I apologize for my run on sentences/lack of separated paragraphs etc. I’m pecking this out on my phone
I’m not sure if I can provide links or not but look up on YouTube the channel Truthstream Media & the documentary “The Mind’s of Men”- I have no affiliation with this channel or the documentary but it is absolutely a must see in regard to the Mental Health System. It’s very very long but is packed with very well documented research & references you can follow up with independent research- I hope this helps also. It’s a “heavy” watch but well worth it-I’ve watched it several times personally.

It's great to have recently discovered this forum and I hope it will be a place to interact with other Christian ladies when there is leisure time.
I’m an Orthodox Christian, a matushka, and iconographer, all “vocations” which keep me busy and Christ-centered so I have an “escape” as the world goes crazy.

Welcome. Looking forward to hearing more about you as time goes on and permits.
God Bless you.

Wow-that’s a very mighty subject. One that I don’t feel qualified to speculate on-from a spiritual standpoint I think it may possibly have to do with spiritual issues-ie. The Bible speaks out against fornication-some people in various non-religious groups have mentioned the possibility of Spiritual STD’s that are transmitted between two people who are connecting w/one another-or the notion that when 2 people connect in such a way they share all of their past trauma & spiritual battles etc…I think this is a great argument for the importance of purity & one husband & one wife. However-there have been terrible extremes that have been taken regarding mental illness where people with mental health issueS have been nearly killed because someone thought that person had “demons”- I think this is a great mystery that Science is still trying to understand. Sadly, science has divorced itself from any form of spirituality. From what I’ve read & understood about mental health there are indeed many patterns, labels & categories that some people fall under rather predictably. The FBI studied serial killers when they began to develop profiling back in the 70’s & these individuals fell into clear categories. The big question has always been nature or nurture? From a Christian perspective we believe one is born with a sin nature. In my personal opinion all humans are capable of the worst behaviors hence the saying, “there but for the grace of God-there go I…” Having been raised homeschooled-I don’t think like most of my peers-I enjoy information & have been taught the ability to compartmentalize(society deems it a masculine trait but I like to think it’s just critical thinking) People are far too complex to categorize us of course there are very distinct differences such as male/female etc but God said, we are “fearfully & wonderfully made”-I think our propensity to “categorize” everything is human nature but also (especially more recently) is a result of social condition via society & the “powers that be”. IMO-that is rather “closed minded” & people should be understood & known on a very individualized basis. We should indeed pay attention to the “cover” but one should never judge a book by its cover entirely. I do believe there is mental illness (think Alzheimer’s) What causes it-I am not qualified to say entirely but there are patterns, “red flags”, Nature vs Nurture, DNA, possibly even dietary or hormonal causes & possibly spiritual issues etc…in my opinion I think what constructed as mental illness is an entire amalgamation of many things-Not sure if that helps but maybe at least some food for thought.
I agree with a lot of what you wrote. Priestmonk Kosmas in Australia has very good lectures discussing mental problems in our current time, Ive always found them helpful. One thing I remember him mentioning is a quote from Elder Paisios that today everyone suffers from three things: cancer, divorce, mental illness. It’s a way for modern man to fight his pride because a lot of the time we don’t know how else to. This might explain why modern medicine usually makes mentally ill people worse off than they were prior to seeing the psychiatrist. It’s a cross to accept and bear, not something that can quickly be rid of. In today’s society it’s hard to not be mentally unwell to an extent. That’s why saints are considered the only truly “normal” people.
And one Russian nun said the following:

We don't attack or condemn others. Unlike social networking platforms, we are courteous to each other and do not start arguments with fellow members.

This forum is the only place online visited and I am very thankful to Roosh.

This opportunity has provided a wealth of information and paths to new knowledge. And the ladies met here, so far, are intelligent and a good representation of Christian women.

Also this forum has allowed me to abandon twitter, where there are toxic individuals using the label of Christian to be condescending, and judgmental ( self assertive in a rude way) - fueling misrepresentation of Christianity (tainting the message - Good News).

There are better intellectual approaches to shaming a behaviour, or making an example, without attacking a lost individual. And at the same time helping this lost soul.

Some of these toxic Individuals lack emotional intelligence, or they favour the attention even if negative.

Part of being a Christian is about spreading the Good News and helping others overcome this world snares.

Having good mods and solid guidelines in the Ladies Forum helps greatly. Too many women allow toxic influences to influence them. Hence why so many foreign wives that American Men bring back to America get don't seem to turn out so good once they are marinated in American culture and they become part of toxic social circles.

I converted to Catholicism. As a former coder, the internal cohesion of Catholicism continues to strike me every day.

Welcome to the forum!
Looking forward to interacting!

We had a lovely converted Catholic lady, SAHM, who homeschooled and she too was a former coder.
Unfortunately, I believe she has left the forum.

Have a Blessed day! And Welcome again!

Hello everyone. I'm 23 yo and I'm being introduced into the faith now. I was born in a fake Christian country which culture is extremely violent, secular, predatorial and vulgar. So as a kid I was a target of predators and no one around me tried ever helping me, including my family. Society's indifference towards the abuse I suffered made me a suicidal kid. Thanks to the One Lord and Savior I survived and received the blessing of growing into a healthy woman with lots of hope and a burning desire to get closer to Him.
I have yet to learn a lot and I apologize in advance for my ignorance.
Have a great week :D

Hello,

I am 30, married 5 years ago. I am an Orthodox Christian and seeking to connect with people who are also of faith. I struggled in my marriage for a while, as I was ridiculed by secular society for being 'too young' to be married and that I was missing out in life. I let these comment in and they slowly tainted my vision where I began doubting my life and my marriage immensely which caused great divide and angst between my husband and I. God eventually revealed His path for me, and I finally have peace. I struggle daily with pride and other sins, and I am working on my self spiritually to reach a place of humility, love and acceptance. I am currently reading the New Testament, and each day I am learning and understanding more about the faith. Would love to connect with you all and share some insights and Christian perspectives on life in current times.
I can't believe that mid-twenties is considered "young" for marrying these days. My mother had 4 kids by the time she was 25, but that was by the early 70s. I was unable to have children because at 21 I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure. This really grieved me and I was astonished that my only fertile years were between 11 and 21 years old. That felt pretty insane, but of course had I known this would be the case, I would have tried to marry at 18. I think a young marriage is very good, particularly if both are Orthodox.

If you're a woman, use this thread to introduce yourself.

The Ladies Forum was created for women to ask questions, seek guidance, share their faith, and experience fellowship with other Christians. All members in good standing are welcome to participate here by creating threads or replying to existing ones. Read the announcement thread for more details.

Reminders for female posters

1. We don't allow sharing of identifiable private information. This includes posting pictures of yourself or those you know. Also do not share any detail which allows someone to easily dox you.

Reminders for male posters

1. This isn't a subforum to initiate discussions or heady debates that are targeted towards men. Use the other subforums for that.

2. Be thoughtful when posting advice or spiritual guidance. We don't want to lead women down the wrong path with advice that is confusing or not well thought out.

Enjoy!
Thanks Roosh.
I joined this site largely because I've been looking for information about the New Abnormal--including the Shot--from a Christian viewpoint. And I found that here.
In my late forties now, I was often homebound before 2020. Long story. Iatrogenic illness is real and horrible.
Aside from that my life has been dull. Baptized at six. No spectacular sins. Mine have been sins born of omission and legalism.
I do some blogging and other writing. Working on a third book. And I brew batches of quinine for my church where I'm an active member.

Welcome to the site Rachel. Hope you find the information useful as a Christian forum.

may I ask are the batches storable, and what would be a shelve life?
