Everyone has moments like that at least a couple times in their lives, but for those with mental illnesses, it’s almost daily. Sounds like a sign that you’re suppresing certain emotions or traumatic memories that need to be released. A lot of healing comes in processing and making sense of past memories. Don’t rush in too fast, but don’t avoid it entirely either.

So I've had this thing happen to me since I was like 12 (I'm 23 now) and I know that it sounds strange and dumb but every once in awhile I'll be thinking about something normal like for example in my mind I'll be like "I wonder if my room would look pretty painted lavender" no real emotion to it or anything.. No anxiety or bad feelings.. Not even really happy ones. I'm JUST thinking to myself what it would look like and then suddenly my thoughts in my head go from being a normal tone to me screaming every word unable to make my thoughts go back to my normal tone in my head for several minutes.. I don't understand it. I'm not yelling aloud.. Its just me screaming "I wonder if my room would look good painted a plum purple or just a lavender paint ". Honest I don't know why it happens..

I am experiencing the same. I know it's not an hallucination, because it's only a thought, but its so strong that it seems like I'm actually going crazy.

I have this exact same thing! I was working the other day at my dads job and I was just sitting on the computer listening to some music and suddenly everything I thinking about started to scream in my head and I couldnt make it stop. For example: I was thinking of going to grab a coffee and it yelled in my head *GO GRAB A COFFEE!*. I have this experience only maybe once in a month and it doesnt last for long maybe just 10-20minutes when I cant think clearly. Its not like disturbing me or anything its just scary when it happens.

Hi, I’m 18 and I’ve had a similar thing going on for at least a few months. I will hear my inner voice begin to scream, usually things like “you should kill yourself, you’re disgusting, etc “. It lasts for a few minutes where I can’t do anything but curl up in a ball and sometimes cry. It is very distressing and I can never distract myself, I feel very guilty that I am unable to change my thought patterns to healthy ways of thinking. It happens at least once a week.

I dont know if this is the same thing but I will be going about my day and I'll get the same thing. But it's almost like people are screaming in my ears but no one is there......

So, I thought I was crazy till I read this post and all of the replies. I have epilepsy, so I thought maybe this feeling (screaming, nostalgia, déjà vu, etc.) was an epileptic aura or something, but now I realize it's not. I wish I could understand why this happens, because it really makes me uncomfortable. Quick question for you guys: if you're reading something while one of these episodes happens, does it almost seem like you're reading all caps? That's what just happened to me a few minutes ago.

I hear myself screaming every day. Some days are more quiet than others, but it's fairly consistent. Haven't quite found out how to calm it down yet. It feels like it's coming up from my chest to my throat to my mind and it can blank out every other thought I have. I'm stressed, depressed, been drinking a lot as of late. I'm still here though. Hopefully if any of you guys have it this bad, you're holding on too.
