You are obviously distressed by your experiences, whatever may be the cause. Do you have close family or a friend whom you can trust to give you good advice and support?

Are there any triggers that you are aware of? Do you have a good relationship/trust of your Doctor/GP.

What you are experiencing could be the result of any number of possibilities physiological, Psychological or indeed Psychic.

You are wise to want to address this. First of all get some checks done with your Doctor. You may be suffering from Epilepsy, seizures, Diabetes or a neurological problem. You may be suffering a bout of Anxiety or Mild Psychosis which has been triggered by a traumatic event.

There are many conditions that it could be. Please don't think that it has to be the worst case scenario.

And yes, it is a good sign that you are questioning these experiences, you sound quite rational and responsible in your thought processes.

Definitely get checked over to rule out Epilepsy and Diabetes et.c before trying anything with binaural Beats, as this could trigger seizures or exacerbate your symptoms.

I wish you all the best, try not to worry.

Hi Uniceft17, I doubt very much that you are insane, as some have mentioned you really would not realise it if you were. I also would not go and get medicated or go to a psychiatrist first off, as they would not understand if this were something of a psychic nature and you will just be medically coshed for no reason.
I would try to find someone who does energy healings or is spiritually aware who can sense if your crown chakra has opened too fast or something. It does sound as if you are just too open and there is too much flooding in. As for the dark shadows and the woman you see....next time you see her/them ask very firmly that they leave you now as it is scaring you. Just ask that they don't appear to you again and see if that works.
As for this not being normal....well, no...it's those of us who don't see things that are not really normal. We should all be able to see/know/feel/hear things but we are too dulled by the illusionary reality. So please don't panic.

Maybe you are right.
It crossed by my mind to add that it is not testable with our current scientific knowledge. Just decided to leave it raw because it seemed like it didn't really matter at this point of the discussion.

Well, I am no Doctor, so please take this in context.

Good News = You are not mentally ill.

Bad News = Probably just a brain tumor.

In the words of Seal. "We're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy."



Have a nice day. KK

See a doctor and get help.

Many people here on ATS are against ANYTHING main stream such as seeing a doctor and getting on medication...

I have said this before and will say it again.

My uncle is a schizophrenic. Nicest guy ever, until he has a schizoprhenic moment and he held up a hotel and was sent to jail.

To those saying we are all crazy...stop trying to be a Shakespeare. The OP could have a serious mental condition and trying to act like everything will be fine is plain ignorant.

Serious question. Is the woman you say you see a Gilf?

Anyway, it sounds like you care too much. From the way your telling your story it sounds as if most of the damage being done is from your anxiety. I suffered from severe anxiety and thought I was going crazy but realized that the only thing that was hurting me was my own anxiety about things that I really dont have any control over. After that I calmed down big time and feel much better.

What I'm trying to say is, who cares if theres ghosts and crap trying to mess with you. Put on an attitude that says, go to hell I could care less what you do to me ghosts. and in reality why get all worked up over mild "hallucinations". Just accept that its something your going to have to live with in this very short life.

I mean comeon, you say you get worked up just because you play with your hair. THATS NO BIG DEAL. If anxiety is what is bothering you the most remember that anxiety is not real outside our perception, so you are the controller behind it.

We all see, hear and feel things. It's not unnatural to see, hear and feel things that no one else does. It happens with everyone but most people simply discard those experiences because of fear of being rejected.

You are not crazier than anyone else, believe in yourself!


Please dont listen to this as it is not true. It is unnatural to hear voices and see things that others do not. Healthy people dont generally see or hear things that are not there or that others do not.

Just because he sees/hears things that others cannot does not mean they aren't there. There are countless possibilities that could explain what it is he's seeing. From imaginary things to alternate timelines/dimensions. Who knows. Good luck to you.

No, not exactly.

If your having cardiac issues, See a Cardiologist. They are actually pretty damned good.

If your bleeding, go to the hospital. If your blood wont clot, take the meds.

But if you are suffering "Mental issues" Avoid those doctors please, they are totally primitive and their medications are horrific and dangerous. I consider mental doctors to generally be quacks. Sad but true.

But by all means, if your break a bone, go to the hospital.

HUGE difference. Our physical medicine is improving greatly, but mental health medications are replete with quackery and misinformation, and not to mention for the 50th time, dangerous! (And straight jackets suck!)

First, I am sorry that you are experiencing such a disturbing situation right now.

Second, this problem, what ever it is, as was mentioned by several thoughtful posts below, is a biological thing and no different than any other biological disorder. The brain is an organ and things can occur within the brain. Don't be ashamed of having a biological disorder, should you have one. Being ashamed will make it more difficult to address the situation.

Third, don't believe this nonsense of being haunted, moving into an altered state of awareness or any of that business. It is nonsense and frankly, irresponsible for someone to suggest to you that you should not seek medical support for this condition.

Fourth, don't go to see any type of doctor other than a psychiatrist. You may need a doctor who can prescribe medication and a psychologist can't do that. You need to see an MD. If you don't feel comfortable with the MD you see, go and see another with whom you feel comfortable.

Fifth, don't give up on getting well. Some of these conditions can take a long time to get solved. For example, the average person with Bi-Polar Disorder takes over a decade to get properly diagnosed. Often they get significantly worse as their GP will proscribe a series of anti-depressants and that is potentially very dangerous for someone with bi-polar.

Finally, best of luck. Keep positive, keep working on a solution and have faith that you can be made to feel better.

Ghosts are real and when you finally see one, you will be apologizing to me. Then you will understand why we are a primitive species scientifically.

This stuff about chakras though? Never seen a shred of proof. So thats up in the air still.

But sure, convince them to go get institutionalized for life, and drugged up on chemical compounds YOU nor ANYONE else fully understands!

Maybe if you were an advanced human from the future, I would entertain this opinion you present, or if you were an advanced alien with high technology.

However I am guessing you are a primitive human just like the rest of us, making statements like this only proves my point!

Seeing is knowing. Once you see, you can U2U me the apology.

Just a couple of questions if i may?

Have you or your family ever been involved in spiritualism, ouija boards, satanism, or any other occult practice?

Are you currently on any psychotropic medications?

Did ever suffer any great trauma as a child?

Research shows that many psychiatrists recognize and associate Schizophrenia and MPD, as often being linked to demonic activity within the sufferer.

Sometimes we can open up other realms of reality (unknowingly) through our walk in life, especially when the door of fear is opened up within these realms of reality.

Just my opinion as a possible cause!

I did not suggest that ghosts are not real. They very well MIGHT be. Biological disorders of the brain are REAL. They can be diagnosed, identified by a variety of methods which have real quantifiable results.

What is described is a potentially life threatening disorder. Could be a seizure disorder, could be a tumor, could be a host of things. It could also be something that moves the person to retreat within himself and damage his/her life in other ways as well.

Seek a medical solution and to the extent that one can not be found or a somatic cause for the experiences not be identified, alternative treatments are potentially in order.

Too bad she wasn't a MILF? Then at least you could do something with her!

I'm sorry to say this and I'm NOT being unkind or have a desire to be hurtfull but yes, this certainly appears to be the product of an unbalanced mind and is entirely delusionary in nature.

My advice would be to seek medical help and treatment.

As for the rest of you, STOP reinforcing this persons delusions.

By all means he should get checked out medically first, but as psychiatry is in the dark ages and in the grip of evil drug companies and ignorance of anything outside of its understanding, it would be irresponsible to suggest that is the first port of call.
It’s equally as irresponsible to suggest that the OP is bi polar, schizophrenic, has a brain tumour or is possessed by the devil. If he is not insane now (which he isn’t), he will be close to it after reading this pile of bilge. Deny ignorance…wow. I take it you people that think mind numbing drugs are so great will all be queuing up for this swine flu vaccine as you have such faith in the wonderful pharmaceuticals industry, known for it’s morality and goodness the world over.
There is much more to this world than meets the eye, just because you have not seen it does not mean it is not there. Anything that is outside your personal realm of experience is not necessarily mental illness.
Most of you believe in aliens, abductions and God knows what else, but you cannot entertain the idea of seeing a spirit…or being open to other realms?

PLEASE!

Please do not listen to people who have posted in here suggesting your symptoms may be due to demonic possession.

This is beyond irresponsible.

As I said before, don't be afraid, and don't take on anyone else's fear about it either.

You're not possessed.

You are suffering from symptoms of mental illness that can be treated responsibly by a medical professional with an open mind for alternative therapies as well as medication.

reply to [url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread486006/pg1#pid6798880]post by I am sincerely concerned that you are suffering from some form of schizophrenia. The age and sympthoms are consistent with the disease. I suggest thee get thee hence to a psychiaratist for evaluation. You may require a brief inpatient stay, but if that is the case, don't let it put you off. It usually means a weak, maybe two, while they evaluate you and develope a medication regieme that is right for you. (Remeber, this drug coctail may have to be adjusted once in a while, until they findly find the right mix.)
I used to play guitar with a young man who had been diagnosed as schizophrenic. Had I not been told of hid diagnosis, and had I not known wat to look for, I would have had no clue. And he was a brilliant guitarist. I wish I had just half his talent.
Jason, if your out there, I sure would love to get together with Karen, Whiz and you once again. Damned if we didn'gt have fun.

Sorry to diagaree with you but psychiatry is not in the "dark ages." Tremendous strides have been made in the last few years regarding the treatment of mental illness. I, myself take antidepressants. My emotions are level. I am not numb. I am capable of expressing joy, sadness, anger, laughter and tears.
There are similar drugs that are available for schizophrenia. They will deaden the voices, so that they are a distant background noise, or else they will deadent them altogtherld. This young man needs help, and he needs it now. We need to let the drugs go to work so he can explore his reality and decide which course is right for him.

You should definitely see a Doctor and get a referral to see a psychiatrist. I suspect that your condition is mild and can be rectified with a small amount of regular medication. Could even be caused by a pituitary gland or thyroid malfunction. I am not a Doctor but have had some close fiends with symptoms like yours.

I have a question: Does the world or people ever seem to be going in slow motion around you?
