Signs and Symbols of Madness Everywhere

Which are Routinely “Overlooked”

Do you ever wonder why interventions are NOT performed on “As Yet To Be Labelled” individuals who seem to think and talk so much like we officially labelled Loons?  Well, me too. Let's all take a closer look here shall we? Conversely, Do Labeled People ever get Better?

Scenes from Reality

Two Female Assessors on a Bus

"I think she thinks those two are talking about her."

"Most likely....they ALL think everything is about them..."

(Golly...I wonder if these two people, who actually don't know me at ALL, know one of my neighbours who has said almost the same thing to one of the other "covert" operators while five feet away from me?????)

In any case, I want to point out all the obvious information in this little transaction among my superiors on buses, as I have learned that if I do NOT, despite the fact that I know attempting to point out the bloody obvious COULD result in more "help' for these "paranoid delusions" of mine, this will remain unseen to pretty much everyone , who remain focused on me, and my perceptions/reactions, as the self contained problem. For it must not be about those "others." To claim it is, would be against the dysfunctional rules.

Now let's replay the scene:

The "two" which the third party assessor was talking about, was a pair of regulars who live in my neighborhood, the female half of which is never at a loss for something to say about those she complains about. On this day, she leaned into her mate, presumably to say something to him but looked more like she was going to lick his neck. Several of us glanced in that direction, including the pair of women sitting directly across from them.

The one more facing toward me, saw me look there also and found it to be an opportunity to do a bus passenger assessment. These are very common and I do not want you to think, I think, I am at all unique as a "defective" human, being analyzed and assessed by pretty much anyone.

Now for those of you on the RECEIVING end of this group crap, there are a couple of things you have probably had difficulty "making sense" of in this kind of scene, especially when "having trouble making sense of 'things'" gets transformed into a self contained "symptom" of YOURS. So I will spell this out in relation to this scene out of my own experience.

Your inability to make sense of the senseless may well be a good thing as it means you have not been as well conned by the paradigm /structure of group dysfunction. So here is what was really going on on my own experience above:

The first assessor has decided she knows what I am thinking.

(are you laughing for no reason yet, labeled people?)

In reality of course, those were not MY thoughts. Those were HER thoughts, which she is attributing to me, even though she in fact, does not know me at ALL. She is, in fact, (hold your sides..) a "stranger to me" although I have witnessed some of her previous performances on and around buses.

The woman she was making the comments to, ABOUT me, as I sat looking at them from about 8 feet away, turned and looked right at me, while of course agreeing with the primary assessor of inferiors. (what a great bonding session huh?)

Now, beside the fact that these two are (yuk, yuk) "fabricating" my reality for me, as strangers to me, apparently by use of their talent for mind reading....(try to contain yourselves now) the part most of us miss, that which we can not make sense of, while witnessing this nonsense, is the fact that most of the time, these idiots HAVE NO IDEA, that "we" who are the "subjects" of their mindless assessments and evaluation sessions can see them, and hear them, acting out like jackasses. Seriously. They don't know they are audible and visible from a few feet away, to those they define as their inferiors.

You can't make sense of that because sense has nothing to do with it. It is about the self delusion of the "superior" ones who NEED to assign others the role of their inferiors so that they can FEEL better about themselves.

Psychiatrists also know that such scenes as we describe them make no sense. But rather that see the senselessness of the dysfunctional masses projecting their own errors onto scapegoats, they TOO deny this is reality and proclaim it, as often as not, to be the "hallucinated conversations" and "paranoid delusions" of those on the receiving end of the group horseshit.

That is how the professionals found a way to make "sense" of the senseless. They created an alternate reality in which the masses are sane because they are in agreement together that their own nonsensical acting out is norma,l and not understood by those who are "not like us."

Try not to laugh, for as you know if you are laughing and the superior people do not see any reason for you to BE laughing, then that must mean there IS no reason, and you are laughing for no reason, which is another "symptom" of yours, proving how right (and "normal" ) they are.

So just share this one "in secret" (like they do ) among other labeled folk, and remember, you are not ALLOWED to see, or to hear, the superior ones acting out their own mind reading talents, projections and ongoing hunt for "hidden" meaning, as doing so will ruin all their "fun" and their delusions of grandeur as well... the poor things won't know who they ARE if they can't think of themselves as superior to defective little you.

Some of us wonder if this isn't a chemical imbalance in their brains.. as it often seems to us that there must be SOMETHING really wrong with their brains if they can't see us, seeing and hearing them, from a few feet away........hhhmmmmmm....


Riddle: what's the difference between being in ANY kind of a relationship with someone and being in any kind of a relationship ABOUT someone?

Answer: in the first case you are actually in a relationship and in the second case, you aren't.

Unlike Myself, Most of You are Very Normal

by Patricia Lefave, Monophrenic

One of my readers was telling me that he had been contacted by a professional to participate in a conference about the 'stigma' of mental illness. My reader then discovered that the professional was not really interested in hearing what was being said, just as inside the bio psychiatric system he had not seen any interest in his point of view after the first few minutes when a diagnosis was reached. In part, my answer to his experience included this and I thought I would post it here as I have heard it so frequently.

What 'stigma' means to 'them' and what it means to us is not the same thing. "They" want to get rid of the ''stigma" of 'mental illness' by training the public to become even MORE deaf to what we 'claim' happened to us involving other people, by strenuously promoting the idea that our CLAIMS are just a manifestation of a bio chemical illness 'just like diabetes.'

See the difference? We on
BOTH sides of the meaning admit to the ongoing existence of a 'stigma,' but the understanding of the actual cause of that is completely different. So, while we are using the same WORD, we do not mean the same thing, and 'OUR' side of our own experience is not invited to 'debate' it with the 'experts.' This extreme imbalance (ironically) of POWER and control is what is keeping this going.

It creates a tautological argument that has already been 'won' by the 'experts'
BEFORE our experience of it has even begun. It is also doing a damned fine job of enabling and supporting abusers who want to believe THEY represent all this is 'normal' in the world and they are therefore 'justified' in their abuse of others since we 'others' are 'abnormal.' This is especially true if the abuse is psycho-spiritual/verbal in nature as we can’t parade our 'bruises' or 'injury' in a concrete way.

 It is all about the psycho-politics.
