I just thought of another instance of not necessarily hearing voices, but more of an annoying internal dialog. It happens alot when I'm driving. I imagine I'm talking to a friend from high school who lives in east tx as if she was sitting beside me. I describe to her everything I see and what's significant about them, "that's where I got my first ticket", or "I remember when that building wasn't even there". I don't know why I always imagine the same friend who I haven't been in touch with for a while. But sometimes I become aware of what I'm doing and I try to stop but just find myself doing it again. Its very annoying. I'm thinking the repetitiveness of it is OCD, which I'm beginning to think I suffer from more than my T is aware. I don't know why I do it though. I'm usually alone when I do it, so it may be a defense mechanism for loneliness. I have found myself doing it a couple of times while riding with someone else though. I've never thought to tell my T about this, but this thread made me think of it. It makes me feel like I can understand hearing voices as yall have described, like maybe its just a step removed from what I experience. Anyway, I just thought I'd share.
