How things work

I have Asperger’s syndrome and due to some psychopaths I ended up in psychiatry.

When people end up in psychiatry later in life, their relationships tend to fall apart. They’re single. Then you have to look for someone who will work with you despite the problems. Often another psychiatric patient.

When you start off in psychiatry at a younger age, things are even worse. I live in a city which prides itself on being a ‘student city’. Students are entirely worthless to a psychiatric patient. They don’t want to work with you on your problems.

There is no way this is going to change. It’s just the way it is.

Some people seem to think shouting “discrimination!” will change things. It won’t.

I tried some Eritrean food a few weeks ago. It was horrible. The cook thought it was the saffron.

I know a doctor who used to work in Africa, he hated the food as well.

We hate African food. Is that discrimination? It’s horrible, sorry. I don’t care what you call it.
