Mariano Both. I think the book presents in a lot of different ways, stories about individuals with serious mental issues. Some of them use drugs to escape them, some of them get them by using drugs, and some of them don't use drugs.
Joshua Gonsalves I always thought it was drug related, although it seems that he may have some slight mental issues as well.
