Voices taking over my life

When I started hearing voices i had just had a addiction for a year and a half what actually snapped me out of taking the drugs was the sound or what you all call voices I was addicted to a drug called speed i didn't anyone help me during the time and i believe that's caused my anxiety and the voices. They talk to me 24 hours they are there before go sleep and when I wake up they tell they are townspeople and anyone I knew throughout my life.I have been going through this for 13 years now and have only had support for 3 to 4 years. When they're accusations and they're threats scare me I harm my face as hard i can as many times as I can and it hurts and makes me cry. The only reason I have got support is because severe anxiety came in and had to see a docter. I have 3 children all teenagers and am never alone due to the voices telling they are going to kill me.

I have intrusive thoughts and they're like voices -- almost as bad. Have you tried antipsychotics?

That's a very low dose of quetiapine; you may want to try increasing it. However, I must warn you that high doses of quetiapine (or any antipsychotic) have side-effects like weight-gain but you have to decide whether they're better or worse than hearing voices.

Don't believe your voices when they say they're going to kill you, mine kept saying that in the beginning and it never happened, laugh it off and say something like "you and who's army?" or "come on then, give me your best shot!" or better yet just ignore the voices completely like I do with mine.

I've been ignoring my voice for three years now and have been hearing him for just over three and a half years yet my voice keeps on talking, he rants, whines and begs about coming off medication and about me not talking to him but if he expects either to happen he needs to learn to behave himself. I'm like a parent and he's my child and I treat him as such, and he's been a very naughty boy.

My son used to believe that he is going to enter a coma and wakeup as an old man and realise that he lost all his life. This phase will pass, if you can try to ignore it, nothing can happen to you outside your will.

Work on lowering your anxiety, do something that you might enjoy, stay in a warm bath, drink some herbal infusion, take a walk for 30 mins. , just do things, don’t lie and ruminate on what’s going on

Do you take any meds now? It sounds like you need some benzodiazepines to help you pass through anxiety, everything is amplified in such a state.
