I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and DID. I am confused whether the voices are alters or just the Schizophrenia. They are very unkind and scary.

    I’m no medical professional, however I was under the comprehension that auditory hallucinations feel like they are perceived as auditory stimuli. As if they were happening in the space around you. However, the voice of an alter has been likened to the voice your brain uses when you read or monologue your thoughts. Only, that internal voice, as an alter, has the ability of having their own thoughts and opinions. Alters aren’t always nice. And that can be hard to deal with. But I wish you the best of luck in learning you.

    I’ve heard alters are internal and auditory hallucinations are external, one is heard inside your head and the other is heard from the outside like when hearing a dog bark, hope this helps! ❤️
