Not really a mental illness...just a question
So I got interested in hypnosis and stuff and tried to hypnotize my self from this one website but I didnt get what I thought hypnosis was...like, I didnt get to that sort of trance/unconscious stage. I saw how you would just be really relaxed when you are done but I thought it would be something like passing out sort of or like in this movie I saw "Donnie Darko" where he was hypnotized and was able to fully answer questions then when the hypnotist clapped her hands he awoke and didnt know what happened.
So is hypnosis suppose to do what I think it is? Or is it just suppose to really, relax you? Or neither?
