Ok, so i've been through almost all of the medicines there is for hallucinations and delusions. But none of them work completely. What I mean is they work for a second, and then it adapts to the meds and doesn't work anymore. My psychiatrist doesn't even know how bad it is. He thinks I can function like any normal person when really I'm having a tough time. I am diagnosed with schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression. I don't take really good care of myself but I want to learn. Sometimes I feel like going for a run and never coming back. Everything is tough on me and I don't understand why. I always wanna die. I'm always hearing voices but they don't like it when I tell people. What should I do? Should I set up another appointment with my psychiatrist? There's nothing he can do at this point.

That sounds really frustrating if you feel you have tried all the different types of medications for your hallucinations and nothing seems to be working. Since you say that your psychiatrist doesn't know how bad things are for you, then it's definitely for the best that you set up another appointment and be honest about how you feel the medications aren't doing much for you. He may be able to increase the dosage or change/combine your medications. Even if he can't do much, it's still best to be honest.

It sounds like you are really struggling with your mental health and when this happens it can make self-care and other things seem impossible. I found it helpful to think about all the different things I want to work on within self care, and to start with the smallest. For me, my hygiene used to be terrible because I just felt so numb and exhausted, so I started with the smallest thing I could think of- brushing my teeth, and forced myself to do that everyday. Slowly, I added more elements to self-care and in doing so I have noticed that my mood improves as well. Perhaps you could do something similar?

If you feel suicidal then it's best to tell someone or call a hotline. Things are really tough for you right now but with the right treatment and support, things will get better.

see if there's a Hearing Voices support group nearby. we have one. I've learned a lot about it, even though I don't hear voices they invite me anyway. maybe because I just accept people and connect with them well.

anyway, U.K. and Australia have many hearing voices groups! they are way ahead of America. they have websites and books and have collected many effective ways of dealing with voices. Plus it feels good to know you are not the only one.

that way you can be OK with hearing voices.

(it aslso helps if Dr. has honest feedback so he knows how patient is doing and what works and what does not.)

if medicine doesn't fully help, possibly these other techniques people in the U.K. have developed might help.

or Eastern medicine. all that yoga and stuff, there's actually something to it.
