As I was sitting in a class at London Correctional Prison, Ohio,as an inmate some yrs ago-The facilitator asked this question-"Who thinks they are good decision makers"--My arm couldn't get up fast enough,my mind was ready with all kinds of examples--then the man said-You are in prison man how could you be good at making decisons, and be here? I felt like the robot on Lost in Space..WARNING-THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE..I was utterly flabbergasted-the reality of my sick mind was exposed, and I felt stupid...the power of my sick mind to keep me in the fantasy, make believe world that it had created was a power so strong that in prison, it was telling me your OK--"Nothing wrong here Ma-ain't It grand the wind stop blowin" My life was totally out of controll and every one, but me, could see it!So there's my- "FULL FLIGHT FROM REALITY" story, any other stories are welcome...please. :wink:
