Hi Karl I am going through the same thing, the only suggestion I can give is keep busy, I cleaned my room from top to bottom and cleaned every thing in it, I know you need down time but may be you can take up a hobby, now I have nothing to do my voices are bad.
If there is some thing else to distract you, like going on a walk?

I am still occassionally told by the voices to do odd things but I now just ignore them. I've learned over the years that my voices have no power over me except vocally and nothing will happen if I don't do what they say. I've come a long way since the day I walked through my neighborhood at midnight yelling the Lord's Prayer at the top of my lungs. If I did everything the voices have told me to do over the years, I'd either be dead, in jail, or in a hospital right now instead of enjoying my morning cup of coffee sitting in my recliner.
