      To me this would be pretty messed up but there are some messed up people in this world so I figured I would ask. If yes, what did they say to you?

      Hey if you are in the hospital for detox ask the doctor about Trileptal. My psychiatrist said she sometimes prescribes that for anxiety instead of benzodiazapines. Not sure if it will help but you could ask.

      Probably sound, though never proven
      Oh Jason. What a question to ask. I hope you aren't asking because it happened to you. That would be awful.

      No, it didn't happen to me. Everyone I have told has been either sympathetic, neutral, or uncaring but not delighting in finding out.
