Suffering mental issues does not make you an expert on the subject
edit on 21-9-2012 by loves a conspiricy because: (no reason given)
I have to add my two cents - being a mentally ill person has made me somewhat of a self proclaimed expert on metal issues as I have read everything
and anything I could get my hands on related to the subject. So in a way, I do believe that those of us that are afflicted may have more knowledge on
the subject than others.
Now to the OP, this is a very interesting happening! I too would look into the history of the house, people your wife has been in contact with in the
past who may have moved on, etc. I can honestly say that we all have people that are no longer of this world around us at any given moment, yet not
everyone is able to 'see' them. Your wife may be either more sensitive than most, or they have something of importance to share with her.
Thank you for confirming that those of us who do suffer tend to research a lot about it, I'm mentally ill, not mentally retarded ie I have the
ability to learn and understand as best I can about the social psychological issues I have and the effects of depression do hinder me but it does not
mean I cannot understand them, I simply can't make my brain block them.
As for the thing that is happening to my wife, as I say I'm a logic / science based person, I find spirits and ghost illogical (not being rude to
people) but I also know that there's a massive part of the brain that we really have no clue about so part of me wonders if its possible a person
could be like a satellite dish and pick up on energy of some sort. The logical part of me say that we have a lot to learn about US and the world
around us, we are by no means the experts we imagine ourselves to be but logic dictates (god I hate the Star Trek reference) that we must have
Therefore I leave myself open to anything as long as it can be verified.
As said, obviously I'm not easy with hearing my wife called mentally ill BUT I did ask the initial question so there's no bad feelings meant, I'm
merely only human with feelings. I talked to her as we watched TV last night and she herself said "maybe I am going mad", it was said in a half
hearted way but I can say she and I have both had things happen we cannot explain and we had witnesses on almost all of the 5 times. I really have no
explanation for what happened and it made no sense whatsoever to me or the people who saw these things.
I still as a logical person am compelled to be at odd with myself as to what we saw / heard but I do know others saw / heard too. Do you know how hard
that is for a man who likes to logically break down events to make sense of them
Before I become more of the thread than I wanted to be you can read about how the mental issues affected / affect me from my blog link in the sig, I
don't hear voices etc.
I'm an atheist for many reasons to boring to go into so talk of demons sort of goes on the 'Yeah, right' list almost instantly whereas my wife is
religious but not in a must pray devote my life to god way, she just believes in a god being responsible for us while I don't, makes for some great
But, back to the point, is my wife an out and out nutcase, no, not at all, could she be suffering from stress or a mental issue, I would hope not but
I have to leave that as a possibility but I will say this does not manifest itself in any other part of her daily life, she does not go shopping and
see dead people etc nor does she have the typical traits of a person suffering from a mental issue.
For me its like being stuck between a rock and a hard place, the head says there's no such thing as ghosts so makes her sound ill, then my mind says,
but she's not ill I can see that. And then of course I have to make sense of what I've seen myself which I can't but logic says I saw, others saw
so there must be an explanation that has a science base.
Apologies for rambling a tad, I guess I've really answered the very question I sought an answer for and got now thinking of it more the reactions I
should have expected to get.
Thanks for all the posts people, unlike many this thread was not about stars, flags or attention, it was a mere question and its been answered.
Thanks for helping, appreciated......Read you later...
