That is all.
I'm referring to mental illness.
although being crazy can be a good thing too.
Jim Morrison was crazy... 'nuf said!
I rode a bicycle from portland oregon, to san diego, over to el paso, north to telluride colorado, and back to the west coast by way of southern utah, and through nevada to tahoe...
One of several similar jaunts back then...crazy for sure
This one time, I was in class and hadn't slept for 4 days- the instructor called on me to answer him and I just sat there, staring at the board; mumbling "It's all shit. All fake shit. All this stuff." < I had no idea what I was saying. I was pretty much comatose for the next 2 days until I finally passed out for a week.>
Apparently he liked my answer. It led him into a big discussion about commercialism in modern society ---- and I got a %100 mark in his class on every assignment we had after that day, even though I swear I had no clue wtf was going on.
My temporary insanity was a good thing, then.
I made an old hippy quite happy.
Good for the crazies...
but for serious; mental illnesses fuck everyone up.
I don't even understand how people think half the shit they think anymore- I just can't fathom any of it in my tiny brain. Makes me feel pretty helpless.
Errr ok, i guess making a tower our of twinkies isnt that bad afterall. laters
I'm still exhausted from my last sleepless night, Sunday night, and it looks like another night of mania-induced insomnia. :|
I used to hate being crazy, viewing my bipolar as a huge and heavy shackle around my neck dragging me down. Now, I just don't care.
I don't use that term "crazy"..... Don't really identify bipolar as crazy. I guess if I don't claim it, then I'm not crazy.
I may have a chemical imbalance, be depressed, have anxiety, have trouble coping with stress, somewhat less creative, but certainly not a crazy individual.
The NAMI slogan years ago was 'I have bipolar, but bipolar doesn't have me'.
