Are mental patients a danger to society?

That look of disdain.  The way they wipe the sweat away, like they are truly scared of you.  You ask yourself, “What the heck did I do wrong?”

The person is shaky and tense.  You can hear it in their voices and see their hands shaking.  I have seen doctors who were afraid of me, one had BO even.  I could see the reflection of the overhead lights in his tense brow. I told myself how stupid it all was, that I surely wasn’t going to attack the dude, but he was acting like he was dealing with explosive chemicals and he had to be very, very careful otherwise, POOF! I’d attack him.

I mean, really, that was stupid.  He sectioned me.  I couldn’t believe it.  This was a long time ago and I still cannot believe he considered me “dangerous.”
