Yup, anti psychotics couldn’t “cure” or fix a young man by the time he was 18 so they sent him to Africa to be cured… And it worked?
If only this could work for everyone. There have been some famous cases of people essentially curing themselves of mental illness like schizophrenia.. So anything is possible really… Especially when being told you can overcome it and just to live it out and connect with mountains via a stone. Or maybe it was the fact that someone was treating this guy with dignity and attention something doctors don’t have time for here. Maybe some people don’t have permanent life long periods of mania. Maybe some people can grow out of it like migraines. I don’t really believe in spirits and past lives myself but I have a few friends that do and have
“Visions” on a regular basis. So…. Yeah… I guess if it makes you happy and it’s not ruining your life….
