“Don’t all crazy people think they’re the rational ones?”

Overall, this story is an interesting metaphor for mental illness and how it can feel like the monster in our lives. I also think it’s like how helpless people we love or who love us feel when they see us hurting or feeling the pain of mental illness. As a horror story, I didn’t feel more than chilled. I think that this author does a great job building up to the reveals. I also think that the message board post format is unique and kept me reading. I will say that I guessed pretty early on what was likely going on, considering the genre. THAT being said, it was still an entertaining read and made me think about mental illness from a unique light.
