Thank you for writing this. It is exactly what I have been dealing with and realizing myself. As a diagnosed schizoaffective person, I spent years in some psychosis never hearing voices I believed to be my own thoughts but from other people and entities speaking to me. Over the past year my delusions began to slip away as well as most all of my symptoms except hearing voices. Those voices never told me to harm myself but would take up a lot of my time stuck in my head conversing with them. Eventually they did attack me, and I lashed out, wanting to hit them and scream. I got so desperate I tried a newer antipsychotic for a short time. Eventually they went away but mostly they got quiet when I quit the stupid medication. Since then I have gone thru many changes. I thought I was just hearing my own thoughts but in different vocal voices. Usually they are the same voices cycled over and over and I would eventually accidentally personify each one. I have learned that these really are not good coping mechanisms… These are NOT my own thoughts. I shouldn’t be responding to them. They aren’t real! It’s like my thought processes became fragmented, and I guess at times they served purposes and were mostly good. My brain has been trained to reward itself for having my thinking so fragmented. It made me rethink how dopamine is linked to the reward system and how many antipsychotic meds target dopamine. I am trying very hard to retrain my brain to stop responding to these delusional hallucinations. It isn’t easy to just stop overnight!! But I know this isn’t normal to keep accepting them as just my thoughts being heard like that. It really is about stopping the reward process on my own and ignore these things bc they aren’t real. I am beginning to see that each time I thought I was in remission of all symptoms, these voices would come back. But it’s great to read how others also reject their diagnoses and deal with healing on their own. I wish you and your daughter the best.
