MaryPoppins is MaryPoppins' raving lunatic alter ego. She's another personality that appears on these boards from time to time. Not to be confused with MaryPoppins. Now SHE'S a real piece of work. All three are the same people - even though MaryPoppins would like to fool you into thinking that there is only one of her. She's been hiding behind the name MaryPoppins for a long time hoping that nobody notices that there are many MaryPoppins. Regardless of how many there are, or what she may think she's getting away with, all of them are going straight to hell in a handbasket.

MaryP - what thread was that?

OMW - it was a joke a while back when we were discussing being banned and coming back under various nicknames and IP addresses. :o)

BTW - I like your convicted, yet kind way of explaining your believes :o) You lead by example, and I appreciate that.

OMW,

Hey, hold me to high standards, too. I don't put a religious label on myself, but I do believe in being honest, sincere, and loving. Many of us come to this board having been wounded in childhood and in various stages of recovery, so there are plenty of opportunities for healing, for personal growth, and for learning to love and accept ourselves and others.

A year or so ago, I started a thread with a kind of question about an issue I had, and then I realized I had an answer. No one had posted yet, so I posted to myself. I think I even exchanged a few posts with myself - praising my own wisdom, trying to be funny. I think that's how I started Mary, Mary, Mary. There were some references to it by other people - this was on the Support side. And recently, on the nicknames thread, all the Marys posted again. I think there may be some people who remember, but it's really my own private joke. Mostly between myself and the other Marys. I don't have multiple personalities, if that's what you might be thinking. Although, I do like that show, the United States of Tara, and I just saw the Three Faces of Eve for the first time a couple of weeks ago.

It's no joking matter, of course, to have multiple personalities. Not sure if that is the politically correct term.

Mary

Oh, man, Shaney. Thank you for that. You're right about all of it. The Marys did, however, make their first appearance on the Support side. There may have even been a Marsha, Marsha, Marsha reference somewhere. I can hardly keep up with all of them.

Thank you for the laugh. It feels good to be understood, understood, and understood.

from all of us, with love

All of the Marys take meds for depression and OCD, OCD, OCD, OCD, OCD (was that 5 times?). There's Bipolar disorder on my mom's side. Possibly MPD as well. My mom hasn't explored it too much. Amazingly, it skipped her, so she claims!! She goes untreated and unmedicated to this day...

That show The United States of Tara, is pretty cool. They attempt to deal with MPD in a realistic and educated way - with humor and love, as well. I've been meaning to ask here if anyone has seen it.

Sometimes it takes me a while here to come around with amends, but...

Bereft and TB, I'm sorry for my part in stirring the pot and fueling the fire. Mixing metaphors, too.

We're in the Bible belt. In fact, we're in the buckle of the Bible belt, I think. "What church do y'all go to?" is a common icebreaker.

I get that you both believe Jesus is the one and only way to heaven. And I get that you feel you need to spread his word. However, if either of you want to have a conversation with me, you'll have to stop telling me I'm going to hell and accept that I can think for myself. Maybe, maybe, I just might have my own relationship with "God" that suits me just fine. I'm not lost nor blind.

CRAIGCO:

"But berating, shaming, and excluding others is not cool."

Now THAT's an interesting statement. Perhaps it depends upon the circumstances i.e. whether or not such behavior suits/satisfies our needs and or desires?. Just a thought. hmmmm

peace

Well thank you, but I wan't talking about 'me' per say, but what Christians represent. I like the fact that questions arise to make one aware of how we come across, because in truth, we don't represent ourselves, but the sweet JC inside, and that is what is most important. 🙂 I was speaking for the group.

Shaney,

Thank you for the compliment, I appreciate it. If I can represent God like this to people, then I know He is working in me.

All the Mary's,

I do know what you mean, sometimes when you start writing, answers just come to the forefront. I have had conversations with myself too! 🙂

Some people can go untreated all throughout their lives. Sometimes the meds help, sometimes they make matters worse.

Glittered,

What kind of work do you do, besides writing clever posts, if I may ask...

I *wish* I got paid to write clever posts.

I had an assortment of sarcastic multiple choices that i was going to give as my occupation...ok..here's the unoffensive version (none of which are accurate):

A: Wardrobe manager for Janet Jackson.

B: Fashion Consultant for Don Cherry of Hockey Night in Canada

C: Barber for Donald Trump

D: As a robotics expert maintaining the murderous cyborgs that you call Dick Cheney and Karl Rove.

Ok, I guess traditionally that question implies work one is paid to do - though I meant it in a broader sense.

Anyway, if A, guessing on B, and C were all true, you suck at your jobs. Unfortunately, the man or woman with job D has done excellent work.

Now, please, bring on the offensive version.

In anticipation...

Tree,

I hear you. I think I understand your post completely, although my opinion is that it depends on your individual perception of shame. No one has the power to shame me. They might try, and I might or might not know what compels them to do so. An attempt to shame is to attempt to diminish that person's stature. Because of my past, sometimes attempts at shaming me work, sometimes it doesn't. This is a manipulative tactic used for a variety of reasons.

Religions do it to quell certain types of behaviour, such as non-conformism, or even questions that might be uncomfortable to the person being asked. When the Catholic Church was the society, excommunication was the worst fate a person could suffer. Total condemnation and ostracism. Shunned, to be avoided. I believe this is the legacy of Xtianity, passed through churches, on to parents, schools, etc. I have always thought that the thing a person preaches about or warns against the most is what s/he fears the most in her/himself. For example homosexuality, promiscuity, sin, hell.

When I was in school, teachers used it to teach students that they would be shamed, ridiculed, and outcast for certain beheviours. E.g. standing in the corner in front of the class,standing in the hallway at lunchtime as a punishment, so all the other kids can point and laugh (public shaming), having recess privileges taken away, etc. Communities do it to exert control.

The lesson is - public examples will be made, ostracism will occur. It's what happens to those that don't conform to the status quo, whatever it is, wherever it is. Our roots of shame and our reactions to these attempts are from our childhood, and until we can confront those roots within ourselves, we will continue to be victims of ourselves and those who would like to manipulate us.

The person who tries to exert control by trying to shame often picks up on those signs in us. It's a fascinating dynamic to watch.

Lusty Mary,

Look for a fairly tall, fairly lean & fairly cody looking 49 yr old male on the other side. Assuming of course, that I pass the audition, maybe we could just "raise a little hell" of our own?

I hope for Naughty Mary's sake, there are stripper poles in hell. I'll bet there are.

And glittered - in hell, maybe you could try your hand at being a pimp? That's probably a popluar profession down there. Your bitches can be called Haities Ladies.
