You’re on a bit of a roller coaster right now. Remind yourself of that, be gentle to yourself.


The word is cold and harsh but you can find goodness if you look, there are many good people in this world.

I agree with @Rhubot , you’re roller coastering at the moment. Just be aware of it at least, and you will hopefully be fine.

I have no cravings to drink thanks to naltrexone but still my number 1 coping mechanism is gone making it tough for me.

Good riddance to booze.

I look pale and devoid emotion in the face


Piles of research show that sz pts tend to get “better” when they…

  1. Get a copy of this book and read it and have their families read it, as well.
  2. Get properly diagnosed by a board-certified psychopharmacologist who specializes in the psychotic disorders. One can find them at… and
  3. Work with that “psychiatrist” (or “p-doc”) to develop a medication formula that stabilizes their symptoms sufficiently so that they can tackle the psychotherapy that will disentangle their thinking.
  4. The best of the psychotherapies for that currently include…
    DBT –
    MBSR –
    MBCT -
    ACT –
    10 StEP –
  5. the even newer somatic psychotherapies like…
    MBBT –
    SEPT –
    SMPT –
  6. or standard CBTs, like…
    REBT –
    Schematherapy –
    Learned Optimism –
    Standard CBT –
  7. If you/she/he needs a professional intervention to get through treatment resistance, tell me where you live, and I will get back to you with leads to those services.
  8. Look into the RAISE Project at

Welcome back, notmoses!

I agree with OP. The world is cold and harsh. At best, parental love is the only source of love. Well, I have to agree with Malvok that there are good people like our parents out there, just that we have not find them and discover what are their real persons.

The World is cold and harsh and nothing but pure evil exists only a few good people out there and that’s it just my personal opinion so take it as it is

If you look for the good you will find it, if you look for the bad you will find it. Change your thoughts and it will change your mind. There is good out there, look for it.


Life is full of serial disappointments. Everything is overhyped. Lower your expectations, enjoy the basics and it is better.

There is great good and great evil out in the world. On the evil side, there has been at least six times in the twentieth century that over a million people have been massacred. The Turks killed a million Armenians, the Japanese killed millions in their rampage through the orient, Pol Pot killed a million Cambodians, the Chinese killed millions in their “cultural revolution”, the Nazies killed millions, and Joseph Stalin killed millions. On the good side, people have labored their lives away in some lonely lab producing the vaccines for the diseases that have been the great killers of humanity - the bubonic plague, measles, small pox, and so on. The only reward the got for it was some modest recognition. Football players and basketball players get far more acclaim.

When we watch the news it’s mostly all the bad stuff happening. Good things don’t really get reported much. There is good in the world. You just have to “know” it’s out there. I’m sorry you are down @turningthepage

Like DarkSith says. “Know someone cares.”


@turningthepage I write when life is gloom. Hence all my shared dark poetry. It cheers me up to do something productive with gloom. I suggest you write some raps.

that’s because it is…
but it does not mean ’ you ’ have to follow the ’ sheep ’ :sheep: into the abyss. :dizzy_face:
take care :alien:
