Okay, so I have these irrational fears that have been essentially ruling my life. I am terrified that I may be developing schizophrenia or something of that sort. It seems like lately I have been talking to myself constantly in my head. I get so stuck up there. I am constantly questioning myself, going over things, having conversations with myself about future situations or past ones. Also, when I read I say the words back to myself in my head. I just am having a really hard time getting out of my head. Is this normal? I am terrified that I am actually hearing voices. I think whatever I am saying to myself, I am almost positive, so that means they aren't voices right? I guess I am just paranoid of my irrational fear coming true or that if they are not true voices that one day they will randomly change to it since I am worrying constantly. People say those who hear voices do not initially know they are hearing them so that is why I am asking. All my life I thought this was normal and what if it isn't? Any advice, stories, etc. would be much appreciated!
