Is it normal or okay to be able to hear your own voice? Not a thought... like literally me talking to myself in my head and telling me stuff. Lately it's like my own voice in my head telling me to give up on everything and that I wont be here by the time my birthday comes. I don't know what to do or how to tell my cpn or cmhn

Hi Louise

Not sure what you mean. Is it like your voice but you are not consciously having that thought yourself? Does it seem like the voice is coming into your head from another source?

Some people hear external voices, others hear voices in their head, some both. I have heard of someone hearing a voice that sounded like their own voice.

Does the voice feel like it's coming from inside or outside of your head?
I'm sorry you're having this distressing experience. I do think it would be a good idea to try to discuss this with your CPN if you can pluck up the courage - not that it's necessarily a sign of something bad, but they may be able to help work out what's going on for you.

It feels like I'm listening to myself from say the other side of the room. I don't even know if any of this makes sense :'( It's so horrible

I do believe this is normal amongst us vounrable people struggeling mentally... But I recon it to be a part of some kind of psycosis (=confution).

I have experienced like if God was constantly and intensly tourmenting me with his voice, that is I believe to be my own thoughts been so intens as to me concieving it as "The voice of God". In any case it is a terrible experience to me...I was admitted to hospital, and after a good night sleep with a good portion of sleeping pills, I recovered - and left the hospital the next day.

The voice was gone, but I still was very confused. The end of the story was that I decided to return to full medication - and now I believe myself to be completly recovered.

I hope you will not feel you are alone in this phenomena. And that you consider closely your options concerning medication, and that you contact medical personell at once if you are experiencing that the voices/confution spinns totaly out of control.

Hope you like this site. It is a terrific forum for mutual help amongst mentally ill, and I like to think we are all friends. Common destiny, common comfort.

Best of luck!:)

I am sorry you are having this, Louise, and that the voice is saying things that are so upsetting. I have voices that can be very distressing sometimes. I do think that you should talk to someone about it. Remember too that you don't have to pay attention to the voice or believe it or act on what it says.

Why don't you have a look in the Hearing Voices forum and the information there, it can be very helpful.

I'm already on Sertraline, Quetiapine & Nitrazepam.

And I think it's difficult because Ive never experienced anything like this before.

Ohhh this damn phone I swear I clicked on that forum! "/

I have my own voice as well as many others. Don't be afraid of it. It's thinking, though I know that it feels more separate than that, it is still thinking. Give the voice some kind words. It's fear, not truth. love D x

Hey louise,

i might relate.... months ago when i was in a worse state-of-mind than now and i looked in the mirror i would in a way see a different side or different type of me and it made me scared whenever i looked at my reflection in the mirror and i would sometimes say malicious things to myself but it wasnt me, but another side of me. Is this like yourself?

Well over the years after developing The Voices I have been able to develop my own voice within my head that I am now able to talk to myself in my head rather having to do it externally through my mouth ... This way I am also able to talk to the Voices directly within their virtual world ... it is interesting to observe the effects of this ability as this confuses the hell out of the Voices for many a time !!!

Cheerio !!!
