I had this a huge amount. I got so anxious it moved into my waking day. It was all anxiety though. No psychosis to speak of even after it was happening for years. It is gone now.

I hear them all the time. Some are mean some are nice and some well they just are there. Those ones have mimick me all the time. At first it eas very terrifying. I seeked help and wanted nothing but to find help. I did but that didnt work I upped my dose and that too didnt work. I see a therapist and hes taught me a few things. Ibe learned to brave it. when i feel bad about something I get insulted by these voices and I talk back to them sometimes that works but that technique takes time and practice. The nice ones there usually my own thoughts but their is no voive to it. Mimicking is what it usually starts out as or maybe its soon after. I took the mimicking voices to a whole nother level. ha ha the voices couldnt keep up. who know who "they" are. i still do research from time to time. I dont think im skitzo ha but i was diagnosed . I was taking meds but all does did not work. So i stopped taking meds all together and ive never felt better. They  are still there but ive either grown on them embraced the or even just forgot about them. ha im in control always has been just had to figure that one out on my own as im sure you too will if you just give it a try. i have lots of coping techniques and information on what is happening to many like yourself and I.

I used to sometimes get this way before I had a problem with anxiety. I would be relaxing trying to go to bed and id hear talking inside my head. Lots of different voices. If I opened my eyes or tried to think of something , the voices would stop. Same with if I got up from bed. It wasn't a usual thing so when it happened I thought it was cool and would try to make out what the voiced were saying but I never could. This was way before I had a problem with anxiety and when I was in high school . I don't get it anymore. I'm guessing it was just because I was really really tired.

I think only twice in my life I have heard a voice say my name when I was trying to fall asleep. The one I remember was just last year when I went through a nervous breakdown and was barely functioning (because of a health scare, it sent me spiraling). I heard a man's voice say my name. It was a nice sounding man, not bad. Still, it was absolutely outside my head and like my husband was talking to me.

I also have the "voices" when going to sleep which are inside my head. I get snippets of things, words, sounds, etc. It's always as I go to sleep. I also have had hypnopompic hallucinations for about ten or more years -- when I wake in the middle of the night I see things floating around the walls the ceiling. I saw a plane once, I saw a lamp, patterns and so on. Always when I wake up, lasts about 5- 10 seconds and fades away. I have sleep apnea and find it hard to use CPAP so that could be contributing.

This happens to me all the time-especially the disjointed phrases. It's so weird, but it doesn't really happen when I'm awake unless I'm really tired. As far as I know, it's pretty normal. Just this morning I was between wakefulness and sleep, and I heard a car horn. It happens, our mind is drifting.

This happens to me all the time!! Nothing to worry about! It's actually quite entertaining to hear how random the sentences are, like "that furnace has three legs" and "seashells are running away". And it happens to SO many other people too. http://isitnormal.com/story/does-anyone-else-hear-voices-in-their-head-before-you-fall-asleep-33293/ and it ISNT SCHIZOPHRENIA!!! DONT WORRY!

I've had this happen too. I wasn't really falling asleep yet, though. I was just getting in bed and I thought I heard a man say hello from the corner of my bedroom (very close to where my bed was). I jumped back up and ran to my light switch and of course no one was there. I lived in town at the time and it's possible something could have actually happened and I wasn't imagining it? I don't really have an explanation yet.
