Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

The Tragedy of the Connecticut Shooting

Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital 6

Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital

The sole cause of this tragedy is the mental illness of one person that has no correlation to the media, video games, or other external societal factors.

In the late 90s the State of CT began a program called mainstreaming thats stated goal was to empty the state mental hospitals of individuals like this who would have been institutionalized for life and put them back into society. The failed theory was these people would be able to function with adequate support (that never was properly funded) to lesson the financial burden of life time hospitalizations on the public with “lip service” to giving long term institutionalized a better quality of life.

This is the reason the shooter was not receiving appropriate treatment including hospitalization. While the general public wishes to demonize him, he is a victim of a failed social experiment that put financial savings over the interests of the individual and society as a whole.

He may land permanently in prison, rather than a hospital, but that only adds him to the statistics of the incarcerated who are there because they can not or did not get the mental health treatment needed in the outside world. These individuals make up approximately 15% of the incarcerated population, or over 1, 000, 000.

Personal Entry about medical care aversion

This is actually 99% a letter I sent to a friend who wisely counseled me to seek medical attention after I not only broke my big toe on my right foot, but when I broke it, I also half ripped the nail off so I was squirting blood at the same time.  (No, I didn’t actually seek medical attention and you’ll see this is not an unusual act below.)

Ok, I’m sure, now my readers want to know how I broke my toe.   It was really warm about 4am and I’d already closed the house up for the winter.  All the storm windows were down.  I opened the window, then the storm window.  In my delirium from not having yet been asleep (nod to Facebook for keeping me up during a work night to 4am), I forgot to put down the screen.  Moments later, my cat jumped into the window and nearly fell out.  It is a 9 foot drop!  I was so worried about my cat, I went flying off my bed to get to the window to save my cat.  My right foot got caught in the sheet and I tripped.  My toe came smashing facing straight down with 200+ pounds.  Broken toe and ripped up nail.  (PS.  The pain was terrible!  Easily the 4th worse pain I’ve EVER felt and that is a big statement when you read below.)

The letter below:

I think it is almost something hardwired into men about needing assistance, including medical.

This is minor compared to some injuries I’ve avoided medical attention. In 1999 I made an extremely poor mistake, forgetting I am NOT superman, tried to move a 3000 pound fully loaded 20 oz soda cooler with a hand dolly (alone) and dropped it on my right leg. All 3000 pounds landed handle first directly on the inside of my leg immediately above the knee. And pinned myself under it when it fell. I ruined the muscles, the internal bleeding was so bad that my whole leg turned black, and when my mom nagged me enough to go to the hospital 2 DAYS later, the bleeding was so bad that they could not operate to fix anything because I would have bled to death. All we could so is wait to see if I died or not. AND, through pain most people can only imagine, I had to continue to run my restaurant. I admit to spending a lot of time crying in anguish from the pain. I could take nothing for the pain which would thin my blood and increase the chances of death. (Aspirin is a good blood thinner which is why people take low doses to help prevent heart attacks.)

Once I lived, only by the graces of God, the doctors told me I would never walk again. I refused to accept that, just like I refused to accept I would lose the ability to properly use my right index finger after I chopped it almost complete off with a meat slicer in 1989 (but that is another story since I did DRIVE to the emergency room after I drove home 30 miles away and picked up my wife first). The muscles are still dead, crushed, but I did a lot of WORK to develop the undamaged muscles surrounding the ruined area. I’ve regained 90% for use and no one can tell at all about the injury unless I try to over do it to much. (This when I started gaining weight, from being unable to maintain the levels of activity I have always had. Though, my voracious appetite for everything, including food has never decreased to much my decreased ability to maintain my previous physical activity levels.)

Ok, that is probably more than you’d expect of the history of Paul. LOL. I talk the same; it CONSTANT streams of consciousness.

Remember 9 11 and to be vigilant against evil in all its forms

9-11, Let no one forget that the terror that strikes at the heart of man comes from the evil in the hearts of men and that we, God’s chosen people, must always be vigilant against evil in all its forms.

Original Poem I saw beauty today

I saw beauty today
Where it had been hiding
Lost amongst weeds of debris
from modern society’s castoff
was the beauty of the divine
And this beauty spoke
a whisper barely heard
a cry to be acknowledge
and I embraced this divine beauty
small and warm and needy
my newest friend
my newest companion
lost divine beauty found
she meows to me now
she rescued me, not me her
I saw beauty today
and she has claimed me as hers.
