Good luck gaining more from them than they get from you.
Doubtful help at best ... quackery at best ...
Common sense people !!

I would have told him the truth. I abhor lying even when it seems like "the right thing to do".
So you would say, "sorry no, you're going to die"?

So I have been regularly seeing a therapist to help deal with stress. She knows that I hate her but I am still willing to go for the sake of my mental health. She wants me to share an experience I had when I was in my early 20’s. She told me to write it down and share it anonymously and for me to think about how and if that helped.......
So I guess I will do so here....ugh this sucks but here I go
When I was 22 I was at a party and doing the whole DD thing. A friend and I are playing a racing game called “most wanted”. At the end of our race another buddy came running into the house screaming at me to help someone that was just hit by a car. They knew that I was CPR certified and had an obligation to help.
I rushed out to help but realized he is in a state that he could not be moved and I knew he could not be saved. I took my shirt off and threw it over the parts that no one should see. I grabbed his hand and talked to him.
Now this is the part that has been eating me up for almost a decade.
He asked me if he was going to be ok. And I lied and said yes. That has been killing me ever since and I think of that exact moment when I become upset for whatever reason. It sucks but that is why I have been talking to someone.
Anyways I did what she asked and that is it.
