Discussion to Marianne Williamson

August 14, 2019

Marianne Williamson is a candidate for U.S. President in 2020, and someone whose books I’d better start reading if there are any left at the library even as I wait for Buffy the Vampire Slayer Volume 1. I have to correct her on some stuff though because as a person with a mental illness or three, as has been talked about on my blog, I need my medication. Antidepressants do help with my OCD a lot. OCD can be a nightmare because of the repetitive thoughts without end. I’m also the sort of person who gets vaccinated against the flu every year because the flu could wipe me out for months after.

The pain in my arm is worth the vaccine, because the flu sucks. It just does, for a type 1 diabetic who infuses, no insulin left, thanks. I’d rather not be put out of commission too long. I have stuff I need to get done in my life like writing my gigantic list of book ideas. See, I also want to run for President in like my 60s when I’ve been a judge for a while. I have certain things I want to do with my life, but first there is the matter of becoming a television producer since I have decided to get an A.A. in film and television from De Anza so I can get enough graduate school-worthy credits. Boy do I ever need to see a counselor.

See, as President, you will have to deal with the fact that science needs funding. I want a medical scientist degree among other things. Vaccines are awesome, as I got my adult MMR and tried to call out the anti-vaxxers on my page. Autism, my dear, is neurobiological, because it is passed down from the genes. I am just your average, neurotypical schizoaffective with multiple kinds of anxiety disorders. See, I want to become a psychiatrist and other mental health professional. I’ve spent years trying to treat my own anxiety, to manage it so that it doesn’t control me, so that I can function. Meds help a lot. So don’t knock me for taking my medication, because in my case, I’m a rapid cycler.

What that means is simply put: I have mood swings that change in seconds if I don’t take my medication, which would never happen. I have pediatric onset schizoaffective, from birth. My anxiety makes me wonder what my untreated family does with their symptoms aside from stuffing it, and feeding it with booze. Booze is a half-assed way of controlling it. I managed to quit drinking in 2010 with the help of a therapist. My caffeine didn’t stop until this year since I was still doing chocolate in milk. Now that my PK is set off by having chocolate as I’ve found, I have to control myself with how much chocolate I have.

I assume most people who understand psychic development know that PK refers to psychokinesis. I mean that stuff causes me real physical pain so I have to be careful. I have to learn how to demonstrate it without undergoing extreme emotional stress. It causes me pain. So I have learned to shut it off before I change my infusion set with causing myself some pain. I stuck myself with an infusion needle before I changed it once, and it didn’t bend. This is how that chance of a discovery happened as all good science is based on a theory. I can’t get worked up about changing my infusion set, which is why I’m relived I have meds because you are reading a piece from someone who didn’t take medication for like 20 years. I guess alcohol is cheaper than school? Lol.

Anyway though, I’m just saying, if you want to relate to disabled people better as part of your campaign, know that for some of us, there is no escaping medication. I find it bizarre that some people refuse to take medication if they are a rapid cycler, only because they feel they are fine using other substances, since some prefer marijuana. I know I need my medication. I can’t function without it. Toodles.
