"Scientists at the University of Amsterdam have discovered that the drug propranolol, a beta-blocker, prevents the return of unpleasant memories. The finding could lead to a new realm of treatments for patients with posttraumatic stress and other emotional disorders"

I saw the headline on a daily newspaper i was scanning through at work yesterday and in that moment it cut thru all the barriers i had up like they weren't even there & i actually choked up. I managed to skillfully hide it, of course, cos i'm a pro.

I wanted to do a lil poll to find out ppls thoughts about the questions this raises for me. Answers are hidden.
The idea behind this is not that I want someone else to make my mind up for me, rather i would like some different people's opinions to help sort out all the thoughts and emotions I am having that are associated with this. Answers are to be based on the assumption that the testing of Propranolol shows that it does work in the capacity they think it might do.

Please don't be afraid to answer even if you know me a little, All opinions are welcome :)

Poll #1350935 News...

Knowing what you do of me would you say Propranolol would be a viable option to look into?

Yes
3(50.0%)
No
3(50.0%)

What is your reasoning for this?

What do you think about the theory that doing this could fundementally alter someone's persona? it could also be that your character is set by past experiances rather than the everyday referral to those memories.

If the application of the drug did have a profound effect on personality & i decided to go for it, What kind of person do you think i'd become?

Would this be a good or bad thing?

This space is for you to fill with any other thoughts or some randomness to keep me entertained :D
