          What It’s Like For Young Man Who Says His Mind ‘Overpowers’ Him


          February 24, 2017

          Brandon says he feels misunderstood by many people, including his parents with whom he lives.

          “My parents don’t understand how my mind works. It’s über creative and it overpowers me,” he says. “It’s hard being persecuted for what you can’t help.”

          The 35-year-old admits he likes to wear superhero costumes and go on nighttime vigilante missions.

          “One of my pastimes is light-saber fighting,” he says. “Sometimes when I’m in the backyard, it’s a place to run free, to not be judged by anybody. If I want to have a light saber fight at night, do it. That’s cool.”

          However, his parents say he is a lazy moocher who refuses to grow up. They claim he sleeps all day and has destroyed parts of their home with spray paint. They say living with him is unbearable and they’re at their wits’ end.

          “I want them to understand that I have to create. I customize my entire life. I have to be artistic. I’m consistently over-analyzing things and thinking of ideas,” Brandon says. “Sometimes, I am selfish. I do what I want to do when I want to do it. It’s a revolving door of chaos. I don’t feel like I get any peace. So many times I just want to be left alone.”
