• Perhaps we’re even frightened when we encounter
    the mentally ill patient

    I think you misunderstand. We vary as much as any
    other demographic. Jews, for instance.

    I am not sure what you intend by “patient.” While I
    am a partient, I am also a retired German teacher and editor. And husband,
    father, brother, son…it is along list.
