Perissos Resources

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

Please remember this forum is not intended as a full-service counseling solution and should not be considered a replacement for crisis intervention, medical care, or psychological/psychiatric advice.

  • Psychiatric Help 5 Cents

    Dee Dee is working on the guidelines for this forum, so this will be redundant once that's completed. But, since the forum is new, I wanted to personally welcome you and tell you a little bit about the theme here.

    Perissos Resources on TWeb is designed to serve as a "Minute Clinic," where you may ask questions and receive my response. Think of this forum as a Christian "Dear Abby." I'm a licensed Pastoral Counselor and Certified Christian Life Coach, so my responses come from this perspective.

    Please remember this forum is not intended as a full-service counseling solution and should not be considered a replacement for crisis intervention, medical care, or psychological/psychiatric advice. The reader is fully responsible for their response to anything read here and is encouraged to seek appropriate local resources appropriate for their health and wellness needs.

    Your comments to those posing questions should be respectful and gracious at all times, though these threads aren't intended for lengthy discussion and certainly not or debate.

    So, who would like to step us with the first question? The counselor is in!

          Voices in the head may be a sign of serious psychosis. Please do not ignore this symptom. I urge you to consult a psychiatric professional as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please remember that God can and does perform miracles. If you send me all your money, I'll put in a good word for you.

            This is and a blatant misuse of this forum.

                    Those are actually my squirrels whispering in your ear and telling you to send me your bacon. I can't blame you for misunderstanding it though. "Squee-skwik, squeeetk, squeek" does sound a lot like "Squee-squik sqeeeetk, squeek" to the untrained ear.

                      Oh no, I added the squirrels to my new coat last week. Could you send about ten more? I'm almost finished...

                          Just to be clear, I'm going to allow spam in this forum in this thread and this thread alone.

                          Do not test me.

                            Dearest Jardin:

                            Sometimes when I'm watching television I see people in night clubs and at parties really enjoying themselves and I'm usually home alone, brushing my cats, wondering why I exist.

                            Is this normal?

                            Love,

                              Dear Trout:

                              "Normal," is a difficult term, wouldn't you agree? I encourage you to remember your identity is in Christ and, as such, you are in this world but not of it. In that regard, I would have to say that it is perfectly "normal" not to feel "normal," because you are not a citizen of this world. Rejoice, I say, in your doubts of normalcy.

                              It is also important to note that God has given us dominion over all the creatures of the earth and, as such, the amount of time spent brushing your cat is directly related to the size of your reward in heaven.

                              I trust your concerns have been allayed.

                              Blessings,

                              Lynn
