i feel i have been following by some one for two or three years till now, and i need some response from our sociey to make it over.

i prepare to die if nobody is able to talk in this case.

Annie what do you mean you prepare to die? Are you ok?
Report as
i mean i would try till i die. it is very important both to me and to others.

Oh Annie I am so sorry I did not see this. I hope you see my response very soon. Annie, I have read your website and also the first websites you posted when you first came here. I have read them all and have studied them very very closely , especially the extensive one with the plotting of your symptoms, when they came, what you were thinking, ...I forgot the name but I believe you had it on Microsoft Excell and the other one which I forgot the name of...was it Microsoft Access? So I am very familiar with your case because my mother had the same diagnosis and did get better after she got older. You must listen to me Annie because I would NEVER LIE TO YOU EVER. You have a very special place in my heart which I save a spot just for you. Please believe me when I tell you that you are going through a delusional period right now, I am not lying to you I promise, and this will go away as soon as you contact your doctor to help you just a little bit so you can see things correctly. The chip is not there because you have proven this through your science you used to prove that. So since you proved that the chip is NOT there in your head, that means No one is following you. Annie, listen to me. I would never ever lie to you. Go back to your doctor and tell him that the evidence You have proven is beginning to fade in front of you and you are become unsure again about what is real and unreal. Do not stop your life because of the people following you because no one is following you. You have spent years proving this through meticulous theory, experiments, tests, evidence , and conclusions. Fhe work you did which took years is true. What you are feeling right now is not true. Remember your evidence. Hold on to that as the truth. If you left us Annie we would miss you, especially me and TruthisObvious. We both care for you very much and we have no reason to lie to you. Remember we have no reason to lie to you. Get just enough medicine to keep you with us and to remember what is real. Please don't be embarrassed and PLEASE
Report as
don't be afraid of me (my name is Rebecca) and don't be afraid of TruthisObvious . We are your true friends and we care for you. You know this always happens when it's been too long before you ask for help. Everyone does the same thing. We all wait too long and we all get afraid and embarrassed. I am angry because my notifications just now showed you left me a message and you needed me yesterday and I just saw this. Remember your research on your own illness and remember your evidence. It is scientific. Remember that what you are feeling now is NOT scientific so it can't be real. Promise me you will get your help from the doctor who knows you and tell him everything . I can't write everything here Annie because it is not confidential enough here and I need you to listen to me. Do not listen to what is not there. I promise I will never lie to you. I know what I am saying because I helped my mother her whole life. My mother believe me and you can believe me too. Please got to the doctor who knows you and tell him they are back so he can help you see this scientifically again. I will be waiting for your answer.
Report as
To anyone else besides Annie and Obvious-please do not respond to this because it is very fragile. Unfortunately, this is the only way I have to speak to Annie. Thank you.

Annie-I forgot to say, try to stop worrying about society right now. It will be okay. There's nothing we can do about society right now on this. Maybe later but not now. It takes time. Go to your doctor please. He knows you best. Remember your evidence from your Microsoft Excell.

Sincerity, you dispoint me because i can rely on myself and i am against doctor's advice. I know it is just an answer to help me, i don't want to kill the Australia Visa Officer who has followed me in my room for two or three years.

it is possible for the Australia Visa Officer to do because he could have helped me and it should be a great intellectual property right in our world to heal schizophrenia.

If everybody is rather see millions' persons' live over than talking to him/her, the world die.

doctor is never the person to help me.

anyone who see this question could give comments here and please see more from my website: http://www.enjoy-our-way.com/

Sorry, there are some grammer mistakes just now, I should rewrite it in this way "If everybody would rather see a person's live over than talking to him/her, and even if millions' persons could be healed in the same way, the world should die very soon."
Report as
I just don't know what kind of difficulties he has encountered. But I would have to insist even the Australia Visa Officer is a real bastard, and I wouldn't care anything else when I do this, because this is not a world which is good enough to get married or have children if nobody is willing to take care of this case.
Report as
when our society has died, i die and let anyone else who can live as long as they can behind me. I told i would try to change our society till i die.
Report as
I should put the doctors in jail if they were not able to understand that "my eyes never go wrong, and I would believe after I see" and if all doctors can't support me to make the hysteroscopy check done and let me see if there was really a "sensor" there.

Even I told the doctors that I would be fully responsible for the result and I would make my family to sign for this, I could not get help. I don't know why I got this help in the end, but I think it could be the Australia Visa Officer who helped me because he was the only one who agreed to help me in person and there was some evidences to tell that it had to be him.

Has he left completely after he helped me?
Report as
I sent my story to more than 3000 psychiatrists or the related persons I found in universities about one week ago and try to ask for help and tell them "schizophrenia is a false concept", but I found out that they rarely read it, and acturally I got much less readers after I sent the emails.
Report as
Annie you gotta go see your doctor. He will help you.

Sincerity this too much for me. I am at a loss. I've dealt with this before but I feel like my words will fall on deaf ears right now. She has to see her doctor.
Report as
i know my way ahead, and I am going to let more and more people know about the right way out. you should try to read carefully, truthisobvious.

i sent the mails for 11 days because i can only send 300 mails per day, after I just finished one week ago and I really expect them to start o examin what I have told in my story, but it is a big dispointment.

more and more poeple are going to know the right way, and even if i have be ruined in this way, i try to give what I have said to other people.
Report as
Annie- I want to support you. On the other hand, I think you may have lost it with the sensor in you brain thing and the Australia visa officer. It all sounds so mental hospital to me. I'm not going to put you down or say you are wrong but until you get published I'm going to cavalierly dismiss your claims. I mean no disrespect, I'm just a hard skeptic with an open mind.
Report as
truth, what if the visa officer has really arranged some monitoring in my room? do you think it is easy to persuade a doctor to make the check done? what would he do if he really helped me to persuade the doctor?

do you think "touch the facts" is not important to heal "delusion" and "hallucination"? even he never helped me to persuade a doctor, he should not promise me that way even once and left without any words anymore. i don't think it is easy for any man to tell the words to me, and he was the only one.

if he loved what i have told him, he should have a lot of reason to do so, and maybe he wanted me to yell and get him out, he can't come out by himself. don't you think this is the best way to support what I have said about schizophrenia?
Report as
Sincerety, I know you don't have to lie to me, but the problem is that you don't really know everything. You never know the Visa Officer and you never know what he might have done.

I also don't know him very much because I only talked with him via internet, but I know my own way out, I have to tell everything to as many people as I can if he is not able to speak to me directly. I have been getting better and better after I got the help from doctor and after the "sensor" disappeared, I really can't return back to medicine anymore.

It should not be so difficult for a man to talk to a woman he has tried to help in private, if he can't talk with me in private and if I have to talk to him, I have to search help from our society, if I can't search help from our society in this case, then I really have mental diseases.

Devoted to the service of God. Set apart from the World. Exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness. Sacred.

I hope we can serve for people. I would hate myself if i think people are evil and dirty. If I have to be friend of others and I have think people are evil meanwhile, i would feel tortures inside all my life.

I have to think that people are born to be good and kind to each other and then I can feel integrated and want to be friend of someone or serve for them.

To be a good person in our eyes is nothing compare to the Righreousness of God.

Jesus Himself said:

Mark 10:17-18

17 Now as He was going out on the road, one came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?”

18 So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. 19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not defraud,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’”

Jesus was perfect. He made that statement because He knew nothing good comes from the flesh.


Romans 3:21-26

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.


Romans 3:10-18

10 As it is written:


“There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”
13 “Their throat is an open tomb;
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”;
“The poison of asps is under their lips”;
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

i have to be good in my eyes, otherwise, my eyes would be covered by others. i never see the God and talk to the God and I can never believe it. If the God is there, He must have given me instructions before I was born, so I shall follow these instructions inside of me.

It's a little amusing to me but if I were religious I'd probably think it a bit offensive. My Christian friend thinks they need to add a raspberry filled Jesus on it, he's a cynic about everything though and even I think he's kind of a dark individual.

It literally means "devoted to God" yet what it means to me on a personal level is the reverence and dedication in being of service to God.
The most obvious way to be of service to God is by being of service to His children who are in need. It is through service to others that we can most fully realize what it means to be "holy."

In a secular world, the word holy has no real meaning, as all spiritual things, all supernatural things, are ignored. "Holy" means "set apart, devoted" as one sets apart the "good" dishes for Sabbath or company, or one might use the company phone only for company use. When applied to a church building, it means we see the church as set apart for worship; we don't use the church building for selling groceries or an insurance company.

I am variously full of myself and abased, but my age has taught me to neither wallow in pity or self-doubt, nor float on clouds of self-importance. And though I usually think I am right, I am aware I can get it wrong (my wife reminds me, frequently).

I think labeling something or someone "holy" invokes immediate respect, fear, or awe from religious persons. It has shock value. "Holy" means very little to me on a personal level, but I respect others beliefs (until provoked), and try not to show disdain for their idols.

i think "holy" is "honest", "brave" and "forgiveness" when mutual understanding is meet.

we are able to argue with each other when we have disagreement, but it doesn't mean that we are not holy if we mean to solve the problem and we mean to persuade each other seriously. and it is not so right if we try to cheat or refuse to talk and just argue with each other.

The Hebrew and Greek words for “holiness” convey the idea of purity or religious cleanness, of being set apart from defilement. The holiness of God refers to his absolute moral perfection.

what is clean or pure? i think it is clean or pure if we try to solve some "dirty" trouble seriously and honestly, it is not so clean or pure if we try to stay away from some "dirty" trouble and try to "keep ourselves clear or pure".
