hello and welcome to the forums!

You say the voices tell you to self-harm, then if you don't, terrible things will happen?

Are these literal voices that you audibly hear? I'm just wanting to distinguish this from intrusive thoughts.

Hello again, I've merged this into your existing thread but there's a link left in the forum you had placed it in.

So you hear voices, and you also see someone that others don't?

I mean, this could be a psychotic disorder, or... it depends on the voices- it's my understanding that audible voices are more like for things like schizophrenia- whereas sometimes people with dissociative identity disorder- multiple personalities- will hear voices but they I think more often understand that they're in their head, and not coming from outside.

Either way- if you're hearing voices and seeing people that others don't hear or see, you need to talk to a professional about this- if the urging to self harm is intense, then you might even have to simply present yourself at hospital, and tell them what is going on. I know you may not want to- I wouldn't- but there's no quick fix for that kind of thing- and I'm not sure what anyone here can tell you to stop it, until you've seen a doctor and been given some tools to help manage it.

And I think it CAN be okay- IF you go get some help. Of course it will- millions of people live with mental illness that creates hallucinations. But you're going to have to have professional help, I think.

Well I sympathise. I had an extended family member with schizophrenia that was hard to control. It may be rough for a while- I know for the person I speak of, the only meds that worked were pretty heavy-duty, and a new doctor would come along and try to adjust them, with the usual result of needing to go into hospital to get stable again. So.. it may be a while before they find just what works for you.

But look- I believe in you. I believe you're going to get through this, with your caregiver's help. The very fact you're here, and that you KNOW these voices are... not quite right, and that you know it stems from your illness- means so much. I have never had voices or seen people. I'm OCD- so I have had some pretty good delusional thinking at times- but I've never, or only rarely, hallucinated- that I know of. I can't imagine how real these voices and the person you see must seem. But remember- they cannot MAKE you do anything. You're in control. They can't make you self-harm, and try not to listen to what they say. Keep telling the cpn what's going on for you. Try and keep calm- I know it's terrifying. Hopefully they'll find some meds that work. If you feel as if you just can't help but self-harm, then please to go hospital if you have to. You can get through this.

I’m scared to tell my cpn anything As she put me in hospital a couple of years ago

I’m happy you have your ocd under control, I hope one day I will have control.
I’m grateful you replied it’s nice to get all of this out without being judged thank you

Hugs, if wanted.

We're not here to judge. This is a peer support forum, most of us here are broken in some way or another. You're in good company, here.

Look I can't say anything- I wouldn't want to tell someone either. But I would expect someone to tell me I need to tell my cpn, anyway. I mean especially with voices and/or seeing people that others don't. When the outside world and things that are just in our brain get mixed up- we need help. It's one thing to have delusional thoughts- but quite another to be battling audible voices and people, being accusatory at you, or threatening you if you don't do this or that. You need all the help you can get, to live a good life.
