Exercise and voices

I struggle more and more with the voices saying incredibly terrible things to me day and night. One of my coping tools is to do some exercise each day, in order to release held back feelings I get from having to deal with the voices/entities. I am called selfish for exercising and they also send me terrible dreams that are associated with exercise and being a bad person for doing so. I know eating well and exercising is not bad, but it is a challenge to continue to have to put up with what these voices/entities are doing to me.

Has anyone experienced issues with exercising and negative voices/entities and/or dreams?

Yes, while on non working meds or when unmedicated. Voices called me a cheater for exercising and for studying. It brought my grades down by a lot.

Thank you for sharing. I am glad I am not the only one. I hate that I feel guilty for exercising and wanting to be healthy! The voices/entities are just as real as anything else I come into contact with and never cease, so I can’t help but listen to them and have it effect me to the point that sometimes I won’t exercise because of how scared I am of them.
