Stressed and starting to hallucinate again

My electric suppliers have lost all my meter readings and have been charging me on the wrong meter type as well. I am really stressed I am going to get a huge bill that will bankrupt me and leave me homeless.

As a result of this stress I have started hearing things again. It started last night. Just this man saying, “all neck and no meat”. Has happened 4 times today. I don’t even know what that phrase means but it freaks me out.

I have phoned the electric company to complain but am getting no where. That can’t even put a time scale on when it will be resolved. I hate ongoing stress cos I get real symptomatic real fast.

Hmmmmm… I’m sorry dude. I’m sure it will all work out.

If there was a corruption in the charging, you don’t have to pay the bill. You can file a complaint and if you have a legit reason, they’re gonna cancel the bill. Don’t stress out, it’s probably just a bad day. You can tell them on the phone that you don’t have to pay for something you didn’t use. I don’t hear stuff but I have something similar, try focusing on other stuff.

Thanks for the support folks. I don’t usually hear stuff. To be honest I think this phrase hearing could be a kind of mental tick related to my ocd. Like I say it is not a conversation or anything - just that one phrase. It is certainly brought in by stress.

Went on the citizens advice bureau website and they said the energy companies can only back charge for a limited amount of time. After that it gets written off.

Feeling a bit better now thanks. I go into these states quickly but I also come out of them quickly. Just need to give myself some tlc.



It is an odd phrase.

Google’s not returning anything using that phrase.

What do you interpret it to mean?

It is a weird phrase. I got the exact thing 5 years ago when I was moving house in the middle of the worst winter for 50 years. Stress was running high at that point also.

Am 100% sure this is just my mental “tic” when stress is unbearable. Like I say hearing voices is not a major thing for me.

Thanks for researching it for me though.

No worries man. Maybe they’re calling you an ostrich or something.


It’s a really funny phrase. If you can find some humour in it you could let it go and laugh about it :sunglasses:


Maybe it means you don’t have a body or a head. It could also mean you bought a whole chicken in a food market but they forgot to include the body.
