Unhappy Seeing things without being schizophrenic?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong thread. I didn't know if I should post it here or the schizophrenia thread.

For quite some time I have seen things out of the corner of my eyes. I have floaters, which I know can affect this. I also wear glasses and when I forget I'm wearing them, the rims look like something, but of course aren't.

What alarmed me is when I saw a drop of blood that wasn't there. I was expecting to see it, which I know can make your eyes play tricks on you. At first it looked like it was there, but wasn't. This has never happened. I have been in and out of therapists offices for OCD and depression, and I have never been diagnosed with schizophrenia or anything that causes delusions.

I don't see people or hear things. I think the problem may be that I get scared of seeing things, and when I expect to see them, my eyes play tricks on me. I also read that this problem can be caused by mental stress, which I do have a lot of. Can anyone relate to this? If so, please tell me. It would be nice to know that I'm not alone. Thank you.

Re: Seeing things without being schizophrenic?

Stress, sleep loss, depression, and bipolar can all cause hallucinations; this doesn't, by itself, mean you have schizophrenia.
