    They're telling me how worthless I am.

    .. They're telling me I'm a failure. They're telling me I should kill myself and make the lives of everyone else bearable. They're telling me to cut myself. They're telling me that there's nothing worth waiting for. They're telling me that everything is my fault. They bring up my...

    About an hour ago, I heard a loud "huh"

    or maybe it was "ha", I'm not really sure which. But it came from behind me. I was the only one upstairs (and still am). It's strange, I jumped when I heard it.

    Always My Name

    It's always various people, all people I know or know of, saying my name in a beckoning sort of tone. Although I can't fathom where they're beckoning me because I've gotten them in both California and Nebraska, the two states in which I've lived. But once-- only once-- I heard an...

    They're Around Me

    Often when I wanna go to bed and it is very quiet I start to hear the voices. They don't talk to me or about me. It is as if there were people in the room with me that are talking to each other and I can hear them. I hear other people's conversations in my head. Not fully through...

    It's like sometimes they are in my head

    and other times outside, whispering in my ear. I can't really understand what the voices say. I guess I got used to it.

    These voices aren't actually anything unknown,

    I mean the voices I hear are people I know, like family and they sorta echo in my head, but they sound so real like it's some sort of memory of them saying my name, keeps coming back into my head all of a sudden. But they do sound real, like out in the open kinda real. Though I...

    Voices From The Dead

    Everywhere I go, I hear voices crying out, asking to be saved. But it's not the earthly voices that I hear, it's the ones that only few people are capable of hearing. The ones that you can't drown out. I may set the standard for crazy, but this isn't a matter of being crazy...

    They like to play "games". Sometimes the games are harmless or even entertaining. But then there's the one where they compare me to every person they see. Luckily I'm at Walmart so the voices aren't winning this time. I usually don't win. They still find people prettier than me...

    What do your voices say?

    Mine are sometimes nice and most of the time mean. They have a religous theme and use the people around me to talk **** about. I am on meds and they have gone away. Just wondering if most people hear the same thing or are all voices different?
