Auditory hallucinations

Postby dmoore03 » Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:21 am

Does anyone else hear voices from their PTSD? If so, what is it like for you?

I hear dissociated voices sometimes and my therapist told me that can happen with PTSD.

If they don't feel like you, then they might be dissociated identities. People with PTSD can have emotional fragments, but they wouldn't be developed to the point where they would have their own thoughts and opinions.

If you experienced ongoing trauma as a young child (neglectful or emotionally unavailable caregivers, etc), then you could have OSDD or DID. It's important to figure out because treatment for PTSD might help some symptoms, but if you have a true dissociative disorder, it needs specialized treatment.

You may want to look at the DID forum on here, and/or read up on DID and OSDD to see if anything resonates with you.

It also depends on the abuse, and the damage caused and the age. There can be splintering which is not the normal DID and not normally picked up by normal therapists. Not talking about a lack of emotional support but talking about extreme fear.
