This is interesting to hear how she describes and interacts with the voices in her head as a Schizophrenic.
I just learned that a childhood friend of mine has be hospitalized yet again for the same mental illness. So this video gives a bit of insight into what she experiences and what could be possible if only she would take her medication and face that she has a serious problem.

I once saw someone with Schizophrenia talking to their voices. And they were able to acknowledge that it was voices and that the voices wanted to know what was going on in the "real" conversation that the guy was having. That was more than 10 years ago and I have never gotten over it.

It was a black guy in his 20s. He looked normal and seemed otherwise normal until he started whispering off to the side.

Sad indeed....

i don't think that many of the people that take meds for mental illness are that lucid while on them
That did run through my mind too....if she was on meds or managing without them for the time being. I get the sense the "talk" aspect of her therapy has helped her because very aware of the voices and to integrate them into her daily life.

I have a cousin who suffers from it. Whenever he's off his meds he believe he's God and invincible.
Someone said to be earlier that religion and mental illness dont mix......my friend sees the devil in everything and everyone. She thought she could pray away her illness so she always stops her meds at some point. Sad thing is, she becomes incredibly dangerous to herself and others then because she feels she needs to slay all the demons around her.

LR, why do you scorn paragraph indentations? lol
It's too late at night to read that without paragraph breaks.
