Jacob is 15 years old, and he's a freshman in high school... again. He has an IQ somewhere in the 140s. He also has ADD, bipolar disorder, and possibly some form of high-functioning autism.
The tone of this journal is in no way indicative of the treatment Jacob receives at home. At home, he is treated with kindness and patience. This journal was created as a place for me to vent. That way, I won't kill him. You don't want me to kill him, right?
Jake's antics and adventures are presented in a way that makes them seem amusing. I do this purposely. If everyone can laugh about it, then I won't kill him. You don't want me to kill him, right?
