I Hear Dead Voices

“Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up on rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.”
---- Meg Chittenden ----

Sounds that were never there, I hear them. Welcome to the first stage of psychosis.
Often times, I hear noises that doesn't appear to bother anyone. I hear loud bangs, car horns, people shouting and shrew noises lasting no more than a second, the type of noise that gives the impression that you are in grave danger, much similiar to the feeling of a bullet coming your way after a loud bang.

This happens to me mostly at night. Its annoying because it wakes me up at the precise moment I was about to enter sleep mode. Whenever that happens, adrenaline rushes and I transient into bullet time. Sigh, there goes my slumber sleep.

Odd thing is, no seemed to be bothered by it whenever that loud noise occurs. It is as if I am the only one being affected by it. It is as if I'm the only one hearing noises. That got me thinking, are these noises imaginary?

Sometimes I ask around when it happens during the day, but the response I get are mostly negative which led me to the conclusion that I am the ONLY one who hears stuff. Most of the time, I don't ask cause it'd makes me look paranoid and insecure.

There are times when I convince myself that this isn't that bad since it hasn't gone to the stage whereby I'm picking up voices and whispers. Then again, hearing imaginary noises is freaky. I suspect that I'm an slowly going into a state of psychosis.

Let me ask this question just to be sure that I'm not the only one:
Has it happened to you when you hear noises that no one hears?

yep..my ears are sensitive to high frequencies. So sometime I hear things that no one hears.

In the other hand, I'm weak to low frequencies.So I don't hear them.

I hope you don't have to.

Yaya...happens to me sometimes too. Especially when i'm dizzy.

oooo...smell. Now that is an odd one. Ahaha, the next time we meet and if we are undecided where to eat, you nose might come in handy.

Exactly! Being called by unidentified voices is a scary one.

3POINT8 said...

oh ok. Detol won't spoil the ears, rite?

Erm no. I don't have sixth sense. Even if i did, its a poor one. =D

High Five. Often time I find it freaky when that happens to me.

High frequencies eh? I wonder where does all these high frequencies come from.

OMG! Better go consult a feng shui sifu before its too late.

When someone says ‘I hear voices’ I always think, that'll be your ears.

I hear people call my name and i ask did you call me but they all say no. i hear noises like someone banging against the wall from a room next to where i am and nobodies in there. Also sometimes it makes me wake up too.

i hear voices and sounds all the time. the kind that no one else hears them but i do. psychosis, maybe, but i got used to them. the only problem is turning to a friend thinking they called but they didn't and they'll think that somethings wrong.
