The case for insanity is compelling
In early February 2008, at the beginning of my traipse into a world of make-believe, I had ESP. How cool is that? I talked with people in my head. Powerful people. Bill and Melinda Gates. The Dalai Lama. Oprah Winfrey. My (then) bosses. All of these people and more were at my beck and call.
Then there was my job situation. In my fantasy world, my (real) boss, via ESP, directed me to quit my (real) job. So I did. Then, via ESP, he begged for my return, promising me more money and better control over my job. In the meantime, Bill and Melinda Gates offered me a job at The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. For twice the money.
And yet money had no real value. I had access to Bill and Melinda Gates’ money. I had a friend who was a time traveler who could make it so that I had money whenever I wanted it. Because money meant nothing, I wrote a (NSF) check for a beautiful, gold, brand new Lexus Convertible car. Bill and Melinda Gates were going to reimburse me for the purchase as part of my new employment package. I bought a new wardrobe for my new job.
I owned $2 million in jewelry, including a 3 carat yellow diamond in a platinum setting, and an abalone bracelet that had once been owned by my (Mermaid) grandmother.
I talked with trees, dogs, and cats.
Last but not least, I was a genuine Mermaid. Fish talked to me (literally). I had fins for feet. I had a beautiful tail.
I was beautiful. I was energetic. I was wealthy.
Now tell me that mental illness is terrible.
