People that keep telling me something is "just my imagination" or something altogether different from what I am experiencing.
I thought I was losing my mind.
I've had similar stuff happen to me. What I can't fathom is people telling me that it's in my head, then when I show it's real but try to agree that it was my perception, THEY GET STROPPY AND ANGRY!!!!
Really, some people won't take yes for an answer! I'm right! It existed! I perceived it different to you! Accept it and move on!
When I was a kid from 5 till 10 or 11, I would swear up and down, left and right that sounds/voices were coming from a "speaker" in the ceiling of my bedroom. Thing was my parents knew that nothing could come from the "Speaker" because it was just a cover. The teen that lived in my room before had gerryriged a sound system. The wiring was dangerous so Dad and Uncle took it all out and had covered the whole with one of those screens made for that.
Then my parents remodeled. The contractor suggested they add some soundproofing/insulation to my room/the new master bedroom. The air vents were carrying the sounds from the kitchen/family room into what had been my room. The air vent and speaker cover were next to each other. My parents grew up in the depression - when I complained about the voices at night they would turn off the TV, and come to my room. So no noise in the front room to travel to my room.
Years later I complained that the high whine from a transformer brick on the answering machine plug was driving me up the wall. My parents told me there was no whine.
Then I complained that in the same room the cable box would change itself. They didn't believe me. Then one night Dad yells at me to choose a channel and stop flipping through them because the noise was driving him batty. I walked up behind him from my room and pointed out No one was in the room to flip the channels. We stood at the door and watched the channels flip.
So the cable guy came - the problem electromagnetic energy given off by the malfunctioning transformer that was whining was causing a problem with the cable box.
