Is it ever okay to lie?





Is it ever okay to lie? Before you answer that question, please think about it for a while because that particular question isn't always, as easy as, answering yes or no. It seems throughout my entire adult life, especially since I was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia, the need to outright lie or lie by omission has been my only option, if I wanted to be treated as someone that shouldn't be feared. I know what you're thinking, at least some of you out there are judging me already. "It's never a good idea to lie" or "You need to be honest with people" are just some of the thoughts crossing the minds of people who are taking their time to read this blog. Okay, I admit that lying in general is wrong and honesty is certainly always the best policy, but there are always exceptions. Of course, I'm not talking about the so-called little white lies everyone tells each day without giving much thought or consideration. I'm writing about lying and telling people that there isn't anything wrong with me. You see, in the beginning I was open and honest about my condition but doing so made everyone nervous and afraid. Some people actually believe when I tell them that I have Paranoid Schizophrenia, I'll physically hurt them. Still, others believe my condition means that I suffer from multiple personalities. Like I wrote once before, you hear the term "Paranoid Schizophrenia" and think mass shooter or lone gunman. I'm not someone that should be feared, if anything, I just need a little compassion. Life isn't easy for me and I struggle each day. I constantly worry about my future and I feel so alone. So, in the past I've had to lie several times and did my best to keep my condition a secret. It was the only way I was able to make a friend or have a relationship with a woman. I felt bad about lying to people but the loneliness was so unbearable. I know that isn't any excuse but it's the only one I have. In the end, I'm alone again and I have no family or friends. So, like I asked from the start, is it ever okay to lie?

"Project Exclamation Point!" Founded October 14, 2015...


Well, they say that change begins with you, and I'm really hoping that's true. However, I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel or find a cure for cancer. My hope is that I bring awareness to mental illness, in my particular Paranoid Schizophrenia, with my simple idea, "Project Exclamation Point!" Most people have heard of, "Project Semicolon" and their mission statement: Dedicated to presenting hope and love for those who are struggling with mental illness, suicide, addiction, and self-injury. Project Semicolon exist to encourage, love, and inspire. However, my idea is not only to bring awareness to Paranoid Schizophrenia and various mental illnesses, but to give a voice to people who have none. Also, I want the use of an exclamation point, instead of a semicolon, because I want to show the urgency we need, in order to tackle and treat mental illness. Today, more than ever, people with mental illness are getting nothing but bad press and it's really disheartening because the majority of individuals who suffer from mental illness aren't violent at all. Their only concern is getting through the day and not be treated as outcast by an unsympathetic public. Also, there is a very misinformed populace when it comes to the true nature of various mental illnesses. For instance, I suffer from a sometimes very debilitating illness called Paranoid Schizophrenia but sadly, if you ask someone on the street what that means, they'll say, "That means you're crazy" or "Doesn't that mean you have multiple personalities?" How sad that people think the worse of people who suffer in silence but when a mass shooting, like the one at Umpqua Community College takes place, the call to get guns out of the hands of crazy people gets shouted from every rooftop. I wrote about how I feel the other day when it comes to the perception that the public has when it comes to the tragic mass killings taking place in our country. So, my idea for change is this, "Project Exclamation Point!"


PROJECT EXCLAMATION POINT

Mission Statement: A non profit organization, myself, that wants to bring not only awareness, but spread the word that people with various mental illnesses need to be heard and given a voice. We, as a group, will no longer be marginalized or become the inevitable scapegoat for the numerous ills that plague today's society.

I don't want to feel lost anymore.


It isn't that I don't believe things can change for the better, it's just that I have this fear it won't happen for me. I get lost when all my thoughts consume me and the days turn into weeks. Life becomes a blur and I have trouble recalling events or certain conversations. This irritates me a great deal because I don't enjoy being called a liar and the thought of forgetting scares me to death. I try my best to hold on to my fleeting memories, especially those that involve my son because to lose thoughts would devastating. Unfortunately, when I think about it for awhile, how can I remember what I lost? Will my son grow up looking at me as some empty vessel of confused thoughts? Will I be someone that he will feels sorry for, instead of someone that he admires? It's my hope that someone will remind him how hard I'm trying to get back what I've lost, if I can't be the one to tell him myself.

Instead of Project Semicolon, how about Project Exclamation Point!


Project semicolon was supposedly created to give hope and love to people who suffer from depression, suicide, addiction and self injury. A semicolon because it represents that ones life or their story isn't over. What punctuation mark represents people who suffer from mental illness, like Paranoid Schizophrenia? Maybe a exclamation point is fitting because people who suffer from debilitating mental illness need help! Yes, we need help! How about project Exclamation Point?! We can be a group of people who believe that we need to scream from the roof tops and shout with a loud voice, just in order to be heard. Otherwise, we are destined to be marginalized and kept from public view. Will this make the world better a better place for people who suffer from the various mental illnesses out there? Probably not, but it will give us something we don't have...a voice.

I'm not responsible for the mass shooting that took place, in Oregon, at Umpqua Community College.




So, I turn on my television this past week and learned of an another school shooting that tragically took the lives of several people at a small Oregon college. I stared at the screen for hours on end, as the horror of the days events were replayed, as well as, analyzed by various news organizations. President Obama made another call for stricter gun laws, while second amendment enthusiast felt he was politicizing the tragedy. What did I wait for? I'm not going to be coy or refrain from showing my disgust on so many levels for what eventually takes place after such a tragic event. In the end, the mantra is, "We need to take the guns away from the crazy people." When it seems like the whole entire country is adopting a more feel good attitude toward gender identity and the rights of gay individuals, they continually throw people that suffer from mental illness under the bus. Why is that? The answer isn't difficult to explain, and it sadly shows how far The United States lags behind when it comes to equal rights for all. I have suffered from mental illness for the majority of my life, and I have never had the impulse to buy a gun, or kill people indiscriminately but you wouldn't think that by watching the various news media outlets this past week. Us, "Crazy People" need to be identified and put on some a list that should displayed in every town square in The United States. We should be feared and outed by friends and family, in order to prevent future mass shootings...it's the only way! The plight of most mentally ill people is difficult enough but what am I to think when I hear a well respected politician, such as, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee say, "Gun laws won't stop crazies," or similar quotes coming from people with influence and various positions of power? I'm left wondering if they really understand that lumping all people who suffer from mental illness together can led to dangerous consequences? I fear that in the end, this way of thinking will cause people with mental illness to hide in the shadows or not seek medical treatment because of the fear, and subsequent backlash from a society looking for a scapegoat. I'm quite aware that there are dangerous people in our society but a well informed public shouldn't be mislead into believing that all these mass shootings are done by people seeking help with a diseases that doesn't discriminate, like mental illness. Most people who suffer from mental health problems do their best, and sadly it's a difficult life for a lot of them. They can be your friend, family member, or next door neighbor, but most of all they should never be labeled as, "Crazy." So, it is my dream that the shunning of today's mentally ill comes to an end immediately, and we as a country find solutions that don't involve the chastising of more innocent victims.
