Dear World,

  1. "I" cannot be possessive. If you're trying to refer to something that belongs to you, use "my." IT'S OK TO USE "MY!" "I's" is wrong.
  2. If, in your sentence, someone or something is doing something to you, use "me." This is also OK and GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT! Here it functions as an object as it should.
  3. "Myself" is reflexive. It is used when you are doing an action to yourself. You may not substitute it for "I" or "me."
A good rule of thumb is to use "myself" when you have already (correctly) used "I" as the subject.

If alternate uses sound more formal, get over it.
