Mental Health and Altered perception (senses): Hallucinations

Mental Health: Wellbeing and Happiness Series with MoNya-Mental: It is usually after auditory and visual hallucinations that we see tactile, gustatory and olfactory By Mertha Mo Nyamande What is? Our five senses are our maps/plans that help us navigate/build life. It is in how we have maintained these maps/plans that life becomes harder or easier to live. Imagine life like a plan that a builder uses to build a house. Our lives are similarly to that process; how careful the plan is kept and used. Some will be tattered and torn in weeks, while others will still be intact and functional even centuries later. Our mental health is very much like this. When we are born, we are free from a lot of the unnatural habits we are forced into or conditioned to. It is those habits that guard or neglect our health; both mentally and physically. We largely rely on our five senses for these processes, and this enhances the use of the sixth. When these senses are compromised, we find ourselves struggling depending on which sense is affected. Our five senses are in order of hierarchy and proximity: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste.
