  •  Why the ad hominem? (0+ / 0-)

    Why preface all these fine thoughts with a personal attack – in fact one where you go into my profile, cherrypick a biographical detail, and then use it to anchor an insult to a perfect stranger?  Much of what you're saying here reiterates the points I attempted to make rather than contradicting them. If you read what I wrote more closely, you'll see that I was critiquing the narrative of 'snapping', not confirming it.

    We could probably have a decent conversation given that, prior to a life in software, I spent several years working in psychiatric nursing, and have dealt with cases of depression both vocationally and in terms of family and friends. But the ugliness of how you began your commentary makes me hesitate.
