I want some honesty, please

My voices sometimes hide in the guise of a spiritual being and tell me to do things, it is getting out of hand. They tell me they will tell me when the voices are from my illness, but normal people don’t have (spirits) talking to them and telling them what to do. I don’t know what to do I believe everything they say but some part of me tells me to cease communication, I just want some guidance. Please and thank you. Does this happen to any one?!

Yeah I think I will, hopefully I can go more in depth about my voices instead of a vague “yes I still hear voices”. Thank you @roxanna

Don’t listen to your voices. They are just trouble. They want the worse for you.

Thank you @Sheryl I wish I was a bit stronger but there is a limit… Uhm so this is just my illness right? If you can’t answer that its ok. Thank you anyways.

Voices are always your illness. It’s just your brain misfiring. All the info is just from information you’ve read seen or heard even in passing. The brain files it all away.

I think we who hear voices have something in common in that we were lied to by someone very important to us. So we retreat and hear voices that we sort of know aren’t real. We hassle with them instead of gathering the strength to face and forgive the real liar. Can you get a hint of the identity of the original real voice?

I think I get what you are saying, my first voice started as a voice from “god” and it told me to do obsessive things. I guess it started as a way for spiritual cleansing but maybe I just been lied to by religion in general.

Thank you they really are.

I struggle with this as well and it has been hard. I have to deal with demonic voices and spirits. been so oppressive at times, have almost taken my life multiple times. I’m just praying and believing God will use this condition for my good and his glory. Just don’t listen to the voices and dont believe anything they say. Easier said than done, I know.

Thank you so much @Rubes

Command hallucinations are more stressful than non-command ones. Try to ignore it and see if they stop issuing the command after awhile. That usually works for me, if it doesn’t than I’m kinda up a creek because I don’t have any other strategies to deal with it. It’s important you realize you don’t have to do what they ask though. They used to “take away my priveleges” by saying I wasn’t allowed to do certain things. I don’t let them dictate what I can and can’t do anymore… though it can be stressful dealing with the constant commands. I hope it gets better for you.

A spirit entity, who I thought was God, used to talk to me every day, for years and years, and tell me what to do, and I always listened to it and followed its commands. Then, I quit listening to it and it stopped, for the most part.

This happened to me when I was 17. Very debilitating. I hope it hasn’t came back!

It’s easier said then done. A lot of people have this issue. It’s weird how this illness can totally wipe out common sense! Sucks!

Oh I thought I should mention, when it was really bad years ago I followed my voice’s instructions to pour water over my laptop. Destroyed a 1500 dollar mac airbook, and they haven’t gone down in price since. It’s definitely a good thing that I’m not following instructions anymore.

Sometimes it takes something like that for people to snap back into reality. I’m sure you were more then pissed off at yourself but at least it wasn’t a voice telling you to hurt yourself or others. I’m trying to approach this as look at the positive. Take this forum for example. How many times a day do we see the same thing over and over again how people still think their voices are real or tell themselves that other people’s voices aren’t real, but theirs is.
