I can relate to that, I feel like this when I feel depressed. I guess you taking an overdose is a sign that you are depressed. Depression seeps into every part of my being and I feel like it almost squeezes out my personality. I have no 'energy' for personality, no motivation. Just fear of being me and life.

as for feeling like i am surrounded i don't know if its me being me or is there really am I surrounded i just dont knoe:confused:
I think hallucinations or seeing shadows can be due to a whole variety of things.

I would get your eyes checked, see your GP for a physical and if you take drugs don't take them. Try to rule out everything else.

Sensing others around you that are not there may be down to a form of anxiety or paranoia. Try to relax, learn relaxation techniques and rationalise with yourself that if you can not see it, it is likely that this sense is coming from you internally. It might be an idea to have a think about what a black dog or seeing rats might mean to you, and why you might be seeing those particular images, or who the 9-10 people might be?

There could be other MH issues involved here that may be causing this. So again it might be an idea to chat with your GP or a counsellor/therapist.

Take care

Hi its all in my head. Why have you started this all wrong?
If I have misunderstood then that's okay, it is not neccessarily to do with you perhaps I jumped to a conclusion?

Were you thinking this is a spiritual or ghostly experience you are having?

It may well be, who I am to know?

I do think mental health problems can border on the spiritual side of things. I tend to have the attitude of rule everything else out before I go to that side of exploration of my experiences, although that hasn't been and isn't always the case.

It's okay if you disagree with my posts and opinions you know. I am certainly no professional and even if I was that wouldn't give me any authority on interpreting how things are for you. I just offered an opinion and you are free to disagree with it, being a Mod does not mean that I am always or if ever right on interpreting peoples MH experiences. :hug:

Hi....

Sorry I have just noticed this thread..........

Are you actually seeing objects with form , or are you seeing shadows and thinking you saw things.

You say you are not sleeping , sleep deprivation is a whole thing in itself, I get it and when I do I see things move just outside my vision, I know they happen I know why, I look if nothing is there I dismiss it , like if you had a cold and you sneez, thats what happens when you have a cold.........
