Hi everyone,

I’m a British woman in my 30s, and have been living with clinical depression and C-PTSD all my life, am recently diagnosed with PMDD, also recovered (mostly) from traumatic brain injury.


I was until a few years ago a neuroscience PhD student, trying to make some sense of what’s going on in my mixed up brain.

The reason I registered is because sometimes I experience what you’d call altered states of consciousness and I see, hear and experience things that aren’t there. I’m interested to learn more about people’s experience with this kind of thing to try to figure out if I’m having hallucinations or what on earth is going on.

:welcome: to the forum. Depression and PTSD can cause serious "odd" responses but I can't diagnose on a forum. I think you need to ask yourself if these experiences are upsetting you or if you can live with them. I would suggest that you see a professional to assess you and help you out more. I am impressed at you doing a PhD

Welcome to the forum. You can say whatever you like hear without fear of being judged. As calypso says ewe can't diagnose you but speak to a professional. And yeah, well done on the PhD.
