  • I got really sick on my 18th birthday- and my mom and her side of the family were convinced I was posessed.
    It was a virus that affects the nervous sysem (don't remember the really long name of it)- anyhow it caused me to not have good control over my hands, my head/neck (it would turn sort of up and to the side no matter how much I faught it), I couldn't form words anyone could understand, so I had to sort of scribble out what I wanted at any given time...it made me tired and doctors didn't know what it was at first... Anyhow, my mom and family about a week into it, decided that my uncle should do an excorsism. They took me to his house and he basically stood over me and spoke loudly/yelled for the demons to leave or whatever...it freaked me out and honestly, ALL I wanted was to go home and go to bed. I remained sick for about another week after this, so I'm not really sure how they explained that I wasn't better from it

  • Do I think it was really an excorsism? no. Do I think THEY thought it was...yes.

    I think people a lot of times will believe what they *want* to believe -you know what I mean? I think they wanted/needed an explanation for my illness and that is what made sense to them somehow, so they went with it

  • No. I don't believe in them really. Not in the sense we see on television or that some demon comes along and takes over the world

  • an excorcism isn't about a demon that comes along and takes over the world....

  • Nope.. I think they are a farce perpetrated by the church.

  • i just meant that from what I grew up to believe it was some demon energy or what have you taking over your body and soul and that the Roman Catholic church was the only one qualified to do it. I believe in it so I don't find it interesting enough to study.
