Thank you for helping...
it's just hard to explain. I think it's weird that a lot of people have similar phenomena happen to them and are labeled mentally ill.

My problems mostly started after too much meditation. Maybe it uncovered this tendency? I considered it could be schizophrenia but, I never developed anything at the "correct" age and have not grown up with the illness.

I suppose I could ask a psych to give me antipsychotics (have already been on antidepressants).
I think you would need more than this one symptom to be diagnosed. Also, You don't have to be in a certain age group, early twenties is just the most common time. I would ask for an evaluation to determine exactly what is wrong and so get the right medicine.It can't hurt, but it could help a lot to look into it.

Hi One Light,

Thanks for your response.


Due to the fact, I have opport unites had in the normal of things, owing to volunteering in the community, our favourite resident senior in chief gp when I asked him about injection, and he quipped, and you go to in the community, we shall stick, with how we a re, relating to you taking oral liquid, via med cup, for measuring t he dose r equired, on a daily basis.

So there we have it, ever since and during that particular appointment session, it was then verified, I should stick, with the oral solution liquid.


And I still generally today,a have my regular 5 bottles to cover me for 25ml daily, of Abilify.


I am much much better, today.


Best regards.

Hi Mandy,

I'm very well. No heard voices, no intrusive reactions, however, i have been that next doors, grand children have been visiting them, they have been running about the hall, which i can hear throuigh my hall wall, like anything, on occasions, driving me mad! I usually feel to have escape out of the hall quick, if i have been downstairs, to get back into my peace and quiet mode. This is only temporary t hat grand children visit, on the regular odd occasion.


I'm alright, very well.


Best regards,


Thanks, for asking.

Hyperacusis get get a person several ways - too much loud noise or witnessing an explosion, or simply just creep up on you over years as happened to me - brain/ears/sound system gets lazy - brain says I don't want to hear that sound, take it away, cover your ears - this is where the 'self' takes over and says get a grip its just sounds, and that's how I retrained my sound system 'nice sound head' lovely noise that strimmer Mmmm, nice children banging their feet...

Hi Folks/Hi All,


I hadn't been mentally well during the early evening last night.

I had intrusive thoughts up, from within half an hour of quarter past six, to quarter to seven, only a small amount, annoying still, and at half past six, annoyingly there was a low helicopter, and following frightening for me, I could catch sight of the lights on the helicopter, pretty, but disturbing.


Anyway, I tried to music listen and knit, wasn't working, so i thoiught right cunning plan, I'll take my 2nd dose o fPregabalin, for anxiety, and thankfully, worked.


I took my 25ml dose of Abilify, earlier on in the day.


i am very well this mornng.


Happy Christmas All,


Best regards all.

Hi Folks/HI All,

I am alright, I have been ok today no intrusive reacti ons, nor paranoia.


I have been listening to musical, Phantom of the Opera, and also Beverely Knight. Both for calming and concentration camp purposes. There was however a helicopter tr avelling, about a couple of hours back, and that caused my concentration to be disrupted.


Absolut ely, no intrusive reactions, nor heard voices, nor paranoia, I'm very well, taken my 25ml dose of antipshycotic and all in one mental health med.


Happy Christmas All,


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Natalie, thanks for keeping this thread active, I know you could have messaged on any of the voices threads, but you took the trouble to message on here, which hopefully will help many, although many people don't say, lets hope it does - Merry Christmas to you...

I take it when intrusive thoughts enter, you've tried overriding them with words in mind 'lovely'gorgeous'beautiful'light' or peace joy and happiness or any combination, make your own up if you like, or simply love or light - high vibes words those... raising energy vibrations is important with voices issues, time in nature, eat less meat - more online if people research...

Or simply do SPC that's focusing 'in your mind' when resting, or unable to sleep, on one nice image for 10 seconds, then again another - calm the mind, but keep it busy 'enough' and calm - or in mind take yourself to a beauty spot, or a monument and imagine load of kids waiting for you to tell them a short rhyme or song lyrics, and half way through they finish the words off, then a big cheer from all involved... Powerful quality energy to your system mind'body'spirit......
