My atheism.

Well, I have another appointment soon.

Once you're cured, tell 'em you've been saved so hard all your friends here need saving too, and God has called you to do it Wink

I am assuming that you have tried to explain your views, yes? And they don't "get" it.

I assume this because I have seen how eloquent and articulate you can be.

So actually, it is they who are confused, not you.

I would be tempted to learn what I can about the therapist's technique and start applying it to your parents... subtly asking them the same questions that you are being asked.

I would be treating it as a learning opportunity.


I had the same experience (although I think I was around 18 years old).

Had it been better understood back then, I probably would have been diagnosed as being somewhere on the Autistic Spectrum... or at least an extreme introvert.

I recall being asked about my "life position" with this diagram:

I'm ok / ..........¦............I'm ok /
You're ok.........¦........You're not ok
......................¦
-------------------¦---------------------------
......................¦
I'm not ok /......¦.........I'm not ok /
You're ok.........¦......You're not ok


I reckon you could correctly place a few TTA members correctly on this diagram.

Incidentally, I went for a fifth option which the shrink hadn't thought of; it made her laugh. Then she told my parents not to worry about me.

When I was in psych, briefly, I crossed them all out.
I wrote in ; "I'm OK, you're not so hot".
They came in and said, "OK, funny guy, time to go home". Tongue

I like that.

I drew this for my protagonist (who was kinda hot, as I recall):

I'm ok / ..........¦....I am / You are
You're ok.........¦..../
......................¦. /
------------------L ---------------------
......................¦
I'm not ok /......¦.........I'm not ok /
You're ok.........¦......You're not ok

A-squared,
When is your next appointment? Keep us posted, dude.

I wouldn't recommend that if you don't want to end up finger painting at your local psychiatric hospital.

It's my profession but they are not generally fun places. They can be very helpful if you find a good one though.

Yeah but you have those and you don't need a psychiatrist.

Or do you??? Sadcryface
