As some of you know, I personally suffer from Scrupulosity and have
felt at one time I have commited this awful sin against God. You can
read about my experiences here:
I think it's a compelling subject matter and I've personally done alot
of research and praying about this, I just need people who suffer from
this crippling fear to help me tell the world about it.
If you're interested, email rinkjustice@rocket_NO_SPAM_PLZ_mail.com
I've don't think I've ever commited the 'Unpardonable Sin' since I don't
believe in God, which I suspect is a prerequisite. Maybe not. I really
don't know. Either way, if you ever need 'sinners' of other sorts, I'd
be happy to help you out.
Add a dot on each side of the 'r' in my name
and a 'c' in front of lara to email me.
I like being called a Jesus freak (note the capital "J", ahem). It
tells me I'm doing something right :)
I'll try and squeeze you in somehow Ann darling... maybe as a Satan
Does being a worshiper of Satan mean you also believe in the existence
of God since the concept of Satan a Christian concept?
I believe in the existence of Satan about as much as I believe in the
existence of Santa.
<filming a documentary>
Publishing an article would be more straightforward.
<on those who suffer from Scrupulosity>
My problem is that people are not interested in this topic. They don't want to
be told that they are morally sloppy.
<OCD regarding religious themes>
My belief system is eclectic, but I have serious scrupulosity that has caused me
enormous employment suffering. It doesn't have to be religious; any kind of
moral system will do.
<particularly those who feel they've at one time commited the Unpardonable Sin.>
This is severe self-blame, a psychologically significant problem. Discuss it
with your treating therapist.
<I'd like a few volunteer subjects who would allow me to film them>
As I said, this is a bit impractical. I can record .AVI videos and e-mail them.
But more than a few seconds and my correspondents complain of too big file-size!
<hear their stories.>
I have some exerpts in my support group page.
But I am more interested in behaviour therapy for treating this problem.
<I have filming equipment and an editing system at my disposal>
I think that for you this is a solution seeking a problem.
<no funding at this embryonic stage>
Save your money and use a less demanding medium.
<have felt at one time I have commited this awful sin>
The antisocial personalities can commit serious criminal acts without remorse.
What you have is a disease.
<I think it's a compelling subject matter>
I think, from the reactions I've gotten to my own scrupulosity problem, that
it's a bloody bore. Get on with your life despite your problem, and stop
wallowing in it!
<I've personally done alot of research and praying about this>
That's it! Quit worrying, and get on with living, instead.
<tell the world about it.>
No, the world does not want to know. I found an academic plagiarising, and
called in the university's Copyright Officer. I got a reference from the Head Of
Department, saying that he never wanted me back there! Martyrdom is not as
rewarding as the Moslems might have us believe.
Never tell a lie when you can bullshit your way through.
That's a very good point!
>Quit worrying, and get on with living, instead.
This IS how I live, this is what I do. Some people sit on the porch
watching cars go by, (or read newgroups all day, adding their two
I ruminate - not wallow - about matters of a spiritual nature.
