Inner monologue in the night.... other ones?

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 :(

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.
