Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as symptoms you describe is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.

Many things =dread: Many things and situations can cause a person to feel dread. By itself I wouldn't expect such a feeling to to cause hallucinations or delusions but if a person were prone to these things they certain might come about. It would be important to see a psychiatrist to discuss these feelings and figure out the best treatment.
