    I have an extra voice in my head thats louder

    than the other and it disagrees with everything I say/think unless I say that I want it gone. Its the same voice as the other but just louder and it responds without me having to think of what its going to say. I've had it for as long as I can remember, is it schizophrenia?

    One soul can't live without another?

    Perfect. What if there are two souls in one body? Those two can exist together and what is more they can love each other. But the things change when one hurts another. Then you try to get rid of one. It is really very hard to do it. Oh, it is your personal hell.
