I'm Not OK, I Just Think I'm OK ...

My pal Rick pointed me to a web site for the pharmaceutical Havidol that offers a self-assessment to determine whether one suffers from Dysphoric Social Attention Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder (DSACDAD). Concerned friend that he is, he suggested that I might want to take the test.

My result and the "key" to the test, copied directly from the site:

Your score is 29.

If your score falls between 40-60 you should see your doctor immediately.

If your score is between 30-40 you may be on the brink of succumbing to DSACDAD. Be aware of this possibility and be prepared by discussing your options with your doctor.

If your score falls between 15-30 take a moment to check in with yourself. Determine if you are answering as truthfully as possible. It's okay to need help. And thankfully help is available.

So, there you have it: I'm not really OK, I'm just lying to myself.

If you'll excuse me, I have to go crawl into bed now.

P.S. Yes, it's a joke.
