You are very kind.

I am feeling very low this evening, and you lifted my spirits ...

The winds are brutally cold outside.  I saved the png image to the pictures folder. 

It's difficult not to feel as though I have already gone insane.  With humility I try to learn as much as I can with current technologies, hoping that it will all gel together for me.

Life is a miserable affair ... and so I hide from the harsh reality outdoors.

Remember, evolution is suicide because eventually we realize that life is stupid and pointless.

No matter what anyone says or thinks about Schopenhauer or Trudell, and as different as those two men might appear, when I sleep, I can only wish to emulate them both.

Thank you Holden Caulfield, Henry Fool, Max Cohen, and especially Arthur Schopenhauer and John Trudell.

Thank you HT.

On second thought, I think I better report there Friday morning just so as not give them reason to hang me.  I have to get closure (and some kind of document (proof) of my official release).

Should they try any funny business, then I will announce my protest so they understand what's going on when I do not show up Monday morning.   >:(

I am sorry about this kafkaesque escapade but I cannot say I did not see it coming.
I knew they would do something like that.They always do.Liggoti hides from horror in horror.I find hope in  "No-Hope Land."

I have to stand up for myself.  I see clearly that this individual gets some kind of morbid pleasure in having me at her mercy.  She just has to complete the process. 

I will not be bringing any math texts today ... just the Schopenhauer biography and 9 books of nonsense and tinkering I have filled since my release from the county jail in May.

Since you mentioned Kafka, I am bringing the "complete stories" ... I may want to read a few sentences of the Castle just to see if I can make the connection. 

It is 16 degrees Fahrenheit (-9 Celsius) outdoors, but I have a pair of coveralls I got for $40 in a consignment shop (like a thrift store). 

So, how long can this control freak personality in a position to fuuck with people drag this process on?   Today has to be the end, whether I get the document or not.  I am prepared to release myself if it comes down to a Kafkaesque nightmare.

I'll keep you posted. 

I think I will print out the excerpt from earlier in this thread and read it out loud all day.   :(

Quote
There could not be a more confused, incoherent, counterproductive, unethical, unscientific, and harmful approach to addiction recovery than the disease/treatment/recovery-group concept of addiction that prevails in our social service system.

The widespread practice of professionals forcing or intimidating clients into addiction treatment services is an unsurpassed ethical catastrophe, one made more ugly by the fact that so many who make use of their professional selves to fill the ranks of AA are AA members themselves.

Because of professionals, the public believes that addiction is a treatable disease epidemic, and will consequently tolerate endless expansion of the addiction treatment industry, and the increasing, systematic violation of addicted people's civil rights. In this, we have betrayed the public. If you tell your clients that addiction is or is caused by a disease, you are lying to them because you know full well there is no evidence to support that contention.

There is no way that the professions can be forgiven for their intolerable conduct during these frenzied years of freewheeling addiction treatment funding. The burden of guilt for the public health cataclysm of addiction treatment will remain a permanent, dark stain on all of the health professions.

If you are a licensed professional engaged in addiction treatment or counseling, I advise you here to get out of the business. It is a matter of your personal honor and professional stance. Substance abuse counseling is a bogus occupation, newly created around 1980 to accommodate rivers of federal cash. If you are a certified substance abuse counselor, find new work in an occupation for which you are qualified. Your certification is worthless, a kite flown on the winds of discontent, misguided trust, missionary zeal, and unwise legislation.

There is no help for addicted people, and as a professional you ought to know this. Addicted people will have to quit drinking and using, not a great accomplishment for any of them, but your "help" is only a distraction from, and often an obstacle to, their very serious task.

I will take the professions, and perhaps you, to task for the grievous error of offering services called addiction treatment, and for the unforgivable error of referring individuals into the social cult, Alcoholics Anonymous.

Also, for those counsellors who prescribe "Smart Recovery" to supplement AA 12 Step Groups, I'm not going for that shiitt either:

SMART Recovery is a spin-off of Rational Recovery consisting of professionals who believe that addiction is a psychological problem or has psychological origins. They waste peoples' time disputing irrational ideas and getting people to attend their recovery group meetings. SMART uses my literary albatross, The Small Book, and they refuse to recommend the later, and far better book, Rational Recovery: The New Cure for Substance Addiction, which takes the reader directly to complete recovery within the time it takes to read the book. The reason they won't recommend the better book, is that it eliminates the need to attend SMART meetings and makes fun of REBT pop-psychology. Stop wasting your time with recovery groups.

Against Therapy: Tell 'em I'm gone

I have been officially released from the "DARE" program as of today.

My case manager had contacted my probation officer, and she had no problem with me going about my business without "intensive supervision". 

My entire mind-body feels a great sense of relief.

 :)


tell em I'm gone

Tell 'em I'm gone ...  :D

When I think of Schopenhauer, some strange reason I think of an Exorcist. To an extent I think of myself as well as an exorcist. In the office,there are possessed people all around me spewing blasphemies at me.
They all are demons of hell.
And I am the exorcist whose chants and exhortations are impotent in the face of naked evil.

Actually, it was the 11th.

Schopenhauer was born on February 22

I hope no one tries to steal my "identity".

One can't be too paranoid these days.   :-\

I found the following to be worth reading.  It was the last chapter in Psychiatry Disrupted: Theorizing Resistance and Crafting the (R)evolution.  After clicking the link, you may have to rotate counter-clockwise to read it:

Mills, China. (2014). Sly Normality: Between Quiescence and Revolt
