So my voices cause me a lot of pain and distress.

But I feel if I talk about them, or post about it on facebook, people will just think I am attention seeking, lying, etc.

But it is something i want to talk about.

It is paranormal.

How do you cross this bridge?

I think I would not talk about them with a new friend
would have to be someone I had got close to that I trusted
that is not going to gossip about me

its great having forums because you can talk about your voices here

I'm not on Facebook but if I were I wouldn't talk about my experiences on there for all to see.

I have a good friend who I've told about my voice and what he can do, he believes some of it but not all which is fine with me. My parents believe all of it as I'm not the type of person to lie or make things up, they've seen me at my worst and now see me handle it well on a daily basis.

You know you can talk to us Burt, we never think you're lying or seeking attention. I respect your opinions on voices and their origins even though they differ from my firm beliefs.

Thanks NWiddi.

Well I posted on facebook. I told if anyone was one of my voices to please stop. I don't think I will get any response, but it feels good to put it out there.
