Cut the philosophy sh*t

I think that any discussion regarding any kind of philosophy is the last thing anyone needs on this forum., Discussing Nietzsche, Hegel, Polany, is like trying to put your fire out with gasoline. I am in to that stuff as well but now is not the time in my opinion for any of you to be discussing such things of that matter. I have cut the philosophy out of my mind for quite some time now, and boy do I feel really good.

This board, in one incarnation or another has been in existence since @1987. These arguments about what's relevant and irrelevant in the main forum have gone on just as long.
So how did this work before this internet thing?

You would have been alone or with few who understood.

No truer words were ever said. Hey, there are some of us here, cough, who wrote our papers in high school and university on these old machines called typewriters, and we had to use this stuff called White-Out to correct the innumerable mistakes at 2 a.m. on a paper due at 8 a.m. Ah, those were the days.

I was diagnosed in 1975. Believe it or not, there wasn't Prozac, there wasn't the internet, and by God, there wasn't Britney Spears! How did I manage, LOL.

Ah, life is rich.

But serioulsy, when I found this forum -- 1999 I believe, May, when I first got online (and finally parted with my old DOS Dell Dinosaur) -- I found I wasn't alone. Why therapists don't mention that is beyond me.

Wait a minute. Andy's board started in 1997, NINETY SEVEN.

A few other sites existed, one on AOL that I stumbled across on a friend's Apple computer -- she had money, I didn't.

Also I haven't been drinking,

A lot of folks have been alone for a long time. This board is gold.
Lets stop exploring spiritual, philosphical, or alternative explanations and connections. Because it is only when we are unified in our absolutely correct and consensual view of mental illness that anyone will be cured.
I agree Scattered, but who is correct ? When will 'it' be correct?. As you know, we can barely come to a consensus about something simple as a, well, simple thing. A tree if you like. So I wouldn't hold your breath.

We should all live in a Brave New World, devoid of spirituality, philosophy and alternative explanations. A world full of conformity, Soma, sexual (but disease free) promiscuity and Epsilon drones to clean our bums.

I can't decide whether I'm being sarcastic or I actually agree with you here. I'm leaning toward the latter. I think.
Scattered wasnt being serious. He's yanking everybody's chain. If that wasnt sarcasm, I dont know what is. Relax!

No don't relax. Never let anyone tell you to relax. Let the ideas flow and keep the faith brother (ok well...maybe not faith).

I'm going to go look at porn now.
Yeah that's the messed up thing. People had to wait for the internet to know they weren't alone when doctors could have told them all along. But at least there were medical journals which I'm sure Dreamer has read every one of on the subject of depersonalization. :wink: I know I've spent countless hours at the medical library here looking through them. On the internet though were you can type in "Depersonalization" and it throws up every article with it. How did you search journals without the internet? I'm rambling. I just woke up.
