It’s unclear what may be causing you to hear voices and experience paranoia. Your traumatic history may be a contributor but given the severity of your current symptoms, it should not be the focus on your concern. It is more important to consult a mental health professional who can properly treat your symptoms. Once your symptoms are better controlled, you can then explore how your past might be impacting your overall mental health.
If you already have developed relationships with mental health professionals, inform them about your symptoms. If you feel out of control or that you might be a threat to yourself or to others, then go to the emergency room for immediate assistance. At the hospital, you can be evaluated and promptly given treatment.
The voices and paranoia are obviously not within your control. They are causing you a great deal of distress. Without treatment, they will likely become worse. I hope that you will seek treatment immediately. Please take care.
