Don't be so hard on yourself. Sure you are a hypocrite, but that is only a symptom of a much deeper pathology. I suggest you show your team of therapists your web site. Doing that will definitely assure the rest of us that you will be busy elsewhere through the remainder of our lifetimes and yours.

That is what I have been telling you.

Mine is not a moral nor even personal judgement, but merely a demonstration that you meet the diagnostic criteria. I made no attempt to assess the severity of your illness, just that you meet the diagnostic criteria.

I feel that is my responsibility. But what you do with that information is up to you.

If you would like more details about your condition, and types of treatment available, then feel free to PM me.

Gwen is an avid mental health supporter. She has been a keynote speaker at a ICSPP (International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology) conference. She is against the abuses and cover-ups of big pharma. I applaud her work.

Looks like I am a queen up.

Then you applaud the Gwen Olsen videos where she compares the psychiatric profession with a bunch of psychopaths that knowingly prostitute themselves for money by prescribing extremely damaging drugs that have absolutely no proven medical benefits?

I did not watch the video. I know of her work and she is applauded by mental health professionals.

Take things out of broader context much?

You're obviously not interested in listening to Gwen Olsen, she being so highly applauded and all.

Let me guess, you got a diagnosis you didn't agree with and now the whole profession is suspect. Pretty soon, or maybe that time has passed, you will be the only expert in every field, left on earth in your mind.

The demonstrated thesis at everythingimportant.org/ is very broad; it has broad support and it's very consistent. What Gwen Olsen has testified to is obviously true.

Thanks for your testimony also. Your inability to debate a powerful thesis confirms a simple truism:

I have listened and read enough of her stuff to know her issues and attitudes.

She is a staunch proponent of Chiropractic medicine.

And from delusional ones.


Funny that you consider yourself superior but the rest of us see you as a bit of a clown, at best.

Why do you think it is that no one takes you seriously?

How does that make you feel?

You site appears to be broken. it just redirects to a long religious tirade by someone who had nonsensical beliefs about the bible.

Are you hiding the bulk of your insanity in iceberg fashion?

That's exactly the way God wants it until judgment day where I'll be proven right and your condemnation of yourself will be proven right also.

Typical paranoid. Absolutely classic.

I have worked with dozens of clients just like you.

I recommend Geodon and intense psychotherapy.

Now, now. Remember that the rule of law is that he has to be demonstrably a danger to self or others or grossly psychotic (so that he may inadvertently pose a threat to self or others) to be institutionalized.

While our friend is bat guano crazy, no doubt, he does not seem to be dangerous. With a possible exception of being dangerous to the weak minded that should be noted.

But if he had a following he would not be spreading his nonsense here. He would be butchering his flock.

By a powerful thesis do you mean the efforts of a little man puffed on self importance and denial, quoting great men in a desperate effort to ride their achievements to some semblance of credibility and throwing all this in an obscure blog that even your dog won't waste time reading?

I have to go along with Elohim on this one. Laughing at you could get to be a habit.
