Voices come from within not without

For a long time I thought the ear's balance system, the vestibular was listening to voices from without that existed in space and the earth's gravity field. But I realized if voices came from outside a person through a sensory input like the vestibular, then myself and other's would be able to hear each other's voices, that is if you stood around someone hearing voices then you would be able to hear them too. Since this doesn't happen then it's probably likely that it happens from within the senses alone

You're getting there. I've known for quite some time that voices come from within us and not some external force.

What are your voices like, who do them claim to be now?

I haven't heard from any voices for about 3 months now. I've been like this before though where even though I can't see myself tripping down the rabbit hole again, within a few months I need the hospital again.

That's great, no voices for three months. I could use a break like that from mine but it's been all day every day for over two and a half years.

Are you on any medication for them?

No I had a hospital stay three months ago and they haven't come back since which always happens when I leave the hospital. Have you pinpointed what caused your voices to start? mine keep coming back because of this conspiracy I on and off believe in.

Mine sound like they are coming from just outside of my left ear

When mine first started it lasted around a fortnight then shut up as soon as I went into hospital and remained silent after for 3-4 months before coming back and never went away after that, I can't really pinpoint what the cause was, I guess he just learned that he could speak to me and was so bored and lonely he thought it was a good idea at the time.

Have you tried medication? Mine used to be able to talk in my ears until I medicated him and now he can only speak in my mind.

You should try somethings about the delusions, they are root cause for most of the issues. Therapy, meds? What kind of conspiracy is getting to you? Can you get some insight in your illness to challenege these beliefs?

What sort of conspiracy is it? Can't tell much from the picture, looks like a nebula. Pretty though.

I am on Risperidone. Personally I like my voice, it speaks more sense than I do :p

It would tak a book to explain it all to you. That picture is just one piece of the puzzle. Its a nebula image of Les Claypool, that's who the bust is on the right.

I also here voices from a distance but never pin point them, I was also on ziprasidone but had adverse effects, currently switching. Although I can rationalize they are part of my delusion it seems that at time I can't and create false memories and conversations.

I sympathize with what your saying and have often though something along similar lines. Mine come from a giant storm though a large tornado hurricane monster that devours all. Luckily its purpose is only one thing balance.
