That which deranges the senses - Deconstructing Sheri Tepper's 2008 Interview with Strange Horizons (this links to the start of that particular comment thread but you can also read the article about Sheri Tepper there).
If you had asked me ten years ago, I would have jumped at the chance to live a "normal" life. Now, however, having done all the work that I have to come to terms with who I am, what I can do and how I do it best, I would find it a very difficult decision. This is who I am, warts and all. If I could have a version of the 'treatment' that would remove or lessen some of the difficult stuff (e.g. my sensitivity to temperature extremes) and leave the creativity and so on then I would consider it.
What do you think? Would you take the cure if it might mean that you were now a totally different person(ality)?
