In Programming, they say
"like, WOW! What better place to find comfort and
help with sickness than a bunch of other sickies?"
Uh, EXCUSE ME! REALITY CHECK calling!
Pretty much anywhere!!!
Why on earth would other sick people
be the source for sanity and reason?
(some sicker by far; usually the sickest ones of all
stick with AA the longest, so deeply troubled and needy
and controlling and ego-ridden are they, ever-anxious to
sink their fangs in a new stray.)
You wouldn't ask a dying person how to get well from
a real disease.
You wouldn't ask another broken down car for a jump.
Even if some are actually doing what they say they are doing,
(and how would you actually know which sociopath to trust!)
all of those pronounced character defects
(lying, cheating, thieving, egotism, maniuplation,
sadism, selfishness) are just under the surface ready
to pop up and sucker-punch you.
And since it's just like the Catholic Church up in there;
all they have to do is wax apologetic AFTER an infraction
and they're 'good to go.'
Nobody's worried one damned bit about your welfare.
So, as always, you better do it for yourself.
And that includes the foresight of
being cautious with whom you trust.
Why would you put faith or trust in a group of
folks that celebrate their brokenness,
promoting themselves as powerless and wretched and sick?
Dig out from under that rock.
