I have a character who suffers from hallucinations. BUT I want the character to think he is hallucinating. In his back story he suffered 'visions' because of sleep deprivation. He is not schizophrenic. He will take LSD in the manuscript but this is not the cause of the hallucinations.
There are two points I'm looking to clarify:
1) Can anyone help with info regarding causes for hallucinations where a person can function on a day to day level? Seem normal.
2) Also, any idea what kind of experiences happen after LSD ingestion? Can this cure someone of their 'sleep deprived' hallucinations? Also what physical/mental sensations recur after LSD or magic mushroom use? I've heard people say that they are very thirsty and get muscle cramps.
Any help would be wonderful
