When you hear voices what do you think of them?
Some people think their voices are significant or have meaning. Thats what gets you into trouble with voices if they command you to do things and you decide to act on it.

Also they can be distracting or disturbing.

So living with voices can be a challenge if you have had medication blocking them for years. If you stopped theres high chance they would return.

I have to take mine the rest of my life for delusions and voices. It took a while to get used to the idea.

I’m tired of how I am when I don’t take my meds…that’s worse, so now I faithfully take them. Lesser of two evils.

I sometimes get confused by my voices because they say some pretty intelligent things it makes me start to believe theyre spirits or im psychic

Hearing voices doesnt necessarily mean you are psychotic.

I don’t know enough about your circumstances to be able to answer this.

Yeah mine also will say intelligent things. Which if im not careful would lure me into believing there intelligent beings from another world or religious figures or even deceased geniuses bringing forth revolutionary knowledge.

But it all ends in chaos so best not to pay attention to them whether its intelligent, good or bad things being said.

Probably homie. I had to come to terms with the fact that I can’t drink coffee or smoke weed ever again. Alcohol is still ok, but weed and coffee both make my thoughts race and I start making bad connections. I will probably be taking invega and CBD for the rest of my life, though. It sucks but it is the only way. It’s better to be in logical reality than hell, and me unmedicated is hell.

I’ll answer this in a year. Right now the best I can say is it’s a definite mayble.

I didn’t get diagnosed till I was 29 and getting on meds was the start of me actually living. I don’t get voices but I get insidious paranoia. It ruled all my relationships and my work career and it was getting on meds where I actually started to live properly like most other people. I also have bad depression. It’s nuts and without meds I’d be lost. Medications aren’t a bad thing but you have to be proactive with your care.
