Have you attempted at following scientific method to deduce whether your hallucinations were real or not?
Did you experience contact via your five senses (beyond vision) relating to what you have seen?
If so, then who is to say what is truly reality, you may be the next evolutionary step in mankind's evolution.
You're not the only one to have seen shadow people, I'm not diagnosed with anything, nor are any of my friends,
but when we were all young, we saw shadows at the corners of our eyes that would move and disappear the moment we looked at them. You might be onto
Admittedly, you could be dream walking, our brains produce a hallucinogenic drug when we sleep, it's what makes us dream. People who wake up in sleep
paralysis often hallucinate, this is because their mind is in a transitional phase between sleep and non sleep. When this chemical is active while you
are awake, it could account for your hallucinations.
I wouldn't call it a mental illness at all, merely your brain producing a chemical it isn't supposed to when you're awake. You seem pretty normal
As for the depression and sadness, along with pessimism and suicidal thoughts, what can I say, if you were rich you wouldn't have these feelings and
thoughts. It's nice to have a prestigious career, wealth and a woman by your side that is loyal and loves you for who you are. It's nice not to
worry bout what you gonna eat tomorrow or how you gonna pay rent so you don't end up homeless. Anyways, this is a sociological issue, so I'm not
going to get into it.
Maybe you have a few wacky stories to share with us relating to your experiences with this phenomenon, I would be inclined to read more on it. By the
way, have you figured out what the voices are?
If anyone likes to study themselves, they will notice that just before they fall asleep, their brain starts to relive the day's experiences, often
times right before sleep a conglomeration of voices and ideas will swarm your mind,
they are memories being relived and processed by the brain all at once. Your brain might be processing information while you're awake. Ever have
sleeping problems? Insomnia? If anything, I'd classify your condition as a sleeping disorder. I don't believe in mental illness, everything has a
root cause. People are too blinded by their egos to find the real causes of events, they prefer having the phenomenon molded around their individual
theory. mind you, my own is a theory, do comment on it, i wonder what you think about it.
