well, yeah, man. it’s all true. the reason we have people romanticize shit like that is because people make it out to be a gateway to sheer brilliance and creativity. it’s not. mental illness impairs your ability to feel and even function properly. i’ve read places that, for example, people with obsessive-compulsive disorder typically have higher IQs, but that could simply be due to introversion and high attention to detail. people are creative, imaginative, and intelligent, because of who they are as people. drugs and mental illness don’t MAKE you somebody. in syd’s case, he was always extraordinarily brilliant, witty, artistic, and gifted, simply because those are adjectives you’d use to apply to his character, anyway.
