I like IsoM's response.

I don't think I've ever been asked that directly and my mood and how the question was asked would determine my answer.

1. I knew you liked me.
2. Run away screaming and waving my arms wildly.
3. I knew you were a brutha when I saw you
4. Did you just ask me if I had a mental illness or did I just hear it in my head?
5. No, I take 12 pills a day because they're pretty.
6. Yes
7. No
8. You tawkin to me?
9. Why, are you wanting to help?
10. I suffer from depression which is controlled by medication and therapy. I and 18,000,000 other Americans and many millions of people all over the world. Here are some 'friends' of mine:
