Proof that Schizophrenia(Hearing Voices) is caused by witchcraft

My Schizophrenia Symptoms started in 2010 in my final year in a Nigerian University studying for my bachelors degree in the Engineering Department but I did not notice that the voices I was hearing was not from other students around me in the environment. So, It felt like other students around me, so it blended with the real voices and I did not make anything of it. I just thought people were talking but I was not very curious about what they saying about me and did not care some of the time except it was mean. So, on a certain day, one of my close friend studying the same program as me that shares the same first name and even the same first letters of our last names such that we were next to each other in the matriculation number list said something to me that was very important to the proof that schizophrenia was caused by witchcraft. I will call him Ify. Our rooms were next to one another and when I returned from class or so, Ify told another student that I reminded him of a film known as “Beautiful Mind”. Keep in mind that at this point, I have never watched this film and I don’t know it’s content. I did not even know what it was about. We graduated that year in July.
Two years after my graduation in 2012, I did not hear any voices anymore, I went to the USA to study computer science masters at a university in USA. When I was about to travel, I wanted help from someone to help me buy good clothes because I was not into fashion and I called Ify up to help me since he always boasted about having good fashion sense and he agreed. That is how he knew I was going to study in USA.
So, I traveled and did part of masters for about 9 months on campus and I was able to get a fulltime job as a senior software developer while doing the rest of my masters as online classes. Everything was going smoothly for the first few months and my CEO was so impressed with my work that he promoted me to the director of engineering of the company, increased my base salary by $15000 per year, promised to make me CTO in the future, gave me 2% equity in the company and promised to upgrade my visa to H1-B from CPT. I was so happy and to even make it sweeter, my work was like play because I loved what I was doing. It was like a hobby and I even did it in my free time in the evenings and at the weekends. However, the day he announced my promotion to my colleagues in the company, the atmosphere changed around me. For the next 4 months, I started hearing the voices of my colleagues making fun of me and disrespecting me including my boss. I was actually hearing voices but at this point I thought it was my colleagues and did not suspect schizophrenia. I did not even know that people can even hear voices as a mental illness as it is not talked about in the Nigerian culture. So, I was not happy with my now hostile work environment and since I had a gentle personality that only confronts people when confronted head on, I decided that I will quit and find another job instead of confronting my colleagues or bearing it. So, I resigned and my boss was so sad and tried to make me stay by asking me what was wrong. I was surprised myself because I thought he was part of the people disrespecting and should expect this. One month later, I left.
After one month, I got another job as a senior graphics programmer in another company in another state. The day I resumed, the engineer in charge of me started complaining about me to our lead and I was a distance away and heard. However, he was saying something else and the schizophrenia just replaced what he was saying with complaints about me but I did not know it was schizophrenia by then still. So, I thought to my self, if what happened in my first workplace is happening here, then maybe thi s is how the American workplace is. So, I decided that I will not quit but just ignore negative people and because of this, I did not socialize well in this company because the schizophrenia created so much negativity. However, the voices became milder at work but at home it just kept getting worse. I had developed OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) during this period. I did not know it was OCD by then but I always wanted to wash my hand after touching anything. It was so uncomfortable. So, At home, each time I wash my hand, I will hear a leg from the top apartment walking with anger. And I started hearing voices of people talking to me from the apartment and commenting on what I am doing. So, I thought there was a hidden camera installed in my room by probably the property manager. So, I hired a private investigator to check for it and he found nothing. Many other things happened that I cannot talk about. However, the voices got worse at work after about I year of working when the company decided that it was time to sponsor me for a H1-B visa. This time, it way worse than in my former job. Everyone was literally screaming at me in the office from their cubicles. They were many things the voices were saying at me like “you are weird, you are horrible, you are terrible” but the main thing at this point was “Go or Go Home” i.e Go back to Nigeria. Even, in my astrology subscription reading, I got a reading during that time that said the following “Someone need to go and it may as well be you” and I immediately unsubscribed. I thought I did something wrong that connoted me as a potential terrorist because the whole city was shouting at me on the streets and everywhere. So, I thought to myself, maybe USA has developed a secret app or something due to 9 11 for only citizens that they use to track where a potential terrorist or enemy of the state is and citizens are obligated to make him extremely uncomfortable until he leaves the country of his volition since they may not be able to drive him out legally without evidence. To cut the long story short, I spoke to my parents and we concluded that I should leave the state and that the problem was in the state.
So, I left the state to a nearby state. The voices followed me there even in the car and I thought the car had a speaker and internet connection through which people were speaking to me from another place. However, when I got to an airbnb, the voices left and I was filled with so much joy but it lasted for about 12 hours before the voices returned and through many events, I travelled to California and went to a family friend in LA who was there attending a wedding. He was with his young son who was not yet 10 and his son’s voice was insulting me. I explained what was happening to me to him and he has seen people pass through this before and he told me what was wrong and that it was mental illness and that I just needed to see a doctor. I did not believe him at first and did not trust him due to the conspiracy theory I had read from the internet while researching what was happening to me but the next day. It was like something happened to me and I could not sleep all night and when I woke up, the voices were repeating what I was thinking to me. I went to him, said something in my mind and told him whether he and he said know. And I told him that I need help urgently and needed to see the doctor as he advised me earlier. I became very emotional about it and that was when I felt like there was a gunshot to my head and I had a psychotic break down and was taken to the hospital. On my way there, I felt like an observer of what I was doing. It was like another being was in me and I was saying “I am terrible, I am Horrible” which was part of what the voices were saying to me before. They administered treatment to me and I became normal again. Then, I stayed with my family friends for the next 5 months or so and during that period, I started believing it was witchcraft and thought it may have stemmed from jealous coworkers who are also witches. My visa was on the verge of running out plus I developed another condition(Pulmonary Embolism). So, I left the USA for Nigeria.
When I got to Nigeria, We went to Pastors for prayers and all the prophets among them said I was attacked by many witches because they saw that I had a great destiny. I started wondering who could the witches be. Then, I continued taking my drugs until it stopped working. I increased the dosage and it started working and after a while it totally stopped working and I had to see a new doctor for a new drugs. The new drug worked but I started gaining weight and became even weaker than before. During this period, I remembered what my friend, Ify told me that I remind him of the movie “Beautiful Mind”. I went to check out the movie and I saw that it was about schizophrenia. For some reason, I did not think anything about it. Though, it got me thinking, I thought it was a coincidence. Then, a certain prophet came to my house and he walked up to me and asked me who was my friend back in my university days. I had many friends but for some reason, Ify, the friend I talked about earlier came to my mind and I told him that and he said it was my friends (Ify included) that caused my schizophrenia. I did not know how to react initially but then I remembered the “Beautiful Mind” Movie and the fact that he told someone I reminded him of that movie which was a movie about schizophrenia even before I knew what schizophrenia was and it all became clear to me that he was a witch and that the prophet was spot on. This is the proof that schizophrenia is caused by witchcraft. How will he say I reminded him of a movie about schizophrenia if he was not a witch that actually casted the spell for the schizophrenia and also how did the prophet actually single him out as one of the witches attacking me. Also, Lets give him some benefit of the doubt and argue that my schizophrenia made me hear him say that. Then, how will the voice which is said to have originated from my brain by conventional wisdom even know about a movie I did not know of its existence before the schizophrenia. This is definite proof that schizophrenia(Psychosis) is caused by witchcraft. Also, in the Christian religion, astrology is discouraged and my astrology subscription sent a message of “Someone has to GO and it might as well be you” when the voices I was hearing was saying “GO” or “GO Home”. This proves that astrology has connections with witchcraft or something. How else did they know what I was hearing which apparently is not real according to doctors. However, I did not say anyone should stop taking their drugs. Take your drugs if it works. As at now, mine have stopped working. So, I am waiting upon the Lord.

It was like another being was in me
You got that part right, the attack on your senses (in your case hearing) came from within you and wasn't caused by witches or any other external source, I don't know if you'll believe me but you're an intelligent man so I'll try and explain and perhaps someday you'll see enough in your own experiences to relate to what I say.

From my experience I've learned that all humans carry with them another consciousness that we share a body with, that's two minds sharing a body and this other mind can manipulate what we see, hear, taste, smell and feel.

Mine did similar things to me like change what people were saying around me, they can twist words to say whatever they want us to hear, mine even did it with the TV so it sounded like the TV was talking to me personally.

They can think and process our sensory input faster than we can so can easily change what you see and hear, thankfully mine never learned how to create visual hallucinations but learned how to do it with audio and used it to change what people were saying around me, it's more common than you'd think for this second mind to do this to people and many people on these forums have said the same thing that people around them were talking about them when really they were just talking normally to the people they were with.

You don't have Schizophrenia or being targeted by witches, you're a victim of the mind you share a body with, thankfully medication which lowers Dopamine levels stops them messing with your senses and more so I'd really think about trying as many different brands of anti-psychotics as it takes to find the right one for you, I'm on my third (Risperidone) but found it more effective to go back on a low dose of my second (Aripiprazole) at the same time to help with my symptoms as my second mind learned how to cause me physical pain aswell as mess with my hearing, taste and smell.

I can't explain the Beautiful Mind part but I assure you Ify isn't a witch and has never meant you any harm.

I have also experienced the TV speaking to me too and had visual hallucinations, tactile hallucination of bugs and maggots crawling on my body. When my drugs were working the only thing they solved was the auditory hallucination. I was even having continuous nightmare and could not sleep for months and had no peace of mind. I even felt hands at night dragging me and push my legs and I will wake up with the motion momentum due to the push. Also, I have felt someone kick me awake at night.

I've had the nightmares too, it seems the dreamscape is their playground and they can allow for lucid dreaming aswell until you medicate them.

I've also been pushed around in my sleep as they use Dopamine to do that and Dopamine is mostly produced whilst sleeping and I've been prevented from sleeping as they can keep you awake or help you fall asleep by manipulating your Melatonin levels as they have a connection to the Endocrine system which connects all organs and glands so they have complete access to any chemical the body can produce. They can even cause sleep paralysis when waking up which is scary but wears off in a few seconds.

The other physical things like cause pain and crawling sensations can be hard to stop, I'm on two types of medication to stop that (10mg Aripiprazole and 4mg of Risperidone) and they seem to do the trick or at least stop 99% of it.

While I was waiting for a doctor to prescribe me anti-psychotics I researched and tried a herbal version called Graviola and used that for 43 days, it's weaker than the pharmaceutical grade anti-psychotics but it helped me sleep in peace and stopped 80% of the pain I was being put through.

These second minds can do even more than I've said so far but I'd rather not give yours any ideas, they can get really hateful and jealous of us at times for being the driver of the body where they are just a passenger.

They're supposed to work with us and be good for us, some can even learn how to heal you by using the Parasympathetic nervous system and boosting immunity but ours are just bad to the core and can never be trusted.

Mine is a child like mind, a sociopath (only thinks of himself and doesn't know right from wrong), a psychopath (anti-social and violent), deranged (wild and out of control) and insane (talks to himself because I refuse to). I've taught him more about his own abilities than he ever learned on his own in 39 years of life, the only thing I got from him was the confirmation that he was essentially my twin brother that has been with me my entire life hiding in the background.

They have several more amazing abilities but for another time perhaps.

I find your story about getting your promotion interesting. I only started picking up, on voices, or telepathic sounds, whatever they may be called when I was close to finishing my Bachelor's degree. I wonder if your witchcraft theory is plausible because I have a pack of Tarot cards, but then I have had them for many years, and only started hearing stuff within a year or two.

I talked to a psychologist from France through my undergraduate university, and she said it is because I feel guilt about things in the past. However, it was kind of weird. It was hard enough to tell her about it, but she was happy at first that I mentioned it. I wonder if more people hear them, and do not admit it. I honestly do not enjoy them though. They mostly just sound like simple nonsense, like "ok", "hmm", and sounds people make like coughing, clearing their voice. It is annoying when I am trying to sleep and I can hear them though.

Mine started when I was close to finishing my bachelors degree too in 2010 but stopped after my graduation and restarted in when I got my promotion in 2013. Also, I went to many prophets. One of them said a monitoring spirit was sent to monitor me. So, that is why it restarted at my point of success or breakthrough which was what they were monitoring me for.

I have an appointment this Thursday, where I can tell someone about it. I try to tell as few people as possible, at least not people I know. It does not seem to help the more people know, but I try to distance myself from negative energy and situations.

Hi there, interesting storys, i have voices in my mind too, i think the witchcraft could be a possible reason, but i think there isnt enough to proof it, i dont think its telepathic because i hear dead people, and the theory of 2 minds dont convince me because drugs never helped me and dont explain many things, i think we are damned or granted, i Will explain myself, the voices try to confuse you, try to avoid you to reach the truth, they make you suffer but too make you stronger, Who can difference the truth from the wrong, maybe with a purpose, what do you think? By the way we could be damned too, i think it depends on your mental strenght and how far you can get, to be honest there are many logical theorys about this: matrix(another reality we are into and we hear the outside one in our mind), spirits or something supernatural, artificial telephatics, etc
