My voices are saying im horrible and deserve pain. I am trying to drown them out . But they keep on and on till i self harm. Im having a drink and voices are shouting in my head to take another overdose I just cant take anymore. Thoughts to die are very instense.

My voice sometimes wishes for death but it knows it would have no chance of convincing me to do that.

Do you have full conversations with your voices just like you would with any other human being? I'd make it clear to them that death is not an option for them or you and it would be in everyone's best interests to figure out how to live with each other.

I would recommend the book 'Accepting Voices' by Marius Romme and Sandra Escher but in my opinion it's insanely overpriced on Amazon at £47.

But Ron Coleman wrote a book that is more affordable (£10.50) called 'Working with Voices II' that may be equally as insightful.

I know it may be an outrageous thought right now actually being able to work with your voices or accept them and live with them but sometimes that's the only way forward.

My voice is like a wild animal that needs to be tamed or a child that needs parenting, I'm working on it as hard as I can and it's a slow process but my hope is all the effort will pay off in years to come and we'll have some sort of amicable relationship with each other in the future.
