Philosophical question about mental health - August 29th 2010, 01:47 PM

Hello ok i've done the Psychotherapy and the CBT, and they worked briefly.
The Psychotherapy put me in a good mood for a couple of weeks and now im back down in ze pit.
So i guess what i want to know is, is it possible to cure someone who frankly doesn't want to be here on this world, in this life or even part of the human race? can that be cured?

this is more of a philosophical question really but its also how i feel and have felt this way for a long time.
Any theroys feel free to let me know, and i don't need any 'soft soap' about how things get better :-) they don't and as i said above if things did i wouldn't care because i don't want to be here maybe if i was back say 200 years in the past then maybe but the here and the now? nope id like my P45 please.
:-)


pain is a fabrication of the mind life is a regretable and unavoidable reality, which sucks ass big time.

If that was an essential condition to their existence, then obviously no. But the illusion that life is not worth living is quite curable yes.

Yes, it can. Feelings, desires, and thoughts can be changed. Right now you may feel this way (which I would bring up to the therapist), but that can change. Once you find something that you wish to live for then you can shift away from current thought patterns and into more positive ones.

Of course, it won't be the therapist who cures you. It will be you, yourself. A quote I like to think about in this respect is thus, "Be your own therapist but choose your advisors wisely."

Your therapists cannot change your thinking. Only you can do that. If you can change that core thought pattern then you can move forward.

Nothing in this world is unchanging: Not thoughts. Not people. Not the planet. Not the universe. Not even our understanding of the universe (see: laws of physics). Give it a go. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Their's nothing i can really add except i still want out its as simple as that i want out.
