I'm glad that you're no longer experiencing those unpleasant thoughts.

As for hearing positive or negative voices, I think it varies from person to person. It is possible to hear all kinds of things. My voices were all negative and occurred when I had a very depressed mood. I think the term is mood congruent. People with schizophrenia can experience mood incongruent hallucinations, which I interpret as just being random disturbances that are unrelated to the person's mood. I have not experienced it, but I've heard that bipolers in a manic state sometimes experience mood congruent hallucinations, which would be very pleasant. (for example, god tells you that you're the messiah. something like that).
