Title: Elemental Rudeness
Post by: Inge on April 27, 2014, 07:18:27 AM
I apologize for posting elsewhere without first introducing myself.

My name is Inge.

I am currently struggling with narcoleptic symptoms that tend to wax and wane accordingly to my husband's bipolar shifts. I had developed a worsening sense of pain about three to four years ago. My attending PA started me out with Nuvigil and Cymbalta, both are remarkable products but after about a year neither seemed adequately effective enough for me to function. I had been taught as a child to not just "take a pill" and decided to stop the Cymbalta, keeping the Nuvigil for rare, occasions use. After another year of mental fog, wretched,  achey pain and a ridiculously inconvenient drowsiness, I discussed my issues with my boss, an Arabic doctor. He suggested I go to a psychiatric physician with ADD. I did not resent the label nor did I feel necessarily diagnosed correctly, I, instead, felt desperate to overcome the mental fog and pain that had become much more chronic. I currently take a low dose Adderall, which, surprisingly to me, has made a significant difference in the quality of my work day. I don't take it on the weekends and I appreciate not having to "come off of it", as when I could not afford the Cymbalta and choose to discontinue it, I had very complicated symptoms that only magnified my already distracted state at work.

I had not ever considered taking prescription medications before because of the expense and because anything taken long term represents a type of dependency that I was taught would discredit not only my presence but also my conversation. I was taught much differently than I've come to believe, now, however.  High levels of stress and trauma can and will induce the very symptoms I now struggle with and I no longer doubt the validity of such consequences.

It is my hope to bring our medical office forth in the way that we can correctly identify and adequately treat our patients. It is also my hope that my children will mature into adulthood understanding success to be as their own, accordingly.

As for my magical path, I'm a Gypsy.

I believe many things that are not common. I believe some illnesses, some conditions carry a an odor and that when people talk not only their medical conditions are potentially revealed but so is their method if treatment. It may not always be by odor. Sometimes the levels of intellect, the mental planes, etc are represented from within the depths, facets, of conversation. This is not ignorant superstition. It's true, accordingly to my experience.

However I may come across, I hope to ensure the board of an important point of my presence. I'm not here thinking I know so much, rather, I am here to learn.

♡ Much Appreciated  ♡

Inge

You weren't being rude, you just didn't know the ropes.  No worries.

Welcome to TCC, Inge.  You have filled us in quite fully on your medical situations and beliefs. What about spiritual?  Do you follow a particular path or religion?  This site is primarily for the sharing of and learning of different paths and religious followings.  Your input in those areas would be a welcome contribution.  Enjoy your journey.

Welcome Inge. I'm most interested to understand what spiritual path you follow.
Title: Re: Elemental Rudeness

Well, accordingly, I am a Spiritualist.

The discipline that has ruled my life is IFB Christian.

However, obviously,  we are bound from within many books.

From genetic sequencing to Luciferian synchronicity, our disciplined paths may not reveal our truest depths and sometimes detrimental consequential ignorances bind us more than any oppositional adversary.

Is that Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Christian?  Somehow I think not but just asking...

Why do you think not?

There just seems to be some dissonance between Christian Fundamentalism and the beliefs and practices you describe.  But you wouldn't be the first Christopagan on the site or Christian mystic, and it could prove very interesting. Heck, we can always use fresh perspectives.

So, fill us in if you like, your choice. Are you a fundamentalist Baptist who likes to veer into the pagan world?  Or other? Or did I get it wrong?

I married into the IFB. It has been my discipline for over 15 years. Rather, very well, Christian mysticism wasn't something I veered into. I was born into and raised very close with schizophrenia. While I, personally, am not schizophrenic, being subjected to such at the levels I have has given me an entirely different perspective than what is acceptable. I'm very tired. The lack of understanding that encompassed by has forced me to realize I may not ever be welcome within any church fellowship. However, in the last several years, I've learned to handle not having the support system such could have represented in my family's life.  ♡  I'm not a mystic on purpose. In and by fact, I wouldn't boast to be a mystic at all. I often say I'm just very sensitive and have married superstition.

I am drawn to this site because it seems others here may share an understanding that,  elsewhere, is yet unfounded by me. Even from within the psych forums, there does not seem to be the same level of focus.

Are you a retired majishun? Something about the way you write seems to suggest such.

Conspiracy theory #2014 as seen through the eyes of paranoia. No offense Inge, but these
type of sites poison the mind. They offer only suggestions of impending doom and keep
the good in this life from taking root in the soul.

You do seek to balance the light, am I right? Or wrong?

Um. Well. I don't necessarily agree that such sites represent conspiracy theories, however, I appreciate the sharing of minds and I understand that some readers do perceive any thing that questions the current powers that be as condemnation.

If someone is not right, does that necessarily mean they are wrong? Not to me.

Am I balancing the light to illuminate darkness? I don't know how to answer questions most of the time because the individual capacity to understand sometimes varies so vastly that everything risks being misconstrued.

I cannot deny, even now, the previlant importance of some of my darkest indwelling phantoms. Some things go necessarily without being revealed or understood. As I come across sites and posts from within sites that I disagree more than agree with, I kinda just "take it on the chin", as, if I were to interfere and inject my personal perceiption I risk coming across as a know-it-all meddler and that would possibly put more posters off from replying productively than if I just sit quietly and read over the self-induced idiocy painfully displayed.

AND I pop a phenegrin to ease the persistent nausea I seemingly get from subjecting myself to certain types of personalities.

*shaking my father's knotted and crooked walking cane at the moss bed*

Did you mean seven roses? Seven circles.... I read. It's the seven roses that I struggled with. Arabic. I'm not finding it to be within my langual abilities. I'm certain I don't have the throat structure to perform such distortedly harsh noise.

Seven Circles! Read about the nine circles from Dante's Inferno, you'll get the idea.
 
That site you gave a link to, mentioned metamorphic reptilian invaders, and although I suppose this is not beyond the ultimate reams of possibility in quantum theoretical parallel universes, it certainly gives rise to the validity of nothing other than paranoiac musings of extreme conspiracy theorists.
 
I am a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself, but my limitations don't go beyond government, corporate and finance houses etc.
 
Thusly I reiterate my reluctance to begin preparing the tin-foil hat for use.

Um.  Well. I don't know enough about genetic sequencing and the coding of DNA to argue any kind of validity in the hysterical Rantings about reptilian factorization. However, I do refrain from posting anything potentially slanderous toward anyone who would.

Do you agree with this site? http://www.thecircleofthesacredwell.org/more_info/what_is_wicca.htm

Or, rather, this connects a few of the dots I had mentioned earlier: http://www.gatesofhorn.com/content/wiccan-kabbalah-connection

 ďIt isnít what folks donít know thatís the troubleÖitís what they do know that ainít so.Ē

And, yet, again... another conspiracy theory, dear? http://www.gatesofhorn.com/blog/intellectual_honesty_in_america_is_a_punishable_offense

I just don't know. Sometimes it does seem so.
