voice free

I know the voices aren't gone forever.  I know sometimes they will still try to exercise their power.  But for now they are quiet and I am grateful.  The change happened so quickly that I don't know what happened or even when.  I just know there is no voice accusing me, no voice berating me, no voice torturing me, no voice gripping me with ice hooks demanding that I abuse my body.  It has been so long since I have felt this kind of contentment that I don't remember when I last felt it.  There is peace, contentment and joy I had long forgotten.

And I am so very thankful, no matter how long or short it may last!


  1. I am SO happy for you and I hope it lasts a long time! Remember, even when the voices become strong again, if you accept them for what they are and let them pass, they will go away and you will feel like this again!

  2. That is wonderful! And must feel wonderful too...I know how horrible that voice is to listen to, day and night, 24/7, on and on and on...

    Enjoy the respite from it, and I will keep my fingers crossed for you that it is gone for good :o)
