Lunacy

Postby Samoan » 29 Nov 2020, 12:36

Do any of you feel "out of sorts" when a full moon is approaching ? There's one tonight.

My brother feels he seems to spend the best part of such days waiting around endlessly for all the necessary clinical personnel to assemble for a meeting at the local psychiatric hospital, (with him as the patient's GP) with a view to sectioning or not sectioning a patient. There would also be two consultant psychiatrists, two senior psych nurses and the patient's community psych social worker.
Nonsense to the aggressiveness, I've seen more aggression on the my little pony message board......I mean I was told.

I do know if I was on night shifts patients would very often behave differently at a full moon. I don’t have any explanation for it that I really believe, but they did go bananas.

I'll spare you the Werewolf by Night jokes, but I did once visit a commune where they had a group exercise dealing with the various personality types. One type was called "lunar", and that's about all I remember.

Interesting, Googs.

Haven’t noticed it about the moon but I tend to get a little edgy when the north wind blows.
This is not the year to think about what we don’t have.
It is the year we should be grateful for what we do have.

I have not noticed any such phenomenon, but there is something oddly exciting about the sight of a full moon. Must be a cultural thing.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Rebecca fell in love with me while walking from a restaurant to my favorite pub during a full moon so it has been a positive thing since then. 8-)

I often go prowling in the hills on full moon nights. Last night was no exception. I love the ambience and the extra light provided by the moon. I even did some howling for good measure.

But the Moon there is just the first cycle of childhood development. There was one other type mentioned, Mars.
