Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hi Isap The JWs are close to being a sect. They brainwash people. I suppose that could have happened to you. Tbh I don't look at many posts. Yours, andthistoo and Ems if she posts. Also Emolja lately as we've had a wee discussion on mindfulness. My success with mindfulness so far is very limited. I ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Hi Em I'm glad your downs aren't. as often. Good for you with your voluntary work and selling your stuff. I had about ten good weeks. It's up and down again now. I'm working on mindfulness with a teeny bit of success. Perhaps the forum doesn't suit your needs now. I'm glad to hear you're coping thou...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hi Isap

The JW believe in this cosmic battle between good and evil. I think it's called dualism. All other Christians disown this belief.

It's awful that your only respite comes from a meeting with this lot.

Take care
I'm sending prayers

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Emloja I really understand about not being able to live in the present. I've had a few good days but yesterday mid morning I found myself feeling anxious again. So I'm back to worry worry. Although I do my best with mindfulness as soon as I feel anxious I find the whole thing really hard. Last we...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hi Isap It's strange about your cellmate. For good or bad he's helping you but his reasons aren't important. It's helping you and that's what matters here. Don't you think the JWs would suffer even more (unless their belief sustained them) . They would have to own up to having a phone. That's if the...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Emolja I did a mindfulness course a few years ago but didn't stick with it.. It seemed a waste of time. I did the course again in January and it's only since then that I have been meditating. It's helped me a little but given it's early days in meditation /mindfulness I don't mind that although w...

Re: Where did it all go wrong?

Hi lee In mental health loved ones will do all they can to help. That isn't wrong on your part. It's because they care and that is lovely. You make illogical decisions because you have mental illness just as you would limp if you had a damaged leg. That sounds simplistic but lack of logic is a big p...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Emloja I think the sense of failure acts on a number of levels. At one level I know that even when II'm ill I have the same value as anyone else. Yet at another level it's still the failure story. Something helped my attitude a little about a week ago. PePeople ssay. 'You can't help how you feel'...
