Personally, I did not find it offensive. However, I thought you were beating yourself up when I saw the title, and immediately wanted to offer encouragement. I hate to see anyone beat themselves up.

Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

It hit a nerve with me. I work with people who suffer from mental illness and derogatory terms like "retard" cut deep.

Anyway, thanks for changing the title.
