Anyone ever gotten rid of the voices they hear?
No, not yet. For me it’s not a question of getting rid of them, but just learning how to cope with it. Hopefully there will be a new class of antipsychotic soon that does a better job for me. Trying glycine, but we’ll see
I can go for periods without them now. I have learned to cope effectively with them when they’re present (ignore them as background noise). I’m med-compliant and also do therapy and CBT.
@velociraptor do you have coverage for therapy, or do you have to pay for it yourself?
I have coverage for about 3x/month between wife’s benefits and mine.
I pretty much don’t hear anything except every once in awhile I hear a little music or a swear word. I used to hear a running commentary so meds have made a huge difference.
Yes I have!
They abandoned me :’(
Just kidding I’m glad they died.
Hopefully they are not in a sleep waiting to wake up.
I just watch my stress levels. It helps
I dont hear any voices most of the time its really rare when i do i am on antipsychotics in the meantime.
Still hearing voices unfortunately
Yeah mostly… with meds.
Before they went I had an epic hallucination where the characters of voices got apprehended by the FBI… I still recall it… they screamed and yelled,
“They aren’t gonna believe you, but to me, you ARE god! Ahhhh…!”
They faded out.
I just get breakthrough voices since then
After my first psychosis I was 6 months voice free. Since my second I haven’t been voice free again in 9 years.
most of my voices are gone because of the meds
My auditory, visual and tactile hallucinations are all gone. So is my delusion.
No. I did not got rid of them.
I gave up coffee cut back on sugar eat healthy did a gut cleanse and take cbd oil and Im about 95% there sometimes I hear background noise but a lot of the time i dont notice much not 100% yet but I think cbd oil is the answer also health diet
You are very lucky for that. I never count my voices out because I always jinx myself and they come back.
I only very infrequently hear voices. And when I do, they are benign.
Mine have been gone since 2017. They started around 2002.
Mine went away last year and never returned.
I did a lot of therapy geared towards voices.
In my home country, they use the Maastrich Interview
My constant voices left once I got hospitalized. They returned a little but only in the background and disappeared when I told an old lover it was over. ( The voice was of him ).
