Voices carry

There are a lot of unexpected situations that pop up when one is mentally ill.  Some, like rapid-fire mood swings, are predictable – or at least expected.  But what about the more nebulous symptoms?  One of the most difficult to explain to others is “hearing voices”.  If a person has never experienced it, they usually nod, smile and look uncomfortable.

Until now I’ve never seen anyone explain this symptom in a way others would understand.  Here is an OUTSTANDING blog post from Emma White covering this issue in a way I think most will be able to grasp.  For my next post I’ll share what happened when I heard them.
