Yes. I love animals too. I have 2 cats and 2 kittens and they are really cute. Do you have any pets?

Goodness. "2 cats and 2 kittens"

I'm not allowed pets in my flat. I don't at all, mind that.

I held in my arms a Koala Bear when I lived in Australia. At a park for them.

I understand. It's nice that you have held a koala in your arms. Koalas are one of my favorite animals, I even have a stuffed animal koala. I have never held a koala before though, and I really want too.

That's good. I can't imagine how that must have been to experience that.

They caused no threat to me. It was interesting. Back to childhood, I guess. I had a teddy bear too, that used to sleep in my bed when I wasn't there. Hallucinations.

That is good that it didn't cause no threat. I remember someone a year ago that told me that sometimes hallucinations can be scary.

...Hallucinations.
I was wrong in that post. It wasn't hallucinations. More like internal visions.

I've never had a scary hallucination.

In my first hallucination: I saw a halo around the head of a female friend of the woman I first fell in love with. That shot me to God.

Yes it is. The friend was carrying her baby. No doubt you can see the religious reference.

I had made a vow as a seventeen year old, that I would go into schizophrenia and find out what it was about.

I travelled to Australia seven years later.

Whilst in Australia I was committed to my first hospitalization in a Psychiatric Hospital and made a ward of the State of NSW.
