Need the Sounds Of Sanity

I’m sitting here, the only one awake in the house. Earbuds plugged into my left year, right free so I can listen for kid. I keep hearing voices in my right ear. Voices that in no way sync up to the music in my left. I take the sole earbud out, silence. I listen for awhile. Silence. I shrug, put the ear bud back, the voices come back. The primary one being what I can only describe as a man cackling. Not something heard in this neighborhood. The rest is just non-descriptive babble.

And I know it’s nothing. But…

I can’t help but know Schizophrenia runs in the family (Hi Daddy!) I can’t help but know that with me being Schizotypal I have a 10-20% chance of becoming Schizophrenic.

But I’m just freaking out, right?


  1. Ping from Rich:

    I hope that's all it is. I know how you feel, our family is littered with health problems. :(

  2. Ping from Sid:

    Hope it was just the one ear misinterpreting the muffled sounds of music the other ear was listening to and not something more serious.
