The artwork—that’s an area that didn’t take off as much as I thought it would. A sizeable percentage of those probably haven’t been on the site for a while. The big stat is the amount of marriages that I’ve had with the site. I think professionals in the field discount the importance of relationships. I don’t think they work nearly as well as they advertise them to. Robert Whitaker shows that you need drugs in the short term to medicate somebody and bring them back to reality and stuff, but the long-term use of these things creates chronic conditions. Do you think that people with mental illnesses can only have a true bond with someone else who has a mental illness? ’ and I was like, ‘Wow, I guess there are people out there who are understanding.’ Are you still together? But you wouldn’t say it was because of your mental illness?
There are a lot of talented people with mental illness that have great creative potential and I thought that would be an important way to let people connect and share on that level. I do occasional purges to get rid of older profiles. And these are only the ones that I’ve been told of, but there’s been more than 30. No, but I kinda’ thought in the back of my mind that if I’m with a woman who’s experienced similar things I can talk about it freely whenever I want.
I can tell you a lot of people are really comforted by the fact that they can send a message to a girl: ‘Hey, I really liked your profile.
I’m bipolar, too.’ You cannot do that, sidle up to someone at a bar and say, ‘Hey I have schizoaffective disorder.’ That doesn’t work.
I kind of felt like I had graduated to this specific little world of people that had mental illness. A lot of it was a fear of rejection, but a lot of it was this negative self-image thing that people without mental illness wouldn’t want to have anything to do with me. ” and I said, “No, I’m not.” They put me in an ambulance and I went to a hospital. And then I got to a hospital and it started to sink in that like, this is awful. Every once in awhile I get, “I have autism” or “My daughter has this, do they qualify?
I didn’t have much of a love life to speak of for quite some time. I ran through a stoplight and a cop pulled me over and he said, “Are you alright sir? I thought I was the most important person on earth, that all the newspapers were gonna write my story and everything, Peter Jennings would be talking about me at on the evening news and stuff.
There are people that have been on there for years and they use it as a supportive network, going back and forth, meeting up in the chat room. * * * Rebecca White is Narratively’s Director of Operations and a Contributing Editor.
Here’s a help line if you need it.’ 30 marriages is very impressive. They’ve reached a point where they might connect with somebody and that’s good enough.It’s been ten years since James Leftwich first created No Longer Lonely, a dating website exclusively for people with mental illnesses. No Longer Lonely has chat rooms, forums, and places for people to post their art. I did model it after the major dating sites, but I added certain categories too, like housing options for Section 8 or ‘I live with my parents’ or ‘I live in a halfway house.’ I thought it was important to have a category for ‘Do you own your own transportation? I’ve had very few people that come on there as a joke or prey on the users, at least that I know of. Do you mind saying what you’ve been diagnosed with? After I was hospitalized, I went to a halfway kind of house. It’s kind of like in prison, where the child molesters are this and the rapists are that and the murderers are that. I don’t want to hang out with him.” That was the main thing of the site, to defeat the stigmas. Connect with people that are experiencing the same thing as you.’ I think that’s equally as important as all those other things.
