Websites Of Possible Interest

Hello To My Fellow Searchers For Sanity

To me, there are only two premises (foundations) of reasoning which matter and which will determine the ultimate outcome of all we say and do.

Mental Health:Mutual respect for boundaries, which runs in both directions at the same time, ultimately heals both the individual and the group.

Mental Illness:
Boundary violation which runs in either, or both directions, ultimately sickens both the individual and the group. I would like to offer this list of Websites to anyone who may be able to use them for support. Many of them have been helpful to me in my own recovery. Take what you can use, from the place you are at right now, and leave what you can't use. You may, or may not, be able to use it at a later stage of your recovery. Remember to question the concepts of everything you hear and read, including what I post here you. That is part of forming your own boundaries.

Best Wishes to all who are working towards real healing. I believe it is possible for all people,
labelled or otherwise to do so. Be very cautious if you are on "medications." Many cause the "symptoms" which are claimed to be part of a disease process. Sudden withdrawals though, can cause more problems than you might think. Educate yourself and stay safe.
Connect to people who are well, and have made it through ahead of you. There is no better support group than those who have had the experience themselves. We get it.

Some Of My Suggested Websites: I will add to this list as I have time. There is a large, and growing number of others which will be of benefit also. Inclusion in this list does not necessarily infer approval of every word, from everyone, but is offered to aid in the persoanl search for meaning of individuals.
