hi any advice on how to deal with voices injecting thoughts into your brain and helping you plan how to kill people, primarily your immediate family?

I get constant repetitive thoughts some times...one of them is 'I want to die'. They can occur at almost any time but are usually related to anxiety.

For me I try to look at the emotion attached to the thought, so I guess for me if I thought I wanted to kill someone I would trace it back, 'am I angry at that person for something? Do I just want them to go away for a while and leave me in peace? Am I scared that I will lose them? What am I feeling right now?

Then I try to challenge it. So for me if I am thinking 'I want to die' over and over (yes it gets like a broken record for me at times) I challenge it out loud and say "I want to Live! I'm just having a moment, that's all!" And then try to live in the moment and focus all of my energies into what I am doing there and then.

I'm sure voices are so much more difficult to live with, but I wondered if there was anything in that that might be helpful.

Did you sleep okay gemma?

that was great thank you :) yeah i can relate to the I want to die thing and I know I would kill myself before I did anything bad to my family so it's not so worrying. I would still rather have a way to channel the thoughts away like you suggested, thanks I will try that. I have conversations with my little man and we do discuss these things and sometimes if im thinking clearly i can give a counter arguement but lately I'm weak almost like he has injected that thoughts permanently into my brain or something.

and yup I slept ok i guess thanks, was a little worried over last nights events but i got over it, todays a new day after all :)

how are you? did you sleep well too?

One thing I've worked out with the voices in my head, never listen to them, they don't say anything constructive or helpful in any way, shape or form....

kellimom,
I keep the television and/or radio playing 24/7, all day and night, which keeps them out of my hair. Good distraction, and such that I now can't stand to be without it. I"m also one that sleeps in a totally blacked-out bedroom in order to get some peace, don't want them watching or messing with me while I sleep. There is a voices coping strategies poster here.. As far as hearing aid devices to blunt them out, well, there is a thread on this forum titled "metallic earplugs" and another thread called "home remedy" which might interest you, claims to totally mute the voices, sends them back into the subconscious....

Dear Madam,

You have sent me an insane letter and so I suppose that what you want is for me to go ahead and get all of your medical records for me to check through for I have no idea what they wrote over on your private notes while you was in the Mental Asylum, so rather a daft idea, Mrs. So and So, and so what you want to do is proceed, and so what you have to understand is that you have to pay me lots of money for me to do that for you, for there is nko free time left for me to do you as a case notes style of study, for (ha ha from me then there) what I do is sit on the receptionists desk, and answer all those rather insignificant questions from all those ill people, you know the one's, the one's who follow through from the doctors' diagnosis of schizophrenia, and hypothesis, and always the hypocondriacs, and the ones who do not accept their doctors words, and so what they do is ring my life line, on the local receptionists counter, with all the chairs set out in the waiting room, with all and sundry popping in and out and a listening, and some using the spare toilet, and some not washing their hands properly as stated on that notice of how to do it exact you see, from the photographs for those who cant read, and in braille for those who are blind, so touch with poo poo and wee wee hands now, and so sorry to disturb you now, for never one for health and safety and have have haf haf to tell you and doh tell you for sniff sniff for my so true love has left me, that there are no more health and safety rules in sloffenia zhan there are over at baton rou and so many people are barkingly upset for no such reason other than they fall down stairs for they have no bannister rails and the girls skip up and down stairs in their flip flops and no fears and circular stairs now you see and so on and half finished houses with no more money, and so they do cut our grass, and a large plot of land, for all of 90 euros a go, oh I say, and what do I find out, the young teenager has no more than 5 euros a month, and does not spend it as she likes, and always for the work, and the cooking and cleaning and the cutting and mowing and the challenge of it all was the day when I said to her, now you do go figure, and so what I did say was:

Hey, Larissa, you want to earn yourself some pocket money, and she goes says, dobra dobra ya ya ya and I go, how much for watering my tomatoes while away, and she goes hummmm, I'd better go ask my mum, and off she skips, and comes back and says, with mouth downcast, not one euro then, mar tha, and not even two euros, my muffer sayeth I haff to do for free, and I go, ah, come here and so on and so on and so pop and biscuits and so on and so somehow she does not always get her pocket money, and all of 14 now, and so what a sweet and off for the hotel diana and off for a swim and a sauna and a steam and with her brother and her mother and her auntie and her grandmother and jacuzzie and so what they all do know is.....

all together now, put your conckers on zhe tables put your nose on your face, put your picks of cherries on those tables ahead, we are having fun, sitting on the Badger, having a glass of whatever's said.

So tongue for now
