Often Feel There Is Another Voice Inside?
Hello. My doctor wants to ask I feel very tormented with myself, for example when I open the application on my cellphone and I want to close the apk suddenly my steps stop because in my heart it’s like someone said don’t close the apk you’ll be unlucky .. and that not limited to opening and closing the apk only.. that also includes when I do ablution, pray and do other activities.. why do you think so.. I keep repeating words in my heart that I don’t like and I keep fighting it inside myself I have also said that I don’t think so, in the end I was silenced and when I was silenced I felt very guilty and thought about it… why do you think, doctor
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. In determining a psychological disorder, in contrast to other medical disorders, it takes an in-depth interview and history-taking and may take more time. This is because everyone has a different psychological background, different problems, and different ways of dealing with problems.
For example, two people who are both depressed because they were fired from their jobs, maybe one is sad because by being fired, no one can pay for their child's medical expenses. While the other one is sad because the job is his dream job, and many beautiful memories have been formed in it.
So with that, what we want to convey, if it is true that what you feel has really interfered with your function in carrying out daily activities, then this does require treatment and regarding how to handle it, our advice is to tell your problem to a psychiatrist. Your psychiatrist will be able to detect if, for example, there was a psychological problem in the past that is the basis of what you are experiencing now.
In the meantime, maybe you can start remembering when that feeling first appeared, whose voice you heard, etc. because this information will be very useful to your psychiatrist. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
