Is there is something wrong with the Mathematicians or the Mathematics?
I think what one does in the bed is a private matter.
Turing struggled to communicate properly.Some of his interviews are crazy.How do you explain that?
The following documentary explains the rest:http://bestdocumentaries.blogspot.com/2007/09/dangerous-knowledge-full-documentary.html [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]
:-)the stress is a sign of social disorder.You are right ,some professions are stressful.But what is wrong with mathematics?Isnt it enjoyable?Isnt it the subject they enjoyed and society by and large supported?(the system spoiled them)But why suicide?not only turing but all the great names which mentioned committed suicide.Gauss also had plans!!
It is beyond the play of simple words.The problem is with Mathematics. This was acknowledged by Einstein as well.
But that's not just true of mathematics. You can only ever disprove.
Physical sciences are based on observation, and so inherently cannot be self contained.
