Default Are We Part of the Brain?

Please, don't make fun of me. I am very hurt & painfully wondering what exactly am I. These voices have too much power, which I can do nothing about. They are in the brain, I'm pretty sure, though I hear them outside much of the time. But I don't feel that I, myself, is actually in the brain. To me, it feels like I'm on the outside. Am I a spirit outside of this biological ecosystem? Do any of you relate, in any way, to this??

I hope the voices are kind to you. I can relate to the being detached at times....not feeling part of the body and brain.

Thank you, @Yzen, for answering! They are seldom kind. But they seem to be neutral at the moment, which I appreciate very much. I hope you are doing ok.

Yes, when things are bad I start to think I'm fake.

Sounds a bit like dissociation, which pretty much everyone has from time to time just mildly. I think stress makes it worse. Do you have any grounding techniques you like to do? I recently learned one where you list five things you see, four things you hear, three things you touch, two things you smell, and one thing you taste. Kinda brings you back to the moment, stay mindful.
