Hi Rosie,

It's great to meet you. I am glad you checked in.

It is hard to say what might be causing your delusions or hallucinations. Your feelings of depression and anxiety may be related to various causes, including events going on in your life that are overwhelming you emotional, your brain chemistry, or a combination of factors.

Only a mental health professional can make this determination.

Sitting down with a mental health professional could help you a lot. A professional can talk to you about how you're feeling, and explore what's going in your life, how you're feeling, how you're thinking. A professional would then suggest a potential diagnosis and talk to you about the way forward.

You have taken the first step by identifying your concerns. That is a great start. The next step is to reach out for help.

Here is a link to an article I wrote awhile back about getting connected with a mental health professional:

Again, I am really glad you checked in. And I am concerned about you. I really encourage you to reach out for professional help. If you aren't sure where to start, you might even ask your regular doctor for a recommendation. What you are experiencing is treatable.

Don't go through this alone, my friend. Take really good care of yourself.

Gary
