Hallucinations

They are trying to keep you from sleeping. You are not sure who they are, but they are probably the boys from the house next door. Every time you lie down they start talking outside your window, whispering your name. They say they'll get you as soon as you fall asleep and that you had better watch out.

But those boys are quick. When you run to the window, they're not there. Sometimes you see just a shadow over by the garage, like someone staring back at you.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Hallucinations
  • Hallucinations Occur in Several Different Illnesses
  • How to Cope with Hallucinations
