Three years would not constitute most of his life. Ed was on disability since he was discharged from post WWII in the late 40's, after being a gunner in the Navy . That's when he began painting dinner plates and signs and eventually his own ghoulish "pieces of art'," which now adorn a museum...his own that is, in the Warren Occult Museum of unholy artifacts or the "Halloween Room," as it was called before they started charging people admission to come in contact with supposed demonic items that could curse, hex, demonize, possess, ruin, and destroy the very lives of anyone that touched, or even thought
about them...all for a mere $12.00. Of course that price has skyrocketed into absurdity since the late 80's, just so a brave (or foolish) soul can spend an afternoon putting their lives and souls in mortal danger (what a great bargain!). Ed would even cast the white aura of Christ's light on you after he took your money and had you sign a ridiculous waiver...if he even remembered to do so.
While I have a very good idea what his disability was from speaking to people that have worked closely with him, including a former agent, an author who reluctantly penned one of their books, another well known author who refused to write for them after spending an enlightening week him and Lorraine, and my own personal experiences with him, his exact disability remains "elusive" to even the most diligent researcher thanks to HIPPA laws and the fact certain persons would love to have the opportunity to sue me on the tiniest technicality which they could consider libel, slander, or worse; something they are constantly searching for. I can confirm that he did indeed have a disability, and while most said it was a certain mental disorder (which I firmly and 100% believe), there is no definitive proof of the exact condition that can be legally disclosed at this present time. It is very obvious he suffered from no physical ailments, so you have to put 2 and 2 together without me doing the math. I have no proof
to show at this time so you simply have take what I say however you wish. Do a little research and you just may discover the answer yourself.
Now that's not breaking any laws...is it guys? Sorry if I disappointed any of you.
