The thrill is gone.

As we've shared before, I'm prone to some unhealthy tendencies, genetic or non, and this report shakes me up a wee bit.


message 2: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Wow.


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

I guess this is good.

Why does this shake you up Sally?




Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Do you have the urge to steal stuff, Sally?

Matthieu | 1009 comments "With the help of naltrexone and Jesus, Darlene says, she is staying on the straight and narrow."

Haha.

Awesome, Bun.

Well, Jim and Jackie, I do have the urge to steal stuff. I've never shoplifted, except for the Rollo incident when I was six, but when I see things laying about without their owners my urge is to snatch them, take them home, and make them mine.
I don't act upon the urge. But it is there.

I also have a very addictive personality, and alcoholic tendencies that I have to work to keep in check. If I give myself an inch, I'll . . . behave badly. I don't know how to conclude that metaphor.

But the thought that these impulses (and what other behaviors) are linked with the same neurotransmitters, or synapses, or whatever, kind of, well, shakes me up! It doesn't give me the creeps, or make me angry or sad, or amused like it does Bunny. It just kind of reaffirms a sneaking assumption I've always had that I'm not all good.

Not all the time.

Now, I don't need Naltrexone, mind you. I'm responsible, intelligent member of society. I've just noticed, that's all.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments It's interesting how things are connected. I'm glad you can control your impulses, Sally, but now you have an option if you need one some day.

I've never shoplifted, but occasionally, I come up with master plans on how to do crimes, in case I decide one day to become a master criminal.

I do think it would be a thrill to rob a bank.

Especially the part where the money explodes red dye all over you.

And I'm glad I can control my impulses too, Jacks. Please don't think I'll ever need this pill. Please. Erase that from your memory, burn this after reading, and throw your puter off the balcony after you hit 'post' the next time.

That is all.
