It can also be the type of cananbis you smoke , some of the newer varieties (bin arounf a few years as opposed to a a few thousand) are not good for anyone , the dont contain the right mixed of active componates to help you stay steady whilst on it ...

Mine was when I was about 6, and being fed sleeping pills by my mother .. they did not always get me to sleep and I would have halucinasions ,... the first one I remember that realy terified me was seeing animals eyes , extra large in the darkness , staring at me and moving around ....

... strangely , even at that age I was more afraid of my mother and what she would do to me if I made a sound than what I saw ... :(

actually now i think about it i was pretty damn mad during childhood that kinda irrational fear and terror i kinda eased out of it as i got older more confident stronger, i mean i am diagnosed with ocd but i never opened up about it till i broke down in front of a friend after a drug binge and as fate would have it he happened to have ocd and he said what i was going through was ocd i surrpose at that point i shoulda sought help but i continued to self medicate with cannabis and then some ocd/psychosis hybrid occured and ive been getting worse since then...of course the ocd could have been premodal schizophrenia
but i had really bad compulsions like praying counting i think they call it pure O
who knows with this maddness thing i never suspected anything like psychosis
but like bob says when i started on this nutty skunk stuff thats got like 0% cbd which is the natural antipsychotic in cannabis and like 10-15% thc thats when things went "mad" and now im hearing voices i donno where the fuck i went wrong really...having said that ive started taking a niacin supplement seems to be doing some good...i know i come accross as sane but trust me im mad as a hatter.

Anxiety started when I was 11. I saw aliens and mosters when I was 12, circling around the ceiling of my room, and attacking my family. That was one of the scariest things. Then the moodswings started when I was 13, and the voices came when I was 14.

They still don't know for sure whats wrong, but they think it might be bipolar with psychotic features :(
