Quote# 22201

Hi, I'm 17 now. Pretty much since I can remember I've always been sensitive to the spiritual side in a sense, like I feel when there's an evil presence in my house or wherever I am sometimes, I don't know why it happens, it just does, and boy does it come on strongly sometimes..... like hair standing on the back of my neck thing. There have also been wonderful times where the spiritual feeling has been from God and is Holy.

There is alot of spiritual warfare going on in my home, as Me and my Mother are Christians, but my Dad and Sis aren't..yet.

My point is when it's time for me to go to sleep, its hard as sometimes theres so much fear that strikes me, resulting in this I've been going to sleep with my T.V on for the past.. at least the past year and a half... I' m soo tired of doing this

Theres been many attacks on me spiritually since I was very young (trying to go to sleep I mean) I can remember lying in bed terrified cause of images and thoughts that came out of nowhere! As a child it really is a horrible thing. I just thought it was an over active imagination or whatever at the time, but now I see clearly.

Even last night I went to sleep with my T.v on, I woke up a couple of times during the night and straight away I turned my T.V back on.. for comfort I supose.

Now I KNOW that I have Christ in me and He has authority over all, Light will always overcome darkness, it must be that I let these demons or whatever scare me... pfft how silly of me to let them, they are desperate filth, they cant harm me!

It's a well known fact that demons are attracted to tv's, you stupid boy. Didn't you see the movie Poltergeist?

TV, and the soft glow of a computer monitor. You should stop watching TV and posting on the internet.

Once you get out of that household, you're going to grow up real fast.

Another example of child abuse by any other name..

i feel bad for this guy...

Last I checked, Jesus wasn't a psychiatrist. You're seeing the wrong guy.

It's not every day you see a 17 year old learn the lessons most 8 year olds grasped by the time they were 5 year olds.

No, I think whatever's going on with him is probably more of an anxiety thing, he didn't mention anything about his parents doing stuff to him.

Me, too. This boy needs a psychiatrist. If he's telling the truth and really has been experiencing hallucinations for years, he's suffering from some serious disorder and needs therapy and/or medication. Stupid fundies.

This whole issue, it true, is going to end up being very messy.

Get thee to a professional mental health institution.

I also leave the TV in my bedroom on all night to ward off the demons, yet they still attack me at all hours, trying to sell me amazing vegetable juicers and cookware sets, at rock bottom prices for a limited time.

Religion has screwed you up dude.

3/18/2007 5:36:44 PM


get thee to a mental health professional!

if you are having anxiety attacks there is help availble that will actualy solve the problem!

3/18/2007 5:54:33 PM


I just thought it was an over active imagination

And you were right. Too bad you decided to rely on religion rather than common sense.

Unless of course the people who suggested that this was something that a psychiatrist needed to look into. But even then, it's still not Jesus.

How did you go to sleep with the TV on, then wake up and turn it back on?

Professional therapy will give you the greatest chance of success through your trials. Jesus comforts and guides us, but he still can't prescribe medication.

Best wishes.

I know he's 17, but I'm assuming the parents still have *some* authority over him; why the hell are they letting him have a tv in his room? It's not healthy and can fuck with your sleep. A lack of sleep might account for the way he's feeling (barring any psychiatric disorder) yet no one's saying \"turn off the tv, turn off the computer, and get into bed by 10 pm so you don't feel like a walking zombie the next morning\".

You´re a little too imaginative and cheeky, in my opinion.

A few words of advice: the monsters under your bed are no more real than your imaginary friend is.

This person sounds schizophrenic. I suggest a health professional and some meds stat.

...Me and my Mother are Christians, but my Dad and Sis aren't..yet

If your Dad and Sis are smart, they'll get the fuck out before the two of you drive them insane.
I know I wouldn't hang around long if my spouse was to go all \"born again\" on me (Not that there's much of a chance of that happening).

Anyone who can't sleep without having a TV on or who is having bad dreams to the point where they're afraid to sleep has a problem that isn't going to be solved simply by hoping that Christ is going to protect them. I agree with others - he needs professional help.

Well, I know a wizard who can help with that... do you live in Chicago...?
