It involves something some of us like to do very much ...daydreaming


I just read this as "Quirks, Quarks and Quacks." :biggrin:

Given the number of times I see "mental illness" being used as a defense I wonder how many criminally accused believe "IF ONLY I could get everyone to believe I was just daydreaming!"

Knowing several with mental illness, I wish daydreaming was it. Unfortunately some aren't functioning with mental illness, everything needs to be structured for them, in homes. I've worked with enough of them.
Could it be that a whole life can shift the day one starts telling the truth about what makes one happy?

QK, may I respectfully suggest you listen to that segment as your interpretation from the title alone is not the correct interpretation of the interview. It takes 5 min.

I have no dog in this thread but thought of you all while I was listening.

Okay, because you asked, I must say though, those whom I know are not daydreaming. The 13 year old who is the daughter of a former beau, was diagnosed with the most severe case of schizophrenia ever in someone so young in BC wasn't either. As I walked with her and listened, she was as ill as anyone.

I will have trouble making it to the 3 minute mark I suspect.

ETA: is there a link? I hafta work at this? :biggrin:

just google Quirks and Quarks, Nov. 9, 2017, look at Daydreamers segment

That should bring it up for you.

I thought everyone in N. America tuned into this show. Hope you become a fan too. It's one of the last reasons for cbc to exist.
