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 got this more earlier in my schizophrenia.

I think my Thought Inserter, then, was using uppers, so the thoughts that they inserted into my head had a strange racing quality about them, which affected my thoughts a bit, too.

I have also gotten offensive thoughts inserted into my head. TTI is not a quality person, so this is not suprising, I suppose. But, I prefer my head space to be clean, and mine alone.

I have blocked with random words, with some success, or nonsensical phrases. I couldn't do anything to slow the speed down; I had to wait that out.

I haven't taken medication.

I will never date anyone that uses drugs, due to experiences like this.

Yea when my voices are on uppers they tend to race a lot and it gets more random as the days go on.

Maybe not random but they start to mess up a lot with the delusion's where they dont make any sense. But its okay you dont have to believe me.

Yeap, this is common method and experience within being subject to what's called EH, or electronic harassment, it's like a covert harassment campaign conducted by voyeuristic nutters who may live within your local environment.

The will mob together to cause you embarrassment, humiliation, blackmail or just torture you with the self-talk broadcasting.

TBH it's the prefect showcase for these odd gingers to entertain themselves with their personality disorders. I'll bet most are drug addicts or chavy types.

I've also seen mental health service workers preform the same mobbing and covert harassment stunts out in public whilst you express your right to live. As they have no regard for your well-being or rights to privacy.

I've got some nutters living next door dazzling me every night with some kind of laser blue pen light. Every night for 8 hours there like brainwashed sex offenders or a harassment cult.

Everyway this is what some people experience and think is an mental illness within them.

I have had very similar experiences to yours, what are you calling self-talk broadcasting

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
Thanks for sharing! I feel so depressed sometimes while I’m taking paliperidon. I tried sertraline and trentellix and neither of them worked... how do you feel about Effexor? does it help your depression and flat emotion? Thanks 🙏

I go through exactly what you’ve described. Medication does help immensely but has side effects. Coping with it is hard at times but is easier with medication. But it’s hard when your mind has this reflex to blurt out these sometimes taboo subjects. And trying to control the thoughts only makes them worse. So what I try to remember is to let go and move on no matter what uncomfortable thought pops up. In the end I know where I stand and what side I’m on. The voices can’t do anything to you, they only represent judgement of what you may think or do.
I’ve found that if I focus my attention to the sounds around me, such as the wind or traffic or the water running, for those moments I don’t hear the chatter of the voices until I begin to check to see if the chatter is still there, in which then they begin again. But still it makes for a pleasant break. I can’t say for those who have it more severe…

You can help mediate thought broadcasting by practicing mediation and quieting the internal monologue. I dealt with this for several years and learned to control my thoughts in public.

Nowadays, when I find myself in social circles I either blank my mind or engage in lighthearted personal narrative as if I'm casually conversating with other telepaths. It's been rewarding.

I wish you luck.

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.
Are you sure?

I had a bad time last night with symptoms, intrusive thoughts, and the like. I know it will be better when I just sleep it away. I know how you feel crystal vision. It seems real but it’s not. It’s very unnerving for sure. Especially when you think you have thought broadcasting occurring, which isn’t real.

My thought broadcasting is really bad because of my intrusive thoughts. Gets worse every day. Anything my intrusive thoughts say, people take it literally. That is the most embarrassing and frightening thing. People think I am making my psychotic episodes up. Medication does nothing. I read an article about intrusive thoughts. That thoughts won't harm you. But the people who can hear them will.
The only solution I can see is to live a life where I can say, "I don't care people can hear my thoughts, I'm awesome".
I have a theory. I have read that the brain emits electromagnetic fields. I believe my brain is generating electromagnetic fields at a super human level which acts as a carrier signal for the thought and can be transmitted out into the environment and can be picked up by people who are in range.
I believe brain emf is the clue to figuring out how thought broadcasting works.
