Folks, this conversation is wandering a bit far afield. The best way to rile up your symptoms is to play with them in the ways being encouraged here. Worse, there’s some bad advice that will likely trigger vulnerable members. Shutting this thread down for that reason.

Please note that while we encourage open discussions we do not support posts that can trigger or otherwise cause another member to become more delusional. Please do not post or respond in a way that would further delusional thinking. If a member is looking for support on how to cope with a symptom then giving ideas of reference that would play into or further that delusion is not supported. Such posts will be deleted.
While some people respond to doctors and medications and choose that route, others have been healed by a variety of spiritual/religious/shamanistic type practice. those practices often include things mentioned in that topic and others…things that are continually referred to here as ‘delusional thinking’ ‘ideas of reference’ etc.
Seems by censoring topics and posts like this it is cutting off an avenue of healing that is utilized, and utilized successfully by some percentage of people with mental health diagnoses.
I know I am not the only one, there are others, and links have been posted from time to time about people who were healed by shaman or spiritual practices.
So what about the people for whom doctors and medications don’t work? they exist. they are a part of this.
There are people who would view the mind set that there can only be doctors and meds and anything else is delusional as a delusion since the belief leaves no room for alternative treatments.
On the flip side I have had people here and on other groups in the past tell me to take meds, go see a doctor, etc. I don’t let it bother me. I know what works for me me tried and proven. In the same way if a person isn’t into the spiritual/religious/shaman stuff, why do they let it bother them so much?
Is there not room for more than one avenue of healing ?
