Smart Voices

While talking to a very amicable, pleasant schizophrenic man today:

Him: The voices in my head, they tell me all sorts of things.

Me: Like what?

Him: Don't eat raw bacon.

Me:  ... smart voices!

  1. Reminds me of the psych patient who told his dr he was hearing voices telling him to kill the dr, which disturbed the pt, because he didn’t want to hurt the dr.

  2. Maybe one of the few times it would be wise to listen to the voices, haha.

  3. I’m a psych nurse; one of the things I need to ask my patients is are they hearing any voices. My personal favorite for the follow-up question is “are they saying anything useful?” You’d be surprised. About a third of the time the answer is “yes”.
