I have a few suggestions, Go for a long walk, play your favorite music through head phones, take up a hobby that intereste you, vigorous exersize of any type, ignore your voices as much as possible, don't talk back to them
I've tried the volume control , and mute button thoughts. Even though I know what it is that's doing this to me , no luck on those two.. then I thought of thought patterns around the voices subject.. like carving my own path out.. Not that any voice would want to communicate to me.. they say potatoes I think of a person..ect. Made my own web that i think in..
Grouping the same named people together in my head , grouping people who have things alike to one another like hair color , ect.. pretty much just condensed my memory and think of things like visuals..without actually seeing the visuals..
I hear negative voices from time to time. Sometimes they are so loud that it's hard to tell if it's my own thoughts, or a separate entity telling me what a piece of shit I am. A few years ago these voices used to be way worse and more frequent, but I've gotten rid of certain stressors since then and that has helped tremendously for quieting down negative voices. I currently take risperidone (2 mg) for paranoia and anxiety, but nothing specifically for voices or auditory hallucinations. My coping method has just been to quiet my life down and try to live as simply as possible.
In the interest of helping others, are you able to be more specific as to what stressors etc. you have removed from your life without giving your identity away or revealing personal information about yourself
