how to tell the difference between hullicinations and real life? - January 5th 2013, 04:18 AM

I find it hard to tell the difference between hullicinations and real life. When I was 13 or 14 I was diagnosed with PTSD and have had counselling since then and medications that change every couple of months. Recently I had a scary experience but the guy who done it to me tried to pass it up as a hullcination and I know that if I tell my family so will they. It happened about two-three weeks ago is there any way I can prove it wasn't a hullicination?

Proving whether it was or wasn't could be difficult. That being said, its not unheard of for some people with PTSD to have hallucinations associated with their trauma. Since it was only a one-time thing, perhaps tell your counselor you *may* have seen the person but don't know if your mind was playing tricks on you.

Nobody is going to assume you're "crazy", nor that you need to be locked away, if that's your fear. Especially since typically, one hallucination (and in this case, possibly not even a hallucination) isn't enough for a professional to send you to a psych ward.

Dare to be Different, to be Weird, to be a Freak.
Overall, Dare to be yourself.

Sometimes people will surprise you and react differently than we think. If you aren't absolutly sure they will believe you than maybe give it a try.
If you are sure talking with your parents are out and are talking with a counselor thats who I would go to. They usually will be more willing to understand. If you are positive it was really him and want to talk about it make sure you say I know the difference between real life and them and its bothering you. If you aren't sure maybe they can help you decide whether it is or isn't a hallucination. If you feel you are in danger I would let them know you feel that way also.
