ever since junior high (shes 22 now) she has "pretended" people from books,movies,or just characters shes made up are actually alive and are with her. we went to disneyland,she pretended that 2 characters from her favorite book were with us,when we got home i guess she didnt realize that they werent real and pulled the front seat forward to "let them out". its gone on like this for years,in high school it toned down and she would just lay in bed with her head phones in "pretending" she was in the story or something.

and now shes 22,and still does this shit. pretends people are in the car with her while she drives,talks to herself as if shes talking to the people in the car with her,pretends that they are in her house hanging out. she randomly smiles at nothing...its weird.seriously is there something wrong with my dd? i took her to the doctor when she was in junior high and they said she had adhd (that explained the leg shaking) but it doesnt explain her seeing people that arent there

OH and to top it off shes married and has a 2 year old and still does this

ALA she is pretending and not actually SEEING them.....still not sure what to think though.  Has she seen a shrink?  If not, can you suggest it to be safe?
