Just asking, I was raised in this church but I don't go anymore for 6 years. All I have to say is that it was a very strict religion and no, it didn't cause social anxiety, the only good thing about it is that I was had to sing on stage with other kids and I wasn't even nervous. But now I worship Satan....//0-0\\ jk.

I am not myself, but I had a few people in the village I lived in were. I remember one time a bunch of kids were listening to a Eddie Murphy cassette and the one lady that was a Seventh day came marching down to the park and yanked that tape right out of the boombox and told them to go home to pray for forgiveness for listening to that. :lol

Why do you dismiss the possibility that a strict religious upbringing contributed to your anxiety?

I have family members who are SDA. It is no doubt a very strict religion and I do believe it can contribute to SA. Even it if it plays a minor role, it still can magnify the effects of SA, in terms of being socially acceptable and conforming to social norms.

I am not an not and never have been an Adventist. I do know from personal experince from being in a legalistic church that I left (that I will leave name less) that I was really stressed out. There was always a measure of performance the no one could obtain. When I went to different one that did not measure me to this yard stick than I relaxed and started enjoying life. Hope this helps.

^ Yes.

I have slight problem with older certain fanatical SDA's who are intolerant of other religions that worship on a Sunday, considered the mark of the beast. Younger SDA's don't hold this view, thank God. Also, their constant predictions of the end of times. Very depressing.

The modern commercial concept of cereal food originated in the vegetarian beliefs of the American Seventh-day Adventists, who in the 1860s formed the Western Health Reform Institute, later renamed the Battle Creek Sanitarium, in Battle Creek, Mich. The entrepreneurial possibilities of the ground, thin-baked cereal dough served to the Sanitarium's patients inspired two men, C.W. Post and W.K. Kellogg, each to found his own business.
