Re: what to believe
when people talk about having voices i am never sure if you mean voices in your head that take over your inner monologue and feel like thoughts that belong to someone else, or if you are actually hearing voices that come from within but sound the same in your ears as "real" sounds. i've had both, the former because of obsessive compulsive traits and anxiety, and the latter from my schizophrenia. which one is true for you? the former can be debilitating but is not considered a sign of psychosis, but both can be awful.
