          Young Woman Says She Sees ‘Shadow People’ And Hides From Them


          February 6, 2017

          “My entire life I’ve seen shadow people, but lately, it’s gotten worse,” says Haley who says she has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. “They have a head, and they have hands. They would tell me things like, ‘Don’t go into that room. There’s a bad person in there.’ And it said my name, ‘Haley, come here.’”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          Haley says that she has seen these figures since she was a small child.

          “When I start to see the black shadow people, I usually hide under my blanket for comfort. It’s overwhelming,” she shares.
