    No more voices

    I'm not schizophrenic but I hear voices caused by depression, telling me things such as I'm not worth it, not good enough,I cause bad things to happen to other people. Lately I have not been depressed so I don't hear voices. It's invalidating to not hear voices over depressed. I haven't heard voices in about a week and the last time I heard them it was just for a few minutes. I'm on Thorazine,...

    VOICES!!!!

    7
    The voices in my head keep telling me i'm worthless and boring. Whenever I tell my parents about the voices they just tell me it's the devil trying to influence me. They tell me to tell him to go away. I do believe in God and Jesus, but I don't really think it's the devil in my head. I don't know what to think. But I do pray about the voices and fears/delusions, but sometimes I feel as if I am...

    I hate hearing voices, they are getting more and more frequent even though my dr upped my medicine. Its always a male voice and it always says either hello, or hi. That is it.
  • I recently learned my health insurance, which is Medicare through SSDI, is forcing me to lower my antipsychotic, Saphris, from three tablets nightly to two tablets nightly because that is all they will pay for.I can't afford to pay the extra to stay on my normal dose. It would be in the hundreds.I decided I would rather stay on the Saphris even at a lower dose then switch to a different...

    told its the devil

    I suffer from psychosis (schizophrenia on paper, but haven't been told by professionals). I first had my episode of psychosis three years ago, since then I've had relapses. Since my experience with it, I've never really told my parents about it, knowing my parents would use religion into it. I recently told my mother about my voices. Not telling her details. She then started to say the devil is...
  • Friends! This is a really important topic we need to open. As it turns out, some of our common medicines actually kill nerves and brain cells. Some are more harmful than others. Some medications help nerve/brain cell functioning while simultaneously harming nerve/brain cell functioning. Other medications only harm cellular lifespans, and as far as I know, possibly some other medications are...
  • Hi fellow Schizoids,On Twitter I recently came across this article that made more sense for me in explaining my Schizoaffective Disorder than anything I have ever read including the DSM-IV:http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2016/03/schizophrenia_and_subvocal_speech_why_schizophrenics_hear_the_voices_of.htmlThe articles explains the hearing voices phenomenon that so...
