My best friend has these hallucinations of random body parts that are burned. She'll be sitting in class doing an assignment and look up to see a burn arm or torso somewhere in the room. She says she has to concentrate on making it go away.

A few days ago she had another incident but it was completely different from her previous ones.

She was at home doing her homework and her mom was watching tv next to her. She heard heard foot steps above them( they were in the basement) and she said "chuck must be home" Her step dad opened the basement door and says "I'm home". Her mom then replies "there's food in the refrigerator." My friend goes upstairs but doesn't see her step dad. She calls for his name but no answer. She goes upstairs but he's not their and his car isn't in the drive way.

She then goes and asks her mom where her step dad went. Her mom said that he hasn't gotten home yet and also denies ever telling him there was food in the frige. Apparently she imaged it all.

I'm really worried about her because what she told me is just not normal. Does this sound like any sort of mental disorder?? If you have any clue then please say something!
