  1. I, for the past five years, have been hearing; not voices, more kind of loud thoughts. They manifest by clinging to noises outside of my head. Its like a constant awareness, that I can't get rid of. I've tried the medication, and its not having any effect. I've tried deep breathing excersises to, but with this constant noise in my head, I can't focus. It doesn't just come as mental noise, I get images to. Distorted faces, the colour black, its constant. I can't relax with all this going on; and my stress levels are... very high. I've tried explaining this to people but my memory has been effec
  2. Hi I used to have hardcore thought broadcast (which is a delusion btw) for 4 months straight maybe due to isolation and constant PC fan running , there are a few things you need to understand with the voices you hear everyday when at home or in the street. You need to BELIEVE Because the voices are stupid af and are just a copy of what breaks our balls in our everyday back-end thoughts, which you re probably aware of and the voices talk to you about "intention", "truth", "ftp telekinesis", etc... REMEMBER, the voices are just a reflection of what you make them to be in the back
  3. Does anyone else here have an imaginary friend? Or at least a voice in your head that seems to have a mind of it's own? My "imaginary" friend, Anne, has been by my side since I was little. She is like a whole other side of me. She is never afraid to do the things I am so scared of, like insulting someone, doing something crazy, or making an inappropriate comment at exactly the wrong(right?) time. She has distinct attributes: red hair, gray eyes, pale skin, blue summer dress, brown sandals. She can be funny, clever, and a really great friend. But sometimes, she can be mean and demanding
  4. Right, yo, so I have psychosis... in the sense that I hear voices (or "audial hallucinations") of friends and whatnot communicating (in a telepathic, 'extra-sensory' secret kinda way) if you like. Now these voices can be pretty damn convincing and whilst I can keep my wits around me, it's not uncommon for me to occasionally slip into the delusion that the voices my brain produces - which manifest themselves as people I know / might have just spoken to moments before - can seem totally realistic in the sense they posses their own unique personalities/opinions which I (consciously) could not eve
  5. Before I get into the neurological symptoms, let me give you a synopsis of my background and family history. Both my parents smoke and my dad was always a heavy drinker. My mom had GERD / Acid Reflux pretty much her whole life and it should be noted that she's basically 100% Norwegian (I've read that Northern Europeans have GERD and gastrointestinal issues more than anyone else - same with the Irish). My mom was also recently tested positive for Celiac Disease (our diets growing up was filled with wheat products, so connecting the dots here, I think she was being bombarded with gluten and her
  6. I've been having voices and hallucinations ever since I was seven, and I would have confusion attacks, then end up not knowing who I am or where I am. I've been having sleeping trouble ever since five, because I would hallucinate, then eventually I just stopped sleeping. I get this feeling that I'm an alien or something, I don't know, that I'm different, and there are people that are trying to hurt me or something. There are many voices in my head, and most are friendly. Theres one guy that just tells me to wake up and do everything(commander) which everyone has, and theres a funny guy that ma
  7. Heyyy... I was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. I hear voices, have obsessive/negative thoughts (possibly intrusive), have thought broadcasting, and mood swings. As of now I am on abilify-15mg, rexulti-4mg, and lexapro-20mg. I'm seeing a pdoc as well as a therapist. Though, it's really hard to keep my appointments with my therapist due to my social phobia. I keep thinking people can hear my thoughts and think of me as 'disgusting.' I even sometimes think my family & friends hear me. It's getting so hard to deal with... I think about suicide a lot... but I know deep down that it's
  8. I always feel like I'm faking it. There isn't one part of my day where I don't feel or hear someone say I'm faking it all. The voices are always my own, though. but I don't control them. I never have. They are different versions of me that have completely different motives, morals, views, liking, hates, and personalities. But they are all me. And they get turns taking over my body. Is this schizophrenia? Am I faking it? Am I just completely crazy? I really don't know. I just go throughout life like this every day. I have to keep a journal to tell future me what I have done, because if I don't
  9. I do hear voices and sounds both inside and outside of my head when I am in various mood states, but one thing I seem to get a lot is voices, sounds and music coming from noisy objects, even when my mood is apparently stable. These have included: Hairdryers, fans, showers, generators... all I can think of right now... These have varied from heavy metal, classical, distinct female voices, gospel, male voices... Does anyone else get this? I've heard this may be something which 'normal' people get too, though I don't really hear about it often. When I asked non-MI friends they all
  10. I'm starting this topic because I'm curious about the connection between psychosis/hearing voices and dreams, specifically lucid dreams. Now I don't have lucid dreams very often but when I do I'm always interacting with my voices (who, if I believed my previous delusions, are telepathic communications of people I know IRL) in their physical form in a virtual, dream-like plane. My voices would have me believe that everyone lucid dreams all the time (except for me) and it's a way of interacting with other voices telepathically albeit with physical manifestations of each other. It can often
  11. This article talks about differences in voice-hearing experiences among people in the United States, Ghana, and South India. Some of the people interviewed from Ghana and South India felt positively about their voices while none of the Americans did.
  12. I have tried most medications over the past 2 and a half years so my new pdoc decided i should start clozapine because my voices have gotten so bad i stabbed my self in the leg and now have permanent nerve pain im nervous to start this anyone have any experience. Does it really work as good as they say it does im kind of losing hope.
  13. Could you describe what intrusive OCD thoughts feel like? How you experience them? I believe that what I experience are OCD intrusive thoughts but I'm not sure and would like to hear more about what other people experience For me, I feel like in some way I initiate them like I could think something like 'why am I alive' and they'll jump in 'yeah just kill yourself do it' but I can't turn it off and I didn't ask for it and it's my own voice but last semester it got so bad I was thinking of characters for these 'thoughts' but I mean I have a very active imagination so idk xD like it's mainly
  14. I was crying and I then started hearing things. I couldnt understand what they were telling me but i knew they wanted me to hurt my self. I blocked them out and soon, I started to see visuals. They were showing me exactly what to do with the picture frame i had in hand. I realized i was pushing the glass out of the frame and i tried to stop I stopped for two seconds and tried again with more forceOnce i popped it out i became so afraid I tried to call for help but i couldnt speak and i couldnt move I grabbed the glass and tried to break it I failed I tried again with more force and broke it I
  15. Hey all, I have been on Clozaril for close to a year now. Usually, on this med, it's VERY rare for me to hear a voice. Today they have been NON STOP. I was at a partial hospitalization program and they actually sent me home to get a PRN. I took 75 mgs of Clozaril and it didn't do a thing. The voices were talking about one of the therapists that run group and they just kept saying "Stab the b****" They are also telling me to hang myself because "I'm worthless". The voices then started calling me Michael. They would say "You are Michael now. Michael needs to kill that M'Fing b****"
  16. Greetings, I've been lurking for a bit and decided to step out of the shadows to introduce myself. I suffer from schizoaffective disorder - bipolar, PTSD and I have issues with substance abuse (which I'm actively fighting). I've lived with mental illness for most of my life and by my age (early 40s), I've learned to cope much better than I ever did and if there was hope for me, there is hope for anyone. The bipolar symptoms are under control but my psychotic symptoms are not. I have been to the pdoc recently for a med adjustment because of this. The angel of death walks nine steps behin
  17. Hello, everyone. My official diagnosis is Schizophrenia-Paranoid Type. I have been on soooo many different antipsychotics, and most of them have worked for my symptoms but made me sleep so much to the point of being completely dysfunctional. I just started taking Abilify a month ago. I took 10mg for three weeks, and since my symptoms (mainly the voices) returned and persisted, my psychiatrist increased my dose to 15mg. It has now been a week and a half at 15mg, and I am still hearing voices. My thinking is okay most of the time, but hearing the voices 24/7 is exhausting. Does anyone ha
  18. I had a good weekend, didn't drink at all. Sat at the bar drinking sprite all night then went to a friends house and watched movies fri and sat night. now it's sunday night and i'm fully rested. and i'm sitting here and the urge to cut myself is great, i can see it in my head. the voices are cheering me on saying do it do it, i'm struggling to use some dbt skills to avoid scarring myself. i don't understand why things are so improved that i have to be this way, i'm like hmm good weekend must punish self. anyone else get this way. i'm going out of my mind
  19. I believe there are a group of scientists controlling my thoughts, they've been extra powerful this week. I was receiving so many depressing thoughts that I was in floods of tears the night before last, now even though I don't feel as depressed there is a voice instructing me to self-harm. And i dont just mean a scratch, i mean fully slicing into my arm. Im sorry to be blunt but im strting to panic. What if this actually happens? What if i feel drawn to do it when i know i dont want to do this at all? I've been doing really well up to now
  20. Couldn't decide whether to put this here or in family feud. I think I may get more helpful responses in this area - but I'm fine with either if anyone wants to move it. So.. long story short.. (long version here: http://www.crazyboar...__fromsearch__1 ): So.. I just received an email from Crystal after all of this time: Hey, what happened was at that time my voices in my head were scaring me and makeing me beleieve that everyone was out to get me, and that if anyone tryed to help me they made me beleieve that you were trying to hurt me. Now I have better control of them an
