I have rare panic attacks, but I managed to maintain my normal condition by taking care of myself... No junk food, enough sleep and some natural oils is a good start of improving your mental health :roll:

I think reading makes you more intelligent and might suffer from a mental illness like schizophrenia or Bi polar

Post Re: Do you have a mental Illness
It is certainly true that one can gain knowledge by reading,Its fundamental :P. I think there’s a correlation between the two but it does depend on what is read doesn’t it?.

As to mental illness, I can only write, that there is a benefit to honest conversation with a qualified professional. I personally have had anxiety and depressive disorder for the majority of my life. For me pattern recognition was key. Once I realized that there was a definitive pattern of highs and lows I was able to deal mostly on my own, But did help to also talk to a doctor, I take a low dose of serotonin uptake inhibitors. For me it helps. But that’s just me. The complex vicissitudes of life...go figure! :x .



The following user would like to thank Taylor for this post:

In response to your question, I quote the late Waylon Jennings: "I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane." :x :P :wink:

Post Re: Do you have a mental Illness
I came back to this because it’s just nothing. @ Cattleman, I know you have a good head on your shoulders but you added nothing to this thread. Give us something from your mind. I love Waylon Jennings but you’ve gone nowhere.

Post Re: Do you have a mental Illness
Taylor, I owe you and all the others an apology. I would never make fun of mental illness or someone who is mentally ill. One of my daughters best friends was diagnosed in her teens as bipolar. It plagued her all her short life - she committed suicide in her early thirties.

I am asking Chris to remove my earlier post.

Post Re: Do you have a mental Illness
I may have been off the mark, but what I read in that quote, in the context of the whole song was a call to do your own thing in your own way, even if it is "crazy", and it just may keep you from going insane.

I got no hint of Cattleman making lite of mental illness and I'm very sensitive to it having members of my family and my wife's family with serious mental problems.

Post Re: Do you have a mental Illness
@ Cattleman: No need to apologize man, no offense was taken. Do not consider you’re post necessary to take down. I just thought your contribution was empty that’s all.

Your follow-up about your daughters friend committing suicide..well, That was something from the heart. Bless you man. It’s honest and important.

Thank you.

@ LevV: I did not get any hints of levity neither.

Thanks to you as well. I am not ashamed of the subject of mental health. We are witnessing he results of undiagnosed mental health issues every day. Talking, (or in this case, writing about it) only serves to better life.
