As the title read, my 4 year old son Hallucinates, and it's normal... he has had this since he was 2 years old and got a hold of my aunts adoral, a 50MG pill, and was hospitalized for 3 days straight, screaming the entire time, he never stopped, and even with all the sedation they gave him it wasn't enough, they couldn't get him to sleep. He almost died, and I was pregnant with my other son at the time. When he finally "recovered" it was noted that he was going to affect him his entire life. He hallucinated the entire time he was there, we couldn't even get close because he thought we were giant dinosaurs and spiders and monsters(im being extremely serious...) so i couldnt even hold my baby when he was going thru this. It took them 6 hours to get an IV in him and he was screaming the entire time and they had to have 4 nurses holding my 2 year old son down while they tried and tried and tried again to get an IV in him saying "it's just not working, his veins are too small, lets try a different spot"... and the entire time i was a miserable wreck... thank god my mother and husband were there. 6 HOURS! with blood everywhere from them trying to get an IV in him and putting him in so much pain and when they FINALLY got one in they accidently ripped it back out... it was horrible... even the pediatrics department they contacted hours in, couldn't do any better. But finally after 6 hours they got one to stick and be good... he was in the emergency room for roughly 12 hours before moving him into ICU, he never even got near pediatrics... they still had a pediatrician seeing him but they were struggling to care for him the entire time... they had pumped enough medication in him to knock out an adult(so they said) and he still wouldnt sleep... after 3 days he calmed down and the last day he was just there to be observed and we had the option to stay one more day "just in case" but we just wanted to be home and in our own beds... he recovered fine but his Doctor said he would never fully recover from it and that the likely hood of him hallucinating like he did the entire time he was in there was very good...

well two years later(we had almost no issues), he's sleep walking every night, he hallucinates, sometimes even during the day, and it's just normal for us now.... he sees dinosaurs in his room at night and even during the day and will refuse to be in his room during those times, so he stays by us(his parents). He has constant nightmares and is up every hour because he's sleep walking. And even if i'm SURE he's awake I can't tell because he hallucinates and points things out in the house that makes no sense.... He even does the sleep walking thing to try and find the bathroom and ends up peeing in a random spot in the house, sometimes he's still got his pants on...

There's nothing the Doctors can do about it, it's "normal" for him now but as loveable and sweet my little boy is, he will never be "normal" completely... It doesn't feel like he any different then our other son who has no issues, but just in the past few weeks it's gotten much much worse....

Basically why i'm here is not just to tell my story(i haven't talked about it much since it happened), but because his hallucinations get so bad sometimes he needs to sleep in bed with me and daddy, which is fine and understandable, but i just wish there was something i could do to help at least calm him down....

What we've done so far, is that he has this anime kitty hat we got at an anime convention from sailor moon he just LOVES, so we got it for him and we tried to get him believe he was safe when he wore this "magic hat" which worked the first night, but not since... though now he never takes it off unless he's in class at school or in the bathtub.

On his own just 3 days ago he's attached himself to a giant toy dinosaur almost as big as him, and he calls it his "good dinosaur", saying it protects him from the bad ones. Which has been working perfect! He takes it EVERYWHERE with him, and he even started putting little hats on his dinosaur too, just like him, and yesterday he wouldn't eat all of his supper because he "was saving it for his dinosaur" so we now have him believing his toy dinosaur eats these little red wooden blocks, and it worked, he's now eating all of his food again. He has to buckle his dinosaur up in the car just like him and his brother, and it literally CAN NOT leave his side.

I'm happy my son has a comfort item(he also has his hat and his little frog blanket he sleeps with every night, he's had it since birth), but is there anything else i can do to help my son?? Is having him believe his toys protect him from his hallucinations setting him up for failure?

He doesn't even understand what he's seeing isn't real... i can barely get him to understand a disney character dieing in a movie isnt real... so we have to closely monitor what he watches and plays (he also plays kid styled video games, like his leap pad).

Any idea? Suggestion? Anything to help make him feel safe... The Doctors say there's nothing i can do, and it's gotten worse lately, and it's to the point where i can't let him do sleep overs and anyone else's house besides our own, because we fear their house isn't safe enough for him... =/

Dear Paige,
What you share is horrific, it blows my mind, I dont wish your situation on anyone. You may not agree to, ormight even get upset for, what I will advise you, but I am begging you to give it a try. You need to "clean your house" in a spiritual way. We often have things in our home which have occultic/evil/negative effects on us or our loved ones. If you have not met Jesus yet, then you would not understand these things, then perhaps it would be time you have a conviction and a change of life style. There is a man in South Africa, I met him but unfortunately forgot his name, who went around giving talks on "cleaning your house" ("Maak jou huis skoon", in Afrikaans), maybe you can google this and find more. We "cleaned our house", and a LOT of things changed for the positive. Some of the things I can remember you shoud rid your home off: Spiderman/Superman/Batman stuff, e.g. including EVERYTHING like dolls, pictures,books,bedding etc, rlating to those, no matter how small. Stufflike/or similar to Ninja turtles. Barbie. Stuff that has to do with Harry Potter. Wind chimes. Fairy stuff, persian carpets, various masks or ornaments especially african or oriental, certain music, pornography, anything regarding e.g. Yoga, karate, any oriental sport or meditation means, astrology, tattoos, chess, the usual card games (Joker, King, Queen, etc-those cards), eyeliner, ugh, there is soooo much more, but its late evening and I am probably too tired to think deep now, lol. Most of the things I mentioned have occultic roots, they seem so innocent, but its because we are not aware of their roots, thus we are not aware of the negative influence they have on our life. this is not a joke, this is real stuff, satan and his demonic warriors are a reality, and I PROMISE you with my whole heart, that once you give your heart to Jesus and change a few things in your life, your son will heal COMPLETELY - I believe this with my whole heart. I really hope that you will give it a try. Gather any possible things you may have of the above, burn it, and never allow yourself again to be influenced or manipulated into buying them again, EVER! And teach your children in the ways of the Lord Jesus, you will find it AMAZING how great your life will be. I am a mother of 6 kids, 28, 22, 14, 9, 6 and 21 months, I was a drug addict and prostitute, I only met Jesus in 1999, but today I cannot imagine being a good mother or having healthy normal children without Him and his ways and his truth. Blessings. Sonja

Please send me a mail to sonjadutoitisaaks777@gmail.com and I will forward you my reply. I am having problems on this sight, I am a member here, I sat now for at least 20 minutes replying to your problem, and when I wanted to send it they asked me that I only can reply if I sign up, and from there all was lost. Its such a pity, because what I had/have to say could have benefited many parents in various ways. ugh, I feel so disappointed and desperate now, having lost such a looong message. :-(
