Anymouse Posted March 14, 2008 Share Posted March 14, 2008 Well here I am. CrazyBoard.org. Until to-day I never heard of it. But this place is something I have been looking for, a long time now. Without going into a lot of details at the moment, I found this place trying to do a search on kohlrabi versus the infamous mao diet. Most of my life has been a quest to find satisfaction in loneliness - that being because no matter who I was with or what I was doing, I was too "strange" for them. So they would quit being with me. Easier not to bother trying. The only peace-of-mind I found was in the Navy: at least with the highly structured lifestyle and regulations, it both gave me a place where I could excell, and to a degree defended me from the excesses of those who equate "strange person" with such verbs as "ignore," "humiliate," or "anihilate," especially after I was high enough ranked that no one would do such things (at least to my face). I was diagnosed as both epileptic (after an incident falling off a helicopter doing maintenance), and anorexic and bipolar I (since changed by the Veterans Administration to schizoaffective), and in a matter of weeks, I went from a highly-sought after electronics technician, computer administrator, shop supervisor of seventeen years active service, and husband and father; to a pariah, discharged, divorced, and prohibited from seeing my son for 9 years, in a matter of weeks. Seventeen years of military service and eleven years of marriage - gone. And here I thought psychiatry was supposed to be "helpful" to you. For as long as I was married, I remained alone thereafter, frequently homeless or sofasurfing, my only outlet performing concerts and Renaissance Faires on the hammered dulcimer - I could meet folk or such and never really say anything to them - didn't want anything to do with anyone, and with Direct Deposit I didn't even have to go to the bank to cash my disability cheque. But not too long ago, in another place on the Internet, I met a wonderful woman, to whom I am now married for the last six months, and trying once again to participate in the world. And the kohlrabi question? I have been taking an MAOI (Parnate) since 1995. My wife wants to plant kohlrabi in the garden, but neither of us can find out if it will work on the blasted diet plan. Anyone got an idea? Does anyone know what kohlrabi even is? S Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
