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.

I do experience auditory hallucinations. Have since I was a teenager. Had a few visual hallucinations as well, but more often just hearing things that aren't really there. Most often mine are at night, early morning, or at times when I am very stressed. Most commonly I will hear what I think is a radio playing outside my house, or down the hall, or murmurs of a male voice having a distant conversation or argument. Several times I have heard more sharp, louder noises, such as a scream or one of my kids crying, or a dog barking, or a crashing/breaking noise. Then when I would get up and run to check, they are all sound asleep and as I search for the sound, I realize that it must have been a hallucination again.

I brought it up with my therapist once, and she said it was probably a sleep disorder. :? I dunno.

A couple of nights ago, my son was singing to himself late at night and I could sort of barely hear him and it really set me off on a loop trying to figure out if it was real or not, lol. He said I sat up in bed across the trailer and yelled something at him that didn't make and sense and so he apologized and stopped. I felt bad for yelling at him, but also freaking out and confused as heck because all my normal coping methods were not working!

PTSD causes auditory hallucinations that's why some people who experience it wants music or TV on to distracts them.
