Why You’re More Normal Than You Think

I was on twitter yesterday morning, and tweeted, Does anyone else flip between ‘I can conquer the world’ and ‘world please leave me alone I can’t deal’? Ah, the vicissitudes of life… It was a kind of absent minded tweet (as are most of my tweets) just chattering about how I was feeling about trying to juggle a few life issues.  Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m unattractively insecure and firmly believe I am unique in my various neuroses.
