Re: Haven't posted in a while, but if theirs anyone who feels E.C. is really crippling them, well, i felt that way once, and I'm here to tell ya' its gonna be fine whether your cured or not.
All I'm saying is about a year ago i would spend an hour or two a day on this forum trying methods people said worked, well they didn't, some were painful and made my condition worse, but i was desperate to try anything that would cure e.c. And out of all those methods people said worked for them, only one person left and didn't come back, everyone else came back in a week saying their condition returned. That seems to be a symptom of this site, people think e.c. is cured, but really its just going through its cycles.
I don't have a problem if someone were to use a method for a month+ without fail, and post that, but i know from experience that false hope with e.c. is terrible to experience over and over again. Rather engaging in support of each other, almost like group therapy, is quite healing in my opinion. If people are noticing results with something thats fine, but posting it up on here before its even proven permenant gets people all syked up until they try it themselves and then hit bottom all over agains. Its a free forum, people can say what they like, I'm just proposing a different approach because I've been through it, still have it, and have overcome it, to me, thats the most important thing.
If your faith helps you through life, then all the power to you, it never really helped me. I have been praying every night since i was five years old, up until this year when i lost my faith, which has been slipping for the past couple years now. At this point i have no doubt in my mind there is no god, just as you probobly have no doubt there is?
But being a christian was literally always a handi-capped for me. I always wondered things like, o.k. I'm doing this drug right now, will i go to hell for it? I have a family member who is homosexual, and i read about how sodomites are going to burn in hell for eternity. Thats nonsense to me. The bible, in my eyes(and this is very much un-conventional thinking) a form of control, created by men of power centuries ago. Create a infinite burning hell for sinners, and people will not sin.
Say not to have pre-marital sex and you have population control. Say Eve ate the apple and you have predjudice towards women making them inferior. Religions of all types have cause havok, pain, murder and chaos upon the world. Its almost as if thats what they were ment to do. And then you have to take into consideration how much money religious speakers make. To me the vatican is just another corporation, and a huge one considering they don't even have to pay taxes. I don't want to turn this into a religious debate though, that can be argued somewhere else.
