I don't want to become lost and forgotten.






I don't know if it's because I suffer from Paranoid Schizophrenia or not but I've always have had a great deal of empathy for people who struggle with various mental illnesses. Of course, I'm no doctor and I don't make it a habit of diagnosing people but for some reason I think I'm able to read individuals that I come across in my daily life. I remember once I worked the graveyard shift as a motel desk clerk when I was around eighteen years old. It was a rather big complex that had over two hundred rooms and at least fifty apartment units. I was the only person on duty from 11pm until 7am and it was in a very seedy part of Long Beach, CA. At the time, I was also a full time student and that was the only reason I worked at such an unpleasant place, with less then perfect hours. I would check in all types of people and a lot of people from out of town because there was a small commercial airport nearby. One night a guy came into the office around midnight and struck up a conversation with me. I could instantly tell that he wasn't all there but I knew that I should remain affable. From experience, when I've dealt with people who are obviously having mental issues, you should never laugh or make them feel uneasy. I believe you will never have a problem, as long as you treat them with respect. Having my own issues at the time, I listened as he explained to me that he was actor that made motion pictures with Chuck Norris. He then grabbed a magazine off the table in our office that had two jets flying side by side. He explained that he was in the aircraft in the front, while Sylvester Stallone tailed him. Part of me laughed a little inside and I know that wasn't a nice thing to do, but I managed to hear me out, as he went on to tell me that I should marry his daughter because I was being so nice to him. He then asked me to call him a cab, so I obliged and did as he asked. When the taxi arrived he walked out of the office and waved good bye. I remember spending the rest of the night thinking about the man and wondering what will happen to him. He was a lost soul and he didn't seem to have anyone to lookout for his best interest. Then I thought about my own situation and I got a little scared. Would I ever be in his shoes one day? I sat down in my chair and prayed to God that I never become so lost and forgotten.
