I wonder if a "shrink" ever goes to a "shrink", or if they consider themselves to be normal above everyone else.  :w00t:

I have to go to a "shrink" not because I'm "crazy", but because my health care provider will not prescribe anti-anxiety meds in the form of benzo's. Only anti-depressants. Their internal policy is such that only a psychiatrist can prescribe benzo's.

So, I went to one, and am now back on benzo's that work extremely well for me, and have never abused them. In fact, he is quite pleased with my dosage restraint.

I hate anti-depressants(for myself), and I've tried many types.

They do not work for me and I seem to suffer bad side-effects. Benzo's have been my life-saver, no side-effects(for me). And beer works too.

Believe it our not I have purple wizards hat with LED lights. On Samhain I wore it at drumming circle.  I really don't remember that much about that night...  But I remember the hat.

I just thought about what my shrink would have said about running around in wizards clothes.  He would have said do what makes you happy.   Then we would have had an interesting discussion about attention seeking behavior.  I wish I could find that guy, I would really truly like to thank him for all his help.

Just thought that was funny.  There's an old joke, two psychiatrists walk past each other and they both say "Hello". As they walk away from each other, both are saying to themselves, "I wonder what he meant by that?"

I know if I saw a psychiatrist and told him/her my inner thoughts, after the first visit he'd sit there rubbing his hands together, thinking, "I can keep up the payments on my Mercedes with this one."

I think psychiatrists are vulnerable though. One had a patient who thought he was Napoleon. After several visits, they both were on the floor pouring over a map of Europe.

This is a true story: a friend of mine was released from a mental institution, and had his release papers framed, hanging on a wall. He'd point to it and say, "I can prove that I'm sane, can your?"

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge.
To see reality loose your opinions.

After many years of thinking and reading so called work of experts I have found my own truth.

I feel society and most mainstream religion sells you limited beliefs to hold you back.

However I saw through this at a young age.

Well here is an example. A Shrink will say I am crazy.
But don't you think being "normal" Dress like, looking like, talking like,
and thinking like everyone else is crazy?

For example to express my freedom. I shall dress in a Wizard Robe and Hat..
everywhere I go.. YES this includes Walmart.

What would the experts say that I am nut?
But no I am actually much wiser than them.
Their fancy books and medications have no effect on me.

I am truly free.. most people don't even have the mental freedom to Dress as they choose...

What do you think? let the games begins!
The battle of wits has begun

That reminds me of a song about a mental patient .."I'd rather stay here with all the madmen, then live with all the sadmen roaming free "  

Conforming to society can kill your imagination, freedom of expression and creativity. Where would we be without out insane theories  brought to fruitation by visionary scientists who were once thought to be retarded or insane. Insanity can be a subjective term not necessarily correct.

A lot of people are called insane because they are actually non conformists.
