Do you think other people around you can hear/sense your inner voices?

Hi

I have been getting voices too, not a daily thing. But it does happen maybe every other day If Im out shopping or something. It happens when I'am talking to certain people (shop assistants or random strangers)

I always start to panic a bit when I'am about to anticipate talking to a stranger incase I get voices in my head calling them abusive names like ''you're an ***hole or toss**'' and when I do I always worry if they can hear or sense that I'am doing it to them.

I swear to god, there reaction on there face sometimes looks like shock , like they have heard what I said in my head, I keep telling myself its a coincidence, but too many coincidence's are making me paranoid.

I'm seeing a psyche soon, referral from the doctor. Not looking forward to it:cry:

Does anybody else think that other people near you can hear what you're voices are telling you?

I don't think everyone can hear them but because they are not in my head but to the side of me, I believe some people(psychic maybe?)can hear them. Some people do seem to react to them in a sort of startled way but I may be just imagining this.

My voices are around me but they put thoughts in my head but no one else can hear them. People might sense your talking to yourself depending on how you are reacting to the voices but i would'nt worry to much about it hun:D ...

Hi Icandoit, welcome to the forum! I agree it can be difficult when others are around and you are hearing voices talking about them. These coincidences you speak of, may be a result of your body language, when the voices are talking about others around you. Still it can be upsetting when people seem to react to us and we haven't said anything out loud.

I encourage you to write down as much as possible about your voices and how distressing they are to you and they make you feel like other people can hear your thoughts.

Also if you want check out these threads and see if they are of any help:

Yes... All the time. I still have to convince myself it's not real. Have you ever asked someone if they hear your thoughts? Well I have.. actually alot of people and all I can come up with at this moment is what are the chances everyone is lying to me? Am I that much of a threat there's a conspiracy against me?... I would hope no. This is the best theory I can come up with. As for hard facts... Thought broadcasting is a real bitch!!

Since everyone has a voice hiding away inside them yes they can hear what your voice is saying, the voice will then influence their host to like or dislike you and show emotion.

At my worst I'd always have some part of me believing that others were in some way reacting to what I was hearing. These days when I've got someone over I'm generally distracted enough to not hear the voices so it doesn't really happen anymore.

Probably because there isn't any part of me that still believes any of it is real.
