Something I am regularly asked at the depot clinic is about voices. It is always difficult to answer as I am never sure about loud thoughts vs internal hallucinations.
This time I said I experienced it occasionally but that I knew it was stemming from me. I have to confess that my reason for saying so does stem from reading research that says voices are due to misattributing inner speech to an external source.
Without that knowledge to be honest I wouldn’t be as sure.
- I believe the voices are coming from me
- I believe the voices are coming from an external source
- I am not sure
