My story starts quite a while back.
When I was young, as long as I can remember, I have had intense Deja Vu. Sometimes it was just a sense of "I've done this before", but others the sensations and thoughts stretched so that I could anticipate the next 30 seconds to a minute of goings on. If I was mid-conversation, I knew the next couple things someone was going to say and things like that...
I was always told that deja vu is nothing special, that it is just your brain being weird. So, I never thought much of it until about six months ago.
Recently, I haven't had any 'deja vu'. Instead, they have been replaced by 'visions'. I still get the sense of familiarity, but it is amplified, and I also get a strong sense of panic. The things I see in my head are also different. Instead of seeing through my own eyes and seeing things going on currently I am seeing random people, places, events and even augmented cartoon characters a couple times. I don't think I've actually known any of the people I've seen, but the visions are not only overwhelming but they are like dreams in that details fade extremely quickly once it is over. I also have an emotional tie the people and things in the visions, although I've never met or experienced them, and while the vision is happening I am able to link things going on with other memories that are also not my own. Like I would be able to see a woman's face and feel her kindness and my affection for her, but I don't recognize the faces once the vision ends. It seems like I am seeing someone else's thought almost, in that once the connection is broken I can no longer tie the things in the vision to memories or emotions.
It is getting more and more frequent, so I am trying to find out what is going on with me on the internet before I take my issues to a psychologist. Please help!
