Self-Censorship

I am afraid to speak out and I feel that was the point of my diagnosis. Since I have none of the symptoms but still have the label, and the symptoms were brought on by the medications that were forced on me from the get-go.

I’m tired of being afraid. I don’t feel like I should be afraid to speak my mind in America.

Isn’t this country founded upon basic human rights?

You can say whatever you want. But getting someone to listen and understand is a different story.

At least they changed my label.

I just want to stop being paranoid. I don’t know if it’s true or not. That’s the problem. There are just so many reasons for me to believe it was done on purpose.

Ok, just for the sake of it, say it was all lies, you were forced with the label, everything was done on purpose, there still has to be a reason for it all to have happened.
Why would you be afraid to speak the truth? (Other than the obvious you can’t say for fear of harm)
Who benefits from what has been done and if your quiet?

Just throwing this out there maybe you should talk to a lawyer.

Oops I’m not supposed to say that.

Maybe you are right. Would that be so bad if you’re good enough to get noticed, and make bank for doing so?
Some cannot be what others want, and some can be what others need, it’s a very grey world indeed.
And sometimes it’s better to bend, than it is to break.

Thanks for the idea, Csummersx. I think I would need to get more college credits and finish my degree first. I also would rather work in human resources and help the community than be a detective. Plus, you don’t want to get noticed if you work for people trying to solve and subvert crimes and it’s a tricky business.

I don’t care that people read my emails if they do, but I don’t think I want to work for them.
I’d rather actually make the world a better, safer place.

I agree with you about making the world a better place, nothing better than being able to sleep at night instead of with one eye open.
Like I said, this is a very strange world, and sometimes the bad people do good things, and a lot of good people get away with doing bad things, but in the end, it’s the accumulation of all things done that determine a person’s worth.
