So in the town where I was living, I became aware of some people who wanted to form a group for singles in ...

When I was 22 I decided to join Mensa. To join, I went to an event at which 2 different tests were administered. On the first (Wechsler?) I tested in the 97th percentile.

When I read this account I am struck by the emphasis on providing medical support to people who are still children.
