Need some help/advice/answers/enlightenment! !!!

Hey my name is freya and im 18 years old. My life I have believed in the afterlife and physic abilities and all that. I habe never encountered or experienced anything until recently perhaps im not sure.
I have been having these hallucinations of people it started a few months ago and at the beginning it was only slight silhouettes in the corner of my eye. But recently they have been more defined but less frequent. I don’t know if im going crazy or what but I was at work and a young woman with short brown hair tucked behind her ears just kinda flew across my face right in front of my eyes!
I don’t know what the fuck is going on but im gonna leave insanity out for now and just try and figure this out!
So please help me anyone ;(

As much as you don’t want to believe it, seeing apparitions is quite possibly a sign of mental illness.

This is in no way a normal experience.

The correct form for this would be IMHO, and I’ll ask that it gets moved accordingly.

Welcome to the SDMB, mysticalrobot.

Questions seeking advice and opinions, especially medical advice, belong in our IMHO forum. It’s no biggie. I will move this thread there for you.

Please note that any medical advice you get there is just the opinions of a bunch of online folks and should not be considered a substitute for real medical advice.

Moving thread from General Questions to In My Humble Opinion.

It could have a health-based explanation that doesn’t involve mental illness, but sadly those can be scary causes (brain tumor, for instance). :eek: Regardless of what’s causing it, this problem will almost certainly not just go away on its own.

However, no one can diagnose your problem via the Internet. You need to see a doctor.

I don’t know if this is the right board to ask about spiritual or afterlife issues.

I will say that I have had the same issue you are facing when I take too much ephedrine. I have no idea why, but I’d see imaginary people moving in my peripheral vision. However it never went beyond my peripherals.
