Hey everyone, new member to the site here. I have been educating myself on as much as I can but have so many questions that I seek answers to.
One of the main questions I have are about a mental disorder I was diagnosed with about 1 year ago, Schizoaffective Bipolar disorder. In my case, I hear voices quite often. I don't get paranoid or go off on some episode when I do, but after I was diagnosed as bipolar (which I think has something to do with my being an empath) I told my psych that I also tend to hear voices while no one else does.
They aren't clear voices though, it is more the sound of a crowded room or bar and lots of people talking but I can't make out what they are saying other than a few specific, general words. None of the words I am able to make out seem to have any type of relevance to me so I don't know if it matters whether I can understand them or not.
I have dealt with this my entire life, it isn't overwhelming or anything but I feel like I hear these voices for a reason. As if I am supposed to do something or maybe something is trying to contact/communicate with me.
Any advice or insight is appreciated.
