And it isn't as fun for the mentally ill today. I mean, you don't get to have those electric shocks from the mid 1900s. Or, even better, you aren't considered witches in early Salem and burned at the stake. And, of course, there are those possessed souls in the Bible, who were allowed to run wild in the wilderness, and eat with the animals (a la Nebuchadnezzar).
Yeah, I can see just how difficult it is today, compared to previous eras. ;-) I do understand there still is much mental illness out there and it needs treating. I'm glad for those who can live rather normal lives with medicine, etc. It is a different world today, because we keep the mentally ill at home, rather than locking them up for years. For some people, it is still a difficult topic, but I think more and more people are learning to handle it as a long term medical issue, rather than as a devil possession. K'aya K'ama, Gerald/gary Smith gszion1 @juno.com http://www .geocities.com/rameumptom/index.html "No one is as hopelessly enslaved as the person who thinks he's free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Paul: Yep. I'm a big goof and shoot my mouth off all the time and tell people about my problems to members of the ward. And in return, they tell me a little bit about their problems. A lot of people are on meds and that is no exaggeration. My elders quorum president is on them too and so is the bishop's wife. The list goes on and on. This crazy world we live in is driving people nuts. It's complicated, fast paced, demanding, and financially more difficult to pilot then it has ever been. We are being squeezed by the demands and complications of modern living. Do this do that. Deadlines, red lights, no bonus, bad economy, computer & car problems, etc... ________________________________________________________________ Sign Up for Juno Platinum Internet Access Today Only $9.95 per month!
