    They Tell Me What To Do

    Ever since I was a little kid I've experienced all kinds of hallucinations like shapes, shadows and characters. My mind must have been very active, clearly or it might be mental issues. Either way, it's always been like it. I suffer from hallucinations every day 24/7 and it's...

    Past Present And I Probably Will In The Future

    When I was younger it was thanks to some kind of drug induced assistance. Now its just from medical sh*t and fatigue. It drives me nuts, I will be doing laundry and see a shadow go over my shoulder. Or a full figure in a room, glint on my eye, or something move that isnt. It...

    Hallucinations

    When I was about 13 years old, my whole family used to camp out on the floor in our living room using sleeping bags, just for fun. One night, I had a bad fever that I didn't know I actually had, and I awoke in the middle of the night. I looked at the center of the room and I saw...

    Who Cares?

    It's perfectly normal to have an isolated hallucination once in your life. Many people do. If it just comes and then goes away and never comes back than it's nothing to worry about. That's why my mother didn't investigate the isolated case I had when I was 8. It didn't come back...

    I had one while I was in bed with a very bad

    flu. I woke up from a night's sleep and saw a horse near my bed. It was a freaking white horse just standing there with these wisdom filled eyes. And I didn't even freak out or anything. I just looked at it. We stared at each other for a moment and it disappeared.
