I heard that if you hear voices externally ie from behind you or coming from,i dunno,a heating vent or something then it's said to be psychotic.I don't so much have this problem,but i do hear voices inside my head a lot of the time,does anyone else get this? It's like conversations going on in my head and it's all just random things being said and in amongst it all is my inner voice trying to find me,but it's surrounded with all this other noise,i notice it especially when im lying in my bed,it's like no control over thoughts,and they are so random and jump about from what subject to the other. Is this just me?

No I dont think it is just you
I do sometimes have the same thing going on I am stressed about all around me worried about dad and daughter hubby and all and I will hear all my convo's going on in head
I had to ask the doc for something to help me stop this "Stinking Thinking " as I call it and stop the convos in head at night especially when trying to go to sleep
I take Trazadone and it works on your brain to stop you from thinking and worrying constantly
At least for me it works,and I relax and sleep at least
It is part of the wonderful " gift" we call anxiety IMO........What a gift Eh
Sorry you get this too but be assured you are not alone
Please let us know how you are doing okay and maybe this med may help I am not sure talk to your doc okay
Take care

Thanks lyn. I've only posted a few times on here and i've noticed how helpful you are and how dedicated you are to responding with possitive answers. I appreciate your reply. I find it encouraging because my anxiety has made me very self obsessed,i find it difficult to take the time to worry about other people because i spend the majority of my time worrying about myself,i'm trying my best to work on this. I will mention it to my doc and see what he says,thanks again.

No problem
Most times I do relate to what the poster is talking about
I am a walking talking ANXIETY machine or actually I was and use to be constantly worried about myself and health which of course in the long run made me sicker with my crohns and other illnesses I have .
You are going to be okay
Have you tried Cognitive behaviour Therapy it is good and it helped me quite alot
I am still doing it
What it does is changes the way you THINK and that for me was a biggie
The link is ModGyms Training Program ..........in case you are interested
Also I found at night a HOT milk ( has ingredient that activates when heated) will calm me down to it just fills your body with a warmth you would not believe
You can put a touch of cinnamon on top to help with the taste if you are not found of the hot milk .lol .......many are not yet it does wonders and is the or is one of the most natural ways of sleeping ( reason baby has bottle warmed or heated )
Anytime my friend I am here and I have this DD just like you and all the others
Support during these times I feel is crucial and HW and the ppl offer the best IMO
Take care and be well
Lyn
BTW...Trazadone is non narcotic and non addictive ( from my experience ) .......I think there are others here that take this med as well
All the best

I understand. To me, its like a radio is on all day, and even when I sleep its like I'm watching TV I dream so much. Its not "voices" like telling me to do things, or anything, its "me" but its just random thoughts, all the time. do you dream a lot too??

i also have a lot of conversations running around in my head....i mean its all me.....just different parts of me

ive been diagnosed as ADD and bipolar type 2


im not really interested in taking an excessive amount of drugs....just to help my add....i think EVERYTHING stems from that and even doubt i have bipolar disorder....ive been off medication for bipolar for 3-4 years now and have had really no problems without them.....except for the concetration and focus....ive pretty much seluded myself in my house for a long time without working or getting a job because of this.....im not on the bat or the ball like i should be and im way behind

im on 100 mg wellbutrin as of a week ago

im living at home with my parents...and i get this idea theyre trying to kill me..... but heres the thing.....its more than an idea....essentially...they have ... both my parents have attacked me, my fathers newlywed wife has attacked me, and my sister has attacked me....and theyve all blamed it on me....

my mothers a nurse, a mere RN....and ALWAYS tried to diagnosis me with anything from having a gender identity crisis from schizophrenia.... (says i cannot distinguish reality from fiction) well, i can....maybe its just that MY reality is not HER reality....that i have and always have had an imagination...and i like to use it....part of the time

they swear and cannot look outside of themselves....like they have narcisstic tendencies...and i wonder if i do too....i hate to think that way

i ONLY concentrate on myself when theyre around...i dont wanna change who i am....they make me feel like i have to......im willing to change things about me...but thats all and no more.............when they concentrate on me....which is constantly....it makes me feel like im being watched all the time.... heres my question....if i am constantly noticed (i have woken up with someone standing over me) is that really paranoia?



im going through some serious anxiety on top of it all (no wonder right?)

i want to get motivated..i want to do the right thing....id like to go school, to get into college and have fun with my life...to travel and do all these great,wonderful, spectacular things

im a middle class caucasian, i was raised in and reside in suburbia....what am i to do? i have almost no friends..and the close ones i do have problems of their own (ADD)

im a really smart guy, ive been called brilliant, intuitive, creative, even genius by my peers and teachers alike

i have serious problems connecting with people...emotionally, intellectually...connecting.... period


^ ive gone back and forth adding bits and pieces here and there so thats why

Oh can I related to those random thoughts!  I was just about to write myself this morning for that very same problem.  My mind is always going, going, but sometimes these absolutely nonesensicle or unrelated thoughts or "words" just pop into my head and I have to wonder where the heck are they coming from.  I too have had continual dreams/nightmares every single night whereas I used to have the only occasionally.  Depending on what the particular dream is about, it can set my mood (good or bad) for the entire day. I'm riddled with anxiety most of time and I suppose it's part of that but it almost seems like your brain isn't functioning properly when these odd thoughts just pop into your head - it's almost like you're "wired" wrong.  Well it does help to hear that other people have these things I suppose....makes you think you're not completely nuts.  darn this AP disorder.

do you all REALLY hear your names beings whispered and voices? to my recollection ive never experiences an actual auditory hallucination

though as of late...the equilibrium in my inner ear seems to be going off balance...

what could the above signify?

cfckenny, i hope your still posting I'm looking through older posts. I just joined today and I have Never had anyone describe these voices i have before, except my sister and we just assumed we were both a little wacko. I will even awaken w/ them. It's like different characters in a play or tv show i've never heard before talking at the same time and none of it makes sense. ,I've even tried to write it down to no avail. It is CRAZY sounding but true! My psych doc told me it's part of anxiety disorder for some people and he has heard others describe it too...but i didn't believe him:)

ok i use to hear things alot. like of a night when it was quiet i would hear to people in my living room talking to each other but not to me. i could never make out what they were talking about. i would get up and make sure all the tv's were off the radio = everything.

i told my therapist and he said that i was very hyper alert - not paranoid

paranoid - he said is when u think everyone is out to get you and they are all plotting against you.


but you are definately not alone in this
