Actually, I will defer to the scientific community to do all of the above. I am NOT an EXPERT. I am a lifelong student with a severe MENTAL ILLNESS. I SUFFER from GRANDIOSITY and other DELUSIONS. I'm crazy enough to speak my mind at all times. I get FIRED a lot. I have weird SLEEP patterns. My DREAMS are a super high tech TELEPATHIC and PSYCHEDELIC trip. I'm on Social Security Disability. I get $1709/month. Those who know me in person like me because I'm thoughtful and candid and gentle and intelligent and helpful and warm and friendly and reasonable. Those who know me only by e-mail usually stop responding to me. This is what it feels like to be MENTALLY ILL.
