Anxiety and depersonalization can be really scary, and they can have a big effect on your life.

I think that anxiety can also cause people to be scared that they may have other illnesses when they actually don't. I say this to try to reassure you and not to invalidate you.

Hearing voices is different from hearing your own inner voice or your thoughts. And so while I think that what you're experiencing is distressing and worrying you, the psychiatrist is right in that it isn't psychotic.

Has the psychiatrist offered you any kind of treatment at all for your anxiety?
It's not easy to cope with without some support.

Also wanted to say that anxiety makes depersonalization worse, and depersonalization can cause anxiety. You probably already know that but sometimes it's worth keeping that in mind when one takes over.
