I've been suffering on and off from hearing voices. Im on medication and it was helping them I stopped for a week and now am back on them but I still hear them. They seem real ad they know each detail about me and what I do. Constantly narrating my every move and mutt self esteem is plummeting. I can't escape it and have also had to get on anti depressant to help me sleep at night. It's hard because I have a family and am also trying to take care of everything with them and today I've just had enough. I stay strong for a long time and then they break me. It's difficult and I have to pay to see a therapist which in trying to avoid but will probably get. I feel nobody really understands and even though my husband is supportive and loving and kind I don't like to burden him. I feel no one can help me and I just wonder why or what I have done to deserve this. Im seeing my psych at the end of the week so I can hopefully get a higher dosage or new medication. I heard the voices can still get through even on meds. I hope I can get relief as it happens 24/7. Any other sufferers, just know you're not alone as I have been struggling through this life. Thanks for letting me vent

Hello there. I know you feel hopeless and like a burden your not!! My voice tell me my husband is tired of my illness, your such a burden blah blah blah. So I asked my husband. Told him what was being said and he told the voice to fuck off cause I'm not a burden. Doesn't always help me feel less of a burden, but at least when they say I am I can say no I'm not. I also have 3 kids to take care of. Im so proud of you for holding it together and taking care of them!! Good job momma!! I cant help with the meds cause I dont take any anymore. None helped with the symptoms, gave me side effects with more pills, or I was a traquilized sombie. I have read that people r coping well with voices and meds, but I haven't. Just know your not alone. Be nice to yourself, your a badass even little accomplishments r huge!! Remember your worth and to smile big cause your so worth it!! Hope this helps. Need to vent or wanna chat more I'll listen 😁

The voice I hear is 24/7, I've been on meds and ignoring him completely for just over three years now.

All he does all day is whine and beg about me not talking to him and he sings, oh the endless singing, I'm nothing but a captive audience for him.

For some lucky people voices go away when on meds but for most of us they're here to stay, mine is so stupid he doesn't know what's good for him, a few hours silence here and there and maybe I'd treat him better.

But the meds are not completely ineffective, they reduce his volume by around 95% just like turning the volume down on the radio so I can at least get on with my day and focus when I need to and for that I'm truly grateful.

Please hang in there, I don't know how long you've been hearing yours for but eventually you do get desensitised to them, I let his words just wash over me and at times I hardly even notice he's talking.

I treated mine as if they were manifestations of my ego with the 12 steps of aa. It helped a lot. God bless, good luck, love yourself.

Hi,

Sounds to me that the present dose, needs to be increased.

i used to hear and feel paranoia on lower doseages of my medicated brand, and at a high dose of 25ml, brilliant, it surpresses the voices down and at bay, and so to the paranoia.

Now, I'm not about to probe which medication and I can't remember now what you have said, if what sort you take, however, do take these concerns to the pshychartrist, and I wish you well for the appointment.

I'm Natalie, i;m in London, and I have been overall very well recovered from heard voices and although I still do get pockets of intrusive thoughts, and internal in the head used to have paranoia.


Best wishes,

Welcome Aboard to MHF.
