You said, "I think you need to really feel that your therapist BELIEVES you when you talk about the voices." Yes, that's absolutely it and that's why the idea of the game so offended me. I don't think he believes me. Did you ever feel that about your therapist? But your voices were discovered in therapy so maybe it's different. I can just imagine me saying to him "I don't want to play because you don't believe me anyway." Then he would reply, in true therapyspeak, "Why do you say that? What makes you think I don't believe you?" Ugh, I hate therapyspeak. Well buddy, how about the way you turn completely around in your chair and face the wall, how about the way you put a scowl on your face. It's not in me to talk to him like that though.

Anyway, I do use the "two voice writing" whenever I know that something is wrong with one of the voices but they are reluctant to talk to me. It helps draw them out. But I do have a lifetime of listening to them so they are fairly fluent in my head.

I definitely don't want to integrate and my therapist knows this, but he probably thinks that there is nothing to integrate anyway. There are parts of me that are capable of doing things that I would not be capable of, there are soothing, comforting parts of me that I will not give up.
