It's dinner time and I'm too lazy to want to go out and eat. But I'm kind of hungry, so I guess it'll happen. Reluctance may have something to do with having to have discussion about psychiatrist at dinner, however. No! I want to bury it in a hole and pretend it doesn't exist. *shoves fingers in ears* Lalalalalalalalala...

And oh my god, I'm making so many typos. It's weird. I spell things wrong and think they're right but they aren't. >_< Like trying to spell 'love' as 'lice'. Uh... what? *hyperhyperhyper*

Here's a serious question for you all: do you ever hear voices, but are not diagnosed with schizophrenia or any mental disorder that would cause something like that? Because lately I've started hearing weird things... music that isn't there, voices, etc. I don't tend to hear things when I'm being active or talking to friends, but if I lay down and actively try to relax I start to hear people talking. They never say more than a sentence or two, they're nobody I recognize, I don't see any faces, they don't tell me to do things or talk to each other. Mostly they say innocuous things like "Where did I put my keys?" or "Well, this is how I see it..." None of them sounds familiar, nothing feels like a memory. They aren't characters. It's just random people. Talking. In my head.

I wish they'd shut up.

I hear things occasionally. It happened quite a bit last summer, actually, a month or so after my OD. People calling my name, hearing the front door open and close when no one was in the house etc. Sometimes it isn't even distinctive, I'll simply hear a sound, and get that feeling when you know someone's speaking to you, but you haven't heard what they said, or simply something catching my attention but just being on the cusp of hearing.

Sometimes it'll happen in a visual context as well - I'll go to pick up a coffee mug which isn't there, but I could have sworn I saw a few seconds ago.

The psych said it wasn't anything to worry about; it was just one of the effects of stress.

You too? about the voices? I hear the funniest things..

"I'd like a bagel with hummus and peanut butter." and etc.. t'is a funny feeling. In class, falling asleep, I hear things like that.

I've started wishing they'd talk about more exciting things, really. Or make soothing ocean noises. Because it's kind of hard to sleep with somebody talking about random stuff...

Hummus and peranut butter, eh?

White music! and yes.. hummus and peanut butter. Can't be TOO good of a combination..

Lisa's official diagnosis is bipolar and borderling but she used to get the voices all the time and always when she was relaxing or trying to fall asleep - just random stuff, like scrolling your way around cable stations on TV, stuff in russian or japanese or just random sound effects, snippets of conversations. Nothing talking to her or telling her anything, just random audio.

They ended up putting her on pills for schizophrenia which killed the voices, but her doctors all said they hadn't ever heards of such a thing... voices that don't talk TO you, random noises and stuff. Pheagh. Shows what the doctors don't know. v_v

Shows what the doctors don't know.

Exactly. I've stopped blindly trusting doctors and have become irritatingly skeptical due to the fact that I've been subjected to so much unnecessary treatment because they don't seem to know what the hell is going on most of the time. I suspect that some of their degrees came out of Cracker Jack boxes.

On occasion, perhaps . . .
Sometimes I hear music, songs . . . but never people or voices. >.>; Neat about it, though, my subconscious can teach me song lyrics that I swear I've never heard before. Spooky. o.O
