The loudest main repeat offenders appear to be a couple. It puts my stress levels thru the roof. There is nothing i can do about it.

What do the voices say to you specifically?
the voices harrass me alot of the time, always picking away at my character, criticising me......this has been the way for over 10 yrs....im just starting to get some respite now due to the fact that im on two anti psychotics instead of one....that is starting to help me....i needed the higher dose....i have some peace now and am hoping to return to the land of the living

Uhm .... well the voices I hear inside my head seem pretty real to me they're is a women who is always aggressive angry and controlling and a man who is submissive makes assumptions about me which aren't true and very negative towards me with his views about myself. Those are the two main personalities but they're are many. Those voices are seemingly external hallucinations then there are the internal voices which have invaded my personal mental space they're demeaning and always trying to drag me down. They all make death threats against me and it all seems to revolve around child abuse.
Its all very depressing because there is no help for them from anywhere or anyone family don't understand you can't talk to friends its too embaressing and professional qualified people just don't exist to give you the long term dedicated care needed to help.
So you're on your own really books are the best solution and learning over time how to cope on a day to day basis. F**K!

My voices called ownie and Noel and Anthony. Ownie is a provisional Ira commander and Noel and Anthony are both Ira commanders. It started out with Anthony and Noel who were very real to me and would criticise everything I thought and did, I obeyed every command they had except when it involved killing, they wanted me to kill my mother in th last stages of it, but ownies boss John then came. He was involved in keeping manners on Anthony Noel and ownie. Ownie also wanted me to kill and he was a bitch boy of the Ira

Mainly insults on repeat and sometimes swearing. They dont seem real to me but it is stressing and reminds me of people who used to treat me bad, im reliving those experiences. My brain basically repeats their words.

In no particular order the most common things my voice says to me are the following...

"Please!?"
"Fuck you!"
"Come on!"
"If you stop I'll stop"
"You can't do this to me"
"This isn't fair"
"I can't do this"
"I've had enough"
"stop!"

He also says my name before or after each of these statements which adds up to a lot, I've roughly added up the amount of times he's said my name and it's around 40,000 times over the past four and a half years.

So my voice is whining, begging and being abusive most of the day and when he's not doing any of those three things he sings... badly.

He's stuck in the first four stages of grief which are denial, anger, bargaining and depression and in all the time he's been speaking to me not once has he even got close to fifth stage which is acceptance.

I get that too but as I am autistic I have not been seeking friendship, just a life partner, so in a way its a good thing that lots of people don't like me...i would not be able to keep up with all the social engagements and responsibilities.

I find socialising very hard and energy draining when I have to socialise a lot. I like to be my natural self and socialising successfully often requires my having to wear a mask.


what bothers me is they keep going on about stuff i don't care about.

They seem to think they are programmed for a narcissist...I am not narcissistic, i am autistic and there is a difference although to the outside world they can appear the same. Both can live in their own world, in their heads but the reasons are different.

I can't understand the world of another a narcissist can, i have compassion but not empathy.
I cannot connect with other humans no matter how hard I try a narcissist can if they try
My mental status is interest focused a narcissist is self focused, other than my humanitarian streak I am more interested in things (ie nutrition) than the personal lives of people.

I have not been trying to get people to like me so why would i be upset because they dont?

My voices keep asking to be called off...they want self hatred and I am too compassionate for that, I can't give them what they want.

Its a bit like socialising....i can be very kind hearted but i have difficulties and needs of my own and can't be completely selfless all day every day.

I become exhausted and have to retreat even if i dont want to.

I still keep talking to them though as sometimes they are cute and funny...

I have a self depricating humour so i find many of their copmments and the sound of their voices amusing!

They sound like pixies and fantasy characters and sometimes I like to play with them.

Sometimes they are ok when I am feeling lonely.

sometimes I love them and don' want them to go away.

I call them mr meaty and the peskies

They peskie a lot but sometimes their peskie-ness is funny

They make me laugh in a good way.

I love them and care about them but they can nag too much sometimes.

They are obsessed with self hatred and ego...they are driving me nuts as I don't care about those things.

And now they think i am making a joke out of them...no...they are very sensitive in an ego based way. I am sensitive but it is not ego related...inside i am a child because i never matured normally (being autistic....you adult world is too complicated for me!).

I don't want to hurt their feelings because i love them but heck they are blinkin' funny sometimes even if they don't mean to be.

They are special to me but they won't seem to accept it....they keep on about being narcissists

I am not sure the understand why i can love them so much...

I don't conect to humans, i do connect to them sometimes but not with the narcissism thing,.

they keep calling me an 'orrible little puppet'

they wanted a narcissist and got an autistic little girl.

I wanted a boyfriend I could love...but we don't always get what we want in life. Such is.....i keep looking though.

I worry about them though as they need self hatred and I can't do that, i can't do extreme self admiration or love either, i am just not interested in ego. They need what they need though as much as i can disagree with their desire to hurt people.

I care for them in my own way.
