I'm Weird Too...I was brought up an only child by a hysterical, drunken mother. Oh, and she was agoraphobic, too, so I never learned the "right" way to relate to people. I have alienated every friend I've ever had, and lost countless jobs, but my defense mechanisms are so fixedly in place, that I can't "really" see myself as others see me, so don't seem to be able to fix anything.
Amazingly, in spite of this, I was able to marry, and I have two kids - the girl and I don't get along (small wonder, huh?), but my boy is really easy-going so we have a great relationship.
I can really relate to that "running with scissors" guy, Augustin Burroughs, because I feel like I'm from another planet too...
