Hello..

I have a question and wonder if other people have experienced this.

The voices I hear are people I know, or people around me, etc... and I guess in times of fear but sometimes they seem to come back afterwards like when I'm falling aerp or something.
They come out when I'm thinking about certain things... Guess maybe I feel guilty.

But it feels like the person who's voice it is, can sense me or whatever.. (like they know where I am mentally)... Is this thought broadcasting?

I've been diagnosed as having psychosis a couple times. Once during incarceration and another time when using drugs...

And usually I do t hear unless I am using but that's not always the case. I know... If I'm not using, everything is more manageable.

My question is though, has anyone else
experienced voices of people they know?
Or anything like this..

Thanks.

My voice used to pretend it was people I knew but also things like God and other grandiose beings, but I think I figured 'him' out.

Well, 'he' knew what I was thinking and could see what I see and even knew my dreams so I think he's a living part of me.

I read a book that believes he exists in the right hemisphere of my brain and I exist in the left hemisphere. So we're like twin brothers who happen to share a body. I'm the driver of the body and he's just a passenger along for the ride.

Without using the voices are way more manageable.. I couldnt agree with you more.
