Question About Hearing Voices

Can you look into your own eye's in a mirror and not move your eyes when hearing a voice?

Yes, I can look into a mirror and not move my eyes when my voice is speaking.

Medication might have something to do with it, without medication my voice could move my eyes or at least strongly suggest where to look. My voice could also make me blink and stimulate tear ducts which was very annoying until I started taking a higher dose of Sertraline.

I think you look certain ways when you hear the voices, when it's natural. I think we are telling ourselves something. We can know ourselves better this way.

Yes, I can look directly into a mirror without moving my eyes whilst hearing voices. :) It's interesting though that our eyes would naturally move, because we are in communication with something. Sometimes in public I find myself making facial expressions or laughing at something a voice has said, it makes me look pretty strange!

I was just remembering a while back when I looked into the mirror and saw Mateo from All My Children standing next to me in the mirror. It was when I was watching it a lot and not getting out of bed much. I saw his lips moving but I couldn't hear what he was saying. It was so weird. I thought I was able to communicate for a moment but I know it was just a version of me when schizophrenia ruled my life.

I sometimes get a faraway look in my eyes and pose comcentration when voices are speaking.
