A Great Excuse

At least I now know that if I get out of my car and beat the crap out of lousy drivers, I am now justified. It's great, isn't it? We now have excuses for almost anything.
"Your Honor, I know what I did is wrong, but I have Intermittent Explosive Disorder."
"You have bowel issues?"
"No, Your Honor, I have anger."
"Oh...then case dismissed."
Now of course it won't go this way, but it's just another excuse.
When I was a kid, being hyper was being a kid. You had some sugar, and you ran around until you were tired. Now that's ADHD.
We have too many disorders and too many drugs for them.
Look at the article. They recommend drugs for this disorder too. I'm not surprised. Drug companies can make a ton of money if everything you do is wrong.
Did I mention I also have ILD? Yup, Intermitten Laughing Disorder. I just seem to find things funny and laugh out loud everyonce in a while. Maybe I need to get depressants....
