Recently, I have been contemplating about turning my emotions off for awhile. For the time being, I would like to pretend I am like that imaginary figure "Mr. Spock" from the Star Trek, and act like I don't own any emotions. My therapists never held much of this idea, saying it is repressive, potentially dangerous; a volatile source to sink deeper in non-productive negative emotions. But the reason I want to do it, is because I want a break, so that the negative emotions don't dictate my life. Is it really so bad to treat everyone in your world as if you were the Avon Lady and everyone else is just your customer? Just long enough so you can get a grip on yourself? Isn't that what Prozac and all of those other happy pills do for you anyway? I don't get to take happy pills, because the professional treatment community has a strict control about how much potentially addictive medications they are allowed to subscribe for what sorts of diagnosed cases in the country, laid down by the Germany Ministry of Health and the Public Social Health Insurance Companies. They used to have too many people who were addicted by prescription.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
