I don't know, I have an individual who has known me for years and I don't see it as an insult, its just concern and I appreciate that someone thinks about me.

> Are you trying to tell me that it isn't reasonable to be angry at the whole entire world?

Anger at the world is a natural response to having a serious disorder and is one part of coming to terms with things. I suppose its sort of also related of the process of realizing that you can't control the world and coming to terms with what concerns you. Personally at least, I can identify that.

There's ways of looking at medication too, I mean, I have polypharmacy and I look at the bottles in front of me and I'm in a situation where I have to take certain medications I'd rather not have to and sometimes thoughts enter about this is the medication I don't want to take, etc. Other times I'm sort of just fatalistic about side effects and just take them as is.

There's semantics to it as well and when I discuss psychotropics (which can be legal or not legal). "Meds" sounds sort of pop-pyschiatry to me. A "drug" sounds more like a street drug. I guess "medication" is what I use, personally.

Speaking of which, I also have to take my medication.
