Throughout my life, during sleeping, have woken up and have had a hallucination of some sort. I used to get these sometimes when I was younger, maybe only 4 or 5 times a year. Usually I would just wake up and see insects on or around me. I know I was not dreaming as I remember waking up before they start and have had these hallucinations when other people are present.

These ones have bothered me but not that much. Two nights ago I had some extremely weird dreams involving me smoking and a friend of mine drowning in way I can't even explain. Last night however, I hallucinated again. But this time was completely different to the other times, for two reasons:
1. I didn't see insects as I always do, I saw other things.
2. I hallucinated 3 times in about 3 hours.

Not only was I bothered by the fact I hallucinated that often within that period of time, but what I saw, I found highly disturbing.
I thought I saw something moving, looked, and could clearly see a child under my sisters bed next me. I won't get into details, but I stared literally for 5 minutes. I hoped by staring, I would be able to make out what my eyes were confusing some sort of item resembling the child. Nothing changed, the child was still there.
Later on, this same hallucination happened again, as well as another of my earphones being removed from my ears.

I could not sleep for the rest of the night after this, scared that if I woke up again, I would see what I saw. I'm very scared and feel liek I am going insane. I'm not sure what triggered this.. I need help...
