For instance 85% of time you are ok but when in uncomfortable situations or around people you care about you feel panic and sometimes think you heard something negative or bad but for the most part your head is clear. You just feel anxiety and over think things you might of heard internally. The thinking is disorganised but it's only with a few family members.

I call that state semi-voices. I get it sometimes with my internal tinnitus when I am trying to reduce meds, luckily for me it goes away when my meds dosage is stable. It's not real voices because there is only a snatch of something heard, and then a lot of interpretation. Real voices, which I have experienced in the past, are where you genuinely hear longer pieces of speech.

I do hear voices. However I also sometimes get something like you describe when I am exhausted and stressed. You say it happens when you are feeling uncomfortable and feel panic. If it only happens occasionally I wouldn't worry about it.

There is a lot of anxiety of with semi hallucinations. I find myself getting lost in thought but then like I said if I'm around people I don't care about I have a clear head but I just a bit irritable.

I think maybe family members might be having verbal digs at you which are inaudible almost but you hear them and second guess whether they actually said it or not and if you asked them they'd deny it.Are you being gaslighted too?I think the fact that for the most part your head is clear and it is around people when you are uncomfortable or care more about that this happens confirms for me, you aren't hearing voices,just catching on to true feelings that are usually kept hidden.Hope this helps!Nikitax
Not quite Hearing Voices in the Classical sense ... When you do indeed Hear Voices ... these are very distinct individual Voices going on in the background or addressing you and attempting to engage with you ...
Cheerio !!

I call them 'clever' voices, cos you're not really quite sure. It's hard when they attach to individuals. Not family members in my case, but other people. The easiest to identify are the obvious, disembodied voices :)

This is where diagnoses are a nonsense really. You see all kinds of mental distress can cause this, not just psychosis, you can get them in depression too. I would wonder if you should address the anxiety mainly and that will deal with these things you hear. Perhaps some therapy or counselling? Just a thought.

What is gaslighting Nikita - I have heard it mentioned before, but forgotten.

Anxiety is taking over at the moment. A few years ago I felt derealization and actually welcomed it as I felt less anxiety. Now it comes and goes depending on if I've slept well. The anxiety came back worse when I gave up smoking cigarettes and heightens the days after I have been drinking. I find it hard to give eye contact and my thoughts are allover the place. It's a worrying now as it's been 10 years.
