  1. Thanks for friending me, HZ.

  2. We did talk about that, D. Keep brainstorming. Keep at it -- whatever works (even the littlest things that work).

  3. Eh, not so much, mainly because I can't make myself concentrate long enough to do anything creative, literary or artistic. Very long standing problem, we might have talked about that. I do brainstorm a lot though.

  4. Thanks for your kind words to me and for all of your kindnesses on this board, Phanta.

  5. I admire you so much, Pitchu, and thank you for your support.

  6. I'm flattered to be your friend, Mr. D.

    For always!

  7. Thank you so much for your caring responses! I wished I'd had someone like you as a mother, when I was a child!

  8. Couldn't agree more... Jesus, Paul, and the boys being among those "Others." I hope you've read the guidelines for this forum, Plastic, since there's an undertone in your post which teases the edge of what's not permitted in "Testimonies."
  9. Ruby, the confluence of emotions you so eloquently present here reminds me of something which is related, though it isn't religious at all. Maybe outlining it here will shed a different sort of light on what you're feeling. Nineteen years ago, when my husband and I adopted a sister and brother, aged 7 and 6, from the foster system, they'd been in foster care for four years and had been in a minimum of eight placements. They'd been through terrible ordeals, but the one, main thing that haunted them and colored their perception of everything was that their birth parents had repeatedly prom
  10. Welcome to the forums, vb. Lots of members here are struggling with "unequally yoked" issues, and I'm sure you'll run into discussions on this topic. As for the sense of freedom you feel, it's a popular word folks use to describe their deconversion experience. Feeling free can garner a lot of resentment from those who've chosen bondage.
  11. This has been my experience with SSRI. Last night sitting at the computer I was getting quite chilled (we keep the house at 63), but I couldn't muster enough caring to get up and put my sweatshirt on. But without the meds I feel like the angriest beast on the planet. I've been grocery shopping after having forgotten to take my pill. When this happens, I feel like killing the little old lady taking too long to decide which can of beans is the better buy. When I'm on the med I don't care if she examines each bean in the can to be sure it's good. Ah, Chef, your brown pill, right?
  12. Welcome, Gardener, and sorry about that obnoxious post from a loving xian. I wonder if there was a trigger for the initial recurrence of that sense of doom. You say it seems to come when you're enjoying yourself. What is it about your personal joy that does this, I wonder. The xians will proclaim their joy in jesus loudly and in song... the xian doth protest too much, methinks... yet you somehow feel endangered just taking in a good moment of your own life. That's very sad. I wish I were trained in these matters, and better able to help, but I hope you'll keep investigating the spe
  13. Welcome to the forums, deb. You've certainly dealt with more than your share of vicissitudes. I hope you'll find this site an antidote to confusion. You'll surely find many here whose lives have also been deeply negatively affected by xianity and who are gaining back their authentic selves. I wish the same for you.
