  1. Fresh face

    Hi I'm SkilletFan. It's a pleasure to meet you!
  2. I don't know how to feel about mental illness

    These people are the exception... People who give mental illness a bad name. When in reality, you often can't even tell a person has mental illness until you get to know them deeply. We don't all believe in 4 corners stuff. But we do have struggles. I don't blame you for not knowing what you think of mental illness either. A lot of people who don't have it, don't know what to think.
  3. Is it just me .... the legacy continues ...

    The good news is I brought donuts. The bad news is, I took last in all the commotion.
  4. This post may not be well received because it speaks on some theory, but... I was stubborn. I wanted to weigh the Bible with man's wisdom. And it caused a thorn in my flesh. My definition of "thorn in my flesh" is causing some sort of demonic oppression, letting demons into your life. Anyway, I accepted the Bible's wisdom instead of man's wisdom, and I will say, for what it's worth, my anxiety has been 15% of what it was, these past 4-5 days. Anyway, my point? I think you owe it to yourself to follow the Bible and develop a Biblical understanding. It could just be that I asked myself too many Philosophical questions that made me nervous, but I don't think so.
  5. My mental illness perspective

    You shouldn't assume every system to be completely corrupt. Like, what if you ever develop mental illness and need medicine, jeff? But I digress.
  6. My mental illness perspective

    One of the many problems is, people assume all psychiatrists and psychologists to be some kind of tricky atheist. There are Christians in this field as well. Good ones.
  7. There has been a lot of questions about mental illness lately, and I thought I would give a perspective from someone who has it, me. I think I've been labeled as having "Schizophrenic like disorder", though it could be something else - so many labels have been tossed around at what I have, it's hard to tell. Anyway, it causes me to have a learning disorder. This gets complicated because I used to be a genius. What this means today is that I do some things really well, some things not so much. I take medicine that helps my anxiety somehow. But I still experience a fraction of that anxiety. I would actually discourage people from saying "Don't listen to doctors on this subject", because these psychiatrists and psychologists have been to college a lot of years and understand the brain better than us. I think mental illness isn't directly demon influenced, but demons can still play a small factor I think. The fact is, when you get diagnosed as mentally ill, you should take any medicine prescribed, but you also have to make yourself right with God. I believe that will help heal and soothe you. I'll give you an example of how demons can play a factor. When I was diagnosed mentally ill, I was drinking alcohol and large levels of caffeine together. I believe demons influenced me to do that. But still, I don't believe mental illness is a matter of "casting demons out of a person". I also think it's dangerous to not be a psychiatrist yet ask people to quit their medicine. I hope I have given a normal understanding of mental illness from my perspective, and that this thread doesn't violate Terms of Service.
