These voices you keep hearing can be telling you lies. Chances are your family, and most people you know are trying to help you not hurt you. When my son JS gets nasty voices like that he confronts them and tells them off. No matter what they are saying you have control over what you do. I know how difficult that is for you to believe but isolating away from everyone isn't healthy in my opinion and will only make the voices worse. You don't have to believe what they are telling you either.
I can only speak as mum to boys who hear voices but there have been many times the voices have tried to turn my sons against my help and their carers help before meds helped them to be stable in their thoughts and they learned ways to cope with the voices. Every time the voices were lying to the boys as we really only wanted to help and see them stop suffering. It's hard for family to see you suffer.
That's horrible them trying to convince you of this. Them saying "stop saying that" sounds to me like they don't really have control, but they want you to think they do. I know there are some threads on here where people talk about how they are able to control and stop they're voices. It must be so scary for you.
My JS' voices were bothering him last night so he put on an ebook through his headphones and fell asleep with the book still playing. He really relies on his headphones when he is alone to help him cope when they get loud and disturbing. They help when he has to go out to the store as well. They try to control and manipulate him into doing things he would never do. Tell him they are doing horrid things and for him to join them. He also hears a lot of cries for help which are really upsetting to him. Mostly from the outside or through his electronics or the other side of walls. Makes him want to go save them or call authorities all the time.
He also will spend time with me as it helps they don't like him having company, and will go quiet when he is with me or his other friends.
My son JD doesn't get disturbing voices but will have voices that tell him things he has done that he really hasn't. I call them false memories most of the time. His voices are more fun and humourous, and can be combined with visual hallucinations of people and beings who visit him. They aren't near as harmfull as JS' nasty voices. But when he was really ill they told him we weren't the people we were supposed to be. and that his meds were poison. It was very hard for him to accept taking his meds.
Are you on any meds Meryl?
I have told my mh nurse about the voices in my head she did not say much about it at all I said one of my carers is leaving she said once she has gone the voices will go I have had the voices in my head for years
I'm sorry your voices we're dismissed so easily by your mh nurse. Does anyone else know about the voices that could sit in with you on your next appointment. I don't have any idea why she would tell you the voices would go away with the departure of your carer. I would be furrious if a nurse told my boys something like that and be demanding a new nurse. I seriously doubt that your voices will just go away. Huge hugs Meryl.
That is not nice! Tell your voice that she is just in your head. The voice cannot kill you. I have voices that say similar things - like - "look out for the next person who will knock on your door today, She will kill you if you answer the door."
No one knocked on the door and no one was killed. Tell your voice that all will be well and she is not the devil. Try that now and tell your voice to be quiet. I do that all the time.
