  just because you cannot fathom the theoretical implications of your
  questions does not mean that those who do don't solve practical problems.
  think about this.  please.

  and, incidentally, if I have "made" you feel like an idiot, why not just
  do something that would put such impressions to _shame_ instead of going
  out of your way to _prove_ that you really _are_ hopelessly lost?

  I'm sure you and your shrink have worked something out that works for you
  (although by the looks of it, you have some ways to go), but just like he
  or she should have told you that you shouldn't give other people your
  medication, you also shouldn't believe that your personal problems apply
  to other people.

  but I'll give you this: you are indeed courageous.  I know of few other
  people who would expose themselves the way you do.  here's a hint: you
  really don't need to -- nobody cares about _you_, personally, and it's an
  affront to your audience, _any_ audience, to think they do.
