Most of the time its just chatter. Sort of like having a tv on in the next room or hearing a muffled conversation in a busy restaurant.

Ive heard all sorts of things though. When it is clear it is generally only a few words. A few times it has been significantly longer than that. Threats. Promises. All sorts of things.

Usually its male voices. Usually the content is either religious or threatening in some way. They suggest danger sometimes and at other times they directly threaten it. Sometimes though they are very kind. Sometimes its just the same word repeated. Sometimes its laughter. I hate the laughter. That my mind would be so cruel to me to send all this scary stuff and then laugh at me as I struggle to deal with it is just messed up.

But for the most part... I cant understand them. They sound differeny at times. Like different crowds of people. Sometimes they are high pitched, sometimes they are low pitched, sometimes they are angry sounding, sometimes they are gravelly, sometimes whispering. All sorts of things

My visual hallucinations tend to be more elaborate. And if its supported by an auditory hallucination those tend to be more elaborate too

My voices are spirits I'm talking to living, dead, spiritual. It's like real life conversations with them. The meds shut them out.

During my biggest, longest episode, God was talking to me...telling me to do bizarre and dangerous things. For the most part, I did them. Then, during that same episode, it got really, really dark and
Possible trigger:
That episode lasted Iím not sure how long but more than 6 months. But it took me 5 months to decide that the voices were hallucinations and not real. Thatís why I went back to a pdoc. Since then, I only hear them from time to time. It is usually voices whispering things I canít make out. One of the more often things that happens (which actually happened last night) is I will be listening to music in my headphones and I will hear whispering in the music. Almost like a transistor radio. I have also heard thunder that my husband hasnít.
