People who are actually nuts, never have the excellent good sense to post in this forum.
<br/>And secondly, while people with a psychotic illnes ( which might include some of the symptoms you describe ) have such experiences, they usually don't recognize them as peculiar or as likely to be due to illness of some sort.

It sounds as though you have, understandably, been psychologically affected by the injury and its treatment - and perhaps either by some physical components of the problem, or as a side-effect of medications - have you been taking ANY meds, from the docs or over-the-counter ? Mentioning these symptoms to your doc, maybe even having a quick checkup with a friendly local shrink, might help to clarify what is going on

Did you ever think of having another naked person lying down with you? You need that.
