*My degree is in Fiction Writing, so I am qualified to write depressing short stories, not dole out psychiatric advice. This website is no substitute for real help. You probably pieced this together from the presence of the cartoon forest creatures, but my lawyers insisted I include this disclaimer. (My lawyers are imaginary, but in my imagination, they have excellent degrees and charge $500 an hour, which I have no problem paying due to my bathtub full of gold.) Please categorize this website as “an unsolicited soliloquy from a caring stranger with whom you have struck up an oddly personal conversation at a bus stop.”
