    OldDude, My question regarding the turtle is this: Did you a.) take it back to the side of the road BEHIND it? [like from whence it came], or b.) the side of the road it was facing, ostensibly where it was going?

    You always need to takethe turtle to the side of the road it was heading for! They may not be hugely BRIGHT in the brains dept, but they do have a sense of direction. And, too, maybe it was just warming itself; or maybe ...waiting for the bus to Hollywood? Bright city lights and the promise of Ninja-hood?
    Listen to No Stars, Old Dude.

    I wish I would have never stopped; just like when Jacob picked up that damn nail gun. He should have just left it alone. I should have just left the turtle alone. But now I have this burden to carry for the rest of my life!!!
    I have faith that you will bend and not break.

    I can legitimize this in regard to turtle behavior. I think once they develop suicidal ideation they won't give up until the deed is done. I have a similar experience to share. I was running an errand, driving toward town, on a narrow road; edged on one side by residences and the other side by a lake which was situated behind a grass covered levee. A turtle was idling smack dab in the middle of the road, just standing there, head out - no movement, big one, about 10" across its shell. I stopped, picked up the turtle, carried it through the ditch next to the levee, over the levee, and down to the edge of the lake. I went on my way, feeling the good Samaritan, saving just one little "star fish" that got thrown back into the sea. Upon completion of my errand I returned the same way; about an hour later. The turtle was back in the road, same spot, just standing there, head out, no movement.

    I saved your life...or not. It was alive when I drove past - The End.
    Sounds like this Turtle requires an assessment by none other than

    I was also thinking we could just, um, ya know, pat people down

    Nah, that role's already filled by TSA during the grope & scope at airport security.

    Pat was an androgynous character in the old Saturday Night Live shows. They would always tease with identifying Pats gender but they never would.

    I dreamed of being a backup singer.

    So, wadda 'bout YOU? ***ETA if this is considered highjacking a thread, please feel free to delete it. After I got it printed the first time, I realized maybe it should be another thread entirely. Mea culpa.
    Not at all off topic, No Stars. Visual imagery, daydreaming, fantasizing- whatever you want to call it- is a very good relaxation technique equal to meditation.

    Case in point: Patients dx with MDD often experience racing thoughts with a recurrent theme. Low dose antipsychotics as part of a medication regimen help with this. Newly admitted or medicated Patients often complain of insomnia due to these redundant racing thoughts stating, "I just can't stop thinking about _________."

    A few approaches which work well with these Patients are relaxation techniques which involve the same sort of concept which you described No Stars. I've often told Patients that their thoughts are like books on a shelf- they choose which book they wish to read- whether it be The Biggest Drama of Your Life or An Enjoyable Event, the choice is theirs.

    This is, of course, a simplified version of the intervention, but you get the gist.

    I can see that.

    Oh, I thought of Pat! Glad I was right!

    I was also thinking we could just, um, ya know, pat people down as they come into the bathroom... and call them Pat Rooms. You know, as a verb.
    Nah, that role's already filled by TSA during the grope & scope at airport security. The bathroom police need to find some originality. They are very lacking in that regard.
