Oh, the pharmaceutical cartel is nothing if not thorough. I'm sure that 'dentist' fellow and a group of flunkies went thru every word, making sure no spot was missed. It had to be convincing or Clark's readers wouldn't 'buy' it. *cha-ching*
And you know mental conditions are caused by mental dysfunction, rarely by any kind of toxin--that creates whole other symptomology. But average mental dysfunction comes from a bad childhood, abusive relationships (usually because of bad childhoods), beaten down mentally by bad parents etc. Obviously you had some care giver who was not very good, who you had to manipulate and lie to all the time or get beaten or rejected constantly--probably had to talk them out of molesting you again, too. That really teaches young children to desperately manipulate others.
But I can only speculate based on children and bad caregivers I dealt with in a counseling setting. It's never too late to get help though.
Until you get that help, I pity anybody around you---if you're this manipulative, dishonest and vicious here I'm sure they're skills you use on the people around you every day. Man--- anybody desperate enough to hang around you are either sooo damaged already, and think they deserve to be treated like this, or they don't even hang around long.
Thank goodness I only have to put up with your dysfunctional personality here!
