I am really stuggling with constant bullying attacking voices that I hear wherever I go.
Its very distressing. I want to lash out, but what good will that do?
Medications are helping but I get agitated. Voices makes it feels like everyone is out to get me. I am resilient but it just feels like i am fighting a loosing cause.
Fighting bullies in real life is easier because you know who they are. My illness makes it look like i am surrounded by bullies all the time.
Does anyone have any advice for me? Any tricks ? any good books to read how to cope with derogative voices? Thanks!

@Mavrixx9 Hi Mavrixx9 how long have you been on your meds? if it is for a short time you might need to give the meds more time to settle the voices. Also have you been back to your doc about your voices? What I did was all negative when I had attacking voices so I am of little help unfortunately .... go back to your doc and maybe your meds can be tweaked. Love greenpea

I recently stopped paying attention to my voices @Mavrixx9 after having them for ten years.
I agree with @Emo_forever that playing music makes a big difference.
I listen to quiet music for the mind on my and am able to lessen my thoughts and walk around outside with my headphones. It is still troubling me a bit.
I guess this is a distraction but it works. I hope you find find talking about it helps. It is hard to navigate and hope for the best for you.

mine arent loud mostly so as long as i have other noise around me mostly i can ignore them and pretend it was the tv or the music but sometimes i just tell them straight up to F-off which sometimes works other times not. also talking to people face to face sometimes helps like forces you to focus on their words but thats just me idk sorry i am terrible help.

Its been 2 weeks. The things that have helped lately;
1) Chamomile tea with turmeric, black pepper, ginger, lemon slices
2) Facing the world - not isolating myself - to suffer is to endure is it not ?
3) Steam vapour inhalation - eucayptus and lavender oil
4) Eating home cooked meals instead of junk food
5) No more candy - sugars
6) More raw fruits
GP said perhaps eating rubbish and too much sugar contributed to voices, the depression and distress that comes from it.
I am grateful I still have that fighting spirit - there may not be a cure for us voice hearers yet so we will have to endure until cured. This too shall pass.
