My housekeeper, age 44, states she "hears voices" most of the time. These voices curse her and belittle her. She shuts her eyes momentarily, and holds her breath. Since I have never had this "problem", I am at a loss to help her. She is afraid to tell her physician, as she can not afford to be "hospitalized". She thinks these "voices" may be the "devil"?? Does any one have any information that could be helpful to me in trying to help her??
Thank you.
