“How I Cope With the Three Unwanted Voices That Live Inside my Head”


“Eventually, finally, I agree to visit my GP, who tells me I am experiencing ‘auditory hallucinations’. He prescribes an antipsychotic for a week, which does not help. What now? I’m frightened of being labelled mentally ill. My mind has always been my strength and it remains clear and lucid – I just have this weird, confusing and scary phenomenon happening in parallel. Too embarrassed to consider a psychiatrist, I decide my only option is to fight back.”
