Any advice on whether it sounds like psychosis?

Posted , 4 users are following.

First of all it’s not my intention to offend anyone with this so I’m really sorry if it does!

I have intrusive thoughts OCD and one of the common themes is developing psychosis, which in all honesty scares me as I’m worried it would mean having to give up my job. Basically my anxiety is through the roof at the minute with awful themes but now I’m worried I’m hallucinating. Basically I thought I saw my cat slip off the sofa out of the corner of my eye and didn’t think anything of it until I realised she was still under the blanket. I suppose it could have been my other cat and my eyes playing tricks on me thinking it was off the sofa rather than just on the floor by the sofa but I’m not convinced. Does this sound like a hallucination? Should I be worried? 

Thanks advice would be amazing! On the waiting list for CBT rolleyes

    Hi not that I will be much help but i see things that are not there often, spiders crawling across the table, mice or a shadow moving across the floor. Hear voices and noises at night i have even woken up seeing two people in my bedroom looking out the window chatting when i told them to get on with their business they disappeared. So if this is psychosis I'm buggered but the psychiatrist doesn't seem that bothered when I have told her of these things so I shouldn't worry too much. 

    Good luck with the CBT when you get it.

      Hi amy 

      sorry for the time in replying been having a bit of a melt down, I suffer from anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder and emotional unstable personality disorder, just got an appointment through for a 121 assessment to see if I am accepted for further therapy been waiting 9 months for.

      sorry you didn't get much joy when contacting the people who provide the cbt service. Persevere you will get there.

    I have the same problem, although it does not mean you have a Psychosis. You mention you are waiting for a curse of CBT, See how you get on with that it may be an Anxiety

    If you are having auditory and visual hallucinations then it would appear that you are having some kind of psychosis.  I would speak to your GP to see if you can expedite your appointment.
