A description of the experience

I have had these off and on for years since my early 20s. Usually at times when I'm most stressed. In the beginning I used to see insects crawling on the wall or flying around. Over the years they have progressed to people standing around the room, toppling boxes about to fall on my bed (which caused me to scream and roll onto the floor) or things floating through the ceiling. They always go away after a few seconds or as soon as I turn on the light.

I'm seldom really frightened by these visions. Usually, I'm extremely confused and will often talk directly to the people I see in the room. Then I laugh at myself and go bad to sleep. The really funny part is it will almost always happen around half an hour after I go to sleep. Sometimes multiple times a week.
