Today, I was excited to see a spider skittering across my bathroom floor, because this one was real and not a hallucination. FML
Silver_Jet tells us more :
Op here. Got an account to commentnt on this. No I am not on drugs. I know this spider is real because I killed it and I am not sure if I have schizophrenia.

I don't quite see how seeing a spider would ever be a good thing...

The teachings from The Professor in Futurama taught me well...even when going to a planet whose policy for males is DEATH BY SNU-SNU it's still good news

#9 hallucinating things doesn't always mean you're on drugs. Haven't you ever been so tired and half asleep and saw "a spider crawling" on the floor/wall? The brain does some strange things sometimes. Lol.

Arachnophobia is one of the most falsely self-diagnosed phobias there are. What many individuals do not realize is that phobias are "extreme" fears. They cause anxiety attacks and people go lengths to avoid the stimuli (arachnid). It's not a phobia unless you begin altering your life in order to avoid the source of your fears. What many feel is actually a uncomfortable sensation that leaves them with a slight tension and need to leave the present location. Yes, phobias have this same occurrence, but the feeling is amplified by 10 times. Some phobics describe the feeling as a heart attack (though this is usually characterized as a panic attack rather than an anxiety attack). The pain is still obsessive.

One time I saw a spider in my room so I ran out into the living room, and then I saw a spider in there too so I went into my kitchen and sat on a stool with my feet up sobbing for 5 hours. My mom got us a spider spray appointment for the next week and moved my therapist appointment to the next day, and I had to sleep in her room. You are very right, it's MUCH worse than people think. None of that was an exaggeration either. The 5 hours thing was almost exact

Seeing a spider is never something I'd be happy about regardless of the circumstances

uh..yeah excited for a spider? Hallucination or noy there is no way I'm happy to see a spider. And I definitely feel we need more "reason" for the non hallucination excitement. Seriously.

I assumed as OP is excited to have stopped hallucinating, they have mental health problems causing them to hallucinate, which is unpleasant to say the least so would explain why they are excited.
