I arrive here today hopeful that the long journey seeking a cure is at it's end, or that I will at least find peace.
My condition is severe.. manifesting itself with numerous symptoms 'normal people' cannot understand such as:
I... keep... multiple flashlights in: my vehicle, my desk at my office, my workshop, my living room, my kitchen, my garage, and even my sleeping area at all times.
2. Obsessive Compulsive Recharging of Flashlight Battery Syndrome-
This is of course my own self diagnosis since many in the medical community lack the insight to acknowledge this often misunderstood affliction, but as some of you may know it is very real.
3. Lust for power-
Over the years I have built up a very high tolerance to it and constantly find myself needing more.. I can always easily impress my buddies with nothing more than a 9P/P91 combo, but that hasn't been able to get the monkey off my back for a long time.
These are just a part of my plight.
There's also the financial impact of the habit. Luckily, I've never had to choose between flashlights or food.. yet.
The gateway for me was a Streamlight Stinger I experimented with years ago.. seemed harmless at the time, but now I wonder how things would have turned out if I'd not gone down that road. I must find my way back.
Can you help?
