This is going to sound crazy, but I actually hear voices. This is not as uncommon as you might think. I’m actually sure that there are many healthy people out there that perhaps hear voices but are able to just ignore them. I guess I have become fairly good at my selective hearing, but lately things have been getting worse. I have tried all types of medications, but I finally decided that I needed to be checked into a mental health facility. It’s kind of funny; when I checked into the place, the voices were basically fighting about the A/C being too strong or too weak. I can’t tell you how annoying that was because I thought the temperature control in the facility was just right. Sometimes I find myself getting terrible headaches from this mental illness, and they can become rather awful. There are times when I just want to scream to just make the voices hush! This is why I felt the need to be checked into this mental health facility. My doctor actually agreed that it was a good decision of mine. I’m really to the point where I feel it’s rather challenging to function out there in the real world. Even just trying to drive, I get so distracted by these annoying voices. In those cases, I will usually just blast the air conditioning and turn up the radio! Sometimes the air conditioning surprisingly helps, but not always. Recently, my doctor let me know that he found a new medication that he wanted me to try. I agreed that it couldn’t hurt, so I started taking these new meds. I was rather amazed, the voices actually stopped! I certainly don’t want to jinx it, but I am really hopeful now. Perhaps soon I can get out of this mental health facility and actually enjoy life for a change.
