    I have a friend who acts out in extremely violent ways, he's hospitalized people. He claims that he's losing his grip on reality, he suffers from mood swings. He's extremely sensitive to bad things happening in the world. He says he needs someone to love and to love him too. He says he cries when he's alone. I really think he's losing his mind. What can I do to help him? is there anything I CAN do?

    The very first thing to do when dealing with psychological problems, is to get real - own up to yourself.

    So the first question needing an answer is - honestly now; how long have you had the problem to which you refer?

    I'm actually serious, it's not me, it's my friend. And it's scary as fuck.

    Well I certainly agree that it is scary, but ahem........... you have already explained that this condition has to do with yourself in quite a few posts - earlier in your membership. Remember your confession of eccentricity and killing a man? So come now.........

    Meditation.
    It doesn't matter if it's Christian or Buddhist or something else, but join a group with a decent teacher, and practice regularly. Meditation helps a person to observe what they are doing or thinking objectively - "Hm, I'm feeling anger now - that's interesting." It should help to maintain calmness.

    This is a big step. As I said before, feeling uncomfortable about violence is healthy, so don't be afraid of it. Listen to it; welcome it. One of my children has similar issues.

    1. To me, there's two major categories of violence. One is spontaneous, out-of-the-blue violence. The other is stewing, fuming, building, plotting violence. Which one is it?

    2. Another dimension of violence that I see involves the victims, and this occurs along a spectrum. Do you honestly pound on anyone and everyone who deserves it (that is, whether they're tougher or wimpier than you doesn't matter)? Or do you only pound on the people you know you can whip? Or do you have anger toward people you can't whip and then act out on people who don't really deserve it?

    3. Do your victims seem to fall into a certain class of person (that is, race, gender, age, IQ, etc)?

    4. Do the "offenses" that trigger the violent seem to fall into a certain class (that is, looks, remarks, gestures, physical acts, touching, etc)?

    5. How soon after the violence does it frighten you? (seconds, minutes, hours, or days)

    6. What feelings seem to trigger the violence? Can you find them here?

    7. What are your and your siblings' ages and gender?

    8. Describe your father.
