when i was unmedicated i was hearing from about 50 or more family and friends and celebrities a day in my head. it seems i memorize a voice or something and then i will have hallucinations of familiar voices.
just last night, i was thinking, i haven’t hallucinated for 3 days, and then adrienne said “hallucinate” haha. she’s an old friend from college.
at first i thought well maybe im telepathic or something to only be hearing from friends and family? now i just have whispers, but they are all from mostly old friends. it makes me leery of getting another persons voice in my head, because i will hallucinate it if unmedicated
First time it happened was when I smoked weed for the first time, it was 1-2y before my diagnosis. Also sounds and visuals around me were distorted looked artificial and fake. I told 2 Drs that I feel like I am not in reality anymore, that I feel not real and that i am hearing voices. They said its just stress until I ended up in the emergency from suicide, then they diagnosed me the same day with psychosis NOS.
