Pagan News and Views Since 1998

Merry Meet, everyone, though on my end, it's not so merry.

I've been feeling really discouraged lately. My brain disorder is making my life horrible right about now, and I'm on hold with a psychiatrist who may or may not actually try to help me by prescribing medicine. I hate meds, but they work, even though some of them have weird side-effects. I'm no stranger to the world of meds.

Also, it's beginning to dawn on me that my family is, one way or another, going to find out that I am a Wiccan. This wouldn't be so bad, if it weren't for the fact that my paternal family and my stepmother's family are all close-minded weirdos (sorry to say it, I love them, but they're judgmental as heck) and my maternal family is, well, also close-minded and racist. I love my family, of course, but they're just unaccepting of other people who stray too far from what they deem "normal." My father and my stepmother have a child, my half-sister. I'm afraid that if my Southern stepmother finds out I'm Wiccan, she won't let me see my sister that much. It could be something she would do, unfortunately. My mother insists on driving to my house and dragging me to church almost every Sunday, where people look at me odd because I never take off my pentacle necklace (in my opinion, if they don't like it, they don't have to look).

I've been trying to find all my altar items for what feels like ages, though it's only been a few months, and I can't seem to find all the right materials.

All in all, I've just been feeling really down and discouraged. Sorry to have to rant to you all, but I just need a quick outlet. I'd love it if someone could give me advice on what to do, especially about my family thing.

Oh, by the way, is anyone else here making the drive to Salem for Samhain? I know I am - it's a looong way, but it'll be worth it. I've always wanted to see it.

Blessed Be,
~Beyond

I had that problem too. Especially with my mom at first, and I wasn't sure how the rest of my family would react. When I finally told everyone, they all ended up being very supportive and I felt like a huge weight had been lifted. Even if your family doesn't support you, always follow your heart. If you're doing what you believe to be right, honest, and good, then I don't think you'll ever really be wrong. I sincerely hope that what ever you decide, you will do what is right for you. Many blessings to you!

Beyond, I hope that you have a copy of "The Pill Book," which can be picked up in most drug stores and bookstores. It can help you if you have any questions about your meds, because the pharmacy doesn't print out everything about a drug. I just got a new one; my last one was 5 years old. I have to take several meds for different ailments and am always careful to read up on precautions, and food and drug interactions. It may not mean much, but I hope that you feel better. Many Blessings,

Crescent

People think pn/wn think we're bad, evil, looking to cast spells and corrupt the mind of children and them as well, or we're just goijg to be sitting there talking to them and cast a spell in our heads by thinking of a word.
I wrote a blog that dealt somewhat with this same subject with my mom.
I haven't exactly come out of the broom closet fully yet, thats not easy to do. People can be very guarded about this, they fear it. We fear what we don't undertand.
But with you there is a double taboo with your stepmom by her being southern, I have the feeling she comes from the bible belt. (We're moving to Alabama next year) aftger my bf retires, so we can take care of his mom and trust me, I am not telling her my choice of religon,
My best friend who has been saved sometime in the last few years, (they're my extended family. Both her and mom got saved after mom and dennis divorced and I know Jen knows aobut my religon but I don't know if her mom does, but she didn't say anything about it.
the other day I was in the wiccan online community.com and my bfs son asked me when I got into wiccan and stuff and I chickened out and said it was just research. Being open about my faith and beliefs are gong to be a big deal and up until then I dind't know what I was or who i WAS

Things always find a way of worfking out in the end. Doesn't everything come out in the wash? The negative will make you appreaciate what you have in your life, the stuff that you didn't may attned to.
Think of it this way,, my partents both before I was 30 yrs old, Both chroic and terminal side effects of drinking, my sister and I don't talk l alot last time I did or shouldn't have seen saqid to me, pleding this her mom,
