In Need of Help

Hello. I'm 14 years old and I'm really stressed about some symptoms that've been bothering me. For about 2 years, I've been having auditory hallucinations. It started interfering with my schoolwork and I grew quite depressed. Lately, I barely want to leave my house, let alone go out with friends. I've become nervous about nearly everything. It's become harder and harder for me to think clearly and even reading, which used to be one of my favourite things to do, has become difficult. I now have to ask people if they said something to me in dead silence because the voices sound so clear. My mom suggested I see a psychologist. Until I get a proper diagnosis, I won't know anything for sure, I suppose, but does anyone know what this might be? I've been a bit afraid to look up my symptoms but from what I know, this seemed to be a good forum to put my question in.
Thanks so much for reading.

  Having auditory hallucinations and having difficulty relating to people can occur in schizophrenia but they can occur in other psychiatric disabilities as well. The most important thing to do is to be able to explain in detail exactly what is happening and then an appropriate diagnosis and follow up can be determined by a professional. A psychololgist should be able to help and they can see if a further referral is needed. Talk therapy can be helpful regardless. The important thing to understand is all of these concerns are treatable and once they determine what is happening they can provide you with further information at that time.
