    Unsure about how "open" to be at work

    Lying voices that are annoying. I tried to be friends..

    This is the first time I write about this: I hear a voice from time to time that nags me saying: "I f***ed my mom.* I think the voice originally came from the fear of a demon or something. I don't believe in demons anymore at all, I'm way down to earth these days. However, I also have...

    Voices being nasty

    Jesus they are pestering the hell out of me. Saying things about me. That I'm a failure and a joke. What have i achieved they ask. What have you gained all this time you've been in treatment.
