> Hi Elle, It would be great if you could get that article and post it. Do you actually see shadows? I see movement out of the corners of my eyes and occasionally hear someone calling me.

I posted two articles, but I'm still searching for one more that was much more to the point on the subject, I haven't been able to find it yet.

Out of the corner of my eyes I see movement like you describe, alot of the time it looks like a shadow passing. Also, occasionally I see flashes of light, very quick bursts of light. I do hear voices calling my name sometimes frequently sometimes infrequently. The voice is sometimes loud and authoritative, other times it is just a whisper. Either way, I always look up and see if someones really talking to me or not. Since some of the voices I hear are when I am in a crowded place, I hypothesize that SOME of the voices calling my name could be due to my social phobia and GAD. But, when I'm alone in the room and hear it, I have to attribute it to PTSD. I also notice that the majority of the times I hear my name being called is while I am either falling asleep or waking up. My T says this is normal for people in general (not just people with disorders). I also notice that when I haven't gotten enough sleep, all the symptoms are 20x's worse. I'm always hyper-vigilant, I feel like I'm ready to "fight or flight" at any given moment. Do you feel any of these things?
Elle
