i've always had what i called a constant running dialogue in my head. commenting on what i do, yelling at me for decisions i make, telling me i suck, sometimes coaching me or cheering me on. i always thought it was my "conscience" until i started talking about them in the hospital. apparently it's not normal and often a symptom of bipolar disorder. (i think more specifically schitzo affective disorder, but i'm not sure about that). when i'm really hypersensitive i have this constant *noise* in my head, anywhere from a dull roar to the sounds of millions of people screaming at the top of their lungs. outside noises are amplified tremendously and often downright hurt. (i've never talked about this before with therapists or anything.)

in any case, the voices have never been my own, or of anyone i know, and i think that constitutes "hearing voices." i think they can come from inside or outside of your head, and can be exacerbated by stresses or bad situations.

just my $0.02

glad to hear your paxil has helped the noise, anyway...
