    Anxiety and Hearing Voices..

    I have suffered anxiety and depression for about 10 years. I have been on 7 different types of anti-depressants which have only ever had negative effects. Have tried several different psychologists to no effect. I have had substance and gambling addictions during the past 5 years. Even though these times of addiction can worsen my case, even in good periods of my life the symptoms remain. I have poor self-image and paranoia. I hear voices multiple times in every hour of every day. Although I don't hear them in my head they are external and seem to stem from actual faint noise of conversation. I 'think' I hear people talking negatively about me and saying derogatory statements about me. These have been confirmed on a couple of occasions so now I can't trust my own brain and what I am hearing. I am currently suffering anxiety 24/7 which is extreme at work to the point I have had to leave, and have started experiencing panic attacks. Find it hard to be in public. 25-year-old male.
