When all of my other coping mechanisms fail, I take an OTC sleep aid and fall asleep. [NOTE: Please consult with your doctor first to make sure this is ok.] It’s not my go-to solution, but it’s better than launching myself into a psychotic episode that might last for days.
I’ve found that the best way to lessen my auditory hallucinations is to always listen to music or television. Whether I’m at work, at home, or even falling asleep, I alway have something on. I find that my brain attaches voices and sounds to the TV or music and I don’t notice them as much. This works better when combined with medication to tone down the hallucinations.
