Hello again ! It's been a long time since your last mesage here ! Having heard from Dude again yesterday, after a similarly long gap, it's feeling like a form of re-union is underway ! As for quiting benzo's, now you know why we recommend that this should not be done cold turkey !
Hallucinations occur under many circumstances ( some people get them after taking Tetracycline for an infection ) --- and are as you describe, so lifelike ( otherwise they'd never be confusing or troublesome ) except that nobody else hears or sees them. What you describe are not typical of the more sinister varieties of hallucinaton, but still, like anything significant, you ought to report them to your psydoc and therapist. Don't indulge in feeling guilty or bad about it --- they're related to your illness and its treatment, and no more your fault an someone with an infection who develops a fever ( which in itself, as it happens, can also cause hallucinations ! ).
Not batty, or even catty. I don't think the Furry Feline sees things, though I once shaed accomodation for some weeks with a highly unnerving Alsatian who used to see things. He'd dash into the room looking anxious and stare fixedly at something or someone standing behind you, glaring over your shoulder, in a most disconcerting way. Hard to remain concerted when he did that !
