First a financial expert, then a relationship expert, and now a medical expert. You truly are a renaissance man dude.

I can guarantee that my understanding of psychology (which is what mental stability falls under) outpaces yours tenfold. It would be the same for anyone btw. The input from our brains is the least reliable source on how your brains are doing. An unbiased outside source is far more reliable.

And senior financial advisers invented the sub prime loan. Maybe they're not the most reliable guys in the room.

A part of you has to be saying good riddance. Let LA watch them disappoint year after year...

Those bitches stole the Clippers, too

The Clippers could have some respectability in SD instead of being the LA Fakers. You left the Celtics, Pats, and the Red Sox. ****ing hell. And the Bruins. Damn.

I've been living with a mentally unstable son for 10 years and studying psychology the entire time. How many NAMI meetings have you attended? How many books have you read on the subject? How much online research have you done? How many degreed medical specialists have you sat down one on one with and talked at length? Lecture me on lots of things but know when to step back. You've known me long enough by now.

Flippant arrogance is ugly.

Ya, good point. The Raiders vs Chargers rivaly (gang war) will take on a new twist, that's for sure.

So you have a hyperspecific understanding of one psychological disorder. How much do you know about cognitive biases? How many college level psychology courses have you taken? I still guarantee I have a better understanding of the field than you do, even though you might have an understanding of something that directly affects you (hmmm...reminds me of something I said earlier).

Mods, can you change the thread title to "What are Chula and Frownland fighting over now?" please?

Have you ever had a real bout of any kind of mental illness? Whether or not your brain knows it's falling off the rails is kind of case by case. You might think you're all good and really be ****ed but I've spent a lot of time thinking nah this ain't right. I never could afford decent mental health care but when I came in saying I don't think this is normal the only things I heard doctors and counselors and psychologists say is you have yadda yadda disorder and you need a psychiatrist. I'm trying to say that at a certain point you can self-diagnose some mental disorders or at least that something is wrong. Like if your heart is racing and you're crying all the time and imagining how your brains would look splattered on the wall every ten minutes you can figure something is misfiring up there.

Obviously the brain can be aware and it is very case by case, but because nobody ever knows whether or not they're an idiot and a brain seeing life through the filter of a disorder is not a reliable one, I'm gonna go with my original theory that you shouldn't trust yourself as objective.

That's the only part of your post I'm challenging. I think often part of your brain can **** up and another part can warn you.
