I told my therapist about him the other day. I could see her looking at my like I'm completely and totally insane. She then proceeded to ask me loads of questions about bipolar disorder. I have never been manic. I checked with people around me too, they said I haven't. I can't be schizophrenic, I'm far to organised and aware of myself.

I'm 21, on citalopram for severe depression, but no other drugs, leagl or otherwise. Anyone got any ideas? I could really use some help.

  • Violet , first I would say that your Therapist was way out of line to look at you in any way that made you uncomfortable when you were opening up to her. I would find a new one right away. They are trained to hear these things all day every day, there is no reason for her or him to have this type of reaction. That is like a doctor acting revolted by a patient saying they hadn't taken a crap in a week. Very unprofessional! Now, back to your problem. You did not say what exactly the voice was saying to you. Is the voice a familiar one? Does it tell you to do things? What kind of thiongs if it does? How long has the voice been there? And has it ever been there before , went away for awhile and then come back? Since you do not fit the profile for bi polar, have you had any tramalately? Loss of someone close, sudden changes in your life? Try and think of something that you may have been through or that has dramatically changed your life style or routine. These are just some things to think about. We all have defense mechanisms that we use to confront certain traumas in our lives and when some changes may seem good , they may subconciously be disturbing so out come are DM to the rescue. Just like when we were children, we had an invisible friend or our teddy to talk to when we were scared and Mommy was not right there. As adults we would look pretty silly with a teddy bear , so we have these DM. Sometimes we are not even aware of them and they surprise us. Or sometimes we just forget about them until we need them. I am not sure if this is what your voice is all about, but I just wanted to give you something to think about until you got a better answer. Good luck.

  • Firstly, thank you. That's the first sensible thing anyone's said. But the thing is that I have no major problems and never have. My life is as close to perfect as you can get without it getting boring, that's if you ignore the voice and depression. I still have issues to deal with from time to time, but no more or less than anyone else. Interesting that you mention imaginary friends. I had an imaginary enemy. He used to make me keep my colouring neat. That's it though. I've often wondered if they are the same personality. I would love to think he's just a defence mechanism, but he's just so negative. When I'm on a depressive episode he reinforces all the negitivity I'm feeling anyway and adds to it. He claims he's in control of my life and that I should always follow what he says. I don't. That would be silly. If I'm feeling ok, he can be quite helpful. he provides inspiration, he's creative and to some extent controls my impulsivity. He can also get pretty down himself, but in an angry way. My GP is sending me to a proper psychiatrist now, so hopefully I should get some help. Thanks again xxx

  • I am part of a group which believes that your are under psychic attack by another person. Not a good person as a good person would never do such a thing to deny the liberty of free thought of another. These people ("practicers") will like to incite you into actions which will cause you problems, put you in the category of offender and make your life very difficult at times. They are cowards as they hide behind the bushes to throw rocks at you.As far as I know, there is not much you can do about it. What you must remember, is that you will take responsibility for any actions you commit. Even if you think it is ultimately something they caused, this will not serve as a defense for your actions.Remember, God is on your side and will make sure you're ultimately OK. He will not do the same for this practicer. The practicer will ultimately suffer. Remember this.There is a body of evidence to support the "entrainment" process, which is a possible cause of your symptoms. According to this theory, an electromagnetic device can be focused toward you for a period of time at a particular "brain-interfering" frequency which the practicer is also subjected to. The result is a telepathic link. The person doing this is trained to do this. The constant negative verbal input is designed to control you, although it truly only controls the way you feel (which can seem very controlling).The legal system is not very sympathetic. They worry you will be influenced to commit crimes. Especially violent crimes. Top level government is very tight-lipped about all of this. It is sometimes blamed on a secret government program, sometimes on Scientology, sometimes on a renegade reject of either of the above.Just remember -- don't be influenced to do anything illegal. You will be held responsible. Just remember that God will make this person pay -- you don't have to worry. Just a test from God (although sometimes it seems too cruel for that).Get married. Have kids. Get a life. These things will all provide you strength and relief.God bless and good luck!

I could really use some help.Check out info on DID (dissociative Indentity disorder, multiple personalty disorder).If the voices are IN your head (instead of outward), chances are you have DID. Though DID is not common, it is not rare either. I've had it forever before I was properly diagnosed. At first, it's totally overwhelming and confusing to grasp the concept of it all, but believe me, you'll be fine. Do you what to hear more?

  • It sounds like to me something of a evil nature. Pray to God and tell him your problem. Because it's of a negative nature its surely not Godly! God will intervene, trust and believe!! God bless you!!
