Hello, i have a stupid and weird problem.

Hi!
I am mainly an atheist, but after being on a different forum it somehow 'triggered' a 'psychotic/delusional' experience.

My doctor says that Quetiapine doesnt work in the small dose i take. But what i dont understand is why he doesnt take the dosage up.

I am afraid of hell. Which sounds stupidi know.

Any input would be great so i can battle my fear. I have had such problems before due to a movie i watched and it conflicted with school, so i need to avoid another pit.

I am not a troll! Someone said that in another thread.
How can i prove i am not a troll? I do not intend to troll anyone.
I am having genuine problems.

Thanks in advance.

Well ask yourself do you

Well ask yourself do you believe in an afterlife? The entire existence of the afterlife was a recruitment method used by Christians when the religion was first formed, so that they could recruit followers through fear. After all, only the most successful ones have this heaven or hell ideology. Remember there are thousands of different religions, each with their own perception of the afterlife. Christianity's afterlife isn't more valid than any other religion out there.

Jophar-vorin : I know what

Jophar-vorin : I know what quetiapine is used for and it is not used to ease peoples fear of hell. I am sorry if you have a diagnosis that requires the use of this drug. I also know that atheism does not trigger psychosis. If you have schizophrenia/schizo-affective disorder/ bipolar depression it may be best to speak that clearly and perhaps some of us might be able to help. If you want to discuss atheism we can do that. If your religious ideations are a signal to you that it is time to seek help you might need to recognize that.

No, but it is an

No, but it is an antipsychotic? Isnt the fear of hell kind of psychotic?
No i know atheism does not trigger psychosis, i have been diagnosed with some psychotic disorder but they say it has passed.
What i kind of need to find is an insurance that the hell thing does not happen or atleast mute it. It affects my daily living which is not good.

Psychosis can be temporary.

Psychosis can be temporary. That is good that it has passed. I was raised in a home that preached fear of hell and demons. My father actually performed exorcisms in a Pentacostal church. The fear of hell and judgement is real. Hell is not. I had to fortify myself with good reading and rational discourse with nonbelievers until I had the cognitive tool kit to battle the brain washing. There are great books available which successfully rebuke the claims of those damned preachers. Learn to say "fuck them" and live without fear!

Can you list the books? I

Can you list the books? I will be going to a cabin soon and i may need some reading.

Wow. What a story you have! Good that you managed to escape!

Well first off, what you

Well first off, what do you think Hell is, and why do you think you have reason to fear it?

I dont have the weird

I dont have the weird thoughts today, thankfully.
Eternal torture = hell.
Why i fear it? I have no idea! I just get afraid of it. Like spiders. I am afraid of alot of things.

I know no one who doesn't

I know no one who doesn't have fears. It's pretty normal to have them. I'm with you on being afraid of spiders! I'm afraid of most bugs.

You're afraid of Bugs while I'm afraid of anything that has more than 4 legs (you might Exclude Jellyfishes 'cause they're kinda cute, especially the small ones)
And some fishes like Sharks, Ton-Big Sharks like the Great White Shark and Large Octopuses, I mean generally I am always afraid of the Sea when I lose sight of the Sea-bed as I always get the feeling something is gonna come up and just gnaw and maul my leg and drag me into water.
Let's not mention Spiders, I don't care if it's Big or Small, that thing is not going anywhere else out of my sight.

Do you believe that hell/eternal torture exists?

No, not while i am stable,

No, not while i am stable, only when i get 'psychotic'. I usually believe in alien invasion too then.

SkyDiver:
I had a similar fear before. It wasnt pleasant.

You shouldn't worry too much

You shouldn't worry too much about any delusions, I myself have had quite a lot of psychological "issues" but it's more of an advantage.
If you personally dislike it I have some ideas that might help.
If you are interested in understanding how to take advantage of such "problems" I can also help with that.

Scroll for strange message. Also an important reminder at the end.

Sanity is a pointless belief system, and being afraid of hell can be logical; suppose there us an afterlife and you get screwed over because you had An opposing belief, that would suck, actually that would probably cause a large tempur-tantrum!
Anyways try to think of your hobbies and things you like to ease your mind, if there is a hell then it's probably pretty amazing anyways.

but it's pointless the idea of he'll was mostly used to scare people into funding and following.
