This is the first step I have taken to help my friend, she has been feeling a presence everywhere she lives for as long as she can remember. Recently, about a year ago, the "feeling" she gets has gotten worse, so bad in fact that she has extremely bad anxiety, can't sleep by herself, and gets woken up throughout the night. She even plans where in the house she can relax because the "feeling" is least present in that location.
She has described the feeling as bad and really bad, never good. She says it's like the feeling you get when someone is standing right behind you and not moving. At times she feels like someone is on her chest and won't get off, or hanging on her shoulders all day. She says the hair on the back of her neck is always up and it gets worse daily. She used to be my care free friend willing to do what ever when ever, and know she is a bundle of nerves all the time!
I thought maybe if she embraced these feelings and stopped medicating the symptoms she might be at ease or could possibly help her understand. She is extremely scared though, and won't do it unless she sees that someone out there has experienced this before and can give her some advice. Anyone know what this kind of sensitivity is called? Anyone ever felt this way before? Thanks for reading
