i have been hearing voices since i was a kid. the kind that mocks and sounds evil, laughing taunting... but i never thought of it as psychotic or anything like that because i have always ignored the voices and thought of it like it was just some part of childhood. for the later part i thought i outgrew it since it stopped for am not sure how long. but when i turned 23 i began experiencing stuff which are making me think that i'm on the edge or totally going off the deep end. i have become insecure and emotional among other bad things. started with this one particular night. was lying on my bed then the voices suddenly came again. a soft hum at first. i told myself that i was way too grown up for the thing and that i can deal with it without ignoring it. i told myself too, that it was maybe the right time for me to face my fear so i just let it come and listened to it. it was laughing then. i couldn't recall what it was saying but i just knew there was a whole ***l of a lot he was firing away at me. the the pitch became lower but louder every minute and it became too late for me to ignore it. i kept telling myself to ignore it just ignore it! but i couldn't anymore. i kept pacing around my room. i didn't want to go out of the room for the fear that i might do something bad. i felt it and i knew i could do something really really bad. has been a year now and i still worry about it. there are a lot of times when i think i couldn't trust myself anymore. am i losing it?

  • it sounds like schizophrenia cause it usually comes on at a persons life when they are in there twenties. it also sounds like bi-polar disease. my girlfriend had the same problem hearing the voices and telling her she was no good and telling her to do bad stuff. she saw hew doctor last week and prescribed geodon for bipolar and it is working great. just go see a doctor and good luck with that.
