I've had a diagnosis of bipolar disorder for the last ten years. I struggle with hearing voices. My mood seems fine at the moment but the voices are really loud and intrusive and I wonder if anyone has any tips for dealiing with them? They're beginning to interfere with my daily life - I'm struggling to sleep and concentrate on anything. I saw my GP yesterday and he gave me some temazepam which helped with the sleep but the voices are still just as loud. I don't want to use the temazepam too much as it's addictive. The crisis team won't help me as I don't want to kill myself therefore they don't class it as a crisis. The voices do tell me to harm myself and I know that doing that would quieten them but I really don't want to do that. Any help would be appreciated.
