what are the voices in your head like? is it scary, or is it the normal kind people don't worry about. even then, what are they like? what coping skills do you use so you don't react to them in real life, or to separate yourself from your thoughts when they are relentless?

      The voices in my head r more like intrusive thoughts. They happen all day. They’re usually about doing harmful things to myself or others. Im so used to it, its not that scary anymore. Instead of my brain telling my to harm someone (like my friend) my brain also forces me to watch myself do it. Its like a video playing in my mind of it. Its pretty vivid and i cant do anything about it either. I dont have any coping mechanisms for it.

      The voice inside my head repeats back all of the anxieties and hurtful things that have been said about me in my lifetime. They have never gone away and are constantly there. I myself struggle with coping skills, and the days that it gets bad I can't help but act on them, and as a result I feel that the people around me hate it just as much as myself. I understand the struggle and would like advice as well. It's not necessarily "scary" for me but more so exhausting because my brain literally never shuts up. I'm constantly anxious about everything around me and about everything happening

      They’re mostly voices of people who’ve said hurtful things in my past So, yes it is scary for me

      i deal with intrusive thoughts. meditation is a technique to make your mind as quiet as possible. i do it and it feels like your mind just took a breath of fresh air after

      The voices in my head are sometimes ear splittingly loud sometimes so silent it hurts just as bad. It's a system though so it's more complex than that. Right now we live in agony so it is a lot of hell inside and out.
