We need to be aware that legal drugs can cause personality changes too.
As evidence for that claim wouldn't you have to compare the behaviour, both before and after the taking of legal, presumably medicinal drugs, so you could make an accurate comparisson, and hopefully arrive at a worthwhile conclusion?

As a conspiracy theory I don't think there's much mileage in this particular one.

...and if that was aimed at myself, knowing that I take drugs for Parkinson's disease, but were too mealy-mouthed to actually name me, you may very well be right.

I'm certainly much more relaxed when faced with idiocy, than I was years ago.

Ask anyone who knew me as a child.

I've never been one to suffer fools gladly.

Even ones who are a bit dense, through no fault of their own.

Still, if it brings some sort of comfort to your life, so be it.

Wrong.

Again.

Just because you weren't the recipient, doesn't mean it didn't happen in the past.

Your evidence for this particular theory is patchy, to say the very least.

I recall you once apologised for your nasty remarks to me.
Todays red karma shows me that times(you) have changed.

You're forgiven.

You are wrong, and in an attempt to show kindness to the less fortunate, I forgive you.

Those who've known me a long while, both before and after taking prescribed drugs for Parkinson's, will confirm I've always been as nice as pie...to nice people, but have always been in the habit of giving rude, nasty, or stupid people a taste of their own medicine...with an added dose of poison thrown in for good measure.

No change there then.

Now spark up another roll up, and settle down to spend yet more time reading things you find obviously find distasteful, but which somehow fills up a hole in your life.

That was pity I felt.

I tried to make excuses for some of the crap you've posted before about myself, and my health issues.

It's probably a good job you're a hermit, afraid to go out in case someone's wearing Tweed by Lentheric at the bus stop.

You think I'm scathing?

After reading some of the things you have posted, if you ever meet my mother again, who someone told what drivel you'd come out with on here, you ain't seen nothing yet.

I'm a pussy cat, when dealing with nastiness, in comparisson.

Perhaps personality's more genetic, than influenced by prescribed medicine.

Give, give, give.

Your obviously bitter about your illness - which is why your always muck raking and dragging up my brothers activities, which I had nothing to do with and also were over 5 - 6 years back.

Now that I know I can be a bit more empathic and maybe forgive your attitude - maybe - not sure yet.

Er...no, I'm not actually.

I'm very much a glass half full type of person, besides being much too lazy to waste time worrying about things I can't change.

It's a chapter I didn't see coming in life's book, but having Parkinson's has brought about many positive changes in my life.

A pension that paid out, retiring at thirty nine, and leaving the rat race whilst still relatively young, and as many holidays in the sun that I can cope with in a year, bitter?

Yeah, right.



Back to the subject of this thread, the legalisation of recreational drugs.

Here's another poor soul, who suffered the consequences of his decision to take mind-altering drugs, for his own pleasure.

At least mine was signed.

Unlike your's, given in return.

Anonymously hinting at some sinister secret about my late father, and aunt, who were childhood neighbours of your's.

You're scraping that barrel so desperately you're almost getting a tune out of it.

Bless you.

Who needs drugs?

It's true.

Laughter is the best medicine.

Anonymous venom is foul and cowardly -I hope the Mods can deal with this on your behalf Garinda.

You seem to be taking this with a pinch of salt and good for you for having that attitude.

I am outraged on your behalf...
