    Well whenever I am around people I think I hear voices telling me to leave. I have never liked being around people but recently it's getting worse and worse. I don't know if I actually hear stuff or I am just making it up. Also I've been really angry and scared for no reason. I just wake up mad and scared. I don't have a close relationship with anyone and it's kinda embarrassing as well. I am scared of talking to someone about this.
    It sounds like paranoid schizophrenia to me go and talk to your doctor see what they can do.

    Hi. I think it is really important to go and see your GP and explain everything. Then if need be you can be referred on. The reason I am saying this is because I was diagnosed with Social Phobia when I was 28. I am now 48. The psychiatrist told me the condition could have been treated if I had gone to him earlier. [I think I developed it around age 15]. But he said it should have been treated while I was still in my late teens and early twenties when my brain was still developing. He said as a 28 year old my personality was set and there was nothing he or anybody could do to help me. He said I will have the condition for the rest of my life, which I do have. I was the only dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris who used to go straight home at 3 in the morning after the show. Everyone else used to go over the road to an all night cafe and chill and socialise. I did once. I hated every moment of it and couldn't wait to leave. But I didn't know at the time I was different. I just thought I was shy. I don't know how old you are, but if it is a condition that can be treated ,from what the psychiatrist told me, there is only a few years this can be done, if it is anything like Social Phobia and the way it affects the brain. Don't leave things too late like I did. Good luck !!
    Complete ********. Phobias are potentially curable even in old people.

    Did he suggest any coping mechanisms? Could you try seeing a different GP in the same practice?

    He didn't do anything. I don't know if I will be able to speak to anyone, anytime soon because it took me ages to actually convince myself to speak to my gp and it was very hard to describe everything.

    As I said before, try writing this all down . The GP can only work with what you give them. I know it's difficult, but for your own long-term health, please get your feelings down on paper; then show him/her that.

    I often find writing **** down helps - when I saw my GP about it, I didn't even say anything, just made him read the lyrics. He took it seriously then

    Please do give it another go, taking in written notes with you. I find it hard to vocalise stuff too but honestly, sometimes they do take it more seriously when it's written down. It's somehow more stark and worrying that way :eek:

    It is sad that the GP you saw wasn't willing to listen properly but it's worth trying all the GPs in your practice. Sadly with the NHS, perseverance is the key, even if we feel like giving up :sadnod:

    Sounds like a good idea :yes: If you have any questions about voice hearing, do feel free to ask me here or to PM me (won't tell anyone who you are, dw!). I've heard voices for over 20 years now, from the age of 5 onwards :yes:
    :0 Isn't voice hearing a potential symptom of mental illness?

    I've been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, depressive type. Put crudely, it's a combination of both schizophrenia and bipolar :headfire: You can read more about it here, if you're interested: http://www.mind.org.uk/information-s.../#.V6XnMrgrK1s

    The diagnosis is somewhat under review atm :yes: Voice hearing is my main symptom :yes:
