The Riot of Our Minds

In his novel A Portrait of An Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce described the angst of his protagonist:

“. . . a faint sickness sighed in his heart . . . [He was] battling against the squalor of his life and the riot of his mind.”

The riot of his mind.

I feel like Joyce was describing me.
