Dr. Janie Lee, Wow, that's an interesting list of symptoms. If having any more than a couple of these indicate mental illness then I'm a total fruit-cake. Actually, I don't think I know anyone who wouldn't qualify as mentally ill by this symptom list. I don't know why people dont' see through this disease-mongering propaganda. Sadly, my experience is that they often don't. Even worse, they find it their duty use such symptom lists to analyze everyone else.
