It’s always a goal to do just as you say, but unfortunately I fail time and again. I write political articles, and have done so for many years, a few of them for the controversial PoliticusUSA.com. After I left they got called out as being click-bait or having misleadingly headlines, but I have like 100 articles there.

So you would think I would be able to just walk away or write that excellent response you wrote when I get trolling comments every time.

My Achilles’ heel is my emotional conditions. From Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to Bipolar II to ADD to Binge Eating Disorder to Compulsive Hoarding, I literally spend three hours of my week directly in different kinds of therapy to help me handle my emotions.

I have often wondered just how many of these people I am running into are undiagnosed or untreated or both. Mental/emotional disorders affect 20% of the population if you add them all together. People with

  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Major Depression
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Addiction
  • Any one of Numerous Personality Disorders
  • PTSD
  • ADHD

That’s a lot of people with the potential to overreact. I have made it a specific goal to work on being more like you.
