All the time -to question 8.
I enjoyed the article short as it was. I have always believed there to be a link between genuis and madness, extreme creativity and (some) mental health disorders. Begging the question of weather it is so unhealthy to have madness or mental health disorders. I think within the confines of society, like so many other things, the gifts are often blighted by the opinions and actions of others.
Of course, as always, there are exceptions.
