I heard one thing that freaked me out. It said that people with Shizophrenia see faces. Well, I did a lot of LSD, and I know that when I was high on it, I saw faces in trees and walls and stuff. But I knew for a fact they were just dostortions caused by the drug. It was just something trippy. Even now, after 12 years of being clean, I still see faces and stuff from time to time. Also, I know some people that trip on acid flat out see shit that isnt there, not distortions, but actual objects that don't exist. I know you dropped acid soulbro, what was your high like? Do you experience any lasting side effects? If so, what are they? Do you see faces in things?

Do you mean literally seeing faces or seeing what looks like a face in the pattern of the bark. We can all see faces if we look hard enough. My kids do this all the time, it's like seeing a shape in the clouds or in the marble floor. Which kind do you mean? Hope this isn't a dumb question.

I was troubled by that kind of "seeing things" for years. Just horrifying. And they were always gruesome images, violent images or scary faces. Things that made me feel nuts and made my anxiety go through the roof.
It's caused by an overactive self-monitoring and a kind of "alert" stance...when anxious we are so afraid of being surprised that we end up "creating" or seeing disturbing things because we're LOOKING for them in an attempt to prevent being startled.
