Hey, so this all started when i was sick about three weeks ago-i had some cold and i took a medicine and i started hearing voices as i went to bed at night. I feel like I've heard them before as i was growing up i just cant remember them clearly. But anyways the voices didn't really scare me much, i thought they were interesting. I even got to the point where i would take a nap during school and channel them so i could hear them. I could also influence what they said, and that is the only time i could remember what they said. I thought about someone that i'm not particularly fond of and a guys voice said destruction, and then i thought about one of my guy friends and it was a girl screaming out saying that "I don't want him"-her talking about she doesnt want him in my life(?) or something like that. Then my friends joked around one day about skezephernia and thats when i got scared. So we asked one of my dad's friends who was a doctor and he said it was because of the medicine i was taking-apparently it was narcotic so i stopped taking it and for a few days i stopped hearing them but recently I've started hearing them again, at first i thought it was because i had been getting sick again so i took a dose of the previous drug that was narcotic and made me hear the voices, knowing that i could deal with them now, but that was last week and i'm still hearing them. THe only difference is they aren't yelling at me anymore, which is definitely a plus, and occasionally i'll hear and kind of see something happen. I know i'm not dreaming but i can kind of see whats happening as the sounds are going on. For example, last night there was a black briefcase or something being slammed on a table twice and i knew what happened. I don't know how to explain it but oh well. I definitely still hear the voices i just cant remember them which bothers me because i want to know what they said Last night when i heard the brief case there was a lady who commented about it afterwards but of course i don't remember. I've told my parents about it but i think i am making it up. Which that doesn't bother me either-its life, and they probably think im just overexxagerating, which i know im not. I told my teacher i heard them while i was praying at night and they would throw my focus off and id start seeing what i was praying about and she mentioned that it may be the devil trying to get to me so the last couple nights i made myself stay awake while i was praying and i still heard them. Please let me know if you guys have any insight!!!

First rule out the physical and mental, then go to the metaphysical.... after you know you aren't sick physically or mentally. Could be nothing more than a hormone imbalance and at your age, it's very likely...

Sounds like it could also just be Hypnagogia - which is a completely normal thing to experience especially while on the verge of falling asleep and/or waking up.  Some people hear snippits of conversations or names, some people see things. Some people experience both.
The medicine you were taking could have possibly intensified it if this is the case.

I'll check it out but i really don't think I'm sick. You guys are telling me to see a doctor but the thing is they aren't bothering me, i just want to know why. and i guess it may be the Hypnagogia, which i'll look at in a second, but i'm not sick-they aren't telling me to kill myself or anything of that sort.

If the voices aren't bothering you that much then I'd suggest just listening in.. It sounds to me like your experiencing something like Clairaudient Hypnagogia, which is nothing to worry about.. I experience this from time to time with Meditation, so when voice do come I actually find it very interesting, and not disturbing in any way.. Sometimes it's very interesting and insightfull to hear these things.. Sometimes ot can be down-right hillarious.. The seeing (briefcase) is i believe part of the Hypnagogia. That can get very interesting, but is nothing to be afraid of.
If it bothers you, talk to a doctor.. But I wouldn't stop taking any medications on anyones advice other than your Doctor.

Oh, and welcome to UM!

This is dead on.

A couple of questions.

How much video games are you playing?

How are you seeping? Are you staying up late at all?

Are there other stresses in your life?

You should have your parents have a sleep study done. My guess is that somehow you have low iron obsorbtion. But your regular doctor may not know this the neurologist will. Most likely you will end up on a liquid iron supplement.

Have a sleep study done. Tell your parents you are haveing hypnagogic hullucinations, and you need to see a doctor for a sleep study. Your sickness and consequent medication may have thrown something off.

Don't wait.

In the mean time, if your visions are disturbing you, you are welcome to pm me or post here, and I will help you work through them.

Yes, I do play a good amount of video games, i usually stay up pretty late, and im not really stressing much. Its finals but the tests aren't stressin me out much. I told my parents today and they don't think anything of the voies -they think I'm fine so i guess we'll see where it goes from here.

Ok... This is part of the problem the late nights and video games is messing with your REM sleep. Especially if it's been going on for a while. It's starting to catch up with you. I suggest you make an effort to put the games away much earlier and make a habit of going to bed earlier.... Getting a good 3-5 mile or more run in every day will help you a lot aswell. If it persists or gets worse, you may need to still see a sleep specialist.

Are you over weight at all?

Hi,

I am telepathic. Your story truly resonates with me.

I like the idea that you choose to channel these voices. There is no need to be fearful or offended by the beliefs of others.

My question is "what exactly would you like to know about this?"

Thanks,
John
