Beautiful. Thank you!

I think you could have left the "mental hospital" part of it out. Addicts
are not for mental hospitals. They don't interact respectfully with
psychotic people. Your philosophy is great for you, but it's not stopping
anyone terrorized by demonic voices. Most people in mental hospitals have a
poor long-term prognosis, many and most will not be married, have kids or
live on their own. Most people with repetitive involuntary psychiatric
internment will have to go on disability. They'll often have very, if any,
friends and be rejected by what family they had. This is not what you're
talking. These just aren't your people. I understand the title gets clicks,
but people on court ordered anti-psychotics don't give TED talks about
accepting themselves. That's a cognitive therapy strategy. Major mental
illnesses have pharmacological solutions; all the talk and diet and
supplements come in a very distant second. The probate courts make sure of
this. Your problems are legitimate to you and you've triumphed, but you not
fighting a legitimate major genetic based mental health issue. The title
could have been anything about recognizing your problems and a method of
dealing with them you discovered them. In mental hospitals people scream at
demons, they throw chairs. They are injected with medication against their
will. They are strapped to beds. Alcohol is horrible but in different ways.
Treatment programs are different. Some of these places have manicures and
spas. That's not a mental hospital.

School . 'A 200 year old mental wrecking system. How ironic that there are
so much alternative ways to educate the young.. But we keep clinging to
a'jungle model'. where a few strong/popular rule..(for a few years). Giving
the rest of the kids neuroses for life. When school is over these same
'strong ones' end up in jail, Or become CEO's .Still we wonder why our
society is such a mess, and why people never change...

I wanted to watch your presentation, unfortunately I wasn't allowed.
Instead I was given high anxiety and an invisible person telling me that
you don't deserve to be on stage. This really hurts me because we are a lot
alike. This sort of thing continues to happen to me (and I'm sure others).
I feel that there are people pretending to be God, commanding my brain to
feel like you mentioned at the beginning of your lecture, (unfortunately
like I said, I wasn't given permission to watch the rest of it). I'm
praying this is going to stop happening. I've never felt anything like
this. I have never been attached to technology before. I'm hoping this will
change. I'm so tired and ill from this.

God bless

I was put in a eating disorder recovery facility for 3 months of my life.
When the doctor told my mother that it was really bad and that I needed to
be put in a 'safer place', I cried for hours. I wanted to jump of the stair
case and break my neck. My mum simply sat down in the corridor and said '
how do you want your funeral to be organised?'. We sat together talking
about my funeral and who I was going to invite, then my mum said that 'you
better get to it then'. It was weird because we weren't laughing or crying,
it was very serious. I didn't do it, and I couldn't do it. I look back on
the situation every single time I am confronted with something that makes
me feel sad and vulnerable, because it makes me laugh. That sounded
psychotic but it just seems funny to me now. I live my life now with dark
humour as the centre of it because if you can't learn to laugh at death
then you will end up scared and worried of not living it properly. My
eating disorder taught me so many lessons but the biggest lesson was just
laugh at life because you only live a very short time so why not laugh your
way through it😄

Yep, thoroughly enjoyed this video and can relate to it 100%. I got fed up
with 'identify' after 11 years in AA. My feelings are what guide me too and
I don't live from my head anymore. My head was & still can be, where my
problem lies. I still suffer from anxiety without medication around some
alcoholics (long story but involves a traumatic experience) but generally,
I feel good about myself. I do enjoy a simple, quiet life with the help of
medication and I no longer lie about being fine, unless it's the kind of
fine which is 'fucked up, insecure, neurotic & emotional'.

This is odd - I was labeled insane because I told the truth and hid nothing
- and got called a fake... In the mental hospital, I began to fake sanity
in order to get away from the boredom and get back out... This has helped
me understand my addict ex, though...

I like her dedication and passion and I liked the lessons she got from the
mental hospital. However, it hit me... having a baby after hooking up
during a binge party is not being "chosen". Almost all the people on this
planet can have a baby from a random sex encounter. This is nothing to be
proud of, in my opinion. A story like thousand others.

This is a brave, bold statement. I've always admired and respected the
sincerity that people can show, because for better or for worse, if we are
to survive as a species, we need to be understood. We can't be understood
without the courage and the sincerity to speak what we believe, otherwise
others do not hear our message, and do not see things within those messages
that could help make themselves better people.

After all, people are like disco balls, we don't get to see every side of
them at once, its only with time, patience, and a bit of luck, that we get
to see them shine in a bright, beautiful light such as we have seen right

I used to have peace... but then I had a serious hand injury at work, and
after 5 surgeries in 8 months I was addicted to Vicodin... I kicked this
habit cold turkey with HORRIBLE withdrawals that lasted 3 weeks- 3 weeks of
hell.... Then began my alcohol addiction, and it has me by the balls. I've
been drunk every fkng night for the past 3 yrs straight. It's ruined my
marriage and I've hurt people..I've been in jail for disorderly conduct. I
irresponsibly allowed one of my dogs to get loose, and he ended up with his
skull crushed on the highway... My mom is in hell because of my stupid fkng
ass... I hate my job and sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, as the
saying goes...I'm manic-depressive also... I'm only happy if I have
alcohol, weed, and pain killers; otherwise, I'm fkng miserable.. I need
help. I had a phychiatrist tell me that my trajectory is suicide and/ or
prison.. I'm hanging by a thread, it feels. Since this past Wed, I've
said, "Today I won't drink." But I drink. THursday, same fkng thing..
Friday, ditto... What the fk do I do? I've called off over 30x this
year at work; it's a fkng miracle that I still have a job. I hate my
fucking job (I know, everyone does)... How do I make the first step? And
what IS the first step???

I listened to what she had to say, and I'm glad it worked for her. I
listened to her advice, and it simply made me feel sad and ashamed at not
achieving her success. I find my safest, happiest moments are when I'm out
in the "messy" life she describes, but away from other people and manmade
stuff. For many, that might be considered a true basis of chaos. For me, it
simply feels reasonably safe. I've been unable to make sense of people, and
after several decades of trying, I'm losing my interest in doing so.

But I cheer her on in her endeavors, and to the extent her words make sense
for others, I think that's a good thing. I wish her well.

At 13:00, there must be a disconnect in her presentation, or else I am
missing something. For she says on the one hand that she now is "not
perfect", but is a "fully human being". Then a few seconds later, she says
she is still "exactly the same person" ("scared, anxious, oily, ALL the
time") that she was before. I don't get it.

My point is this, what praytell is the point of going through all this
mental health treatment hell ("dark night of the soul") if she is still
"exactly the same person" as she was before?

The elephant in the room is called "Socially Approved and Oprah-Excused
Parental Neglect." Oprah literally lives to brush parental neglect under
the carpet, and make excuses for it when she is forced to acknowledge it.
An 8 year old with bulimia? She was neglected by her parents! And I
guarantee no one will acknowledge it, unless they are excusing it. Being a
loving parent is not as important as having 'nice clothes' and a 'nice
house.' Our society is a joke.

In the mental hospital there was no pretending. What hospital were you in?

Life has become about fitting in with the crowd where people get shamed if
they are different. If life could be more like a mental hospital where
everyone is ok with being different and everyone is there to help each
other instead of make fun of them for their problems this world would be a
much better place. But, of course we must look at the greatest good for the
greatest number of people. This approach encourages their being a 'group'
that everyone must fit into. It encourages people to try to be like
everyone else because it's just easier that way. It's sad to say that
nothing will probably ever change about this situation, but I'm glad to see
that more people are accepting that it's ok to take paths less traveled,
and its ok to show case the person that you truly are. Like she mentioned,
when someone asks "How are you today?" everyone automatically replies with
"I'm good and you?" even if it's the worst day of their life. Everyone
experiences trials and tribulations but they only seem to talk about the
good moments in life. When people go through hard times many of them feel
alone because we all hide our feelings and act like everything is ok. If
people actually shared their tough times with each other we wouldn't feel
alone or abandoned because we know other people are experiencing the same
things as we are. If this way of thinking could become the greatest good
for the greatest number of people this world would probably be a lot easier
to handle.

suicide for a guy.
