But I really feel there isn't a definative answer...certainly a doctor could classify someone as being insane, but are they right? Well my
grandmother was classified insane, but that was before they bothered to run test to find out she had a huge and rare tumour growing within her
brain...so they had her on all sorts of medicine prior. I thought she was too..because when a grown woman wakes at 3am and boils 2 dozen eggs for NO
reason...well..that's a little off the wall!
I think for the most part you aren't considered normal if you don't think like everyone else..but has society done this to us? Do we really all
think 'crazy' thoughts and only few actually share or talk about them? I know there are times when we all think of something and say " That's just
crazy, I need to not even think about that"...but the question is...why? Because 'others' would think you had gone over the deep end, or it's so
imbedded in our heads that thinking abstractly could 'clinicly define us as nuts'...
I have studied insanity and all the classifications as well and seriously, with everything said and written..we are all nuts, some just worse then
others..some cannot control themselves and some can, that's my opinion anyway..
I can look at every single person that I've ever known and find something 'crazy' about them(as far as books and doctors go) Get this..I read that
if you drink coffee..your crazy or if you smoke or if you get angry when you drive..or if you have nightmares or if you don't like certain foods, the
list goes on and on arc, and this was in a medical book, written by 'doctors'...
Good topic though arc
and also one of my favorites..
