I have social skills, but choose to play games. A lot of you appear to lack social skills, and have no choice but play games, because you can't function in any other settings. You, however, appear to be almost normal, aside from your over-inflated view of yourself.
I love how you always put the family thing in peoples faces. Congrats. You found a girl who can tolerate you and was willing to actually let you inseminate her.....twice. You know what I love about people who throw their perfect family life in other peoples faces. It's seeing how a lot of their lives degrade to utter garbage years later. Kids have issues. Animosity between the husband and wife to the point that intimate relations occur every year or so and only when both are drunk. How about the lack of actually having individual hobbies and interests because the kids suck the life out of you. Yay. You are giving up about 20 to 25 years of your life for what? Those kids are going to leave someday and you are going to wonder where the best years of your life went. You'll also be legally tied to a woman that you probably haven't really loved in 15 or more years. Then you get divorced and are living in some slum apartment because you are shelling out a load of cash to support some woman who is getting her satisfaction from some dude 20 years younger than you. That doesn't sound too great to me.
That being said. I'll take my life. Self employed business owner for going on 9 years. Make a lot of money. Come and go as I please. I can pack my bag tonight and either be in the mountains of N. Carolina tomorrow or the Florida Keys and not have to think twice about doing it or how much it costs. Or I can get really adventurous and just book a last minute flight to anywhere I want to go for the weekend. Yeah.. I can do any of those things any weekend I want. Heck, maybe I'll just tell my clients I'll be out next week and catch a last minute cruise. That is called living. Not what YOU are doing. I've run half marathons, climbed more mountains than I can count, backpacked more miles I can count, ocean kayaked and camped on uninhabited islands, and have pretty much done more interesting stuff at 40 than most people ever get to do. Living isn't raising 2 brats and pretending like that somehow makes you accomplished. Living is being on the top of a mountain in the dead of winter with a blizzard rolling in and 70mph wind practically taking you off your feet.
You aren't the only one who lives 5 minutes from the ocean, pal :-) I have salt water at the end of my street.
Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric illness that is characterized by episodes of “mania.” Symptoms include euphoria, distractibility, irritability, and grandiosity. During a manic episode, people often have remarkable energy and move, think, and talk rapidly. They sleeplittle but do not appear to be tired. They may also experience delusions such as the belief that they are able to fly or are Jesus or another famous person. They may be suspicious that people are out to harm them. During a manic episode, some people hear voices or see visions. Severe depressive episodes are also often part of bipolar disorder.
Schizophrenia is an illness characterized by a group of so-called “positive” symptoms that may include hallucinations (hearing voices, seeing visions), delusions (fixed false beliefs), and/or a thought disorder (speech that makes little sense). Words are spoken, but the connections between sentences or paragraphs are illogical. (This is called a formal thought disorder.) Also, people with schizophrenia often exhibit “negative” symptoms where they become uninterested in interacting with others, lose the ability to take pleasure in previously enjoyed activities, talk less, and exhibit a demeanor that is rather flat or without much expressiveness.
Psychiatrists often see patients with a mixture of the above symptoms, and it may be difficult to determine whether a patient has schizophrenia or bipolar disorder even after following him or her for many years. Such patients may receive a diagnostic label of schizoaffectivedisorder, bipolar type.
