question
This began when I was approximately 16. At the time I was driving myself and my cousin to High School every morning.

I would wake up and head over to my cousins, and I would sit in front of her house for about 10 minutes waiting for her to be ready. This was my music time, and I would listen to my CD's.

The first time it happened I was a little scared, mostly because I did not know that it would soon stop. The music I was listening to, despite it being one of my favorite CD's that I had listened to over and over again for years, suddenly sounded alien. Mainly the singers emotions changed.

Imagine watching a horror movie, where one of the characters has been horribly traumatized. They walk up to the main character and try to warn them of the impending horrors, but they sound as if they are discussing the movie they saw last weekend. Their voice sounds almost perfectly normal, but there is an almost hidden edge of terror.

This is how the singers would sound no matter what type of music I was listening to. The same thing would occur when hearing people talk on the radio or in real life, unless I could see the persons face so that I could assure myself that they are genuinely ok.

This seemed to go on for half an hour or longer, but after it happened a few times I realized that this would last for a mere 10 minutes or so.

This happened every few weeks for a year or more. If I recall correctly, I experienced this heavily for the last two years of high school, and since then it has been less frequent. The last occurance was probably twice in the last 6 months.

I am have been interested in psychology since I found out my own colorful family history (ADHD, OCD's, and Schizophrenia to name a few), but search as I might I have been unable to find anything relating to my experiences. I am not inconvenienced greatly by these experiences, but I would love to know what is happening to my mind and body.

I hope I explained well enough what I went through. Let me know if there is anything I can relate to clarify.

You describe a temporary psychotic episode. Such episodes also can occur during pregnancy, if using certain drugs, or at night.

Read about depersonalisation.
