    I've thought about it, and my tentative answer is that I think we personalize demons a bit too much. Surely, they are intelligent to a degree and can work towards goals (maybe with some backstabbing along the way), but perhaps their rebellion against God and source of anybodies only true purpose has made them more like "balls" of chaotic energy. Like the Joker, they just do things, maybe for the lulz of spreading confusion or maybe they don't even know why they do the things they do. They lept at the chance when Jesus offered them the bodies of pigs to inhabit, but a truly introspective mind would wonder what they would do with a pig afterwards....

    I dunno - the alternative was the Abyss - the pigs might actually have been the better choice.

    We would assume that the mind is either a gateway or a hindrance against possession, otherwise we would assume demons could just reanimate dead corpses. So if the mind is constrained by medication, then the demons' ability to control the person would presumably be hindered.

    I have actually had similar manifestations to that alleged possession when I came off lorazepam (anti-anxiety pill) cold turkey.

    Don't DO that! It's bad for you!


    It does help if your doctor mentions this before you find out the hard way - as I did with zoloft...
