    First off let me say I'm 25 perfectly healthy with no history of mental illness in my family. I'm a waiter and beginning author,stressful job but not that stressful...
    Anyway I started hearing people having conversations in distance a few months ago..figured it was my neighbors ( thin walls in the new place..heard them fuck a few times) but lately I've been hearing my name called..and yesterday I swear I heard someone say "excuse me" but when I turn around no one is there..so I started looking it up.. says schizophrenia..but I'm very doubtful of that.. anyone know anything that might help..or should I just ignore it..It's not like It's really bothering too much to begin with

    your 'awakening' has begun, there are many of us icon_wink.gif

    Synchronicity I
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rZ55EZTExg


    With one breath, with one flow
    You will know
    Synchronicity

    A sleep trance, a dream dance,
    A shared romance,
    Synchronicity

    A connecting principle,
    Linked to the invisible
    Almost imperceptible
    Something inexpressible.
    Science insusceptible
    Logic so inflexible
    Causally connectible
    Yet nothing is invincible.

    If we share this nightmare
    Then we can dream
    Spiritus mundi.

    If you act, as you think,
    The missing link,
    Synchronicity.

    We know you, they know me
    Extrasensory
    Synchronicity.

    A star fall, a phone call,
    It joins all,
    Synchronicity.

    It's so deep, it's so wide
    Your inside
    Synchronicity.

    Effect without a cause
    Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause
    Synchronicity

    Yeah, just check it out at the doctor's. I think the last thing you should be doing is looking up online and fill your head with even more thoughts and worries that you didn't already have.

    The scariest stories I hear about this sort of thing involve someone trying to deal with such voices on their own. Everyone else here who said to see a doctor is right.

    If it helps, being an author who hears voices is probably better than being an accountant or an air traffic controller who hears voices. You might actually find them useful some day. icon_smile.gif

    Only one question: do you ever also SMELL something that shouldn't be there, that no one else smells, sometimes an unpleasant or incongruous odor, something that really doesn't belong in that place?

    OP, read this before jumping to any conclusions about schizophrenia...


    What are voices and who hears them?
    Hearing voices is often thought of as a symptom of a serious mental illness. But research on the experiences of the general population shows that lots of people hear voices, and the majority of them are not mentally unwell. It is a common human experience.

    Hearing a voice when no-one is present with you, or which other people with you cannot hear, is considered to be a hallucination. This does not make it abnormal – it’s just a word for a perception you may have that is not shared by those around you. You may also see things that others can’t see. You may experience touch, smell or taste sensations which you cannot account for in usual everyday ways. Some people may not realise that many other people do not have such experiences.

    People have many different experiences of hearing voices. Here are some examples:

    It’s quite common to hear your name called when there is no-one with you. You may look round to see where the voice came from, and wonder why you heard it, but if nothing else happens you will probably just shrug it off as ‘just one of those things’.
    You may hear or see things as you are falling asleep.
    You may experience the voices as being in your head, or you may feel that they are coming from outside and heard through your ears like other sounds.
    You may believe that you are hearing other people’s thoughts.
    The voices may be louder or more frequent if you are feeling stressed.
    You may experience unkind and threatening voices that tell you to do dangerous or unacceptable things or try to control you.
    You may hear a kind supportive voice.
    Sometimes there may be more than one voice and they may talk or argue with each other.
    Why do people hear voices?
    It is still very common for people to assume that if you hear voices, you must have schizophrenia. And, if you hear unpleasant and disturbing voices and see a doctor about them, you are quite likely to be given a diagnosis of psychosis. Sometimes these are the reasons, but there are many other explanations for voices too.

    Voices as you fall asleep or wake up – these are called hypnogogic and hypnopompic hallucinations, and are to do with your brain being partly in a dreaming state. The voice is likely to call your name, or say something very brief, or you may hear other brief sounds such as a telephone ringing. You may also see strange things, or misinterpret things you can see, such as seeing a coat on a hook as a person standing in the doorway. These experiences usually stop as soon as you are fully awake.
    Lack of sleep
    Hunger – you may hear voices if you are very hungry, or if you have anorexia nervosa and are starving yourself.
    Physical illness – if you have a high temperature, and have become delirious, you may hear voices, and see or say strange things.
    Drugs – you may hear or see things as a result of taking certain street drugs, or as a side effect of some prescribed drugs. You may also have these experiences when you are coming off drugs.
    Bereavement – if you have recently lost someone very close, you may hear them talking to you. You may also feel that they are with you, even though you cannot see them. This experience is very common, and can be comforting, especially in the early days of bereavement.
    Abuse or bullying – if you have experienced abuse, you may hear the voice of the person who abused you, undermining you and ordering you to harm yourself or to do things you know to be wrong. This is especially so if you experienced the abuse in childhood, at an age when you had not learned the coping skills you needed to protect yourself, or you were never given any chance to learn such skills.
    Other traumatic experiences – you may hear voices as a result of other traumas, such as accidents or major natural disasters. You may be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Hearing several different voices may be associated with traumatic experiences, and may also be associated with a dissociative disorder: it may be a way of coping with trauma by separating yourself from it. (See post-traumatic stress disorder and dissociative disorders.)
    Spiritual experiences – some people experience a voice as part of a spiritual experience. You may experience your voice as that of an angel, a mystic or sage. This may be a very special experience for you, and you may feel that it helps you to make sense of your life. Or you may feel that you are possessed by an evil spirit and that is the voice you can hear.
    Mental health problems – you may hear voices if you have a diagnosis of psychosis, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or if you are severely depressed. (See psychotic experiences, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression.)

    If you could see my mind, if you really look deep, then maybe you'll find
    That somewhere there will be a place, hidden behind my comedian face
    You will find somewhere there's a house, and inside that house there's a room
    Locked in the room in the corner you see
    A voice is waiting for me, to set it free, I got the key, I got the key
    Voices, I hear voices
    In my head the voice is waiting, waiting for me to set it free
    I locked it inside my imagination, but I'm the one who's got the combination
    Some people didn't like what the voice did say
    So I took the voice and I locked it away, I got the key, I got the key
    Voices, I hear voices, voices, I hear voices
    Chorus:
    Don't look back, look straight ahead, don't turn away, then the voice it said
    Don't look back, yesterday's gone, don't turn away, you can take it on
    (Solo)
    Voices, I hear voices, voices, I hear voices
    (chorus repeats 3x)
    Voices, voices, voices, voices - don't look back
    Voices, voices

    I wouldn't stress too much if I was you. It's much more common than one would expect. A simple Google search will demonstrate that. There can be a number of explanations beyond the Ghost/Schizophrenia usual suspects. Blaming an annoying poltergeist might seem preferable than some mental illness but the more likely (and mundane) explanation is likely a subconscious trigger. Go talk with a pro and hear what they think.

    If you had an unexplained pain in your leg you probably wouldn't have any problem sounding out a GP so just think of it along the same lines.

    PS I understand schizophrenia manifests itself in the teen years so I think you are safe in that regard if you hadn't demonstrated it then! :-)

    Self diagnosing and reading things online is the worst thing you can do -- tons of premed students end up becoming hypochondriacs at some point in their college career. See a doctor, worst case scenario you deal with a health issue you have.

    The heart is an organ.
    There are cardiovascular illnesses.
    The brain is an organ.
    There are mental illnesses.


    Best case scenario you are overly stressed and it's taking a toll on you. When I was a child I had a really high fever and I saw my 4th grade teacher at the time sitting at my desk in my bedroom; I knew she wasn't literally there but it was creepy.

    They also say if you hear voices outside of your head you may need to seek help. We all have voices inside of our heads to a point -- "did I do that right?", "did I turn off the stove?" etc.

    I recommend seeing a psychologist, social worker with an LCSW, or therapist.

    The brain is an amazing thing and avoid the people saying it's sprits and crap... They probably need to see a psychologist more than you do haha.

    I still remember talking about phantom limbs in my psych class. People who lose limbs can develop the sense that their missing limb is there via plasticity in the brain, it's amazing what the brain can do.

    it's simple, if the voices you hear are outside your head then you have hallucinations

    People often hear voices but they can distinguish between whether it is in your head or you have alternative reality

    I'm not sure but you could be experiencing Hypnogogic Hallucinations, I get them right before I go to sleep, usually its peoples voices and if I took ecstasy at the club then went home and tried to go to bed the voices would be a lot louder to the point that I can't sleep lol. Its apparently natural thing to have and we all get it sometimes, maybe you get the voices because you're tired after work.
