Helping someone get help
« on: January 14, 2013, 08:21:24 PM »
If you're having mood swings due to racing thoughts pertaining to your carnal desires, you can always seek help.

I don't know how I could do that without embarassing myself or crossing the child-parent line. "Hey mom, dad, I kinda need some help and/or medical attention because I'm having severe mood swings due to giving up masturbation and carnal desires due to my new religion that you never really approved of." It just seems very odd to me.

Ask your guidance counselor at school for resources.  Once a resource has been identified, then let your parents know.

At first I was confused why this is a new thread, but now I see. Just wanted to agree with SolEX01  8)

I'll give that some consideration, thanks. Dude, you probably didn't have to make a new thread though.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

He started a new thread because the other one was a prayer thread, and you aren't allowed to give advice in those ones, they're just for prayers/well wishes.

Since this is out of the prayer thread.

LOL at the subject of that thread.
