    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.

    i know how hearing voices can be scary but leaving it to get worse will only make you more ill. i was embarassed to tell anyone and eventually it all got on top of me. it is best to get help as soon as you can. make an appointment with a gp and explain how you've been feeling. while it can be scary to admit what is happening to you, try to tell them everything that you have been experiencing so that they can help you as best they can

    Seconded on the 1st reply. go to the gp, and if nothing comes of it, ask for a referral to speak with a Councillor or the like. I'm not one to mince words on this stuff so, absolute worst case you've got schizophrenia or a tumor. Best case, in my armchair-psychologist's opinion, is an anxiety disorder. But really though, I'm not a doctor, and they are the one type of professional equipped to diagnose and help treat what you're going through, so I'd really suggest seeing one! They're trained to be respectful and non-judgemental, so try not to worry about any of that

    I thought I heard a voice at night when I was really young. It kept saying "doom," in a threatening voice, and I didn't like it. I eventually found that I could control the voice... it would read anything I was reading, and then as long as I could keep my mind focused on forming thoughts as if I were going to speak or write something, I was fine and the voice was compliant. It would happen whenever everything was quiet. I would hear a strange, constant tone start in my ear, followed by the voice. Music, television, or conversation were enough to stop it from happening, and it tended to appear whenever I felt anxious and there was no sound. So I just started leaving the lights and television on all the time until I got older and it stopped happening.

    If your situation is anything like mine, the reason you're hearing a voice telling you to leave when you're around people is because you feel unwelcome/scared on some level of the situation. You may actually be hearing your own inner dialogue as an external voice because you feel overwhelmed.

    Still, if you can't gain any control over it yourself and it keeps getting worse, you might need to see a doctor.

    Hi,

    Maybe try keeping a diary of what exactly happens when you hear these voices (how you experience them - ears or inside head -, what they say, etc.) and what you are doing when they occur, and how long they last for. As has been said, it could be something like (social) anxiety, or something else. Either way if it's causing distress or making you uncomfortable, you shouldn't hesitate to go and talk to a GP about it. Better to catch this kinda thing - whatever it may be - early on :yes:

    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:

    Well, there's always valium. Or xanax. Talk to your doctor about diazepam *serene voice straight from an american pharmaceutical ad*. GPs are unlikely to prescribe it though, unless your persuasive skills are excellent. Or you can just. YOU KNOW. There's a will, there's a way.
    I'll maybe throw some words in but I AM NOT VERY GOOD AT PERSUADING PEOPLE. I'll go with the flow

    Sucks to be you! Just kidding, don't worry, I'm sure you'll manage. Use your tongue. To talk to the doctor, of course!
