I just had to put this out before you all. I hate that they call this emotional illness a mental illness. It is so wrong. It bugs me that sometimes people treat you like your retarded and have an Iq of 70 (actually its much higher, which is true of you all too). Today in my store I had a lady who had a mental something or another. She walks in and cuts in front of everyone waiting like she owned the place and then almost yelling starts asking for the office supply store that had chairs and desks, except that her lower 5 teeth in the front were all missing so you couldn't understand her until she repeated the word 3 times getting louder each time like you couldn't hear her,while giving you the look like your a moron. It was all I could do to direct her to the place with a strait face. And I'm the one with the mental disorder. sheesh. How do you feel , should we as patients tell our doctors that it should be either a brain disorder or an emotional disorder but not a mental disorder, cause it has nothing to do with intelligence. I know that they associate mental with the mind but it still doesn't seem right.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
