Dear Chris and Maisi
I have a problem,
Definitely not feeling too good just now.
to alleviate my distress, I am drinking camomile tea and I am writing here. I have turned down volume on the TV
and out of the corner of my eye I can see a pile of knitting wool and nearly finished projects too stressed to sort 'em out.
maybe writing to you folks will be a way of clearing my head, I extremely stressed
and haven't felt this way since I came off my meds.
The trigger, as I think it is called, is my relationship with a lady I know locally, and with whom I became friends.
She is ultra religious. ( Christian faith).
Well, I have been to some of the services in her fellwship, but it is not really for me. I intended to go on occasion, just to be sociable.
We kept in touch on Whatsapp - a very useful tool in my view, How did we ever manage without it?
Anyway, people can send photos, voice files, films e.t.c. via whats app and it is all very nice.
I do as well. I can keep up with my family is different parts of the world this way.
Well, this ultra religious lady started sending me videos of people burning in Hell and such.
Then also a short film about people that might be witches - no explanation just these awful films.
I did not open the last film that was sent from her number, but now I have become very stressed and nervy and jumpy.
I think maybe I need to confront her, no not confront her, just speak to her and tell her how awful I felt after seeing those films.
I feel really ill. I feeel she has abused my friendhsip and my trust.
there seems alot of this about.
Any ideas on how I can bring healing and peace of mind into my head ?
I feel really vulnerable and ill.
