These voices often tell people to do certain things. These people who have the disorder opened up about what exactly these mysterious voices actually say to them...

My schizophrenia is back. Had voices whispering in my head saying. "You should kill yourself." Took a minute to get it to stop.

I have schizophrenia, tonight the voices in my head got me to cut the words "fat" and "die" into one of my thighs. They got me to cut 20 times into the other. Looks like I'll be going on meds soon...

Some people hear voices that belong to people they actually know.

My form of schizophrenia is different. The voices I hear are from people who know me, who've seen my bad side. Real People. Mostly adults.

One of the worst parts of schizophrenia is hearing familiar voices but originating from somewhere else. Sometimes I hear the person I'm talking to simultaneously talking about something else.

Voices don't always make specific demands.

Is it schizophrenia if the voices don't always command things but rather ramble and insult
