Most people think I'm either crazy or I'm lying, so I figured that I'd share my story here and see if anyone can relate or provide me with some insight.
For as long as I can remember, I have had the ability to see people that aren't there. Most of the time, this happens when I'm driving. I'll be driving down the street in my car and see a person on the side of the road- not asking for help or anything but just standing there. By the time it registers in my brain to do a double-take, the person is gone. It happens to quickly!
For example, have you ever driven down the road and passed a person on a bike? You knew that you saw the person, but you didn't actually see their face or anything. It's the same premise, but the people that I see aren't actually there (or are they?! And if so, why can I see them and other people can't?!)
I see these people in all times of day or weather, day and night. And, I also feel that I should mention that it's not when I'm tired or dreaming, etc.
I have thought about doing some research into the areas that I see them (i.e. Car accidents, etc.) but I never get to see their faces, so I don't think I'd know if the person I saw was the person in the accident, or not.
That being said, I know I see them! Oddly enough, my sister also experiences the same thing. We happened to be talking a few weeks ago, and she mentioned that she also sees people that aren't there and has for her entire life, just like I have! The fact that we both experience this is another reason for me to believe that it's not just "my eyes playing tricks on me" as many people try to tell me it is.
Lately, I have been seeing more people that usual. They aren't scary and they don't say anything, but I know they're there.
I don't know if I sound crazy or what, but I'm not really sure of where else I can turn to. Is this just my eyes playing tricks on me? Or is this a thing? Has anyone else experienced this? Why do I experience it? And how do I better understand what's going on with me and how do I to tap into it to figure out who/why I see the people that I do (and how do I see them for longer?)
