I think I'm going crackers because I'm hearing voices all the time and I can't seem to get any peace.
I go out to Strabucks and there are people talking - voices. I then go to the supermarket and hear people talking there also - more voices.
But the worst thing of all is I may be lying in bed at night and then get up and press a tumbler against my neighbours wall. I can frequently hear more voices and they are strangely muffled.
I don't know what to do. Can you please help me?

Dear Big Ears,
I don't think you're going mad at all. It's just that you're a bit of a pillock - nothing to worry about and I expect that you'll grow out of it.
As a coping strategy in the meantime why not start singing a song that you like very loudly. That ought to drown out the voices and at least give you some peace.
