I have been on anti-seizure meds for my bipolar disease and I live a normal or as normal it can get for a crazy person. So, I'm not sure what normal is. Normal apparently means different things to different people. Philosophically, what is normal? Anyway, I hope I didn't confuse you as much as myself.
