Voices of harm

Hi everyone,

I've recently began to hear voices that ask me to do destructive things. For instance, I'll be writing music with a friend and am told to punch him in the face. Or I'll be outside smoking a cigarette and a random person will walk past and I'm told to stub the cigarette into his face. It's becoming increasingly frightening but I've never acted on the voice's request, yet.
I did a lot of cocaine in the past and also had a minor stroke last year. There is nothing wrong in my life. I have a wonderful family, excellent career and a beautiful life overall but I'm very concerned about what is happening to me. I've sought councilling and have my first appointment in 2 weeks. Has anyone any advice or have experienced similar issues?

Thank you for reading and look forward to hearing from you.

Johnny

Hi and :welcome: to the forum :)

We have a Hearing Voices Forum here which might be some help for you.

We also have a Mod who is very good on these issues, hopefully he will be around soon.

Have a look round the forum I have pasted and I hope that someone who knows stuff will be along soon.

I sometimes hear voices, telling me to die but I only hear them when I am in a major depressive episode so can't really comment.

Hi Johnny

Welcome to the forum. It is a good place to find support and advice.

There can be different causes for hearing voices. You said that you had a minor stroke - it is probably not connected, but sometimes a stroke can cause voice hearing, so it might be worth checking out.

I would suggest you have a look at the Hearing Voices section, as Marlieebee suggests.

Counselling sounds like a good idea, I hope it proves helpful.

Best wishes, Sarah
