Of the two incredibly powerful videos at right -- one of Carly Fleishman with non-verbal autism & the other of Laci Green and her courageous personal message regarding depression --- In some ways, the person I have the most in common with is Carly. While I am certainly verbal and became so at a very young age, my impression is that I am flooded with much more emotion than the average person. I generally do not watch R-rated movies because they are just too much. One of the things that can trigger an "emotion flood" is some type of perceived injustice. I'm not sure that this is that different than anyone else, except that I usually like to be alone because it can also trigger my NOS (not otherwise specified) movement disorder or Tourette Syndrome or whatever the hell it is. Like Carly, I don't want to freak people out. Having said all that -- my experience is that all that Emotion tends to be Jet Fuel for Reason (or I like to think so). Unlike Laci Green --- I don't Isolate because I'm so depressed -- I need to be alone so that I can Think & Write or Decompress. What makes me feel better & I think makes most people feel better is ---- Finding the Fix & Implementing the Fix. State, you want me to feel better don't you --and I've done all the reasoning for you on the CO MI Olmstead Case -- Let's Say We Just Fix It! Shall We?
The book talks a lot about the importance of "Emotion" in the "Reasoning Process."
