Sorry I cant chat here yet.

Is this the rite site to ask about ghost.

I see and feel bad ghost. Are they real? How do I deal with that?

  • Sorry I just now read your question in meta. You need to go to the doctor. They will give you medicine to make it stop. If you are poor like I was the meds will be given to you by the company that makes the drug. It will be difficult for a while but it will get better. – user3832 Jan 29 '14 at 8:33

    What Casey means, @AaronKorn, is that hallucinations are one of the possible side effects of Zoloft (Sertralin). You are probably not seeing a ghost, but an effect of your medication. You seriously need to talk to your doctor immediately. – user3116 Jan 29 '14 at 11:12
  • You'd be able to ask about ghosts at New Age proposal. – kenorb Jun 10 '14 at 10:19

No, unfortunately we won't be able to help you.

The policy of this site is that we cannot accept "self help" questions and if you are seeing "bad ghosts" which are disturbing to you, you should seek help from a medical professional/psychologist/therapist.

I wish you the best of luck!

  • if he is seeing good ghosts which are not disturbing him he should seek help from a doctor because they are like the gateway drugs of psychosis. – user3832 Jan 29 '14 at 9:49

I think Josh summarises your question well regarding the self-help aspects.

That said a few questions that might be on topic for this site related to ghosts:

  • Why do people believe in ghosts?
  • How does belief in ghosts affect X?
  • How does X influence belief in ghosts?

In general, whether ghosts are real is not on topic on this site. However, the belief itself could be on topic.

Is parapsychology off-topic? I assumed that it was part of psychology.

  • Yes pseudosciences are off-topic except to be denounced or explained in terms of science. – user3832 Jan 29 '14 at 9:47
  • Parapsychology is not a pseudoscience. It seems to me that you confuse the study of paranormal phenomena with a superstitious belief in these phenomena. Parapsychology is institutionalized at many universities worldwide and has been an area of research of many eminent psychologists. – user3116 Jan 29 '14 at 10:16
  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parapsychology what do you mean this definition says pseudoscience? – user3832 Jan 29 '14 at 10:17
  • There is no question that much of parapsychological research was fraud. That does not mean that a scientific study of paranormal phenomena or the belief in them must necessarily by unscientific. If you read more than the first sentence in that Wikipedia article, you will note that most of those sources that denounce parapsychology are either outdated (1980s or earlier) or more careful in their judgment: "philosopher Raimo Tuomela summarized why much of [but not all!] parapsychology is considered a pseudoscience". – user3116 Jan 29 '14 at 11:05
  • If you are interested in parapsychology today, this site gives you a first overview of research topics and methodology: igpp.de/english/welcome.htm – user3116 Jan 29 '14 at 11:05
