Negative voices in head


I have for years been hearing voices in my head that make predictions about what is going to happen in my future. The predictions are negative and I find them to be very upsetting. These predictions usually are along the line of “this will never happen” and are in a voice that I recognize as my own. I have found the predictions to at times come true and other times not come true. Is there anything I can do to stop this or to better deal with this, I feel almost debilitated by it and it is giving me an extremely negative outlook on life in general. I remember a time where this did not occur as well. I do not take street drugs or drink so that is not the issue. I have not been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but this is the only forum I have found that deals with this subject matter. Any opinions or advice from individuals familiar with this would be appreciated.

Thank you and may god help us all.

If it’s your own voice and you know it’s not real, it’s not likely a hallucination; however, that doesn’t mean it’s any less upsetting for you. I think (no medical experience) that you may want to see a counselor to deal with this anxiety. Negative self-talk can be extremely debilitating. I wish you the best of luck with this problem, and please know that you DON’T have to suffer alone!


I would contact a psychiatrist, he/she will decide what is the most appropriate treatment for you(medications or therapy). :slight_smile:
