Just passing my mind

LostsenseLostsense Posts: 1,331 Fanatical Poster
So for me I have my own thoughts of suicide and I also hear voices which are violent ways of suicide, ways that I wouldn't necessary want to go by but my question is do they actually ever go away? Is it that they won't go away until I obey what these voices are wanting me to do? I know they come in waves but the strong wave always keeps coming back intensively and impulsively. I just want them gone forever. Maybe then I can live.

    Hey Steph.
    I know how frustating that can be. I know GPS are really bad but they could refer you to a service to get therapy. Iam having therpay and i think its starting to help so there is hope. And theres always medication that could help.
    I dont really know about hearing vioces but i know that they do go away eventually.

    Hi Steph, how are getting on this week? Sorry that you're hearing voices and yes, it can sometimes get pretty frustrating. From personal experience, they do go away and weaken when you realise that they are not true or real thoughts. The mind is strong sometimes, and can lead you to believe things - especially during periods of depression. Finding a hobby or something you enjoy doing to draw attention away from it helps. Even something that can change your emotion like watching a horror movie. Are there any activities you enjoy doing?

    If you ever think that you're in danger, please don't hesitate to call your local A&E or Samaritans on 116 123. If it helps to chat, please do reach out on here.

    I've got a nurse coming to see me in the morning from CAHMS for a chat so I'll update her on the voices and stuff (as I haven't seen anyone for a while as my Care Coordinator is away) and I've got a medication review on the 1st (as I mentioned in another thread about getting meds for flashbacks I will do this then, evan though I will probably mention it tomorrow).

    Oh you have heard voices Nikki? I enjoy swimming I really need to start that again soon and I do like movies but I will probably cry evan watching a Horror lol.

    Thanks Nikki x
