I do recall twice where I have experienced a shadow person.

The first time was about when I was in 7th grade I think. I was laying on the left of my bed on my side, I was facing the window. I turned over to get comfortable again and fall back asleep, when I did, I saw this black figure that looked like he had a coat with a hood covering his face. You could not believe how frightened I was at the time. I screamed at the top of my lungs. The figure stayed at the side of bed for a few more seconds before it, and I'm not kidding, faded away. At first, I, for some crazy reason, thought it was my grandmother, but then I remembered, people don't just disappear out of nowhere. Apparently, my grandparents heard me screaming and ran into my room. The rest of the night, I slept in my grandparents' room. For a whole month, I slept on the couch, refusing to go back into my room thinking I was going to get kidnapped to something. Of course, I eventually did begin to sleep there again, and I sleep in the same room to this day, but I every night I always get this strange feeling that someone is watching me. Sometimes I keep the light on and other times I just don't sleep until its three in the morning.

The second time I saw a shadow person was a few months after I saw the hooded shadow figure over my bed. This time, I was sitting on my couch in my living room watching tv with my grandfather. I stood up to go to the kitchen to get some water when I saw a full bodied man that was completely darken. The minute I noticed him, he turned towards the door that led to the hallway(I live in a building) and ran. I took my grandfather what I saw and he went to see if there was anyone outside. There wasn't.

What seems different to me from other acounts of shadow people is that I didn't see them out of the corner of my eye. I saw them right in front of me and clearly. I first thought the things I saw were ghosts and I didn't find out until recently that what I saw might have been shadow people.

Not to be too big a skeptic, but you had mentioned your father had a mental illness, and a lot of times, mental illnesses make you hallucinate. Even with a disorder like I have (bipolar) which doesn't normally make you see things vividly, I see stuff sometimes. Just a month ago or so, I was showering and thought I saw some kind of demonic figure in the shower curtain. I knew it wasn't real, but it still made me curl up in the corner in a fetal position, crying my eyes out. I've seen plenty of evil faces in the walls, wood tables, curtains, windows, floors, ceilings, everywhere. I'm the biggest skeptic in the world, and these "sightings" were so realistic, it screwed me up for weeks.

Just trying to offer an alternative suggestion. There are scenarios where people go years seeing / hearing things and have no clue these things are figments of the mind and nothing more. Ever see the movie A Beautiful Mind? I'm not trying to be a psychologist (no way), but this kind of thing has happened to me before and I know to just try to ignore it because deep down I know it's not real at all.

:sleepy: Wow umm yes you might be tripping, seeing shadows and vague figures walkin around is a form of schizophrenia and paranoia, so be sure to get yourself checked first. I personally have never seen of these shadow people but i've heard of them being discussed, many times on the radio.

Just a few days ago, I saw a person with black hood. It was like a grim repear without the scythe. I was like wtf, and I quickly went back up stairs. I saw it outside my house walking past. It had its arms crossed, walking slowly past. Needless to say I was instantly fearful.

I've had a lot of encounters with shadow people, unfortunately. Not to say these were enlightening encounters at least.
Over my lifetime, I've seen 5 apparitions. 2 of which were ghosts, 3 were shadow people. So I have a true story that happened to me that actually spanned from October 2009 to April 2010. Again this has actually happened to me, I don't like to lie.
Before I begin, there is a couple things that people should know about me. One, I am not psychic. Two, I suffer from an illness called migraine auras. Many of you may write off everything I've seen to these "migraine auras" but I know when I get one and I didn't have one when I saw these shadow people. But for those of you who feel the need to be skeptical, you may convince yourself otherwise.
I've actually written every encounter I've had down in my diaries, so I know exact dates and exactly what happened. Here we go.
On October 31st 2009, I was at a friend's house we were just hanging out, watching movies. since it was halloween. I came home the same night at about midnight and was tired. I decided to go straight to bed. I remember seeing 12:11 am on my alarm clock before I turned out the light. I felt fine and I fell asleep moments later. Then it seemed that my room got kinda hot during the night, I was facing the wall when I awoke and it was humid and hot and I actually had sweat on my forehead! I decided to roll over onto the other side of the bed, but I was stopped short because of a floating dark mass flying around in my room!
As anyone would be, I felt a mix between panic and confusion, the only thing I thought to do was stare at it more. Actually, I was just too scared to scream. I had a lot of time to register what I was seeing. The way I described it was "it looked like a black box with wirey tentacles and at the ends of these tentacles were flashes of yellow light, like it was multiple live wires all messed about and- it just too hard to describe"
So this thing, just floated around my room some more until it stopped approximately a foot and a half above my thighs as I was lying down and then all the lights on it went out and then it fell. It just fell on me. I freaked out then. Weirdly enough, when it fell, I felt nothing hit me at all. I flipped on all the lights in my room, scouring for this mysterious black box that had just disappeared into thin air.
I found nothing of course.
Nothing happened for a while until the night of the 6th of January 2010. This is the time where I was beginning to believe that what I saw on the 1st of November wasn't actually there. But here's what happened, after the time I saw the box, I promised myself, that the next time I saw one, I would talk to it, or at leaast try to get some answers out of it somehow.
On the 6th of January, the same scenario occurred only my diary says it was about quarter to twelve when I went to bed. Again, I woke ap about an hour later, hot and sweaty for no reason I turn over, but instead of a box, I see a figure of a person in my closet who begins walking closer to my bed. I was really scared, but I remembered my head and said the first thing I could think of. I said "Who is it" I didn't really give it the tone of a question. But the moment it heard what I said, it stopped right next to me and remained motionless, standing in the middle of my room. I couldn't even see the dresser behind him anymore. Anyways, I flipped up the curtains next to my bed and the streetlight filled the room and it wasn't there anymore.
The next day, my best friend wasn't at school and I really wanted to tell him about it. When I talked to him on msn that night I tried telling him, but then he phoned me, telling me he was attacked by one that same night.
I have another experience that took place in April of this year, but I think I should let people digest what I have just written.

Hang loose and live high, because it's always better when we're together.
Love your O'hana.

I wish I knew what they wanted too.
If you don't like them try telling them to go away politely. They can be very scary sometimes, but try to ignore that part. I find that the moment they touch light of any kind, they just disintegrate. Maybe keep a flashlight next to you.
Good luck!

From what I know, "shadow people" is the nondescript name given to a nondescript concept of a nondescript event.

Basically the gist is this. Ever see something out of the corner of your eye, something so quick it didn't really have time to register as anything specific, but when you turned to look at it nothing was there? It happens all the time to most people. Sometimes something really did just flit past--like the shadow of a bird. But more often than not it's just your brain playing tricks on you. Your brain actually registers something that is not there, often beyond what you would normally be able to perceive anyway. It's just a normal error in perception. It is most likely to happen in heavily shadowed areas or places in low light--places where your brain has to work extra hard to pick out any sort of pattern or meaning from your surroundings.

People who tend to look for the most outlandish explanations in everything claim that those litte "errors" are actually peeks into an alternate reality/dimension inhabited by beings outside our normal realm of perception--i.e. the Shadow People.

Kind of a creepy idea, but one which is absolutely unfounded. It is by far the less likely explanation.

I did not believe that they existed either... until I saw them. If you are in great pain or turmoil...they will show up.

Why do you catch them out of the corner of your eye?

Most or most likely all these things people see are due to vision problems.  Speaking from experience, i was seeing shadows or smoke in my peripheral vision, from the corners and even from the top where i would look up but once my eyes focused it disappeared and sure enough i had a vision problem.  It should be well documented but i dont think it is yet.

One time my brother and some friends of his were walking down a suburban road at night. My brother saw something that was like a shadow of a person near a driveway but there was no one there. After he saw it one of his friends said "that's strange," and they both confirmed that they had seen the same thing. I can't say much more about it since I wasn't there, but it was definitely creepy.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
