I am a 14 year old girl, and I have been hearing voices in my head since I was 8.
It all started when I was in my bed, about to go to sleep. I would hear little whispers, as if 4 or more people were in a room next to me, whispering quietly. It began to scare me because I wasn’t able to stop them like I would my own thoughts. I told my parents and they simply said it was part of my imagination, and I was probably just hearing things because I was scared. Over the years, it didn’t change very much. I would hear them once or twice a week, but I got used to it after a while, since they never did anything to hurt me.
But when I was 13, that’s when things got worse. I began to understand the words they were saying. They were simple things like ‘hello there’ or ‘are you listening?’ at first, but then they began to get more violent and repetitive later on. I told my parents again, and they took me to a psychologist after my third time telling them. I still see the psychologist now, but I’m not on medication anymore since it didn’t work and nothing seems to be helping.
Just a few weeks ago, I walked to school in the morning. I began hearing voices in my head whispering loudly. They were saying ‘pray for me. pray for me please pray for me’ over and over again. Ever since then, I’ve been thinking it’s something paranormal. They’ve been getting a lot worse, especially at night. What should I do?
