  • More About Me
    I have recently left the church for the millionth time...I've been unsure about Christianity for years and kept giving it more chances because I wanted it to be true. Finally I realized, if I can't make up my mind after 7 years of going back and forth from the church, then this path is obviously not for me. I came here for some support and to share my story with some folks in the same boat as me.

  1. Ugh...trying a new medication to help with anxiety and depression..i hate it. Ive only taken it a few days and its made the anxiety worse and i feel like a zombie. Like i havent slept in days even tho its been causing me to oversleep. I normally do not lean towards medication but i thought i would give it another chance to see if it would ease my anxiety at least a little. Guess not

      FD, My Doc scripted a pill that normally is a 'crazy fixer'. Do not need it for its normal use. Off label, it helps treat severe diabetic neuropathy of which hurts my hands terribly.

      Took two weeks before that chemistry did its promised effects.

       

      Point is, please take meds if you can stand these shitty side effects until it kicks in.

       

      Hang on and know many of we are fellow travelers in chemistry with you.

      Valium is the only thing that worked for me. Customer could be causing me out to my face and I wouldn't care.

  2. Daffodil summed up pretty much what I was going to say. What's most important is you are living your life the way that you want, that makes you happy. Your mom might not understand but I'm glad your father is supportive even though he disagrees with the whole thing. I'd say just keep some distance from your mom, and only bring up the gay topic if she brings it up first. I would just say something like "Look I am your daughter, and I know you love me. And as your daughter I will be honest with you about who I am." Be firm, get her to realize that you are an adult, and even though she may disagree with your life choices, it is your life and you are in control of how you live it.
  3. love it when i make plans with someone and then last minute they cancel, after i already have a ride arranged and everything. ugh i guess a glass of wine is my company for tonight. oh well.

  4. ok ok ok and where's this proof of there being no contradiction of gods word? he has no proof so he's just spewing bullshit
  5. the amount of real friends i have i can count on one hand. the amount of ppl who claim to be my friends but aren't genuine...i can count on more than my own 2 hands. oh well. less drama i guess

      Yep. Lots of people I know, but most are still peripheral even after years. Even a couple of them that had come into the inner circle showed they had ulterior motives (money) and are gone now.

      Remember that quality is better than quantity.

  6. while everyone else is fucked and burns for all eternity because they didn't understand.
  7. If non believers can't understand the bible..then how did christians understand it before they converted? If it was true that non believers can't understand the bible, then it's implying that you must have blind faith in a book you haven't read before it can make any sense. WHAAAAAT
  8. I bet the guys who prayed for you were like "Since we prayed for him he was able to find the right medicine to heal himself! praise god! good thing we did that!" it's weird how christians convince themselves of stuff happening that is "miraculous" and "not coincidental", when the reality is you would have gotten the pain medication for your condition anyway...even if they had not prayed. And I'm sorry but when you find someone with a medical condition at walmart, you ask if you can help them...like ACTUALLY help them...not pray over them when they need medical attention. I ran across an old lady at safeway who fell in her walker, and me and her husband helped her up and she was in a lot of pain...we asked if she needed an ambulance and turns out she did...after we sat her down she was in too much pain to walk again. We called an ambulance right away and got her the help she needed immediately.
  9. if you change your beliefs, it does kind of alter how your perception of reality is...so who you are is not who you were before. That does not mean it's a bad thing though. When believers say that someone has changed due to rejecting Christianity, they mean it in a bad way..like it's a bad thing that they chose to believe differently. The reality is: people change constantly. It's a part of life. Look at the seasons change, look at the night sky turning to day, etc. The whole world is full of constant change. People change. Who you are may have been altered a bit due to how you see things now, and there's nothing wrong with that.
  10. Dear God, hope you get the letter and I pray you can make it better down here I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer But all the people that you made in your image See them starving on their feet 'Cause they don't get enough to eat from God I can't believe in you Dear God, sorry to disturb you but I feel that I should be heard loud and clear We all need a big reduction in amount of tears And all the people that you made in your image See them fighting in the street 'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God I can't believe in you Did you make disease and the diamond blue? Did you make mankind after we made you? And the Devil too! Dear God don't know if you noticed but Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look And all the people that you made in your image Still believing that junk is true Well I know it ain't, and so do you Dear God I can't believe in I don't believe I won't believe in heaven or hell No saints, no sinners, no devil as well No pearly gates, no thorny crown You're always letting us humans down The wars you bring, the babes you drown Those lost at sea and never found And it's the same the whole world 'round The hurt I see helps to compound The Father, Son and Holy Ghost Is just somebody's unholy hoax And if you're up there you'll perceive That my heart's here upon my sleeve If there's one thing I don't believe in It's you Dear God

  12. You would think that if the Bible really was the inspired word of God, a gift to all humanity to go to heaven with God and avoid going to hell...you would think his holy book would be more clear about things like this. You would think God would want you to understand the oh-so-holy book so you would repent and believe. You would think his book of holiness would not cause thousands of denominations of the same belief to produce.
