Pretty interesting article on auditory halucinations in schizophrenics and new treatments for it. There are some pretty horrifying stories about voices advocating suicide, telling you you're Jesus and then making fun of you for thinking you're Jesus, etc., but then there's this bit:

A small minority of the patients said the voices they heard were always or almost always supportive and positive in tone.

What's that like? Having voices in your head just going, "Great job, guy!" "Keep up the good work!" "Lookin' gooooood!" Must be nice.
