This is what the preacher's wife told me. No one who knew him as ever suggested otherwise.

By the way, he insisted that blacks are not human and that marrying a black person is bestiality. He based this on the Bible verse about God creating man "in his own image."

You have every right to be angry at him. I wish you could have confronted him before he died. Is there anyone professionally you could talk to, who would help you through these massive feelings? You cannot keep this stuff inside you. I would suggest you do that right away.

I had well over a decade of psychotherapy, benefited from it in no way whatsoever, and am shocked at the bizarre mistakes which therapists make. There. I said it.

Oh I think I remember you said all the therapists were also of some religious order though, right?

Sorry if I am forgetting or confusing you with someone else.

What mistakes? You can say it.

You're mistaking me with someone else. Yeah, I requested a psychological evaluation for my father when he was in a rest home. The verdict was that there was nothing wrong with him. BS! He was a total nut case. When I was a teenager, I was diagnosed as schizophrenic and tricked into taking a neuroleptic, which really messed me up. Guess what? I had no symptoms. I was diagnosed as schizophrenic, but without any symptoms. I was not psychotic at all. That's what I'm talking about. Now someone on this site will call me a liar. Watch me not care.

Earthcircle-you have been given a raw deal on so many accounts. I hope that you can look back on it now and know that you were clearly victimized by so many and that you were not at fault. A child is at the wims of it's parents and that is the scariest thing if your parents are abusive. Psychology is at best a soft science and you were thrown to the wolves with those people too. There are so many who have been misdiagnosed by the system, you are not alone there. The drugs they dole out are so powerful and they have done zero studies about long term effects. I just watched something about that very subject and it's really frightening what they are doing to children these days with the ADD diagnosis all over the place. You seem to have seen through the layers of BS and that is what it takes to make it through this horrible maze we are put in call Life. But wait it's wonderful too...it can be...moments can be perfect. That's all we really have is those times. I hope you find some of those times soon.

Always had 20/20 vision until the last year or two. Grey nose hairs next I suspect.

Earthcricle, I know from my experience how wrong doctors and physios can be. I believe what you say.

I fantasize about the rest of the town melting away around me and the sound of the birds coming through, birds and wind, that's it.

These are the creepy religious people that give all religion a bad name. I consider myself spiritual, not religious. I accept all you athiests if you can accept me

My daughter was diagnosed with ADD and took medicine for awhile. I hated to do it, but she couldn't make friends (they couldn't keep up with her.) It was a bust, she just is who she is. Now this year my son's teacher tried to get me to give it to him because he didn't pay attention in class... but get this, he was getting good grades I'm like "what's the damn problem then?" I told her no. My Dr. agreed. These teachers are pushing for it harder than the Dr.s and it's pathetic!

Molly, I hate people too. I have been hurt and misled so many times by this age (42) that it's a wonder that I trust anyone at all. I am lucky enough to have a spouse who is totally trustworthy, otherwise I can't even trust my own mother. Even she has betrayed me to a point where I can forgive but not forget.
This is a freaking scary ugly cruel painful wretched place.... but when you find an oasis in the desert, it's amazing. I have learned to keep my circle tight, and only put time and effort into those people who are worth it (basically my family and those too weak to stick up for themselves.) I take joy in the simple things. Even a breeze can thrill me.
when I was young all that mattered to me was other people, where I fit in society, who my friends were. I've been there, experienced the let down, now I've moved on. I am now interested in myself, my kids and nature. I am assuming in the natural scheme of life that as I age I will gradually become more and more spiritual before I die. You definitely don't leave earth the same person you were when you arrived.

Here is a funny thought for you on the subject of spirituality: if I have to do this sh*t over again (reincarnation) there is going to be hell to pay!

Hey, would it be weird if we became friends based on our shared interest- the hatred people? It would totally make us hypocrites, therefore I will try to piss you off at least once a week.

Lavinialna you made me LoL thanks! Also inspiring story, thank you for sharing =)

I am thinking major 40 mph thrilling breezes here, the wind blows a lot. Maybe I am missing out on something not standing in it? I read it also helps clear out bad energies..

reincarnation is odd to me.

I think religion is bunk. People should do good things just to do them and be good people just to be good people, not because there's a flaming pit of hell awaiting you or your next life as in reincarnation will be more suffering.

Common sense and being kind.

People often wonder how some of us come to dislike being around people.
I often want to say to them well you should think yourself lucky you have not been around long enough to have encountered as many evil ones as I have to cause you to develop the same conclusion about people as me.
I don't want to tell them to just wait until they are middle aged then they will understand, as it will just get their spikes up more.

And then there is death, the ultimate precursor to being jaded. It's like you finally find someone to help you through it all, and then they are gone forever. Yeah, that is one thing that one can never get used to. It's too much for me. It's literally a very grave subject.

So sorry for your loss
As a parent I always fear the worst for my kids, and then since I have anxiety I sit and worry about it. I have so much to lose, so the worrying is bad.
