Voices - sexuality

My voices have been commenting on my sexuality. They say that I’m traumatizing sexuality. They say, “you’re traumatizing sexuality.” I don’t think that I’ve had these voices until I started medicine. Ever since I’ve been on medicine, I haven’t felt sexual. I don’t know what to do about it. One voice reminds me of an old friend, who I was into, and it feels like we have an emotional connection. One voice sounds like a friend of my brother’s, and I don’t like what that voice has to say. I think all the voices have been saying that I traumatize sexuality, but some voices say different things about that. And the voice that sounds like my old friend’s feels very good.

Oh, I’m on medicine for it. At the higher dose that I was at last, I heard no voices for four weeks. But I used to hear voices on that dose. I’ve gone to a lower dose now, and I heard voices sometimes. I didn’t hear any last night. But I don’t like the side effects of the medicine. I feel like I don’t feel sexual anymore, and I feel like I don’t have as much fun as I used to. I feel like something is off with my emotions and like I generally feel bad and messed up. I don’t know if I want to live with hearing more voices full time again.

Yeah, I don’t know if I’m going to ask to go lower and then wean off, and see what living life like the old way would be like, but I might even go back higher in the future. I don’t know. I’m like it’s all in my power, and I don’t know what’s better right now. I guess I could cope, but then I don’t know if I could. I remember it being hard to read when I was hearing voices full time, but it might’ve been the book that I was reading too.

Do your voices have names? Ask them what their names are.

I think I’ve asked before, and they didn’t really cooperate. But I haven’t been really hearing them. They’re kind of stuck on saying the same stuff, when I do hear them. Idk why they’re stuck, they used to not be stuck. But I’ll try next time. Once they said, “one time you’re gonna love Diana.” I didn’t know what that meant.
