I’m a part time atheist but I would encourage anyone experiencing mental health difficulties or not to explore their spirituality. I have found great meaning in my struggles through a spiritual framework. There are many paths to way-makers and miracle workers. If you find peace elsewhere embrace it.

For me there has been a great deal of symbolism in my various states of wellness.

We are all worthy of spiritual respect regardless of our circumstances or state of mind. The next time you encounter the hopeless, homeless or helpless keep in mind that Christ would be classified as crazy.

  5. I was screaming about “21 feet” so they weren’t justified in shooting anything, but they were already 10 feet away. They finally got my dog away from me and I turned around and stripped naked without prompting. “On the floor.” And they pinned me to the floor with their Plexiglas shields and handcuffed me. The paramedics gave me a needle in the ass and I was placed on the gurney I had kicked over when they parked it at my front door. 1 Reply

  8. With fewer options when it comes to interpersonal relationships the individual in recovery is prone to prodding the past in an attempt to reclaim valued social roles.  It is understandable that individuals with mental illness and or addictions attempt to return to some state of Eden; a time of better health or perceived ‘normalcy’.
