No. The way my brain works is the only thing I have going for me. I don't know if this is the price I pay for the gift of creativity but I would rather endure the bad things that come with this than risk losing the good parts.

I get this all the time. I don't do it intentionally, but it seems like I always get pulled aside after a few weeks in a new social group to be told I'm making people uncomfortable.

We can use our focus to achieve things regular people only dream of.

And it's not insider trading if the other party doesn...

Outliving my retirement and having to work some dead-end job and living paycheck to paycheck. That or wasting away in a nursing home. I honestly don't know which one would be worse.

When I was drinking, my mom got sick of me and disowned me and told me she never wanted to speak to me again. I cried uncontrollably for days. It hurt even more than when I found out my father had died. It still does, but I'm coming to grips with it as the time passes.

I am. I have 2 accounts there with more than 100,000 karma and I'm considering getting a third up to the same level. Reddit is all I do pretty much every waking moment(when I'm not here of course!)
