Do you hear voices in your head?
Yeah, I do. I 'hear' my own thoughts which might run something like this: 'Gee, I really like that dress. But we're really low on cash right now. Well, I won't get it. But I love the colour. No, I really won't get it.'
But I also 'hear' (that's the last time I'll put that in quotes for you) other voices in my head. Sometimes they are talking to me, or relevant to the situation at hand. Sometimes though, they're not - it's like eavesdropping on someone, or catching pieces of a TV show when you're doing something else. Occasionally I even hear discussions between other people, so it's like hearing a conversation. To me, all the voices are fairly distinct, although sometimes they go into what I think of as 'neutral' which means I can't figure out who they are.
I thought that this was normal, before. It also didn't used to happen so much because I wasn't as aware of people and didn't try to listen for them. Most of the time it feels very natural, but some days I do get tired out and really grumpy and long for silence. If I get silence for too long, I start to worry.
I also feel feelings that aren't mine, which is harder to distinguish and understand. Usually they aren't related to anything I see in front of me and have a vaguely... untrue feeling to them. It's hard to explain, but it's like a paler version of a real feeling. But until the last year and a half or so, I thought those were my feelings, and that I was just nuts.
And finally sometimes I get a whole flash, or a shift in perception, where I see/hear/taste/smell/feel a piece of memory really strongly that is also not related to anything near by that I can see. I interpret this as getting information from someone else. .
