Being an Artist, Writer, and, Romantic in Recovery, I often fail to take the Crazy-Making Reality Test, I so ready to come in with my Bleeding Heart and my Sonnets. So, here are the four questions I ask when I am truly confounded about what’s going down, and, what the _ _ _ _ has gone wrong!
1. Are drugs involved?
2. Is alcohol involved?
3. Is mental illness a factor?
4. All of the above?
Damn it! I’m a newspaper man! I’m going to put these questions on a stick-up, and put them on my computer – in my face!
