Sometimes it is good to talk to normies that aren't your therapists

i am jewish and it was my holiday this weekend. i was talking to some people, family that are doctors and stuff but not my doctor. it was so revealing to me and so much easier to understand than just listening to my therapists or reading a psychologists/psychiatrist’s book.

the perspective was better too.

just thought i’d share.

love ya, judy


Yes, I talk to normies all of the time in my assisted living center. They are cool, if they don’t know your diagnosis. And some of them are cool even if they do.

Is it Roshashana? I saw many people walking from the temple the other day.

yep bigjon it’s our new year – rosh hashana.

this saturday i have to fast. i hate fasting but i have to do it because i believe in it.

oh god, the headaches from fasting!!



Love 'em or hate 'em, but a lot of so-called normies are interesting people and interesting to watch.

The thing about normies, i used to be one of them, but yes they are dullards

I have a question if you’d indulge me. Does Judaism teach the belief in heaven? I have some Jewish in-laws that say it’s not exactly like that but I didn’t get it at the time.

If you don’t want to talk about it that’s cool too.

I still have like half a dozen people I’ve known since highschool. It’s great to have conversations with normals…mind you they aren’t so normal. One isn’t a doctor but was a psych nurse for a long time. It is always good to catch up with him and we talk shop so to speak.

It’s an interesting perspective when you talk to people in the field!

heaven and hell isn’t a big part as far as i know. we believe in God and the emphasis is on how you treat your neighbor… judy
