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

Yeah, I can see just how difficult it is today, compared to previous

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.

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

squeezed by the demands and complications of modern living. Do this do
that. Deadlines, red lights, no bonus, bad economy, computer & car
problems, etc...
