I hate it! The voices


#1

I have OCD, Anxiety and now I keep seeing a face. A white face or something watching me idk if it’s my imagination but it happens like 10 times a day. I hear my name being called all the time and I feel like I don’t belong.

Drowning out with music helps me.

Hey friend,

I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling, but I want to let you know that in this community you have found a place where you do belong.

I don’t know if the face is a symptom of schizophrenia or something else, but whatever it is, just know you are not crazy or out of place. Just like any mental illness, schizophrenia does not make you crazy. There is a huge stigma, and those lies are not true.

However, it cannot be an easy thing to deal with. From what I have heard, there is no cure, but the best ways to cope are finding professional help and possibly taking medication to ease and reduce the symptoms. Therapy/counseling is something everyone could use, so I strongly suggest taking advantage of it if finances and other things allow.

Whatever you do to cope and move forward with this, please know that you are not alone and that you belong here. We love you, we believe in you, and you can do this.

Hold fast.
