How a Bit of Missing Information...

Can Change Everything You 'Think” You Understand.

This 'letter' following is  going around the net through some of my whacky friends who have been entertained by it. Many of us who have been psychiatrized find it amusing in ways that those of you have not, might not find as funny, in quite the same way that we do, but I thought I would use it here as an example of the way information, missing, added or spun changes the nature of our personal reality.
I would like you 'normal' people to notice how even if you believe you understand the facts, when you get the information on the other side of the experience, it often surprises you. Being assesses and evaluated by the psychiatric hospital staff and all of their contacts everywhere is a lot like being the missing letter in answer to the first one here.
Please stop 'spinning' other people's reality FOR them and learn how to mind your own business. In fact, see if you can figure out what that MEANS. You are making us all dizzy.
Another great 'joke' follows.

Dear wife:

I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever. I've been a good man to you for 7 years and I have nothing to show for it.
These last 2 weeks have been hell.

Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw. Last week, you came home and didn't even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favourite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don't tell me you love me anymore; you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore; whatever the case, I'm gone.

Your EX-Husband
P.S. Don't try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!

Dear Ex-Husband

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter.

It's true you and I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping. Too bad that doesn't work. I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a girl!' Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment. And when you cooked my favourite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning.

After all of this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job and bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess.

I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dime from me.

So take care.

Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell and Free!

P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl.

I hope that's not a problem.
