So I went to the pictures today but couldnt enjoy it because my voices will not shut up, why do they have to ruin every thing I do.
It's like I have persons in my head that wants me to die, but they would die as well, so how come they constantly want me to kill myself?
I'm hurting from my hips playing up and getting depressed, I just don't know what to do, I wish I could go to sleep for a very long time.

Have you tried some psychotherapy so you get in a "calmer" state overall? As I read it, you experience quite some anxiety and this affects your thoughts, that become rendered as voices, etc. These are not conscious thoughts, that's the tricky part about it, that's why it's hard to recognise what's going on.

With my Early Intervention Team we were doing a cinema group for a short time and my voice had trouble shutting up for the duration of a film.

If he wasn't commenting on the film he was randomly saying my name just to remind me he's still there but at one point he was silent for a good 20 mins.

I keep wondering if he could just give me 20 mins of silence while I try and fall asleep at night but he just says he can't shut up especially when he has nothing to focus on like he's some ADHD child. I wonder if it's possible for his half of the brain to have a disorder like ADHD and my half to be fine or whether he's just being a (word I can't say because it's so bad) for the sake of being one.

One a side note, what film did you see? I'm all set to see Star Wars in the VIP area of a local cinema on the 22nd, tickets cost £33 but it's all you can eat for 30-40mins before the film starts and they have all sorts of food.

I dont know how to get psychotherapy, I bet it costs a lot of money.

Ok, in my country it would be around 35eur/session and usually you’d have a session per week. A therapist specialised in CBT and with some psychosis recovery experience

Have they gotten any better in the past week? Mine have disappeared suddenly in the past week after a long time with them.

Hi Mr NiceGuy

Mine are still with me, nagging as usual, I'm glad yours have gone.
