well you should probably tell your doctor or something, if it happens so much. it might be indicative of something larger, even if they themselves don't really bother you. it would be good to just make sure.

myself, whenever i tell a therapist they seem very dismissive. i'm not sure why. they have told me it's because of stress but i have hallucinated when i'm not under any specific stress...sometimes it's visual but more often than not it is auditory. i think that's the right word. when i go see a therapist again for possible diagnoses i will possibly bring this up, but not sure. i hope yours doesnt cause you too much stress. i think people like to romanticize this sort of thing.


I have told my doctor. I'm on antipsychotics for it. They will probably get upped again next time.

Mine don't usually happen under stress, either. In fact, they most often occur when not much is happening.

What is visual sensory seeking like?

To me it's like you crave alot of spinning lights and weird images and you also crave the weirdest visual movies!

Oh, wow. I am definitely not that! I think I am oversensitive (in general) to visual, auditory, and tactile input (though, it depends what it is) and under sensitive to smell, proprioception, and motion. I think my taste is normal.

I have sometimes had some visual distortions and hallucinatory kind of experiences but nothing to extreme, nothing to make me think much of it aside from that i had let my imagination get carried away. I have had a couple very strange experience I am sure mental health professionals would potentially try to convince me were hallucinations but they were not pretty sure these occasions consisted of spiritual entities of some kind.

Also I have taken psychedelics, mushrooms and acid to be specific but more experience with the mushrooms as I've only tripped on a low dose of acid twice. It doesn't really cause hallucinations in the sense of seeing things that are not even there at all, it more changes how things look makes colors more vibrant and its seems there are even colors you've never seen before and can cause things to look like the are moving/melting together or the effect of breathing walls where it seems they move some. I tend to get that when I haven't had enough sleep or sometimes just randomly but its not as intense as if I where tripping on psychedelics.

I wish I had hallucinations which I could control--I could use them in my creative work.

Alas, I don't. And I don't have other Aspergian/Autistic features like synesthesia.

Have you ever experienced, say, a number as having a color--Like a "2" being red?

The problem is most of them are only available to those who know people (or those who are willing to pick wild mushrooms).

Nope. I don't have synesthesia either. I have a color/number/day system, but I chose it and I don't literally see it. It's more OCD-like.

When I see colors, there are usually around people or things and often look like waves.
