Hi, Jay.

I don't think I ever screamed, "God Damn It" louder than on the day I found out that my neighbor's severely depressed daughter, who I had met, committed suicide. When I was in my 20s, I wanted to become a research clinician to help understand biogenic mental illnesses and find effective treatments in order to help stop pain, suffering, and suicide. That became my life's goal, and I had planned to achieve it once I recovered my cognitive function upon my remission from bipolar depression.

When I was 33, the research clinician overseeing my case suggested that I give up on the idea of trying to become a doctor. He said that, even if he could bring me to remission, the stress and insane working schedule would probably cause me to relapse. I cried my eyes out. I knew that there were worse things, though. My prime mission, after all, was to successfully treat my illness and move forward without ever relapsing.

It's a good plan, anyway...

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
