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