The Truth About Voices from a Sister with a Voice.

There once was a girl group called SWV. SWV stood for Sisters with Voices. I hear voices and my name is Ayesha Karim. I am a human being. I hear voices and I have Schizophrenia. I know I have a mental illness. The truth about the illness I have is that mean voices say things to people with my illness. I am a Person. When I am hearing my voices they sometimes tell me you are not who you think you are so to speak. I was told by a therapist that I can challenge my voices. I was so happy that day because they say things about me that I wouldn’t say to somebody I didn’t like. I like myself. That’s a real accomplishment. I am African American.
