OneMan answered Sunday April 10 2005, 6:25 pm: Well, the work I do is simple. I deal with people with all forms of mental illnesses, commonly referred to as axis. I assess them, determine the root of their illness and if possible, try my best to help them cope with it as best as possible and lead a relatively "normal" life without the hinderances of their illness. The money is good, I won't tell you how much I make, but it varies from person to person. The bad is personal. What may be bad for me may not be true for you. I particularly hate to see people feeling helpless over something that can be helped and just "giving up. I also hate to see anything that afflicts the children. This weighs particularly heavy on me. But the good outweighs that when you see the relief on a persons face and knowing that you helped put it there. I think you'll be a good addition if you truly care about people and if there's anything I can do to help, let me know. [ OneMan's advice column | Ask OneMan A Question ]
