Are you taking any medication?
‘It helps ward off the incipient insanity.’
Is this something you should talk to a doctor about?

That’s the difference between writing and living. You can always add things later to a written work, but in real life you rarely get a second chance. (Until somebody else asks me the same question, that is. Then I’ll be ready.)
