I see things sometimes/hear things that aren't real.

OKAY, firstly am I using this site correctly? Is this what the site is for or am I confused?

Alright, before I type anything about my problem/issue. I am not taking drugs, I'm not drunk. I can't get help right now with the virus and everything. I also feel like none will respond so I don't understand why I'm trying this.
Also, excuse my kinda awful grammar, and sometimes there might be a word that's not supposed to be in the sentence or I might miss a whole word.

Now that, that is said:

When I was about 11-12 years old I saw white floating faces. Only two, the first time when I was walking the dog and looked up at my mom's dead friend's apartment window. I wanted to throw up when I saw the face and I just felt so stressed. This was a few days after my mom's friend got killed. Then again when I was 12 at my father's house. It was 3 AM, I was walking downstairs and saw a different white floating face in the dark smiling at me, I immediately ran upstairs again and never said anything to anyone.

I used to see my dead cat sitting at our stairs for a month after he passed. I always ran past our stairs, I can't sleep in a dark room if I do, always stare at the wall for the whole night because I feel watched even if I know that there is none there. I also saw shadows at times.

I was diagnosed with PTSD at 15 among other things. The rest isn't important. I never mentioned that to a therapist because I thought I was just being a stupid kid with weird imagination. Then at 17 as I was walking I thought I saw someone as I blinked none was there. I freaked out a bit, I'm 100% sure that if it was a real person they had nowhere to go except straight forward for while. then the usual, thinking I saw a shadow while there is nothing there.

Then at 18 which is now. ((I had no neighbors at the time)) I started to hear seeing things in the dark/sounds. Like someone was unlocking my door at 2 AM when I checked it was nothing I heard that many times at night for a whole week. I also thought I saw a shadow of a hand touching some flowers in the stairwell from the peephole. I even opened my door to check and none was there. I stayed awake the whole night sitting by my door while crying.
Another night I thought a girl was crying in the stairwell, I didn't open the door, I just held my door handle tightly until the sun came up. I hate being home alone because I think I hear things so I have to put on headphones and listen to loud music, it makes it a little easier to ignore my paranoia or what to call it.

I also heard a woman say something in my living room as I was heading upstairs. I was home alone and my tv wasn't on, no window was open. When I heard it, I got extremely anxious and tried to play it off as nothing to myself.
((Heard a kid laugh downstairs as well once.))

Another time my cat was meowing loudly and I went over to him and shushed him, right after I heard someone in my ear go "Shhh" It sounded so real. like someone was standing right next to me. I froze and just stood there while my heart raced. (I was home alone at that time.)

This is all I can remember. This is all just bothering me, I feel like there is something wrong with me. Could it just be my PTSD? should I have posted this in the PTSD topic instead??
Saying this once again I'M NOT ON DRUGS NOR AM I DRUNK.

You need to contact your doctor and ask for a referral to a psychiatrist. Only by having an assessment will you understand what this is.

There needs to be some care over this issue. In the purely clinical sense, I experienced what's known as sensory hallucination by way of scents. It's a symptom of Schizophrenia along with Synthesia symptoms or "voices". Now, Synthesia (tactile sensations) or voices I have never experienced. Strange scents, yes! Only in childhood.
What happens is there can be an overlap. Spiritualists call my childhood experience "Clairolfaction". There are quite healthy psychics who report this phenomenon. I heard a case of a woman who was smelling aftershave in the patio around 6.00 am and it turned out a man used to sit there and read the paper at that time. He wore aftershave and had long since died. So, in my view, psychotic hallucination is real but, by the same token, most people at least once might have seen a ghost or had some experience.
Also, the great inventor Nikola Tesla suffered Synthesia. I read he used to cut bits of paper up, put them in a jug of water, dip his fingers in and somehow taste the paper through his fingers.
I think Quantum Physics can attempt to explain phenomena we used to laugh off as absurd. Such as wormholes and shifts in perception of time. Ghosts in my view could very well be natural transmission of images in a similar manner to cathode ray tube audio and visual transmission. Amateur radio users reported strange phenomena at the time of the Aurora Borealis when the earth's magnetic field is affected.
So, visual phenomena can be genuine hallucination, possibly a psychic experience or both.

So called positive symptoms of Schizophrenia start around aged 18 or around. This could be considered. In such a case the person's own thoughts reverberate and appear alien to the subject. Other positive symptoms may be feelings of being followed and certain delusions. Prior to these positive symptoms the negative symptoms are present much earlier on. These are disorders in thought and emotion. And lack of motivation.
In my case I had hallucinations during childhood but rarely as an adult. Most of mine were strange noises and pretty terrible nightmares. Also fear of certain objects.
Finally beware of drugs such as LSD or mushrooms. These do cause hallucinations. Or even you can react to medication.

Um, alright. No need to respond to this again. like ever. I wish I could delete/edit this but this site is stupid.
Thanks to the 3 people that wrote even if only 2 wrote to try and help. I should have clarified that I never take drugs and that I really can't seek help right now. Which I thought I did at least with the I can't seek help right now.
I should have clarified that I tried to see a therapist but they removed my time on and on again and then canceled it because I didn't go? like what? I wish I was joking. It's pure bullsh*t


Anyway, thanks, don't reply to this subject!
