Good To Know

So apparently when you're talking to a friend and make an innocent suggestion, like "maybe you should consider some psychotropic medication" and she says, "Yes, but won't it affect my real personality so that I won't really be me?" and you say, "I wouldn't be too worried about that if I were you", it gets filed under "obnoxious" rather than "helpful reassurance".

That's hilarious!

Oh, shit. If I get what you're saying, does that mean I need psychotropic drugs?

Who said that, anyway?

Sure it's helpful reassurance!! Better living through modern day drugs! She must understand that! Better drugs, better her! Maybe you should get all Dr. Phil on her and say.."How's your 'real' personality workin' for you, huh?"
LMAO!! Lisa

Yeah ... I would actually take that as 'helpful reassurance' ... it's always helpful to KNOW one is spending a bit of time in crazytown.

Oh my. If you were my friend I would abuse your blunt honesty all the time and unleash you on people that need a big healthy dose of reality.

Is alcohol a pyschotropic drug?

Really, all we are is a very complex set of chemicals combined, so what's the big deal? Sheesh..

I'm sure she took it to mean "you're annoying but since I'm your friend still, it can't be THAT bad."

Priceless... but I feel for you. I have a tendency to cross that line myself. I heard it put once as "honesty undiluted by tact" :o)

Thanks for the nifty little link. I now know what "psychotropic" means.
That puts me in immediate danger of blurting it to somebody. So thanks for the tip, also.

Even our closest friends can't be truthful 99% of the time; and just look where it gets you to be in that 99%!

i, for one, think it's lovely that you and daughter are such good "friends." and i'm certain that as she matures, she will come to appreciate your honesty and wisdom.
