Hey peeps so keep seeing shadow figures in the corner of my eyes, I see these devil's

And when I close my eyes I see random people, God knows who they are

It's rather scary, can anyone relate?

Even on medication my voice has the ability to put images in my mind, eyes closed or open. As I pass people in the street while in the car as a passenger he can hold their image in my mind for a short time which is why I've put off learning to drive myself until he behaves himself enough for me to focus on driving, he also puts intrusive thoughts of us crashing in my mind and talks all the time which is also off putting.

Mine never learned how to create visual hallucinations so can't relate to that one.

It's possible for psychosis to cause hallucinations - I've seen people who aren't there and heard people talk about in the street and shops when I'm unwell, even experienced a Buddhist monk at the local temple talking about me. I've also had random visions when I have my eyes closed, a friend of mine when he was going into psychosis kept seeing magic mushrooms when he closed his eyes.

Was he taking magic mushrooms?

Get your eyes checked. It could be the start of macular degeneration.

When I am visually halucinating if I close my eyes the halucination stops. The image of what I saw is in my mind but not very clear. After reopening my eyes the halucination has normally past until the next one arrives.....weird

Same for me with audible hallucinations which I get the most. Wearing headphones usually drowns them out unless they are very persistent.

Oh I forgot. When I was put on depakote for a while I saw shadows and sparkling object that I thought were halucinations but it turned out that depakote does not like me.

When I closer my eyes I see random people, I don't know if it's my imagination playing tricks on me, all I know is that it makes me very uncomfortable

Thought I saw my wife in the car moving it,
Then she tells me she wasn't in the car

I'm flipping seeing things, feel so confused and lost from reality
