Musings of a Madman
earth is hell .. it only gets better
it may also help to stop trying to defend these obvious political fucking idiots .. Christ, the whole world has turned against these assholes in the current administration .. this Scooter Libby pardon is the last nail in their coffin .. even the members of their own party are running for the hills over this one ..
What the hell does politics have to do with what I said?
.. oh .. 'condition' .. didn't notice that .. not sure what that means .. if its refering to being 'bi-polar', I'm not sure if I believe in that any more than the fact that heartburn is now classified as 'acid reflux disease', or worse yet, this 'restless leg syndrome' bullshit .. seems to me these kinds of things are very easily overcome with a little bit of effort .. the medical profession likes to throw everything possible into the 'disease' catagory so they can justify selling you pills for it .. its all about the money .. and its all bullshit ..I mentioned a couple of tape programs in another post a while back that are pretty effective at keeping peoples lives on the right track .. you ought to check out Tony Robbins's website if you really want to fix things for yourself .. allot of his stuff is really good .. I've used his Personal Power Program for over 15 years now, and have overcome allot of adversity, thanks in part to some of his advice .. its pretty easy to straighten things out .. most of the time its just a matter of deciding to do so and acting on it ..As for the crack smoking, I fully understand the enticement of it .. I believe a crack high is probably about the most pleasure a drug can bring to your head .. but the things I mentioned in your other post really help me to stay away from it .. believe me, I know how hard it is .. nothing else seems as good as the pleasure of cocaine .. I just personally have learned to enjoy my life without feeling the need for it .. even though being straight is no where near as pleasurable in the head as a crack cocaine high. The biggest worry about it with me is getting caught ... they are stiff as hell with the manditory 5 years in jail for 1st offenders .. that would really fuck me up if that happened to me .. I'd never get an engineering job again, and worst of all, I would get no respect again out of anyone who found out .. I think the Tony Robbins stuff is worth checking out, or something else like it .. just a little friendly advice that you don't need to listen to if you don't want to ..
Believe me, bipolar depression is real and something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. The human brain is very complex and if self-help worked for everybody, it would put Tony Robbins and his contemporaries out of business.
Perhaps .. I did happen to catch the ER episodes where Sally Fields played Abby's mother, and she was bi-polar .. she seemed to act it out well .. but I still believe that tough people can cowboy up and overcome things like that if they really tried .. I also heard medication for depression is the largest selling of the drugs in the country right now .. that really says allot for our general morale nationwide, doesn't it .. maybe we'll see some halfway descent leadership in this country someday .. I still maintain though that the medical profession is more interested in making pill customers that they are in helping people .. if they really wanted to help people, they would never have bribed lawmakers to make the real remedy's for medical problems against the law, or taken the classes out of medical school that would have taught doctor's how to really help you .. 5 or 10 years from now, you'll still be taking pills and no better off than you are today (maybe even worse, and taking more pills), and 5 years from now, the medical industry will have made a shitload of money by selling you a shitload of pills .. I don't think I could go that route .. in part since I would never stand for being put down about a so-called "medical condition" by people all the time for the rest of my life .. if you're just going to resign to "bi-polar depression", then it may be wise to learn not to complain about the inevitable disrespect .. as i'm sure you know .. this is a cruel world
I don't complain about the "disrespect" from others about having bipolar, only the misunderstanding of said problem. I can't control how others perceive mental illness. I just wish they would educate themselves before passing judgment. I understand many have differing opinions. Until I was faced with illness, I was one of the people who thought it was a crutch that some relied on for sympathy and handouts from the government. I have experienced firsthand that this is always not so.
If I were still on medication, which I am not, I would rather my insurance pay for legitimate pills than pay out-of-pocket to a dope dealer for illegal drugs. I took antidepressants for quite some time and they did help. I gave them up when I felt I no longer needed them. I was told by therapists that medication should be used only until a person has reached a stage when they can function most of the time on their own. So I don't believe it's a big conspiracy to get everyone dependent for life.
