I keep hearing things, what can I do?
I have had depression for a number of years and tried to kill myself in Jan by overdose, was really low and couldn’t take any more. I am now feeling ok, except since I od’d I keep hearing things. At first I thought it was just because I had so many drugs in my system from the overdose, but I still keep hearing things.
It isn’t every day, but it’s enough to bother me. It is mainly my family or friends talking to me- but no-ones there, so sometimes I talk to them because it seems to be coming from another room so I don’t realise at first that they aren’t real. Until I go check and the house is empty…
The other day I had just woken up and I heard a sigh coming from behind me- it scared me quite a lot, it’s not nice thinking someone is in your room. So that wasn’t nice, a very quick way to be fully awake tho…
The voices aren’t threatening or abusive or anything, like I said I tend to think they are real until I see otherwise (which is when they stop).
I just wondered what I should do? I’m not on any medication and I don’t want to be on any medication. Will it just stop do you think?? Should I just do my best to ignore it?
