i just read this thread. WOW!!!!! there was a discussion similar to this about 6 months (i think) ago. the more things change the more they stay the same.
remember, the last time the usa combined religion with politics we had the salem witch burnings (i know, it wasn't the usa then). i'm not accusing religion of anything. i am saying that some people read the new testament and see satan in eerything, manefesting himself in strange forms of mental illnes such as schizophrenia and bp. or, as someone else said on this thread, maybe it's a power trip for some people. i don't know its cause, i just recognise the hurt, suffering, and angst that ignorance causes.
as far as bein treaterd like a simpleton, i just got stupid funny. i was in the er and, after reading my list of meds, the nurse asked what the lithium was for. i told her bp. she then, as then started speaking very slowly and distinctly, so i started speaking to her in german. she LOOKED at me. i told her that because she was being so precice in her use of english that perhaps she wasn't a native speaker and that i was just offering her the alternative of german. she got red faced and left. the next nurse and i had no problems. i was really a c*** with that first nurse, but she p****d me off.
