Hi,

Please say I am not the only one. :shock: ... When I go to sleep, usually with SSRI, I often have inner monologue inside my head, but it's everything, it doesn't make any sense. It's not logical sentences like : what I am gonna do tomorrow.... it's illogical. Like if I repeat some sentences that I've heard or movies's sentences. Sometimes it's another voice that comes in my monologue (I know it's not a real voice it's just my imagination!), but it's like my brain is too tired and assimilate too much information, and this information in the night need to go out in illogical monologues or thoughts.

I don't hear voices, i know it's my inner monologue, but sometimes it bothers me, I just want to sleep and think of nothing. Those thoughts are like a song you have in your head and can't stop playing. I don't know if you understand. With sleep pills I didn't have this problem :shock:

Thanks for the replies, I want to be reassured....I have it sometimes since 2 years, but sometimes it's more trouble some. Like I say, usually, with Klono, I didn't have this problem, and when I took Anafranil I slept like a baby.

C xxx and fear of schizo :(

cynthia i get this aswell.......its like your minds replaying events from throughout the day....as you said like when you have a song stuck in your mind that wont go away.....the more you try to work out what it is and why it happens the more concious of it you will be.......my mum and others have said to me its normally something that happens during sleep...like your mind filing away details....don't know if this helps....but believe me you are not alone :)

Hi Cynthia! I've had some of the same symptoms. Sometimes, before I went to sleep, I could "hear" thoughts that seemed strange, like a strange inner voice or something. It's not there anymore, not since I started on Abilify. My DP/anxiety symptoms are still there :-(

It happens to me too, but I think it's relatively normal...

Apparently when you are kind of half asleep the barriers in your mind break down and thoughts flow freely, and most of it is gibberish... I've known people who keep a notebook by their bed so they can write down these thoughts...

perhaps because it takes longer for people like us to fall asleep, we are in this stage longer and notice it more... just a thought...

but don't worry, I think it's fine...

yep its perfectly normal. its not a dp specific thing. i get it all the time. i often have voices in my head talking or even arguing over something silly. i listen for a while and decide that its just garbage, fully formed sentences, but totally contentless. i can also sometimes read books in my imagination, once again the sentences make sense, but there is no plot. once i decide that there is no cosmic significance (or even vague interest) to this i get bored, and end up screaming silently at them to shut the fsck up, which they usually do.

if that doesn't work, i have some more techniques, two of which i posted in the regaining reality section, and another i recently developed which is clipping their words, like its a bad cellphone connection - e.g. i, re, de, wh, is, cl, th, wo, etc etc. takes a while but usually my brain grows tired of generating the voices in the face of this nonsense onslaught and relative peace is restored.

wishing you peace.
