy he was in the hospital with (twice they managed to be in at the same time) who he is still in contact with, told him that if he claimed he heard voices, then he could get money. He is delusional, there is no doubt about that, but as I spend more time with him, I am starting to think the voices aren’t there! He can be VERY manipulative when he wants to be. So confused…


#48

Oh… that’s a whole other facet. (Most of the people I know who hear voices never ever say we do. Mine are gone, so it’s okay.)

I hope the situation with your daughter is better now. I’ve just now got back to some of the topics and saw your responses. I can really really relate to what you’re experiencing. It’s not as bad for me now that she has her own place. Sometimes she calls me all day long. ’ Most of the time I answer, but sometimes I just listen to her message to see if it is an emergency. She rarely wakes me up in the middle of the night unless she doesn’t realize the time. Sleep for us is as important as for them to help us be able to help them. I’ve read that irregular sleep can result in mental illness. I pray you’re doing better.
