Chronic stress and halluncinations

Hi all! I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and was wondering if anyone with the same disorder, has had their hallucinations worsen when under a lot of stress? I seem to be experiencing chronic stress, and episodes of agitation as of now, not for a prolonged period. It is on and off most of the time.

An252399, Like you I experience hallucinations sometimes, usually when I'm really really stressed. I've found what works best for me is a lot of deep breathing and if that doesn't help, counting to 100. Sometimes a hot shower or bubble bath helps too, anything to help me relax.
