I have had nights like that. My mind will just think responses while they are talking and they keep talking like I am talking to them on purpose. It's horrible. Can try counting to 100 maybe. Nothing really works for me when my voices are bad at night, I usually just end up going without sleep.

Mine are saying horrible things to me, they put me right down in the dumps, I have had them now for 12 years and still havent found a coping method, I have tried all kinds of drugs.
You know what the phyc doctor said to me when I was in hospital ( you will always have the voices these drugs just keep your mood up) what a wanker.

Sorry to hear that. I have had mine for 10 years now. I am still trying to figure out coping methods that aren't bad for me too, drinking until I got a buzz would get me a little distracted from them but I can't really afford to drink every day and probably not a good idea anyways. The medications don't do anything for me but I definitely get my fill of bad side effects from them. Mine call me names a lot too and are just really mean.

I'm sorry your voices have been keeping you awake, wollie.
I am overtired at the moment due to similar circumstances. The best advice I can muster is listen to music on headphones in an attempt to drown out the voices. I have a playlist on Spotify especially for my voice hearing experiences when I am trying to sleep. It only works with limited success, but at least some sleep is better than none at all.
Sending you hugs. :hug:

My voice is a horrid little faggot , it’s now 2 & a half years of hearing anything from “ Absolutely “ in a sarcastic pantomime way when I have a negative thought to the thoroughly nasty & threatening “Handle it “ when Its trying to force itself on me to the “ Glow “ when it tweaks my body into a fearful state as it then tries to deceive me into listening to it , Yukk !
