I don't know why you're avoiding answering this, Smith, but let me just say that I may be stalking you in the near future and would appreciate knowing what things to avoid.

You're embellishing a little, right? You caught some girl looking at you on the street, confronted her like a crazy person and killed her?

I am very inept at picking up the social cues that are commons and understood by society, but I am extremely good at reading the body language and cues that people do not intend to convey...although antisocial cues, if you will.

And as a hoarder, allow me to say that your mother should not have access to funds if her compulsion is an expensive one, as a hoarder can deplete finances like no tomorrow.
Pretty much what I was referring to was that. I was very active on Digg for while and whoo boy - I swear to holy heaven there are couple of paranoid schizophrenics off their meds. That's not a value judgement, BTW - the best personal assistant I ever had was schizophrenic. Some folks, however, are just easy to spot after 5 or 10 posts on Digg or whereever.

She does isolate, and she also clams up. As for the hoarding thing, there is absolutely nothing I can do.

Thanks so much for the response, because she's in my life a lot right now.

Smith you have interesting insights into yourself. But what about what others think? If you are looking through the eyes of outsiders at you, what do they see?
