My wife and I for the past three months have been caring for a teenage girl who was abused by her parents. She stole a car to get away, and living in prison was a welcome relief for her. She was in prison for four years, and the state was going to release her, but she would not go back home.
A co-worker teacher that my wife knows told us the situation, and we agreed o help the girl get back on her feet.
Well, she dealt with abuse from all aspects 😔, and is pretty messed up in the head from all of that.
but by being in our home, she was safe and was learning how to deal with her problems. But over the past two months she started hearing voices, they were telling her how worthless she was.
enter social workers, psychologists, and therapists. It seems that voices are caused from past abuse, and it is a very real mental condition that is being treated now by drugs.
i was thinking last night that if we were still witnesses, she probably would have been asked to leave, based on the religions view of voices. Or else she needed a bible study.
I find it amazing how things that the witnesses are terrified by, can actually be a mental cry for help.
i hang my head in total shame for treating people years ago like they were possessed by demons, when in reality they just needed a listening ear and medical help.
