          I've listened to John Dehlin for years, and I'm absolutely gobsmacked that the Mormon Church is putting him on trial for apostasy [mobile.nytimes.com].

            @matigo I seem to recall that Identi.ca was based in Montreal. That's one...

              @caycepollard Kudos to you for being open about it. It helps others to understand, and can encourage those who suffer to seek help. @skoll @larand

                    @caycepollard Understood. It's frightening, but treatable, and there is help out there. @skoll @larand

                      @caycepollard Mental illness covers everything from mildly depressed people to homicidal psychopaths. It's the dramatic stuff that makes the headlines. @skoll @larand

                        @caycepollard Most people haven't had much exposure to the field. I hadn't, before I met my wife. She sort of specializes in the really difficult cases, people with severe and often violent disorders. @skoll @larand

                          @caycepollard Deep or not, it's serious and worth treating. There are a lot of people in the field who care deeply about their patients. You'll find one. 😊 @skoll @larand

                              @caycepollard @skoll That's horrible. Where in the world are you? Most local psychological associations have referral services, and can be very helpful.

                                @caycepollard @skoll Just saw this thread. Sorry you're having such a hard time. I'm married to a psychologist--hang in there and find one that you like. Don't settle for anything less.
