Sadly, you don't know what "normal" means. When applied to life it's a synonym for "common" or "typical" not for "this is what it should be." The only time it means "this is what it should be" is when applied to machines. Are you a machine?

An abnormal personality would reside in a person beleiving that they have the right to decide by board meetings and raise your hand exceptance of what constitutents abnormal behavior. The mental health industry has no science. No medical model. No evidence based medicine. Notest for chemical imbalance and no imaginimgmresult to detect a normal brain from a abnormal brain. The mental health industry isnbased on hearsay and politically motivated.

Protect your love ones and your child againt mind drugging.

Stop the excessive mind drugging that pollute the underground water for bathing and drinking and cause mental side effects and crimes that a person normally would have never done.
