* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Schizophrenia, or shamanism?
« on: November 27, 2019, 05:16:42 pm »
I decided to post this here instead of one of the news forums because I thought the "shelf life" would be more appropriate in a forum devoted to chronic illness and because the subject is something that the doctors have tagged me with, as well. But I have no objection if it is moved into another area. An interesting take from another perspective:

A Mental Disease by Any Other Name:
For Frank Russell, reinterpreting his schizophrenia as shamanism helped his symptoms.


Fair Use quote:
Quote
Dick and his son tried a variety of treatments over 15 years, some more effective than others. Then, unexpectedly, the pair turned in a very different direction, beginning a journey that Dick now likens to a “torch-lit passageway through a long dark tunnel.” By sharing his story, he hopes to help others find this passageway—but he’s aware some of it sounds crazy. For instance: He now believes Frank might be a shaman.
