and recently I wrote to my mom:
No, I haven't talked to David (outside of my head, anyway) in many years, and don't intend to, ever. The voice is in my head. I don't think I'm hearing him speak to me, like he's in the room, outside of my head. But I hear him like you would your own (vocalized) thoughts. Does that make sense? It seems like telepathy. I believe it's telepathy. But the meds help, so it does have something to do with brain chemistry. Some days are better than others. All those "lines" were on the 8th. Sometimes I talk back. That is, I think vocalized thoughts directed to David, like "what the hell is your problem? Leave me alone." I've thought that one many times. My head has been quieter, more healthy/sane, since then. In addition to the voice, sometimes I get headshocks, and also sometimes I feel chest pains. Those are my 3 symptoms.
if you were wondering, in brief, I wear boxers!
