“I’m okay”

“I see. Why is that? It’s supposed to help with the voices. Remember we want the voices to go away?”

“No…you guys want the voices to go away”

“You don’t?”

“No. I changed my mind. I don’t want them to go away anymore”

“How come?”

“Because when the voices go away I’m all by myself again. I’m lonely”
