Well, The Hallucinations I suffered from were not only Visual but also Tactile. Meaning, I could feel them.
Earlier this Year, I was put on Very Strong Painkillers due to Damaged Nerves since I am a Type-1 Diabetic. One of the Painkillers, Known as Tramadol, Is derived from Opium. After It was giving me Unpleasant Side Effects, My Doctor told me to stop taking them.
That was when the Hallucinations started.
I saw some Wasps on my Bathroom Window and tried to exterminate them. My Brother comes in since he wanted to help and asked me where the Wasps were. I pointed to the Window and he looked at me and said " There is Nothing there.. ".
Everywhere I began to look, I would see Yellow and Black Body Parts start to move towards each other and form a Wasp. They would climb all over me, Sting me and It was Awful. There further away they were or If they partially were hidden from my View, The Bigger they were. I would see Giant Wasps around 10 Feet Long on Walls on the other side of the Room and I would wake up feeling Large Wasps moving past my Leg during the Night. Was this the Worst of it? No.
Spiders. I began to Hallucinate Spiders. Initially, They were Docile. They would just crawl along the Walls and stay in the Corners of the Room. I thought " At least they are leaving me alone.. ". That was a Mistake. Next Dau, When I went downstairs.. I saw Giant Spiders under the Sofas.. These were Black and Oranges Tarantualas and Worst of all..They were all looking at me with their Legs Raised in a Attack Position. I began to have a Severe Panic Attack and phoned my Doctor.. Literally Yelling down the Phone as these Tarantulas began climbing all over me and Biting me. They would crawl under my Slippers and Phase through them Upside Down with their Legs clasping on my Toes and I would feel their Fangs biting me. Whenever I looked out of the Window, I would see Spiders the Size of Cars watching me as they ran around, Hiding behind Trees and Cars. They began trying to avoid my Gaze and were literally Stalking me. They were Everywhere. It went on for Days, Constantly being Stung and Bitten... I was a Mess.
Not all Hallucinations were Bad. I would look at the Walls and see Moving Pictures. I could see Small Stickmen having a Bloody War on my Table and Bed. When I was in the Hospital Waiting Room, I saw People in Funny Hats, Clown Noses etc. an d thought there was some Charity Event or Party going on. Only the Funny Outfits disappeared as People got Closer to me. There is nothing quite like seeing a Man in a Hoodie yelling Swearwords while holding a Sparkling Wand and wearing Fairy Wings on his Back. I would also see Christmas Lights while Driving around and they would even appear in TV Shows. Just Imagine a Serial Killer chasing someone while Sparkling Lights were all over thee Place and they were wearing Clown Shoes and Glowing Make Up.
I also began to experience my Vision distorting into Rainbow Colours. I was literally having a Trippy Experience.
Nowback to the Bad Hallucinations. The Wasps and Spiders wouldn't leave me Alone... It was happening so much that I guess I just got Used to them.. Weird, Right? It became more of an Annoyance. Though, Things were still going downhill. I walked into my Bedroom one Night and as I reached for the Lightswitch, I saw a Pair of Giant Mandibles reaching for my Hand. I stepped back and they slowly disappeared into the Darkness. I slowly edged into the Room and turned on the Light..
Giant Centipedes everywhere. They had the same Faces as the Spiders but unlike thee Spiders which became Smaller as they got Closer to me.. These Centipedes remained Giant. I tried to calm myself as I got into Bed.. No matter what I did to tell myself that these were not Real.. They never went away. Only at times when I blinked would these Hallucinations " Reset " as I restarted a Video. Think of the Detective Mode from Batmn: Arkham Origins where you can Rewind a Scene. One Night, I went to Bed and saw Two Large Centipedes on my Feet. They were watching me and then started.. How can I explan this.. Dancing? They began moving and weaving around my Feet. it was like a Gynastics Show from a Circus. Thankfully, They Never Bit or Hurt me. But these were not the Worst.
While returning Home from the Hospital, I experienced something Worse as I looked down at the Floor of my Car.
Tentacles. A Giant, Ugly, Black Tentacle was waving around through the Floor of my Car. I wasn't sure what It was at the time since It kept phasing up and down through the Floor. Until I got out of the Car to pick up some Quick Groceries. I saw Tentacles raising out of the Ground in many Colours and they were pressed against the Windows and sticking out between the Shelves in the Store. I began to become more and more Anxious.. As I drove Home and stpped at a Traffic Light, That Disgusting Black Tentacle gave my Foot a Huge, Wet Slap. I Jumped and had another Panic Attack.. When I arrived Home and went to take my Coat off in my Room, I saw Tentacles beginning to form under my Bed Sheets and everywhere else I looked. I took off my Jacket and forgot about a Plaser I had on my Elbow after a Blood Test. I looked at it and only saw a Wet, White Tentacle hanging off my Arm.. I was in Tears. It was becoming too much. I was already dealing with Severe Clinical Depression and Extreme Pain from Damaged Nerves as well as being Bitten and Stung by those Awful Spiders and Wasps. So Fearing I would have Tentacles sprouting all over me.. I ran downstairs in a Frenzy and tried to Overdose on Painkillers. My Family Members stopped me and called an Ambulance and I was back in Hospital again. I was seeing Tentacles rising from the Ground and Walls. They were coloured similar to the Surface they appeared on. They even appeared on my Food and in my Water Bottles. It was a Nightmare. I had to close my Eyes and Force myself to Eat.
I was admmitted into a Ward where my Doctors began to try and Isolate which of my Painkillers were causing the Hallucinations. Or If the Hallucinations were a Withdrawal Effect. I was in Hospital for a Month or so and eventually the Hallucinations stopped.. As I was discharged from the Ward, I would occasionally still see Faded Moving Pictures and Stick Men trying to kill each other but those eventually stopped.
I haven't experienced anymore Hallucinations, Thank God. That was a Horrible, Horrible Experience but also somewhat Interesting. Still, I never want to experience those again. Ever.
Well. That is my Experience.. That was quite alot to Write.
