I'm really struggling with voices telling me to kill myself or seriously injure myself and urges to self harm seeing items I could self harm with everywhere I go! I'm due to be discharged from hospital at the begining of March but I don't think I'll cope in the community Help

Hi Katie,

I experience voices 24/7 they are bad and expect me to harm myself or kill myself - they goad me everyday.

I have to try to say no, its not always working. I have to self harm sometimes, but the point is I'm still here. We have to figure out ways to cope with the voices/tell them you are not listening. They are not speaking the truth.

Are you on any medication to help with the voices?

Do the staff know how bad you're feeling and that these voices are tormenting you?
I'm so sorry that you're having to deal with this - it must be very upsetting and stressful. :hug1:

I understand your anxiety about going into the community - I was in hospital 5 years ago and had huge anxiety about going it alone. 5 years on I'm still here, still struggling but here all the same and I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping up a normal life!
Voices are awful, I fully appreciate and emphasise with you it's tough. Hopefully the increase in your meds will help x
Sending you hugs xxx
