Does any one hear voices here? If so is it one voice or many? Do you have a order of importance to them(like a pecking order)? Is voices something common in Autism?
I hear voices all day every day since I was born most of the time if I am lucky it is just a few at a time. I was curious if there was others here who have same problem and if you do what do you do to survive them? :roll:

A psychiatrist can treat that.

absolutely - zyprexa or clozeril or any other antipsychotic drug can treat that or you can work with a therapist to learn to live with voices. it's up to you.

I only found out recently that "audible thoughts" are abnormal. I've heard my thoughts out loud in my head for as long as I can remember... and I can remember my 1st day of kindergarten at 4 years old. I also read aloud in my head. From what I can understand, "audible thoughts" are considered an auditory hallucination. I don't know how I'd feel without being able to hear my thoughts. It's almost comorting. I think I would feel isolated without them.

I think there is a big difference between hearing your own thoughts and hearing "voices".

Sometimes I think in words. "Let's see, first thing I have to do is... and then..".
At other times my thinking is lightning fast and without words.

My son-in-law is a speed reader. He can go through a novel almost as fast as he can turn the pages.

I said "What a waste! That is like drinking a glass of fine wine in one gulp"

I read more slowly. Perhaps 100 pages an hour for most fiction, but I "savor" it. I see the scenes in my mind and I can hear the voices of the characters.
For me it is as good or better than watching a movie.

If you can't hear your thoughts then how else do you know you had them? I don't literallly "hear" them out load, but I do hear them in my head. I'm not all that crazy either :lol:

that is funny. when i was a child i thought that deaf people could not know what they were talking about unless they lip-read themselves in a mirror.

That is a good point. I have often wondered how deaf people think if they don't think in words or voices like the rest of us.

What about blind/deaf people like Helen Keller? How did she think?

Does anybody else ever have a conversation with them self? What I mean is, you ask yourself questions in your own mind or even out loud and then answer it. For example you ask yourself what you are going to cook for dinner. You then answer yourself by giving two options chicken or fish. You then debate the pros and cons of each in words in your own mind or out loud and continuing to ask questions along the way.

Yeah. We all do. There are always two of us.

The "me" who says "have a doughnut" and the "other me" who says "No, don't, you are trying to lose weight".

"Well, one doughnut wouldn't hurt. You deserve it"

"No, you promised you wouldn't eat doughnuts"
