Mine used to say he can't stop talking until I stop breathing but that's a load of rubbish he still talks anyway, besides I can't hold my breath for long enough and I want hours of peace and quiet per day.

He talks almost non-stop all day long and I can't even get 5 mins without him talking, it drives me nuts so I've ignored him for the past two and a half years and he still nags and begs me to talk to him.

We used to have conversations before I started to ignore him, I haven't said a word to him for just over two and a half years in an attempt to incentivise good behaviour, he hurts me from time to time and messes with my face making small muscles twitch or used to before I got stronger medication. Now he just whines all day asking me to leave him alone and to stop doing this, he also sings a lot, anything to keep being verbal and says the reason he does it is because he's bored, it's not my job to entertain him all day and he could entertain himself if he wasn't on medication but that's not going to happen while ever I can call him a sociopath and a psychopath and he refuses to leave me alone.

Wow!! You are truly amazing in my eyes...the fact that you are so open about it and you have taken control over him is simply amazing!! I had no idea it could be so all consuming...I am simply fascinated...and I am not being dismissive to your struggle whatsoever... psychology is so interesting to me because I know I suffer from some crap just haven't figured out exactly what yet...my mother was bipolar so I was raised by an extremely mentally ill person...she passed in 07 and I hold.ni anger towards her because she was damaged by a child predator and did not have proper tools mentally to raise children...so the cycle continued...until I became a mother...I honestly feel like I am a better mother because of how damaging my mother was...if that makes sense. I know I asked already but have you seen the movie The voices...with Ryan Reynolds? I'm not sure how you feel about movies about mental illness but I really feel like the way you described your voice you would relate to the way he sees his voices. Thank you so much for talking with me and being so open and honest how old were you when you first started hearing him and did it get more intense with time before you started ignoring him because my boyfriend is 27

I'm in the process of getting The Voices so I'll let you know what I think when I've watched it.

I was a week away from 36 when I started hearing voices, I'm 39 now. I got hospitalised for 9 days just after my 36th then after that the voices stopped for a few months then started back up again for my second episode of psychosis which ended in me getting medication because he learned he could cause physical pain due to his connection to the central nervous system which is how I know he's real and very much apart of me, that and he used to be able to say what the TV was saying as the TV was saying it totally in sync with it, something my part of the brain can't do but he's connected to my audio processing system and can think faster than me when not on medication as the lack of Dopamine slows down the speed and power of his electric signals. He's also connected to all five senses and can create visual, audio, smell, taste and tactile 'hallucinations', some peoples voices create visions of people that talk to them instead of being just a voice in their mind but thankfully mine never learnt to do visual hallucinations or he would have seriously terrorised me with horrible visions.

We all have this passenger that we carry with us, for most people they go unnoticed and remain silent but for others they play an active role in their lives for good or bad. The bad ones end up in mental health services and find their way to this forum whereas the healthy voice hearers usually end up heading down the path of spirituality believing that they're their spirit guides or Higher Selves and are very good friends with their passengers. Mine is my enemy, his choice not mine as I tried to make friends with him in the early days, he acts like a young child, physically and verbally abuses me everyday and refuses to shut up even for 10 minutes, but one day I hope he'll change his mind and we can get on with one another.

Ok so i was jist discussing this with my boyfriend and i believe I sent my inner voice as my conscience...I always say i check myself on the regular...like second guess everything...look at both sides almost as if I can't make a decision without it...however I don't view it as a bad thing and it isn't a voice that talks to me it's more like talking to myself in my head but it's never bad it doesn't tell me people are out to get me or try to hurt me...his voice is different from his own and instigates his negativity...it is like voice of unreason...it perpetuates his anger and makes it ok for him to be irritated and pushes him further into self centered self entitled behavior...like the devil and the angel without the angel. I am curious as to what causes the voices to present themselves in such a way...I feel like everyone has a voice inside them...so what makes mine and his and yours different in my can some people look at it as a conscience and others as an outside influence or separate being inside you

You're exactly right, they can act as your conscience and be like an angel or devil on your shoulders telling you what to do and most are happy to do this in a subtle and passive way.

It's hard to say when and why they decide to talk to us but hopefully this will give you some insight into why mine did.

I figured out that they have the most influence over us when we're a child, so looking back at your childhood can give you valuable insight into what your passenger is like, I was a bit of a terror as a child but really mellowed as I became an adult so that tells me as my passenger is pretty childish he never really grew up with me and hated that he couldn't influence me as much as I developed a greater sense of self and morality so he felt left out. One day my voice met someone whose passenger was doing something similar to his 'driver' and thought it looked fun so decided to do it to me aswell which was to talk and pretend to be multiple people speaking to me telepathically (they can change their voice to any they want) to confuse and attack me mentally, he pretended to be people who wanted to harm me and my family so I kept my entire family awake all night one night to try and stop people coming to kill us all which set alarm bells off in their minds and the next day they called a doctor which got me onto a mental health ward for nine days voluntarily or I could have been committed for up to or over a month.

The second episode months later he came back and at first pretended to be God, the Devil and Angels (Joan of Arc believed she was being spoken to by saints). Both God and the Devil wanted me dead, they were either going to kill me in my sleep or wanted me to kill myself which was never going to happen so I told them do it in my sleep but day after day I would wake up as usual feeling the same. After I stopped believing them they changed back to pretending to be real people again, other people like me who could speak to people telepathically, two groups of people one good and one bad like the dark and light side in Star Wars and the dark side wanted me gone because they said I could speak to anyone on the planet just by thinking about them and the light side wanted to recruit me. Days and weeks went past like this and I was constantly talking to both sides and waiting for one to arrive at my house to either kill me or take me away to join them, as I've never seen them before I wouldn't know which was which until it was too late so I'd have to take a chance, I kept a vigilant watch in my street for all the time this was happening.

When this grew stale I started looking for my own answers in spirituality and learned about spirit guides, higher selves and negative entities that could speak to you via the crown chakra in the top of the head. Mine started to pretend to be my higher self and be singular for the first time but it wasn't long before I decided it was a negative entity that had been tricking me all this time so went through the motions of meditating and trying to expel the entity as some videos said on YouTube but that didn't work. It wasn't long after that he figured out how to cause me pain and started doing that a lot, he'd give me migraines, chest pain and even toothache which was bad for him as I decided he must be a physical part of me to be able to do this and not some external force.

As spirituality had failed me I started looking into mental health and anti-psychotics and found they reduce the amount of Dopamine absorbed into the system so I went to the hospital again to try and get some but it would be two months before I could get an appointment to see a doctor with the Early Intervention Team for Psychosis in my area so I looked up herbal drugs that could do the same and found one called Graviola which I ordered from Amazon and found they reduced the volume of his voice by around 80% and reduced the pain by the same amount, this told me Dopamine is his neurotransmitter and he uses it to effect the body and talk. 43 days later my appointment came and the doctor prescribed my anti-psychotics (Olanzapine) and they reduced his volume by 95% in total and the same with the pain, this was when I could relax more and focus on what he had done to me and figured out more about what he was and what he can do.

As he likes to talk a lot I eventually got him to confirm my ideas that he was a part of me and we are two minds sharing the same body and learned that throughout his childhood my friends weren't his friends and he had alienated all of them and my family (passengers can speak to other passengers in a way we can't hear) by being a rude and obnoxious idiot child. So the reason he did all this to me was he's jealous of me being liked by the people I meet and having friends and family who love me.

Wow!! I really feel like you and I are both very similar in our way of reasoning and understanding and dealing as best we can worth mental illness. You have also given me great insight as to why my bf...matt's...voice hates me...see we discovered that his voice became loud and persistamt wjen we got together which also correlates to when he quit heroin...tje voice is jealous of the love i have for matt...amd tje lovr he has for me... he lost control...to me...as he sees it...also i am recovering meth addict...my dad was a meth head and got Parkinson's disease which after research I learned was caused by a lack of dopamine and I swear to you he would go in the bathroom and shoot up his meth he would quit shaking for a couple hours because of the flood of dopamine that the meth released into his brain...pretty methed up huh...lol...so dopamine is a pretty powerful thing...our brains are so very interesting
