I experience / 'hear' voices/thoughts, I dont know if they are voices or thoughts, I personally think they are thoughts but it would be good to know what you think or if anyone reading this has ever experienced it. Here goes... Its like I'm constantly day dreaming, but have little control over it. Sometimes the thoughts take over and I can just stare into space listening and thinking, sometimes I realise that I have been doing this and I find myself staring at things, and to other people this must look quite weird as if I'm possesed haha. Sometimes the thoughts are interviewing me in my head and justifying things I do. Also depending on my mood, which changes alll the time, my thoughts are 'thinking' or 'guessing' what other people are thinking about me, this tends to be very negative. Oh all this is subconcious if you get what I mean, like I have very little or no controll over it. Has anyone ever experienced this? Is it a sign of starting to hear voices perhaps.. who knows, I know I don't.

At the minute I am being treated for bipolar by my GP but this has not been diagnosed by a professional as many of you will know that getting help of the NHS isn't a particularly easy or straightforward process.

You are entitled under the NHS to ask for a second opinion and request a formal diagnosis from a mental health professional, if that's what you want.

It sounds like you don't have a lot of support or access to services except your GP. It might be an idea to investigate other sources of help and/or support in your area, either by contacting the charities MIND or Rethink (see links below).
