Hello.

It seems hearing voices is a major problem you are facing right now. And the other problem is the need to hurt yourself. It will be difficult to diagnose anything online, but your symptoms do seem to be a part of psychosis. Please consult a Psychiatrist for a thorough evaluation and diagnosis.

Take care.

Most deff tell your parents what is going on...and ask them to have you see a doctor to see about getting you a proper diagnosis and meds to help you with that...I was about 8 when my voice and seeing things started.

more details will be necessary, like how loud is the voice, is it male or female? when do u hear it? approx what time? we will also need a case history which would include your family details and so on. which means that it is important you consult a psychologist regarding this.

sometimes the voices can also be a result of high susceptibility to your own 'mind' its called sub vocal rehearsal; mistaking the sub vocal rehearsal for someone else's voice can sometimes happen. so go get it checked and if its anything m sure they can cure it. auditory hallucinations are common and can be treated effectively.

This is Satan and never listen to him, He wants you to kill yourself or hurt yourself very bad. Father God has special plans for you and God will never tell you to do wrong. Get baptized and get in a good church. and get some holy oil have it put in the alter for seven days and put it on your four head every night as a cross.

This might help
Just cuz you hear voices in your head influencin yOu don't mean yOu have to listen, right? Just like how people in the physical realm tell you to do things, peer pressure is what they call it. You don't have to listen. Stop "tuning" into the demonic influence, listen to your own intuition and feelings and not some "other" being or entity's.

How are you? Godwilling I hope you are doing well. I know it’s very difficult but you must try to ignore them. The best way to treat you enemies is to be silent and work out ways to get closer to God. It’s very difficult but with every difficulty there is ease.

I never experienced schizophrenia at a young age so I don’t understand how a child’s cope. You do have my sympathy and I wish you the best. Try to concentrate on building your relationship with God. God will reward you and protect you. It is a fight but you not alone there are Angels fighting with you. As a child it is difficult so I’m going to give you easy solution that I hope will help you.


Write in a Book to God.

Write about anything in your life. From your dreams in life and evens silly things like what cartoons you like. Remember your Parents, family and friends and pray for them. Try writing about good subjects. About you day at school and try thinking about heaven a lot and the possibilities that God will create for you as a reward for having patience through your sickness. Mines is to become a Jedi Smile I know it’s dreams but in heaven dreams become a reality, so never stop dreaming.

Read God’s names
The most important thing in life is God is ONE. Stick to this and everything will be alright. God loves you and won’t let you go.

For a child just saying God’s name will make Him happy.

The following is for when you get older. I hope that my advice helps.

In Islam, God has many names which relate to his personality. This will help one understand God better which will help you realize that his with you through your sickness and that he cares for you God willing.

The following are examples are God’s names

God: Allah
God the Merciful : ar-Raheem
God the Healer : al-Qayoom
God the Compassionate : ash-Shafee

Try finding a name that relates to you. With me it is God the preserver of faith (al- Muqmeen) Reason being is that without him I would have lost my faith along time ago.

Please note: When one feels up to it, a good idea is to make relevant prayers by each of Allah’s names. For instance God the healer (al-Qayoom), Here one makes prayers for ones health as well as for one’s family and friends etc


Medication
You need to find a psychiatrist that can help find the right medication. You must take your meds. This will make things easier. You also must tell your parents as soon as possible. You need your family when you are sick.

I hope I help you in some way. If you need someone to talk to. Email me ok.

Take care

Imagine the sound dissapearing from your body and surrounding area, dont use numbers to imagine it dissapearing, just make it go away, this takes practice.
