Yes natalie, I'm sorry. I meant to say listen to music with headphones on when you're about to go to bed/sleep.

This is a piece of lyrics from Santa Claus song as to what your voices are doing:

He sees you when you're sleepin'
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Wow whaaaaat?! LoL just joking/Seriously though.
Now I'm never going to think of that song in a good way ever again. Very creepy now. lol

though diagnosed schitzo i claim i don't hear voices at least on meds, i applied for a brent mind hearing voices group the women told my then support worker i wasn't bothered by hearing voices and a no in the group are, think she was worried i'd be a dusruptive influence

camden mind said i could join they're group but would have to pay, they suggested i get personalised payments to pay, meanwhile on planet earth they've closed my case

i guess it depends how you define voices when i asked what the definition was one psychiatrist said you winding me up, he said delusions of reference where say you overhear something and relate it to yoursekf isn't hearing voices, i think thats a difference between american and british psychiatry

yeah it is. The weird thing is, is that i am still half thinking about claiming benefits, and being on a high dosage looks good on the ESA 50.

But yeah, I am quite dopey during the day, so will ask for a med reduction. I only get the voices when I come home at night.

i wouldn't say been on a high dosage looks good to the benefit clarks, symptoms and hospital admissions connected to a lower dosage look better

it depends on the drug your on 15mg doesn't mean much, i remember when i came to london i was on 25mg depixol this psychiatrist said 25mg don't know why they prescribe it, might as well drink tap water

my then therapist said "why not drink tap water", a breakdown alone and isolated in london wouldn't be pretty to this day

I am going down to 10mg. In the old days I used to go to work on 5mg. But I did not have the same insight or maturity I have now.

I've been hearing voices for quite some time. Always covered it up and they didn't used to be intrusive until a few years ago. For me they're always just out of sight, like just outside a window or coming from an air vent or something. I completely understand that they aren't real, and they don't really offend me much anymore. They used to make threats to me but now it's far more conversational. I named one of them Jane when I was detained in a secure mental health facility and she now speaks to me most of the time, rather than me being visited by other voices. Yes it's weird, I understand that, but it's a coping mechanism for me I suppose.

It took me a few years to admit it too.

Have you seen the film 'Split' or 'Glass'? James Macavoy does an amazing job.
