There are also visual (see things that aren't there) and olfactory (smell things that aren't there) hallucinations ... Even some of our dreams can be a subconscience hallucination ...

Sometimes they are triggered by events that are happening in the here and now that are connecting to something from the past - even if we aren't aware of the connection at the time.



ps. Whenever mine happen now, I enjoy trying to figure out their source ... I enjoy the challenge of trying to piece it all together ...

I don't know all that the OP is experiencing, but I'm generally of the mind that if it doesn't bother you (and you're aware they're not real) then no need to worry or medicate.

It is not nearly as bad as what I see, that is not really there.

What exactly is meant by "inside" vs "outside" one's head? Wouldn't a voice inside one's head just be a thought? I constantly have voices in my head; that's part of how I think. I don't think that they're hallucinations...I have heard external voices, music, etc. as well, but it's not nearly as common as the internal stuff. I've thankfully never been traumatized.

I've heard voices a few times. In December I heard a fuzzy voice in gas station store. It was saying disturbing things about children being murdered, I was certain I heard, "evil spirits were responsible for these murders in Kentucky." I was upset like what sick radio program is this guy listening to, and making customers listen to it? Then there was weird electrical stuff like the gas pumps stopped working, some car alarms going off. Within a day or two, the school shooting in Connecticut happened. Now I see a connection I don't know why though. I have some ideas why but it's very confusing.

Interesting!

Here is what it is for me. On the outside, the one that the t is concerned with, is that I hear real voices from actual people, who really aren't there. I will look in the direction at times, but I know there won't be a person there-even though I wish there was, because these are people I want to see.

Then there are the voices inside my head. These are the people I keep a constant dialogue with. I believe this is my way of reasoning through upcoming conversations, what ifs, etc. I can compare it to my son, who also has bp. He reasons out everything with me verbally. I think it is because he is not able yet to handle these conversations in his head, and he is comfortable enough to share with me.

For me, hearing "real" comments around me are something that I know is not real, even though I hear them anyway. Conversations in my head are my way to work out the world.

inside voices are in your head
outside voices are coming from any external source. it can be a real person thats really not saying anything or even something like a plant.

voices inside your head can seem more like thoughts can be loud like if you have headphones on. or a speaker inside your head. one sure thing is if you cant control them and they talk about things that you dont say. especially if they are in diff gender than you. stuff like that.

outside voices are more easily explainable. you can hear sounds or music that isnt there. you can hear phrases or a word (or words). or you can being called.

i have voices both inside and outside of my head. i get outside voices speaking a sentence here and there and my name. lots of mumbling and snippets of conversing. inside its like a loud speaker and they have a constant dialogue most of the day. i do have breaks from them though from time to time. they try to get me to tell them stuff and then theyll tell me to do things. loads of different stuff.

im 22 yr old female and the voices are usually 40 to 50 yr old men. i have no idea why.

I've heard my name called or thought I caught someone out of the corner of my eye, only to turn around to find myself alone. This has happened during an acute mania/severe insomnia period. I think it's common enough, and as you can see, you're not alone
