    What do you see?

    A lot of the talk on this board seems to be about hearing voices, but what about your experiences with visual hallucinations? Personally, I see a tall monolith made out of LCD screens with flowers for eyes. And a black figure with a white rectangle for a face. And a small boy with no eyes. I...

    Am I insane? ** may trigger**

    I think I'm going insane and I'm not sure what to do. I've been an insomniac for the passed 6 years when everything started. I get two hours of sleep give or take every three days.

    Visions?

    I sometimes have visions, usually when I am sleeping. They often make no sense, however the other day I had a vision of my bicycle rear light. Made no sense! However I checked my bicycle and the rear light had run out of batteries - I must have left it on. I wouldn't have checked it otherwise...

    Coping with visions

    How do people here cope with what I call visions? Now, I still have some views that would be interpreted by psychiatrists as delusional, but whenever I get visions, I clutch the Cross of Saint Benedict around my neck, and pray to God, in the name of Christ, to end it, or, if I am really...
