I'm pretty much in the same boat regarding a voice that never shuts up from the moment I wake up to the time I fall asleep at night.

I contemplated taking my own life but that didn't sit well with me, I couldn't do that to the people who love me besides I really want to see this life through to whatever end may be in store for me.

I wasn't on meds and that was the last thing I tried, not ideal to be on them for potentially the rest of my life but it's better than no life at all.

I was pleasantly surprised with the medication, it lowered the volume of this voice by a good 90%, almost the next day I could focus and concentrate again, enough to resume reading and watching TV.

I still hear the voice but it doesn't bother me as much, I quickly became desensitised to what it was saying.

I hope your assessment goes well and you can get some relief.

Sometimes voices change when you introduce medication, sometimes for the better or sometimes they get more aggressive and will threaten you, but rest assured I've never read any reports of voices being able to follow through with any threat, they can only try to convince you to harm yourself so if that happens please stay strong.

Suicidal thoughts. They tell us to open up, speak to someone about it.
Well most have already tried. The closer we get to ending it, the less we have to say, because it is indeed a very personal choice despite the pain it would cause to our family.
If you want to die you start to think about the most easiest way.
we think that theres a better place after, there must be, because life can be hell.

Have you ever been sectioned?
I hope you find a way to ease your mind and find peace from your voices. You are struggling with torment

@RapblasterMaster no I've not been sectioned before I'm a outpatient at a mental hospital. crisis team know are am relapsing again with suicide but seems much more appealing to be a sleep forever than to continue down the path of constantly trying to figure out how and when to do it

I won't be leaving this forum anytime soon full of people who are very caring much more helpful than the NHS

I use distraction until I am able to sleep at night then wake up in the morning and start distracting myself again.
