Hypnosis

When I was in High School, we had a senior all night party with a hypnotist, and other activities. I was very curious to see if hypnosis really worked, so when I moved in with Bobby(my ex-boyfriend in 1991), we were smoking some pot, and I asked him to hypnotise me. So he did. I thought he was going to just make me do things in the moment, but it has affected my whole life. There is not a section on how someone screwed you up through hypnosis, so I'm putting it here. After two years of being aware that the hypnosis was happening, I developed schizophrenia anyway, but it happens from a brain injury, and the hypnosis was mine. I really want to talk about the hypnosis, but when I told my family they had already judged the situation, and would never let me speak about it. I've tried to tell others but the same thing always happens. I would really like a chance to tell my side, I'm hoping I can do this here.

Not getting any response is making me want to leave. I may have to. The one thing I need help with, no one responds to. I guess I'm not surprised, it's the same thing my family did. If I stay, I will be a hypocrite. I can't stand that my family did that to me. Everyone here has problems too, so I do not blame anyone here. It's my problem.

Hello CMCindy07, this is not really my area of knowledge. But I would like it if you could explain what's been going on that you have been able to prove is the residual effect of Hypnotism. I'm guessing odd behaviours and situations that trigger you. Is Bobby still around so that you can be set free? Or have you tried asking a professional hypnotist about what can be done?

No, I would never want to see him again. He hypnotised me to do a list of things that went on for about 15 minutes. Some of the things he said was: "hold your breath, when you like a song on the radio", stupid one but "walk like a penguin", "always tell the truth", "if you think someone's lying hiss at them" it goes on and on. I wrote everything I can remember on my FaceBook page, but it happened so long ago that I can't remember everything. I don't know if people just don't see it, but I feel it.

I can imagine your hardship. I think it might be a good idea to look up a professional hypnotist and they may be able to give you advice on what to do. I have a feeling that the person who hypnotized you would have set up the hypnotic cues and they may differ from hypnotist to hypnotist. I hope that it doesn't require the same person who did the hypnosis tho. May I ask if you had any mental illness before you were hypnotized?

No, I've never had any mental illness before that. I forgot to tell you before that a therapist tried to hypnotised me again, and it didn't work.

Thanks CMCindy07, did the therapist give a reason as to why they were not able to hypnotize you?

No, but maybe it was because it was in the hypnosis that no one could hypnotised me again. Maybe it's just because I believe it. Believe me, I wanted it to go away when she tried it.

I think you may be right. Something that stands out to me is that you know some of the cues. Does that mean you were fully aware or awake when he gave you the suggestions?

Yes. Thanks So Much for talking to me about this. I really appreciate it. I just wish you could tell me that you can see the TV and Radio speaking about it. You one of the very few, that even would touch this subject with me. Thanks.

I'm sorry its been so difficult for you. It must feel daunting at times and perhaps there is some anticipatory anxiety every time you face a situation that has potential to be triggering?

CMCindy - I have only just seen this thread, I am sorry. I do wonder if the hypnosis just opened you up to what was there already but triggered a powerful reaction. I have read that respectable hypnotists screen people very carefully before doing it and that rarely it can have a negative effect.

However, I also think that he was abusive and cruel to you and that was not good for you at all. I would suggest that you try to find a way to work on the problems you have now and perhaps not dwell on this incident too much. I know that might sound like I don't understand but I am trying. You clearly need a lot of support. Have you been able to discuss this with the psych professionals at all? I know they can be varied in help, but there are some good ones out there.

Again, apologies for only just seeing this thread. Sorry I couldn't be more help. :hug5:
