I'm scared to get mental help
I've been hallucinating my entire life. I remember hallucinating in the first grade but not telling anyone because I didn't think it was that unusual. It's only when I'm alone and it's not really thaaaaaat intense. Once i woke up and saw someone staring down at me and then it vanished. Once I was alone in my room and I heard someone yell "Hey" really close to my ear. I've heard footsteps and breathing and the sound doors make when you close them and tapping noises. I have never told anyone, not even my therapist or psychologist because I'm ashamed of it and I'm pretty sure my parents wouldn't believe me and my brother would tell me it's stupid. I can live my life and function the way I am now. Should I make an effort to tell someone I hallucinate or just go on hallucinating in secret?
