It wasn’t until I began writing this vitamin series that I truly realized how important this was to me. Lee was completely surprised at how difficult that taking a pill was for me. She always thought that it was just funny but now she can see that it actually interferes with my ability to live a healthy lifestyle.
When last we met, you saw me give up taking pills. Now you get to see why. Warning: Watch this on an empty stomach. It can be a little graphic.
I have not taken a vitamin in five months. I try to stay healthy and I do believe that supplements are part of this. Lee laughs at me and my daughter cannot be in the same room as me if I am trying to take a pill. The pills simply do not go down and I end up spitting out some bad tasting slime. So I have given up taking normal pills. So this is my quest. I am the Man Of La Mancha, tilting at the windmill of my own gag reflex. This is my quest.. to swallow that pill… no matter how hopeless…
After a long week of rules, it would be nice to wake up to nastiness free internet. So sorry. It will take a little more time. The rules we have discussed this week are not an attempt to jump into a conversation but a methodically researched and discussed phenomenon. We impart these words based on our experience as therapists and business people. Our behavior on the internet is a manifestation of our psychological processes which are based on our experiences, traumas and understanding of the world around us. Our businesses are being directly affected by these behaviors whether it is us displaying AntiSocial Behavior or others who are attacking us.
Recently we were speaking at a conference and someone asked what we meant by AntiSocial Media. Aside from directing them to our posts on cyber bullying, we also made the following example: AntiSocial behavior would be if we were having a conversation at a restaurant and a stranger walked up to our table and, with raised voice, said ‘I don’t agree with you and I think you’re an idiot!’ The internet is not unlike that very same example. We have all experienced a Facebook status update that was usurped by someone who took offense to what we wrote. Perhaps it was written as an inside joke to a family member or friend. Perhaps it was based on a private matter and they felt the need to post a status update. Regardless of the context of the update, the comments are irrelevant to the situation and are abusive.
