Our expert says:
Diagnosis is often not easy, and there is something obsessive about being anorexic, while an overlap with depression isn't uncommon. But seeing things that aren't there, seeing people, is unusual and not typical of any of these conditions. This could be various types of psychotic illness, including posibly schizophrenia, but there are other possibilities, too. What is really needed is for her to see a good psychiatrist for a thorough assessment and a proper diagnosis.
I don't know what you mean by "seeing someone", and maybe you don't know either. She needs to see a psychiatrist and to frankly tell him about the things she sees, etc, so even if she is actually seeing a shrink, if she hasn't told them about the hallucinations, they may not recopgnize all that could be happening.
