Tell us about yourself.
I'm not crazy, but I am not mentally healthy. Mine is a biolgoical problem perpetuatee by infectious illness, so unfortunately therapy and even medication have little or not effect. I still do both however, because little or nothing is better than flat-out...nothing.
Gotta make an effort, can't just sit back let myself be unhappy, it's not in my nature.
Everyone is crazy in their own way, honestly. Nobody is "normal".
I wouldn't say I'm crazy but I certainly have some issues with my mental health that I need to sort out. The average person's idea of crazy is psychosis and as far as I am aware, I do not have any psychotic disorders so I don't consider myself "crazy"
I agree with Deadhead. Most people have "issues" that they're constantly in process of working thru in their own way, but actual insanity or crazy is not a term applicable to most people unless they have severe mental illness that causes them to be a danger to themselves or society. Simply being suicidal doesn't determine insanity, nor depression.
Crazy thus is a "popular" term that is obsolete, and in the medical and scientific world a term which is absurd.
