~Voices~ - March 27th 2018, 09:02 PM

For the past few years I've been hearing muffled voices. Every now and then a ringing will pop into my head and ears, and I tend to hear slight static noises.

The past few weeks these occurrences have been getting worse. I've been hearing the voices more clearer, the static seems to draw on for a few hours rather than minutes, and the ringing gets louder.

I usually hear the voices at night. About a week ago I heard a bunch of laughter. It was a few guys, a lady, and about two or three kids. Kind of creepy too.

The other night I heard a lady and a guy talking about me, not entirely sure if it was good. I just kept hearing them say my name and questioning whether to wake me up or not.

Then last night I heard a child-like voice (extremely high pitched and annoying) say, "Wake up Aiyannah!" I wouldn't answer and tried to ignore it. The voice would then continue to try to get me to answer, usually just saying things like "You need to wake up! Sleeping all night is boring Aiyannah."

I have talked to my friends, and one of them believes I may have schizophrenia, but I don't really know. I mean I've never been diagnosed with anything, but I suppose it makes sense. Any other ideas to what it could be?

Hello Aiyannah,
As someone with schizophrenia myself, it can be tough to say. Hearing voices can be a symptom of schizophrenia along with many other diagnoses such as bipolar in a manic stage. Do you suffer from any other symptoms as well? While I'm not allowed to diagnose you, it could help your primary care doctor or psychiatrist to better help you. I would suggest to write down anything you think would be important for them to know.

Hearing voices is something that won't go away on its own. I would suggest getting help right away otherwise it might get worse from my own experience. I wish you the best. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

I actually haven't seen anyone yet. My parents are searching for counselors, so I haven't talked to a counselor yet. However I did talk to a lady who made an appointment for me to see a psychiatrist and did point out the voices I hear. I do not know what she did with the information. I don't really know what else could be considered a symptom. Sometimes my surroundings will start to warp and zoom out, like looking into a long hallway. Then everything will suddenly go to normal.

My mother thinks I may be bipolar or something because my father is bipolar. I don't really think I am though.

Writing things I consider important does seem like a good idea for when I start talking to someone. I'll keep that in mind~

Hello Aiyannah,

What you are experiencing really ought to be discussed with a therapist because it is unwise to self-diagnose. First, if it is possible, talk to a parent who is closest to you and find a time when it's quiet so you are not interrupted.

Now, it happens that one of my younger cousins has dissociative identity disorder. She has had it for some time and it's not out of control and her parents are very understanding of her. Dissociative identity disorder is something you could check out and then go from there.

Wishing you all the best,

Belle

Hey. If you're hearing voices, I suggest talking to someone that can help. It doesn't have to be schizophrenia; tons of people hear voices without any other underlying conditions. But again, I would definitely talk to someone just in case it is in fact part of a larger issue. You also mentioned zooming in and out. That could be related to the voices, but I would also look into whether it could be an eye problem; it's a symptom for a few different eye disorders. Whatever it is, hope you figure it out~

Hey there,

As we aren't professionals then none of us can diagnose you. Hearing voices can be caused by all sorts of mental health issues ranging from schizophrenia, bipolar, DID but also physical things like tinnitus or hypnogogic hallucinations (if you find these noises happening just before or after sleep).

It's good that you are getting yourself checked out and hope to connect with a professional soon

Yeah, I'm hoping to talk to a professional soon. Just don't know when I'll be able to. I really hope it isn't an eye problem, since my eyes are already bad to begin with. I don't really feel it is an eye problem since my eye doctor hasn't seem anything alarming recently, but I'll be sure to bring the zooming up with my eye doctor.
