"Most people think that I’m rude, odd, strange, and maybe even scary. Most people think that I am unstable and that I cannot take care of myself. This may be true, but I know I’m not like others. I know I’m not perfect, and I know I have problems, and I know I can get upset, but someone has to live a life like mine."

Old man: I fall down too!
