Has schizophrenia ever left you tense, irritable and angry

Im constantly wonde up by the struggle with my voices and the internal tension it causes. I can get into an awful state, wounde up and tense and angry.

Do you have similar experiences with the voices

Yes, I did. When I wasn’t doing well and I was fighting off my voices all the time, and my head was filled with negative and angry voices… I hated it.

I was angry all the time… then I would rage at my family for simple stuff like calling me for dinner. Then I would feel guilty for being such a supreme raging jerk and that would fuel my voices to be even more abusive… on and on it would go.

The meds knocked the voices down a bit… but so did the anger management classes and so did the CBT. I was learning how to sort of ignore and redirect what was going on in my head.

That helped me start healing with my family.

I get worn down by the relentless harassment of all involved. I know teamwork gets results, and there are more of them than there are of me.
