Mania:
I keep at least 5 cans of Bumblebee tuna fish in the cupboard at all times.
I refold laundry that has been folded incorrectly - even dish towels.
If I am excited, I clap my hands three times. If I am frustrated, I pound my fist on the desk three times.
I rearrange the contents of my bathroom cabinet at 1 in the morning, after three hours of sleep the night before.
I will vomit before I will eat beef or chicken fat.

I run endlessly inside my head, a separate person with a crazed agenda, while my rational self picks out socks to wear to work. I spend hours obsessing over things I don't care about, I spend a split second making a decision about something important.
