>Do you think I am a person with problems?

Do you have a lot of regrets?
Are you uncertain?
Are you frightened?
(This might be a conversation about how people feel about fear?)

People who have problems are people who think they do.
If you don't think you have them you don't.
Isn't the world nice and simple?

There is only a faint connection (none at all really) between your question and what follows.
Here there is some kind of conspiracy to make sure that every social encounter is entered into with an agreed lie (in which I prefer not to participate).
Anyway, everyone knows how you feel. That's why I never ask.
I blame my response on Lou Reed, who sang
'And it was allriiiiiiight,
It was allriiiiiight'
in such an attractive and sarcastic manner that ever after, when asked
'How are you?'
at the beginning of a social encounter, I reply
'Allright'
which may perhaps amuse me but does not satisfy them.
They ask
'Allright good?'
and I reply
'Allright allright'

When people meet where you are, do they insist that everyone say they feel great?
When my mother was almost completely dead with cancer and seeing the doctor, he would say
'And how are you?'
and she would say
'Fair to middling'.

In a William Burroughs novel, people who smoke pot yell out
'I got the fear'
and run out of the room.

I've wanted to do that for years.
