Exactly. I can't imagine anyone more fragile than someone who has absolutely no friends or family to talk to. A person in that position must wonder how they got there.
When I went through my most horrifying sleep hallucinations, fortunately I was in college and every campus (as far as I know) has psychiatric care for students. I was then just one more doctor away from finding what was happening to me. I didn't discuss this with friends or family because they were not professionals who could help me. I told them after I had been through a sleep study and they found out what was going on.
I am very happy that I had gotten a correct medical diagnosis instead of asking strangers what they thought might be happening to me.
Just because a person cant talk to thier friends and family about supernatural experiences doesn't mean they dont have a support system. I have a very supportive family but if I went to them they probably would have pointed me in the route that you have gone, and I must admit I am glad that I didnt. Im glad that the doctors cleared things up for you, that is great and excellent and now you can rest properly. But does that mean everyone else has to buy into the psychiatry system? I couldn't talk to family because they were athiest and didnt believe in anything spiritual at all.. i am blessed to have had some friends that i could talk to about it and i am sad for people who have to be completely quiet. Im sure they are out there.
Based on my experiences i have concluded there is more to it than mere brain dysfunction. If there IS something more to it, then how much knowledge are we missing out on when we completely reject all possibilities.
A proof for me is "Shared Experience". I dont need to go back and forth and recheck myself about this either. I know some supetnatural things happened with me and other people who were there. I dont need to trick myself into believing it never happened.
Let me repost the OP...
