That is scary. My symptoms

That is scary. My symptoms are strange too. Sometimes if I'm streased and tired, if I see colored translucent films or window tints, I feel the need to stare at them. Then I start to feel deja vu and my heart pounds. I become sort of transfixed if I see a car with red or blue tinted windows. Like those police helicopter windshield bubbles tinted blue. I inhale, then hold my breath. I keep feeling like there is a clue to a metaphysical mystery that I must concentrate on. Like something is trying to tell me something important. No seizures for me in 6 years though. Just glimpses.
