Here's what I've determined so far:
- It's not drug-induced or alcohol-induced. I'm underage anyway.
- It's not from depression
- It's not delusions, I'm very much aware that what I'm seeing isn't there.
- It's not affecting my behaviour per se, but I'm becoming more paranoid as they get worse. My behaviour towards others remains unaffected.

I started out just seeing the shadows move, or some obscure, undefinable animal, demon, or person-like body near me, out the corner of my eye. When I would look directly, I no longer saw it. It only ever happened in the dark. Recently, however, I've started experiencing this in light areas as well. The 'beings'/whatever they are were still obscure though. I never saw anything in any kind of detail. However, the other day, I saw a ghost-like figure. It was a woman, in some sort of dress. It was still smokey - like, the figure was literally made out of white smoke, with a black core. I hadn't ever seen something with that ammount of detail, and I was instantly unnerved. I'm afraid of these hallucinations getting worse, as they apparently are. It's been going on for a few years, but I never thought much of it, until now. Any idea of what this might be?

Sorry for the block of text!
