Intrusive thoughts vs voices

What is a voice and what is a thought because I hear it all in my head and I don’t know which is which.

Sometimes I struggle to differentiate my illness voices from my own internal monologue as well. If that’s what you meant. It’s frustrating.

External or auditory voices for me , have you ever been in a deep sleep/dream and someone screams out your name and it wake you up. All internal voices , wherever they originate, are just our own internal dialogue or inner thoughts. Hope this helps.

I didn’t know about this. I say thanks to all of you. I thought I heard voices, but for what you’re saying it looks like that I had was intrusive thoughts, since it was my own thought pattern. All this time I was wrong!! Anyway, I guess it’s very similar.
