c, I think you misunderstood me. When I said this is realistic, I mean that it can appear to you, or feel to you, as if it might be real. I am absolutely certain that these things are NOT real, and I'm pleased that you still recognize that they are not real. Increasing the Risperdal might help. But I'm woried that you hesitate to tell your doctor about this ---he/she has no reason to want you to do anything about this except whatever would be best for you and your continuing improved state of health. These sort of unpleasant and frightening psychotic experiences can occur during and related to, a range of different disorders, and it may be that adding some different component of treatment to the mix around now, could help a good deal.
If your doc is a psychiarist, then he's certainly met many people, and many experiences wierder than what you are experiencing, and we just frankly don't see people in those terms. And even a GP would surely respect you and concentrate on the issue of how best to help. If it is a GP you are seeing, you would do best to ask him to refer you to see a psychiatrist, for a re-assessment of the situation, and re-consideration of the best treatment plans.
And regular lurker or contributor, of course we're concerned --- we can hear that you're having a very scary experience, recognize that you need and deserve the best treatment available, so as to regain your equilibrium.
And Samantha --- pleased to hear you'll be regaining access to the meds, and hope you'll soon be feeling much better
