I've always been proud of the fact that I am open minded; but the question is simple. How open minded can you be before questioning your sanity? I've always tried to keep a clear view about everything I see. But in recent years I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong with me. I've read many stories on this site; hoping maybe somebody is having the same troubles. Then praying that maybe somebody can tell me that I'm not mad.
Since I was little, I've seen things people have said weren't there and more than once been taken to therapy by concerned parents. I'll see somebody then the next minute there aren't there. I'll hear whispers in old church grounds and get sudden emotions that I cannot explain, such as a deep sadness when I was happy only a minute ago or the sudden urge to find somebody I've never met. I've had everything I can think of ruled out. Yet still do not know what is happening to me.
I could go on and on about various things that have happened to me, over the years I have been alive; but I won't go into great detail at the moment, rather highlight the more common things that happen to me.
1. Seeing people who aren't there the next minute
2. Hearing whispers when I am on my own (more commonly in the old buildings near my home)
3. Sudden emotions that I can't explain
4. Having 'flash backs' of things that have never happened to me (once more when I'm alone or with friends)
I am just worried overall, I've moved into a new apartment (my first alone) and it once was a hospital but its getting worst and I'm terrified that I might be labeled crazy, when I'm not. It may turn out I am, but I do hope possibly somebody on here may have a general idea that doesn't include the word 'insane' or 'crazy'.
