Hi! I have a question....

Hello :)
I probably haven't put this in the right topic, but I'm just hoping I will be forgiven for that :p

I am an Anorexic, and I have been for little over a year. I am also diagnosed with depression and body dysmorphia. I am receiving counselling for both. My counciller is perplexed at a set of symptoms I have been suffering from for 2 years.

Basically, I hear voices in my head that tell me what to do. They aren't auditory hallucinations per se (I don't think) because I don't hear them from outside. They are literally inside my head. At first, they were benile. They didn't say much, apart from small commands from time to time, of which I didn't take any notice of. Recently, though, they have become more person-like. They have opinions and ideas, and they dislike me. They tell me to kill myself, and how to do it. They aren't a product of my Anorexia, because the voices started before my Anorexia. They tell me who to associate with, and if I disobey them, they throw abuse at me, and threaten me. They petrify me. They are like real people though. They whisper. Their gender is unidentifiable, and I don't know their name. They won't tell me anything about themselves, they just tell me to trust them. I am genuinely scared of them now. Please help :cry2:
