Thought I heard my neighbors' voices talking about me

Yesterday, while I was mowing the lawn, I thought I heard my neighbors' voices talking about me. They were criticizing and laughing at me. I definitely want to get rid of the voices and paranoia. This evening it will have been three days since I took a B complex supplement. Three days is how long it takes for a substance to leave the body. I think the paranoia is from the interactions between the supplement and the medication. Hopefully, I will start feeling better again this evening.

decided when i hear people talking about me in public places, schitzoprenia gets out and people do talk about it and if they want to call it paranoia i'm not going to argue if it helps the benefit claim, i agree i'm not fit for work and with discrinination even less so

That sounds really horrible, my husband used to get this a lot, we moved house a lot before we realised it wasn't actually the neighbours, but voices. Thankfully his medication mainly stops the voices. Has anything changed recently to spark these voices off? My husband finds that stress, alcohol and weed can trigger voices.

and maybe wherever you moved the diagnosis followed, yes i admit it's stress related, my sister claims you notice things more when under stress, my friend said they seem to be able to tell

He didn't have a diagnosis back then, neither of us realised he was hearing voices for a long time and the problems stopped once he started medication. I do admit though that once someone starts behaving differently due to voices/delusions people can start to pick up on it and treat them differently.

i think theres certain real things underlieing what psychiatrists call illness, but psychiatrists are only interested in symptom zapping

HI,


I think, this is mainly the condition of your paranoia. I don't think it's the case of hearing voices.


However, we cannot diagnose you on this forum site, your best bet is to make an appointment, for the cmht, or GP, get a referral, sounds like you need help i wouldn't say immediately, though, urgently as soon as is the phrase I am thinking.

I think your medication and your current new one, are fighting along of the onlanzpaine, and another, and that's probably how, you are not stable, mental health wise, I forgot to check the doses, if they are low, maybe they ought to be increased, one of the meds, anyway.


Could youi try mowing the lawn and if you operate a mp3, an i phone i mean, and hear music through headphones that might help to prevent you seeping, into paranoia levels.


Once again, this isn't the case for hearing voices, it's the case for paranoia, do make an apppointment for your doctor as soon as possible after the weekend, so that they might be briefed, and decide which med help further you need.


Wishing you well.

I say I do me you do you
You can't control what other people do
All you can control is your own head.
People can be very cruel so you need a sheet of armour pass it back to them when they are cruel

What do you mean by this?

I am seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist.

I think your medication and your current new one, are fighting along of the onlanzpaine, and another, and that's probably how, you are not stable, mental health wise, I forgot to check the doses, if they are low, maybe they ought to be increased, one of the meds, anyway.
I will see if my psychiatrist recommends an increase in the dosage of any of my meds.

Could youi try mowing the lawn and if you operate a mp3, an i phone i mean, and hear music through headphones that might help to prevent you seeping, into paranoia levels.
I might try that.

I have an appointment with the psychiatrist on June 4th. So I will see if he makes any recommendations then.

Wishing you well.
Thanks.

I think either the Rexulti or the Escitalopram dosage needs to be increased.

hearing people talking about you or thinking when people are talking,it's about you is i think delusions of reference, one psychiatrist said delusions of reference isn't hearing voices, i think thats one of the differences between american and british psychiatry

Hi Savadpeas,


I am just touching base to catch up, it's been a while, how is your voices problems now, and have you been seen by a doctor during this time, you were wondering that either medication of yours, might have to have been increased?

How is your mental health of voices in general now, have you tried to listen to music, while you are in your garden, at alll?


Best Wishes,


Natalie.
