What The Hell Are You Looking At?
By Arthur Buchanan
Have you ever wondered to your self that someone is talking to or about you? More times than not they are not, yet we all know the negative stigma that comes with are disorders and how hard they are to shake once you are branded. I mean what the hell am I a God Dam cattle?
Have you ever felt like there was a brand on your forehead, that said hey look at me I am crazy and if you did how did it make you feel? I can tell you what I think and that is this, this is the reason that I wrote this dam book, so to all those who love to brand, enter my world and take a look around you and see what it is that I am going through. Yet I bet you really won't seem to see the truth of the matter that is at hand, guess what? You got another world, SO BITE ME!
Now do I put all people in this group not really just the ones who still have this preconceived notion that the facts aren't quite true, that it may in deed be a character flaw, so sort of weakness, BITE ME! How can it be something other then the predispostioning element that is already in our genes? I mean they have found out the alcoholism runs in families and these children or at a great risk to drink like there dad or mom.
The question is this how they can except the fact that alcohol runs in the family and the jeans. Well is it so hard to believe that a mental illness can run in families and that the genes seem to skip some children and then they hit other ones in the same family, but why would the mentally ill person be looked at with some sort of character flaws, I mean BITE ME!
We have scientifically proven that a biological problem is related with certain chemicals in the brain to be missing causing chemical imbalance in the brain. Is alcoholism or heat disease real? Sometimes we figure that since your mom or dad had it that you are destine to get it also, this is not necessary true, but we should point out that if you feel that you are going to get it because your parents had it or not get it, you are right. You can have predisposition yourself just by thinking of the illness and the steps you take for or against it and guess what whether you think you can or can't, many times you will be right about that thought.
Even if you would try to avoid the dreaded death sentence of the predispostioning, try to remember that you have a chance with therapy, the chance to put an end to the vicious cycle. Who knows in the end you may just breed it out of your family and if this is to be that's great those families who seem to be labeled crazy or lost all I can say in defense of them is this they are really in another world and if you don't like it, that's ok just BITE THEM! They are in a different world than you and yours in no better or worse it just is and weather you make it good or bad that is your choice. So walk the tight rope and if you fall it's ok and if you hang on that's ok too. What isn't cool is the fact that they would still judge. You with all the greatest information just at there finger tips, the internet so before you judge me or anyone for that matter, if they are in another world that's ok, that is were they need to be at that moment in time, how you may be asking yourself? Simple because it is happening in this time and space and the fact that it is happing is the only reason we need, why because God doesn't make a mistake. Except what is happing right now in your life and give thanks for it, know that it is necessary to make the person that you need to know. It's that simple, it really is!
