I was not a successful adolescent.  I seemed strange to the other children and they were nasty to me.  I became quite withdrawn and then I became severely anorexic, which is why I was taken out of high school, even though my plans for myself were all intellectual. I thought, “I’m going to be an artist and I’m going to be naturally a professor.”  But the professor part happened in a sort of back-door way.  It was a very, very, very important event for me, because it got me into psychoanalysis, which became important to my thought.  I feel as though I learned how to think in psychoanalysis.  And I recovered a self that could be in the world.
