Im involved professionally with mental health
My professional identity is a vast, vast, vast distance from the mainstream!!!!!
I see a number of posts on AC that indicate the presence of madness !
I am concerned about this and believe we can improve our assistance to these people !
There is very clear suicidality regularly being expressed
There is also delusions being lived through big time!!!!
Im going to try to define insanity…omg
Both point 1 &2 &3 are simultaneous
1) You see the world as your way and act towards it accordingly. Yet a deeper/different layer of your mind disagrees with your assessment and accordingly there is an inner conflict regarding the nature of reality that is in constant and irresolvable conflict. Ie “I’m waiting for and living as though the 5d will arrive now but Im very distressed that nobody cares nor even believes me. They just won’t accept the truth so I feel lonely sad and uncertain. My friends don’t like me anymore”
2) The result of internalising anxiety and emotional exhaustion to the point where there isn’t any more thinking space and so the only events experienced are inside a closed intellectual loop that other people can rarely join into.
3) This is typically associated with a discomforted state of mind/body. You are not having fun!!
Put differently……. you say XYZ is happening but you are unable to present any event that confirms your thinking even for your self and you are constantly dismayed by other people s inability to see the things you do . other people cannot seem to experience the facts you perceive and are often inexplicabley concerned or critical or even more commonly they avoid you.
obviously we’re all mad according to the “mainstream” of thinking but there is a big difference between “odd” and mad….insanity isn’t amusing to experience
So what’s our opportunity????
Doesn’t seem to work well to tell people they’re crazy. Doesn’t work well to agree theyre sane and all others are the problem( lie)
Medication is as ineffective. a band aide at best ( band aides can save lives in the short term) and how would you do it any way ( medication is in my opinion massively problematic!!)
Thinking badly of and or ignoring isn’t helpful
Presenting at a psychiatrist mental health agency with AC ideas is bound to be problematic J I personally would not do that since they would surely consider me mad
Maybe a special interest group or list of professionals that can sit with AC version of reality
Any ideas about how to better respond to the presence of mental dis-ease in our beloved community of souls?????
