do you know what triggered it?

i have experienced one and it was well, insane...i was delusional and i was hallucinating...
i couldn't figure out how to get out of my bedroom.

it's the only time it ever happened to me and i don't really know what set it off.

just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this...

Twice, in my case both times it was as a result of severe sleep deprivation.

7 times - of around 3 months duration each time.

What I think caused it - part spiritual emergency, part trauma, part illicit drug use.

& very much from the perspective of an ego collapse, an overwhelming of the conscious mind by the content of the Unconscious - & an entering into the World of the Symbolic. :)

Yes, I remember mine quite well. The delusions did not impact me significantly in my ability to relate to the outside world, so to speak. But I had moments where my short term memory had gone on vacation, and that urged me to seek help.
