I deal with this symptom from time to time. I feel like people can hear my thoughts telepathically and are commenting on them verbally out loud. It's mixed with intrusive racing thoughts. I'll get random offensive embarrassing inappropriate insultive statements come in my head and repeat uncontrollably and on top of thought I feel they're being broadcasted out as they are formed and it becomes a very awkward situation mentally for me. Does anyone else have it like that? If so how do you deal with it? What are coping mechanisms and have anti psychotics helped?

I am exactly the same!

I get intrusive thoughts and they bring me anxiety because people can hear them.

My thoughts are always being broadcasted.
Makes me insane because I end up overthinking badly.

I had the same exact problem! What helps me is I just ignore it all, the intrusive thoughts I know are not mine so I just let them flow and don't pay attention to them anymore in fact sometimes when its so far out there saying something about me I tend to laugh nowadays. Just remember no one hears them other than the voices that are messing with you.

Yes. I have done my research and learned that part of it has to do with our brain chemistry. I read that high dopamine levels contribute to the ocd intrusive thoughts. I've learned through my struggle with substance abuse that dopamine agonist drugs like methamphetamine and cocaine have tended to make my intrusive thoughts worse. Im relieved to learn that there is actually a neurochemical based cause for this and that it can be fixed with medicine. Ive been taking Olanzapine (Zyprexa) as although it's an "atypical" antipsychotic it still lessens the amount of dopamine in my brain and it's been helping with the intrusive racing thoughts. They have me on Effexor for depression but I started getting sick on it. I think I'm going to try asking the doctor about an SSRI to help augment the antipsychotic and also to aid in my chemical depression. It's a relief to here that others can't hear the thoughts. Because they would highly offend people and cause conflicts and that's part of the high anxiety surrounding the episodes along with the personal discomfort of the thoughts themselves that makes it hard to relax and enjoy my day with all the extra filler running through my brain. Thanks for the replies and support all of you

Hi, Hope your keeping well, could I ask if what you experience is a type of self-talk live streaming or covert broadcasting.

As I to have this and find it interesting.

It's like I get really offensive mean inappropriate unwanted thoughts stream in my head non stop and I can't block them out and on top of that I feel like people around me can hear them and they comment on them verbally. Or I feel like people from a distance insert thoughts in my head telepathically

Never had it but I can assure you that NO ONE- NOT ONE PERSON has ever heard your thoughts and they never will. I promise you. It is not possible and you cannot hear anyone elses thoughts. It is not happening.

It's rigged against us. Only when we suffer in misery does it all fade to noise.

It is totally true! Now there are times when I thought something out loud through my mouth and in that case it could be heard because I friggin said it out loud!!

I have read that thinking words in your head can cause subvocalisations in the part of the brain that causes speech and with schizophrenia they can sound like external voices.

Everyone has a mental critic that reacts to a primary thought but with schizophrenia it can run riot with voices.
