you r wonderful person
thank you

I don’t know you well enough to rate your life. I do suggest that you stop taking your voices seriously as they aren’t real and have no power over you. That will improve your life.


How did you lose weight?

i run run run so much long distances nd good diet
but these days i hadnt mental illness
voices dont like at all if i run
so i didnt run for so long time !!!

Did you ever try vitamin B3(Niacin) for the voices? Dr Abraham Hoffer showed already back in the 1950’s, case reports of people who recovered from voices when taking high doses of this vitamin. I take 500mg daily myself. I don’t have voices, but I do have intrusive/foreign thoughts, and it really makes a difference in quieting them down.

It doesen’t help everybody, there are some stuides that have mixed or contradicting results, but it clearly helps some people.

This is not a a alternative to anti psychotics, but a add-on theraphy. Not completely without risk. If you take very high doses like many grams daily it could impair liverfunction. But 500mg daily is considered pretty safe.

It could be worth trying if you are struggling with voices.

I voted “good.”

It sounds like you had a good childhood from 1-12 years. I think not everyone can say that. I had a good childhood too, and I think that alone makes my life a good one.

Some very good things have happened since 12, too. But, even when I was in a rough spot just before my big psychotic episode, I told my team lead something like: “I had a good childhood. The rest of this is just gravy.”

i would vote my life bad right now. i have a good place to live and i’m on medication that helped but i’m very lonely. told one of the docs that my childhood was awesome and he wrote that it was uneventful. 14 to 21 was really cool and interesting. 21 i got ill but hang on doing okay but reclusive then. 27 i went to treatment again and did alright, now i’m alone at my parents house thinking about trying to move back above the garage.


Maybe he was just jealous. I don’t blame people for feeling a little jealous if their childhood wasn’t good. I think some of them made up for some of it later, though.


I rated your life as good and I have similar symptoms as well and I think that I’ve got a good life.

I would say not good or bad but in the middle.

I did not rate your life because I think the quality of your life depends largely on how you perceive it, but if I had to rate your life I would put it somewhere between good and bad. A lot depends on how you compare your life to the lives of people in different circumstances. If we had to compare our lives to people in Ukraine or Yemen our lives would be very good indeed, but if we had to compare them to Bill Gate’s or Elon Musk’s lives we would feel deprived. Both of those guys are not living hedonistic lives. They’re happy to spend their lives working. But they do have more possessions. Personally, I would like to live a socialist life, but I know that does not produce the best life for everyone. But I am happy to live a life of few creature comforts, spending my leisure reading and writing and messing around on my computer.
