    Yes, but unlike you I recognize these voices as different branches of myself or my psyche and not as entirely separate entities. I honestly don't take more than a grain of salt when it comes to things like "multiple personalities". Is it possible? Yes, just like Big Foot and El Chupacabra, but I still see it as a coping mechanism in which people who have repressed their innate desires start to lose control and these innate desires start emerging in various forms. Maybe it's them or their subconscious, but I believe something within themselves has made them think these "voices" and "personalities" aren't coming from them. Have you thought about that? Maybe you are doing something to sabotage your mind-frame? It could be spontaneous or stem from some sort of trauma. Or it could be exactly what you stated it to be.

    Out of interest...are you replying to the OP or to me?

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    I've had a time when I 'conversed' with another version of myself when I was younger, I did it to gain perspective on all kinds of things. From little, meaningless ponderings to the larger than life questions..

    Ultimately, I became that version of myself so I no longer need to converse to him. :P

    To be completely honest, this sounds like paranoid schizophrenia. Maybe I'm being captain obvious.. But you have a lot of the symptoms:

    - Hearing unwanted/unfamiliar voices
    - Paranoia/The Belief you are under attack
    - Feeling compelled to do things
    - Not feeling as though you are yourself; Loss of self awareness

    But I could be wrong.. I just hope the best for you, and I'd do some research on paranoid schizophrenia.

    And I must add..

    When I was little, I used to fantasize A LOT. Half the time, I wasn't even in the real world. I had such a vivid imagination, that my focus would be entirely on my mind's eye, and i'd be in a whole different world. I would walk around in the real world, imagining myself in a different world, talking to people and things that weren't there in reality. I would speak for the people and things, and then speak back.. I was having a conversation with myself, but to me, it was with myself and whoever I imagined.

    I could of course differentiate reality from fantasy.. But I preferred my fantasy world much, much more.

    Now that I am very much older, I don't do this anymore. Sometimes I'll create stories in my head that I can invision as if my mind's eye was a movie screen, but I don't speak to anyone. I would certainly get some odd looks.

    My situation is obviously no like your's - I know the difference between reality and fantasy. The scary thing is, is that you seem not to.
