That alot of bean dip, and I like bean dip...I guess I tried some of that last year with her, I didn't know it was called bean dipping but I tried some of it I guess when she would start in on how she knows it and wants to steer me to the light basically, I tried to step out of the conversation with some variation of "I have a really good doctor,..he's treating me for anxiety...did you see that new movie?" But she didnt take the bean dip offered.
. She would ask me why did you change the subject? Several times she said how I'm doing that bc I "can't bear to hear the truth, and denial is a classic symptom
She seems to be somewhat immune to beandip
Do people generally "take" the beandip? In my case, she points it out "your changing the subject, I know its bc its u comfortable for you to hear this,but I'm telling you bc I care.....Susie, Susie, denial is a classic symptom. Your only proving it more that you have it by being defensive about it
I tried to disengage with her and for months she didnt bring it up again, she might have been preoccupied with other things, or not sure, but in any case months went by and no word was said of it....I was starting to think it was bc she finally relented, whether or not she agreed. But then the issue was like I said brought up again when she handed me this book.
I think I will send her a card saying its an interesting book, I was able to find a few tidbits such as relaxation that could be useful even for those without bipolar
