Does anyone else see Shadow People?

I know visual illusions are relative to the person experiencing them and everything you see and hear come from your own mind. But why are there so many people describing similar experiences when it comes to Aliens or Demons? Are they suffering from a mild form of Schizophria? Most of the people who make these claims are considered mentally stable to a certain extent.
I started seeing Shadow People when I was a early teen, long before I was diagnosed as Schizoaffective and long before I started seeking out stories about aliens and/or demons.
So my question is this; Is seeing dark figures as common place with this disorder as hearing voices? Or is it just me?

Re: Does anyone else see Shadow People?

Have you ruled out any eye disorders first? I say this because you imply that you are normal in other repects. Well I have bad (DES) dry eye syndrome and it gives me really really bad (AI) afterimages. Afterimages are images of the things I look at every time I blink I see a shadow of it and it follows me everywhere. People, objects, anything! The afterimages last a few seconds and since my eyes are always blinking by the time the afterimage fades, I already have hundreds of new shadows appearing and disappearing. Hope that gives you more info to work on.
