Voices Have Me Concerned

I'm worried about a possible serious mental health issue. I've never experienced anything like this before. Whenever I try to rest I hear voices as I'm going into a sleep. I also get vivid closed eye visions at the same time. I immediately went and explained what I was dealing with to a walk in mental health clinic. I went through an assessment that lasted about an hour. They said it's normal if it's only when you try to sleep. Stress and anxiety can cause this too. These symptoms vary from one day to the next. I went to another place for a second opinion and I was released with "acute anxiety." This doesn't effect me with my job or other things in life. I do feel stressed about this though.

It does sound like anxiety, mixed with hypno goggy and pompy (cant spell for toffee, but google will soon put you right) type hallucinations. Probably down to stress, god knows we all have enough of that recently

Hi Roam


If you are seriously hearing voices, as you are preparing to settle to sleep, number 1) get professional medical, mental healht assistance, you might need to be on medication, to help control the voices, and to keep the voices down. And at a suitable dose.

Also, try to listening to music late night, or during the evening onwards, prior to going to sleep, that could also help. As long as it's not, hip hop rock, rap, if' it's easy listening, or musicals.


I hope you get better and with help from meds.

Okay kid. Consider the situation in the world right now, briefly. Then you should think it is normal under these circumstances to have the perceptions and experiences you are having. I recommend not getting on drugs, find people that have similar experiences (perferably off line) and build relationships with them. Your not alone, many people are experiencing non-ordinary perceptions and experiences and the fact that many are, makes it normal. Most people don't talk about it because of the stigma and harrasment one experiences when they share. My entire family gas lighted me and I lost a number of friends because they are greedy, in denial, and really don't have love in their heart and want everyone to be just like them.
