hey whats up. I read your post and i wanted to respond. I have been living with schizophrenia for ten plus years. It is an awful disease and i hope you are able to come to terms with it so you may live a life worth living. My advice on how to deal with voices is to talk back to them. not out load but in your head. You should be able to hear the sound of your voice sort of like thinking out load but in your head. I am one of the few cases in which the patient is still able to function in society. I was able to talk to my voices mentally and come to an understanding with them like in any relationship. Some of them are even pleasant. So yeah if the voice is mocking you, mock it back. If it is telling you to kill yourself, tell the voice to kill itself. Hopefully you will be able to make an imaginary friend/friends for yourself. I know it sounds completely loco but give it a try. Sometimes i can even benefit from my voices. I hope you will to someday.View Thread
