As a doctor, I have the honor of hearing people's most personal stories. I haven't met a person yet who is entirely rational and totally together. We fake it a lot. We are all working toward being happy and productive in this life, and sometimes our moods or other mental problems get in the way. Join the club. You are not alone, and you are not abnormal.
