When I'm falling asleep... - March 10th 2009, 10:59 PM

I hear things. Something says my name. I start to fall asleep, then it's voice wakes me up. I think it's a spirit, but I'm not sure. It scares me. I talked to my psych about it and she said it's normal and the medicine will help soon. I just wanna know if I'm alone in this. Does anyone else experience this when they fall asleep?

I hear strange things at times. I don't think it's just inside my head either...

Sometimes i've heard a voice calling me when i've been trying to get to sleep. I did have one scary experience when I was trying to fall asleep and I heard a voice calling me but I felt paralysed, but I honestly just think it's probably just my mind playing tricks on me as that was a one off. It's good that you've told your psych about this, it's the best thing that you could've done

I sometimes hear or see people when I'm about to go to sleep. I've found that trying to be friends with them helps.

Well, I do know that if it's very loud, or you suddenly twitch and wake up, like you've just leaped off a cliff or something...it's your body waking you up because you've stopped breathing.

I've heard strange voices when almost asleep at times, but they're just from my insomnia acting up.

On Wikipedia it says this:

Quote:
Hypnagogic imagery is often auditory or has an auditory component. Like the visuals, hypnagogic sounds vary in intensity from faint impressions to loud noises, such as crashes and bangs (exploding head syndrome). People may imagine their own name called or a doorbell ringing. Snatches of imagined speech are common. While typically nonsensical and fragmented, these speech events can occasionally strike the individual as apt comments on – or summations of – their thoughts at the time. They often contain wordplay, neologisms and made-up names. Hypnagogic speech may manifest as the subject’s own ‘inner voice’, or as the voices of others: familiar people or strangers. More rarely, poetry or music is heard.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypnagogia

I guess this means that it is common to hear voices, when falling asleep, or even make up conversations! Well done on going to your psych, becasue if it is something abnormal, it can be quickly sorted

Thanks. Well something weird happened in class the other day. I was kinda falling asleep, but not really. I was fading in and out. Anyway, I heard someone shout, "Hey!" No one sad anything, though. It was completely quiet. So I was like....ok? I was scary. It's following me to school now. Ahh!!

I used to do that. I'd hear whispers right in my ear, and they sounded very creepy and like they were in a different language and it'd always happen as I was drifting. They'd make me jump and I wouldn't be able to breathe properly, I'd get SO scared. It's happened two or three times in the past but hasn't happened to me in ages.

Yeah! Sometimes it sounds like a bunch of gibberish and I can't understand it.

If it's while you're tired then it's not something too worry about too much. The other times it could be due to a variety of things, such as you're thinking about something, hear something in the background by someone you don't recognize, etc... .

For me, I tend to get quite a lot of visual hallucinations and some auditory, although I can usually understand them pretty well. They don't scare me, they just sometimes act like a pain in the ass that tends to go away.

Yeah. I used to hear voices talking to me bout 2 years ago. I thought they were ghosts trying to posess me. It was scary. Also, I think some kind of voices r coming back. Cause the other day I started seeing shit but I didn't kno if it was there or not (like worse than usual. I took sum pills cause I wanted it to stop... They're meant to stop pain n this is pain so I thought it would work but it didn't.)
Oh. N the other day I heard someone say somthing really random (forgot it) n I got a panic attack cause it seemed more real than nething.

... Look in your other thread you made. This is completely inconsistent.

Not to you, to puala. He/she made another thread and what they said here was the opposite of what they said there.
