Is it normal my mind is messed up from time in asylums

In February, I was put into a series of mental hospitals for a total of two months. 80% of my time was sitting in silence, or trying to sleep on a hard bed. I started hearing and sensing thing while I was there, and this continued until a little bit after I was released. Idk if its the meds or what, but I still feel strange, and I feel myself slipping away. Lots of bad things have been happening to me, and i feel that it is destroying my brain. IIN?

Is It Normal?

  • If the body does not receive enough input from it’s senses, they start to get really sensitive. They might become sensitive to the point where they start detecting stuff that isn’t actually there. This happened with a lot of prisoners in high security prison vaults.

    • Right, but this still affects me to this day. Seeing and hearing things has died down a lot, but idk if its the meds or just my brain making me feel how i do.

      • I’m not a psychologist, but if you “feel yourself slipping away” too much, there is a chance you have psychosis. Psychosis is not a disorder but a symptom that is most likely induced by medicine or PTSD.

  • Well sure its normal to feel off if youve been in mental hospitals there must be a reason? But yes it will make you feel abnormal and maybe ashamed. I hope you get the treatment you need. I had suicidal depression a while back definitely felt unreal a lot of the time.

  • What makes you so sure that it's just "your time in the asylums" that caused these issues? There is obviously more to the story and I'm sure it's not a simple one.

    • No, it’s really not. I just know that things got really bad while i was admitted. I did almost die from asphyxiation, so maybe i suffered brain damage or something. Idk.

  • Yes, that is normal, but keep taking your meds.

  • It's probably a mix of the underlying disorder and lack of sensory input.
