The voices want me to (TW)

Burn myself and drink antifreeze. I won’t be doing either of those things, but I’ve been really depressed today and I did genuinely consider it. I hate it, I hate this illness. I just want to enjoy life, why is that so hard :sob:

Sorry, I just needed somewhere to vent

Probably a wise choice :stuck_out_tongue:. Sorry you are having a rough time HannahBanana. I see you changed your name. Dammit I hate that. Now I am probably going to forget who you were once you change your avatar. :frowning_face_with_open_mouth:

I had one of those weird days yesterday. Totally out of the blue but was fighting off the blue…just on the edge of feeling down. I’m sorry you had a bad day but ride it out. I wish I learned to surf better when I was younger…just rode it out!

I don’t like calling them voices…
It gives them too much power over me.

I prefer them audio hallucinations. Just some irregular activity in the sensory systems of the brain that’s all. that’s all. It’s not even real.

I’m sorry, @HannahBanana. :banana: Your post was 11 hours ago, so I’m hoping you’re doing better, now. How are you doing??

Here’s a piggy, for good luck. :pig2:

Sorry to hear your experiencing this. It’s good you have insight into your voices and have decided not to burn yourself and drink antifreeze, that wouldn’t end well.

When I was psychotic I had a tactile hallucination where parts of my body and sometimes my whole body felt like it was burning up. It wasn’t painful but it was annoying, uncomfortable and disturbing.

Thank you all so much for your support :heart:

I ended up having an impromptu jam session with my roommate (I play bass) which helped with the depression, and my meds took care of the voices.

Overall, a rough day, but I’m looking forward to today and trying to keep a positive attitude!

Why do hallucinations tend to sound like the most vicious of bullies?

Although, the ones that I thought were non-American seemed much nicer.
