Hi, I'm new! I have autism, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression, and I hear voices. I've struggled with my mental health for as long as I can remember. I hope to meet others like me here.

Hello 7777, welcome to the forum.
Do you have support off a GP or therapist as with that and using this forum you will get the help you need.

That's good to hear, I'm still waiting to talk to someone about getting another therapist as I totally moved to a different area a while ago.

You're very welcome here!

I'm a voice hearer as well, been hearing for just over 5 years.

Can you share any details about your experiences?

I just hear the one voice and it never shuts up so I try my best to ignore it and don't engage it in conversation, I use medication which lowers the volume enough for me to get on with my day.

Thanks everyone!

@NWiddi For me I actually only hear the voices in my mind, not with my ears. There are a lot of them though and most of them are mean. I do take Geodon and that helps drown them out a bit.

That's how I hear my voice now that I'm on medication, before it was in my ears and in my head but since I used meds it's exclusively in my mind. Like thoughts would be but these words are completely uncontrollable which I'm sure you can relate to.

I'm sorry yours are mean, mine isn't exactly mean but it is incredibly annoying, it sings a lot and when it isn't singing it's whining about me not speaking to it for the past five years.

I used to speak to it and tried to find out if we could have a relationship based on mutual respect but it respects nothing and nobody, I have boundaries and it crosses all of them.
