There is a guy in my SZ group who has the delusion that the government is spying on him and all of us. Usually I just breathe deep when someone starts this dialogue and I just keep telling myself… text book, text book, text book… Very real to him, scary for him, I understand but I won’t buy in. Just breathe and don’t panic about other people on the street.
But this guy has a huge stack of news paper articles about the NSA and it’s broad range out of control spying and the prez is trying to limit it’s power, and the patriot Act being used by the government trying to bully libraries for borrowing history and Google standing strong against government audits… this is in the news papers.
Just like my thing with kidnappers… doc’s had a hard time with that one because they couldn’t prove kidnappers don’t exist and human trafficking doesn’t happen. I had milk cartons and news articles and missing posters.
I read the news and I just think, this poor guy… and I. My doc is trying to tell me and others… the government isn’t out to spy on you… But then news article after news article… What a crazy time we live in. I just keep telling myself… well, if the government want’s to spy, they are going to get very bored with me quickly. I am not that interesting.
