such as schizophrenia?? I constanly fear hearing voices, sometimes perceiving my own thoughts as auditory hallucinations. However, I dont look around to see who said it, I know it came from me.

However, these random thoughts and words that pop into my head for no reason make me nervous, and sometimes panic....and in the midst of the panic attack, feel like im going crazy!!

anyone else?

thx!

A warm welcome to HealingWell. I am so glad to see you join this great forum.

I will just give you some info but I want you to please remember I am not a professional and you need to be evaluated by a physician. yeah

Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder.

People with schizophrenia sometimes hear voices others don’t hear, believe that others are broadcasting their thoughts to the world, or become convinced that others are plotting to harm them. These experiences can make them fearful and withdrawn and cause difficulties when they try to have relationships with others.

That is the medical description of the disorder.  However, from personal experience I have a friend that is Bipolar and she hears voices too.
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a person's mood, energy, and ability to function. Different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe.
 
The good news ~ there are treatments for these disorders.
 
Back to your question....I do not remember ever hearing that anxiety is a disorder that causes the auditory hallucinations or hearing voices.
 
Maybe someone else here has some information re that.
 
Hope this has helped some.

Anxiety may cause many symptoms and as the anxiety escalates I am sure you may have al kinds of "crazy" thoughts to borrow your phrase. tongue

I am here to support you and I see you have another post..............I will read that too.

Warm wishes for a happy day.

This is health anxiety, I would guess. Are you being treated? If no, look into it. There's no sense in suffering. If you are, go back to the doctor and reevaluate your treatment. There must be something that would work better, right?

Hi Yoyoma16!
 
Kitt gave you some great advice about the anxiety causing all kind of fears.  It is something that makes us feel "crazy" but we are not.  We are just normal people that happen to be extra sensitive and dealing with a very difficult disorder with the anxiety.  I wish you the best and hope that you get better :)
 
 
Welcom Ama :)
 
HW is a great place to come to have a great peer support group for your anxiety :)  Please read posts made by other members and you won't feel so alone :)  Anxiety is something that everyone in the world experiences, and some of us go through it really hard because of many factors :)
 
 
I hope you both check out our free online therapy called MoodGYM, a CBT training.  It will help get rid of those stinking Scary/Warpy Thoughts!  Here is the link and nice to meet the both of you :)
