> My therapist says not to pay too much attention to what you experience as you wake up or fall asleep.

Same thing mine says. But sometimes I hear the voice calling my name when I'm not falling asleep or waking up. I'll just be sitting, say, on the couch, and I'll hear my name being whispered or said. I'll look up and no one is there. My therapist has confimed that I am not schizophrenic. She believes all of this shadow and name hearing business has to do with the PTSD.

You can hear the tones and cadences and sometimes almost make out a word, but you really can't understand anything? Like that.

Sometimes it's like that, but usually it's a pretty clear calling of my name.

> I think it's just some sort of discharge. My brain plays back all the noise it heard during the day so it can quiet down enough to go to sleep.

Thats a good theory, makes sense to me.
