Not today. Today it's just mild mental pain.

Know what's good for mental pain? Watching Deadpool.

So sorry to hear you're in pain, I mask mine well.

I hate my voice for never shutting up and it's not like he has anything worth saying, it's all a load of gob shite.

But I promised myself to never show any emotion towards him or what he says.

I may outwardly make it look easy and it is much easier with medication but at times it's really hard for me. I really want to tell my voice to f-off but I'm not speaking to him at the moment.

It does appear that photo editing is a good distraction!

Maybe something creative helps even more? Like computer aided drawing? Mixed with photos..

I have a good idea who the male voice is. He has been pestering me with phone calls and on failbook. His voice in my head sounds exactly like his voice. He does not seem to understand how much it creeps me out.

I am not sure who the woman is, but it could be his wife.

Pain here as well: I feel like there is not enough space inside my mind and the tv talks to me all the time...and there is music too!

@micmed14 that’s very interesting since it rings a bell in my mind (the feeling of no space in your mind). I was reading an anecdotic story about a guy who was hospitalised for a long time with schizophrenia diagnosis and some doctors had the idea to test the “new” thing they were researching: neurofeedback. They claim that in about 2 months that person has thanked them that he feels like now he doesn’t feel that lack of space in his mind anymore. Btw, did your try neurofeedback? My son had sessions for 2 months, but he can’t say if it was of any good, but as carers we have observed that in the first 4 sessions he was so scared that the person operating the device tries to harm him and then in the last sessions he was going by himself and felt ok with the experience.

I've never tried it, but I think it's interesting, thank you for telling me!

In my country it cost us about 500EUR for 24 sessions (3 per week). That's a bit less than an average salary in my country, I am not sure what the cost would be in yours.

I'm not hearing voices, but I feel a presence that makes me nuts. I feel that "Invisible entity" is next to me and tryes to hurt me. I feel treatened even though I know is no o e there.
I ignore it and I feel it on my back, on my skin.
I feel it's hiding in my back and I look there's no one. I know is no one but it is this instinct to check. I feel somehow better afterward.
From to much stress and anxiety my logical brain shut off and I'm on those prehistoric survival mechanisms. Thank god now i feel like this when I'm to stressed and don't get sleep for a long petioud. In the past, I used to get out of my house all the time because I could not stand this presence I was feeling.
Anyone can relate?

I feel calm tonight. Just gently pushing out intrusive thoughts now.

The female voice is very loud tonight. Screaming and screeching. I am doing okay, mildly stressful.

Yes , I deal with something similar more frequently than I would like. Hopefully , the yelling goes away and you're able to have some peace.
