Hi there, these are great questions.

1. I was driving home from the mall. When I began hearing what seemed like thousands of voices singing.

2. It was January 2011, I was 33.

3. I was fascinated by them at first. What was my brain doing and why? They initiated talking and gave a running commentary on everything I was thinking and doing, while also giving their opinion of it all. So I began thinking what I wanted to say and they began responding.

4. I didn't feel afraid at first. But things spiralled out of control the more I did what they told me. They weaved a very intricate story about why it was happening to me. The more I believed the more sick I became. I was not on any meds at that time.

Eventually I was hospitalised and put on meds. A full 6mths would pass before I noticed any change. Then one day they were at me quite intensely. So I asked 'if this is hows it going to be?' and that began a series of questions which lead to an open and frank discussion. I began to accept things that were valid criticisms and reason with them on things that were unfair criticisms. It is now 3 years later and I enjoy good conversations with them. Reasoning with them has been very helpful for me. Writing about my psychotic break helped a great deal. Searching for alternative strategies lead to finding Rufus May's and other's similar methods of dealing with voices.

Take care!

It was a very long time ago and even then I probably heard them before I found out they were actual voices.

without going into too much detail, the first time I bacame aware of them was after my mind snapped, I was in my bedroom and could hear a man outside, he was being driven around stood on the back of a pick up and using a loud speaker, this was at 2am in the morning. after that it a flood of voices both men and woman.

Would you like to answer that OskyldigtBla? Do you hear voices? Just wondered if you are asking for any other reason? Put it down to me being paranoid :)

That is a very strange thing to want honey. Mental illness isn't a way out of problems in life! Schizophrenia and/or hearing voices is not anything a person should wish on themselves. If your life is 'shitty' now, it would be a ton worse if you had this.

Forgive me, but I feel its a little, shall we say, inconsiderate to talk like this on here. Why don't you just tell us what is wrong and let us support you without asking about hearing voices - just a thought.

Hearing voices, by the way, doesn't mean you have schizophrenia by the way.

Some times ( and im really sorry for saying this to people who are mentally ill) i wish i had a mental illnes. So i could accept why my life has turned out this way. but sorry again if i stamp on someones foot!
The world is far from perfect, you do not need any excuses. I honestly feel that real happiness requires very little, and honesty (which you have in spades) is necessary too.

Truthfully, people with MH problems often make it worse by blaming everything on it. Its not true.

hmm, i dont want to destroy this thread by being of topic, this thread shouldnt be focused on me, but people who hear voice. but my world isnt normal at all and i may have a MH. Im currently seeing an ST-doctor. But if you want to speak with me, send me your skype.

It was a while ago now. Honestly those years have all a vague memory - as if it was another time.

Where was I? I think I was at home - it happened soon after my discharge from hospital.
How old? I was 24/25.
How did I react? I was scared. I would hide in bed, and sometimes it would drive me mad. I was not taking my medication ( i thought it was poison) - I got a bit better, took my meds, and the voices left. That was the first episode. LOL.

It does seem a long time ago in a different dimension.

What is an ST doctor please? You may be ill, or not. Talk about yourself honey and let us help. Are you from another country - you sound like you are. If so what are services like there? Its not off topic to talk about you, its your thread, you talk about anything you like. :hug1:
