usernametaken Posted November 20, 2007 Share Posted November 20, 2007 Hi CB lovelies, looking for some courage to face misguided public view of news, maybe wrong board, move if needed So the situation: my MI hasn't come up with my only same-age aquiantances in the town i've moved to and its getting akward. they are open, caring, quick-to-feel-bad, and educate themselves kind of people but somehow for some reason they talk a lot about people going nutz in their academic department. suddenly "manic-depressive", "OCD", and is going to come in with a gun, are pharses that get thrown around, but the biggest one is "psychotic" this, psychotic that and i know that of all weekly talking-point gravitations, this subject is pretty random, but it doesn't change the fact that i'm the one needing to educate them, very smart people mind you, that psychosis is a very real problem. one where i have been a victim because of it, not a damn perpetrator like 90% of the public perception. (too my assailants were perhaps aquaintances at the alma matter). last week i almost said something, cuz the longer this draws out, the deeper the lack of communication and trust extends. but i don't know how to broach the subject. i just withdrew from a bridge to these people, who i'd like as friends. it's my responsiblity and the likelihood of acceptance is far greater than that of rejection. 24 hours to think of something. ideas? experiences? how to communicate this gracefully? thanks guys Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
