#1 is to listen to her. NEVER challenge her by saying things like “maybe they just your thoughts” or question her honesty because i’ve had that happen to me and it feels awful.
Let her know that finding help is a strength and there is help available. Educating yourself is always good too. Stay calm if she is having an episode, also staying honest is a must. Don’t feel offended if all of a sudden she is unable to trust you, that is part of the illness, but if you are able to continually support her this will probably not happen. Doing small favors for her is nice too, like maybe buying some of her favorite candy for her if she is having a bad day. In all of this, don’t forget to take care of yourself!
This link is very helpful and easy to read. Good luck to you and her.
Personally I do not but anyone else???
I love that movie but yeah don’t watch it if you’re easily triggered by movies!
I believe you are talking about tactile hallucinations, if you’re not i apologize for the misunderstanding. A vey common tactile hallucination is feeling like bugs are crawling all over your body or biting you. It can also feel like someone is tapping your back. I’ve heard about a few people with tactile hallucinations that present themselves as a sickness but don’t assume it’s a hallucination if it feels serious.
Hope this helped.
"When I was 13 I listened to loud metal to fall asleep so I couldn’t hear the voices screaming inside my head. Even today, as a medicated person who doesn’t hear them anymore, I can’t fall asleep without listening to music. Classical, nowadays :)"

it’s a giant pain because i believe in ghosts + wouldn’t mind it if it were one of our old pets„„,
That is probably Hypnagogia. Everyone experiences it, so you’re all good. It is the transition between being awake and falling asleep, when our mind is experiencing delta waves things tend to happen. Your brain can mix up your dreams with reality, which is why people commonly experience hallucinations when they first wake up or are drifting off to sleep.
Nothing to worry about, take care :)
