Subject: Wake up call for UBF members
In reply to: Busy Day 's message, "Recent death?" on 01:07:10 02/24/05 Thu

I hope this will serve as a wake-up call to the many UBF members who suffer mental illness who UBF is driving to insanity.

If you are in UBF, and you have experienced disturbing emotions, or unusual things happening in your mind, you must take it seriously.

You must do two things. One - notify UBF that you are terminating your membership with them immediately. It has been demonstrated in the past that UBF is not interested in helping people with mental illness. Two - seek mental health care immediately. Find a psychotherapist and psychiatrist in your area. Don't worry if they are Christian or not. I have dealt with dozens of mental health professionals and none of them expressed anything negative about being Christian. If you are having thoughts of suicide, stop thinking and go to the nearest emergency room.

How can I say this to you? Because I have had severe mental illness, both before, during and after my UBF experience. I have spent time in psychiatric hospitalization. But mental illness hasn't broken me. I am active at my church, I work a part time job, I volunteer. I am on the road to living the quality of life that God meant for me. None of this would have happened had I not made the decision to enter treatment and follow through with it persistently.

Hope this might be of use to someone.
