HyperInHell Posted August 24, 2005 Share Posted August 24, 2005 Hello to everybody. Know what? All those other mental health message boards on the internet are full of people who are 30+ and no have idea what it's like to be alive during the millennium. I never even bothered to register at them, because it always felt like the only thing I had in common with those people was that we are all going through what is now considered mental illness. It is nice to have found this place. There was a time when I turned mental illness into some sort of countercultural trend. Crazy revolution! I even wrote a piece called "The Insanity Culture's Manifesto." There was also a time when I rejected the notion of mental illness entirely, and claimed that the people who were referred to as crazy were actually the people who were the true sane ones. I even went as far as saying that crazy wass the next step of evolution, and that in order to go beyond the human state you would need to become what society refers to as insane. Now? I just want to stop this war in my head. While I have been diagnosed with enough labels to start their own country, my main diagnosis is schizoaffective. I personally think labels are ridiculous though. How are such simple terms supposed to define such complex thoughts and extreme ways of viewing the world? I am a fringe writer, experimental musician, and vagabond. I am here to get advice on medication, which I have finally agreed to take (mainly just to make things easier for myself) after years of preaching about it being used to brainwash the mentally radical. I am also here to gain and provide support. Nice to meet you guys! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
