> agreed... any tips on how to feel connected again? get a couple girlfriends?

unfortunately to get a couple of girlfriends one has to get first a couple of Klonopin. it's a vicious circle ;-)

> also the opposite seems true. if you're very clever people will find you strange (most people have an average IQ, by definition) and that could bring mental problems.

I can understand how you feel. I was luckier because when I was at elementary school I was treated like a kind of genius by my father and my teacher. I think I have internalized this belief and this helped me with the self-esteem in the department of cleverness even when I was depressed and completely dumb. But of course this brought me a lot of problems in other fields ...

Anyway I can easily understand the sensation of seeing a lot of problems when most of people don't see anything ... a partial solution for me was to find a couple of friends that can appreciate my being sharp and weirdo at the same time ... but it was not easy at all (and your boss isn't likely to be one of them ;-)

though i think if you are insecure you encourage people to treat you badly ...... unless they are insecure too

this is dramaticaly true. I had been "mobbed" by my phd-tutor for a couple of months. one day I took an anafranil pill and I shouted at him for half an hour. I wouldn't say this solution was elegant ... but now he's a little more careful when he talks to me ;-)

... i hear psychopaths (the law-abiding kind) have the most fun ......

No Super-Ego at all just Id. Lot of fun : )

i'd like to think that anyone who a) is a genius and, b) has been toughened up by having to deal with a mental illness, should be in one of the best positions to succeed in life (however you may define success) ...

this really thrills me. I have had the same thought ! I think also that mental illness make you more empthatic toward 'week' people ... you have been there so you can understand them ... maybe mental illness makes you left-oriented ;-)
