i got your crazy

"Last month I stayed up several nights watching youtube videos that convinced me that the world as we know it was about to end, so I bought 50 pounds of wheat and a shotgun."

-said by me to my psychiatrist at last week's appointment


What about you guys? I'm sure some of you have some gems that you wished you had kept to yourself. Lets hear it.

LOL! There is nothing I have said that could top that!

Just out of curiosity - what was his reaction?

Btw, love the new family portraits!

He reminded me that when someone with a history of depression brings a gun into the house the risk of suicide goes up. He also reminded me that I need to be working on stimulus control ie: not watching videos or reading things that are going to set off my anxiety and paranoia.
Then he increased my medication :)

Angela E. Gambrel said...

Yes, getting rid of the gun might be a good idea. I also try to avoid things that will set off my anxiety.

Don't watch YouTube and stay away from WebMD! (And all related sites.) :)

the gun aside, I am always preparing for the end of the world, loads of water, first aide kits, and loads of canned and dry goods...Im cracking up picturing his reaction:)

Angela E. Gambrel said...

Please don't take this the wrong way, but every time I read this I can picture your psychiatrist and I burst out laughing!

My next question is what are you going to do with all that wheat? :)

Love you!!!

Whoa! :) Not to discount your anxiety or stress, but if someone said that to me it would be hard to keep a straight face. :) (hug) he he he. It makes me smile to picture his reaction too. :)

My second thought was that you must really like wheat. lol Annie and Em are going to be having a lot of wheat pancakes and wheat bread from now on. :)

I have never said anything that can top that but...

I did say (when I was very sick and committed to UNI for anorexia) that I don't need to eat. I could smell calories and ingest them by breathing. I promised Dr. Joy that I would smell some meat for her (which was a very strong and compromising gesture for me at the time- so she would get off my back.) Next thing I knew, I was in an ambulance headed for UNI...
