Hi, came here looking for some information on hearing voices and ways to make peace with the voices as my ex heard them externally and it caused him a lot of pain and isolation. I wasn't able to be very helpful at that time as I was at the end of my rope realising that I had significant C-PTSD and depression, and not at that time realising that I have BPD (but certainly having it). During our time together I realised that my dissociation was high enough that under pressure, when not feeling safe I could be tipped into psychosis and I began to feel that his illness was making mine worse (or that I did not have the capacity to cope with his, or with my own in his presence). I'm not happy about the fear, coldness and anger I displayed, I can only say that it was a daily struggle not to commit suicide over the shock and shame of how affected I had been for so long without realising. Facing the amnesia, the denial, the dissociation, the coping mechanisms, the warped thinking, and the contents of the emotional flashbacks that I was just slowing my system down enough to see the horrific content of. I suppose, in seeking to understand my ex's experience (now that I have space I can see it more clearly/not feel threatened) I'm seeing the overlap of the experiences of people who hear external voices, and people like me who didn't identify as "hearing voices" but had such a full on stream of internal screaming criticisms, images, impulses and sensations that they were dissociated and "clocked out". Wanting the capacity to talk to others with similar experiences and to be able to talk freely as I feel I've had to hide my entire life

There's a "hearing voices" forum. Might be useful to post there.

From my understanding the reason people hear voices they are tuning in to the mass conciousness .The negative energy of 7 billion people that can overpower peoples minds.We can seal our minds from it by positive affirmations through the spoken word .And eliminating any openings to the mass consciouness too much neg news, alcohol drugs, violent movies.

Hi Kirstiannabelle welcome to the forum :welcome:

You should check out the Hearing voices section of the forum, I'm sure someone there will be able to help.

Dont be to hard on yourself. Im schizophrenic so I understand how hard it can be to empathise with people who have the same symptoms. We are are hard breed to be around 😞
