When I was struggling to come to terms with the death of my wife, I went to her church to light a candle for her. As I stood before the Lord on the Cross, I don’t know why but I said out loud, “I don’t know what to do....” I heard a voice in my head say, “You know what to do!” I began taking classes, and the following Easter I received my First Communion at 60 years of age.

Like a scream but sort of silent
Living out my nightmares
Voices repeating me
We reflect your hopes and fears”
Voices discussing me
“Others steal your thoughts

No wait, that comes from audio clips from talk radio.
When the water’s on in my kitchen sink and I’m in the next room, it sounds just like people talking. It’s really creepy. I can never make out what they’re saying, so I guess I’m ok.
How would sessions with Hasan help?

Well I’m OK and so amd I. :-)
I used to think I heard voices in my head until I realized it was just my dog talking to me.
Exactly. They’re probably, in many cases, not very competent to begin with.
But my voices told me all about yours a long time ago.
There are already laws preventing those who are mentally ill from having guns; federal law regarding prohibited persons implicitly requires a court hearing, as it should be. The individual would have to have been involuntarily committed (requires a court hearing) or adjuticated mentally defective (court hearing also), preserving their right to due process and protecting their God given rights.
Four out of five voices in my head told me not to click on this post; of course I’ve never been one to run with the pack.
