I’d kindly ask that you refrain from lumping me with everyone else.
I’ve got no interest in becoming one of your perpetual patients.
I don’t suffer from some inherent mental defect.
I have no ”history”.
Disregard the hospitalizations.
The stints in rehab.
If there is a history it’s been a history of lacking adequate housing and resources that would have kept me otherwise stable.
I figure I’m just one of those unfortunate souls that’s tinkered with their factory defaults. As opposed to ambling through life on autopilot I’ve opted for a bit of reflection.
