That i should see a pastor for my mental illness. Cuz they think the devil cursed me or i need to be prayed over for it so their god can rid me of this mental illness. Now i am agnostic and i don’t disprove anyones god/goddess doesn’t exist, cuz it not my place to. That and i don’t see the point in why peoe fight over whos god it real or fake. I feel as if why not stop fighting and form learn your friends beliefs.
But my Christian friends don’t like my ways of thinking. And say i need to see a priest or pastor. When one churchs make me feel uncomfortable. (I always get an unwelcoming presence even when i am alone in one. As in the church doesnt want me already.)
And this is a mental illness it simply can’t gone like that. I mean maybe if i had faith, but i don’t. As well as i don’t know what god i even choose to worshipers.
Pules most of my Christian friends (i don’t hate any Christians i like most of mine, but some don’t like that i am trans or have a mental illness. And some of my friends don’t like that i express it through my art as well.) When i do that so i don’t self harm.
Anyway i kinda just wanted to ramble on this topic cuz it keeps happening.
And to see if anyone else has this issue as well.
Anyway i got to go pick up my meds. Talk to you later.
Some people believe that stuff because they just can’t understand nature. No one cursed you. It’s just luck of the draw. Don’t bother wirh any religious therapist, you need a science based care team. You said you’re agnostic, so just take what they say with a grain of salt. Don’t start believing that cursed stuff, that way madness lies.
It’s best to stay away from those kinds of influences. You have a mental illness. It’s very serious. Trust me and the dozens of other people on here who have prayed for a cure for years. The medicine is the closest thing we have. You can tell your friends that God guided doctors to create medicines that fix us if that gets them off your back. I don’t speak to my religious friends anymore.
My mother in law think I hear and see demons. She told me I need to get prayed over. If she doesnt hear from me or my partner that I am experiencing symptoms then she automatically assumes that she prayed over me and it worked but it’s just because I dont want her telling me I’m possessed .
Religion never helped me, and I believe some of my voices are angels.
Medication and therapy has helped me more than anything else
They just don’t understand, and that could be dangerous for you.
I complelely fell ya there. My dad does the same thing and completely dosent think i have schizoafftive disorder.
I do see a non religious therapist.
I live in the bible belt.
Why get so upset over something? You could have just left the post and said nothing. You have that ability.
I went through exorcisms. I threw up “demons”. I had to meet these “exorcists” at their house for sessions. My 14 year old daughter stayed home of course by herself. These people meant well.
They even told me that “the Holy Spirit” told them I should go off my medicine. I never missed work so I would go to work withdrawing feeling like I had the flu and sweating. Don’t do that.
Thank you for sharing. My friend keeps pressuring me to do this. And says it will heal me when there are something that we are ment to have i guess. I hope you have recovered form those excorites
There’s no way you have to do it.
This guy used to pressure me into taking some odd herbs to get rid of spiritual parasites in me lol. I was like no no nono NO. Now I just ignore him because he wouldn’t respect my boundaries
He has very unusual beliefs which is fine but not to push them on me that is not on
No one should force someone to do something.
