From the post to which I am replying, about 'seeing from my own perspective', it sounds much like a sort of OOBE - out of body experience. Do you
have the sense of floating, or does it feel as though you are 'full-bodied'..? Can you feel your footfalls down the stairs / is there any audio / can
you smell anything in the 'other place', or is it a purely visual sensation.?
I've read that people can have these OOBE's quite easily with practice - a sort of consciousness projection, not necessarily actually leaving the body
- it's like our brain is able to 'be' in two places at once. Quantum entanglement represents the start of knowledge that may one day lead us to a
scientific explanation for these types of occurrence. Hopefully it's not too disturbing for you? I certainly wouldn't call it a psychosis, as you
did in your title for the thread. Don't allow anyone to try and label you as psychotic for something like this by the way..
Chronaut's advice seems wise - get checked properly with an MRI scan
(or whatever scan it is the doctors do in such cases). Could be
that you are having some sort of 'misfire' in your brain electrical activity which is somehow triggering a consciousness experience of (either) simple
memory, or (more exciting) consciousness projection. There is a risk that it could be practically hazardous in some situations (whilst driving for
example), so take things easy and don't put yourself under pressure to get loads done in one day - tiredness may influence the matter.
If the doctors are reluctant to investigate, bring up a 'concern' about your safety while driving. Depends where you live and what your doctors are
like, what type of healthcare provision you have etc - but if you bring up safety concerns (whether real or just hypothetical) they tend to act, if
only to cover their own rear ends... After a full scan and a consultation with a specialist, there's every chance that a medication exists to bring
the symptoms under control - but if you don't ask, you won't know..
EDIT TO ADD - DO NOT BE EMBARRASSED TO DESCRIBE THE SYMPTOMS TO A DOCTOR.
Say that you are concerned there is some odd brain activity causing these experiences. Don't try and explain it as an OOBE (or they may try to review
you under mental health grounds). Raise a concern about your safety while driving - or while crossing the road. Demonstrate that you live a normal
life (assume you do) and that you believe the symptoms are quite possibly coming about as the result of a biochemical/ bioelectrical problem in your
brain. The doctors will easily assess the matter - but remember that a general practitioner is effectively a 'nuts and bolts' doctor, a generalist
who is not specifically trained in these matters and cannot give you a full explanation - that's why he refers you to the care of a specialist
neurosurgeon (or whichever sort of specialist it may be).
