Yes, I'm not talking about red face mad. More experimental. How much madness can you actually handle?

Barking mad is mad enough.

AugustusMasonicus for about 20 minutes is about as much as I can handle. You can't get any more madness than that guy.

In bed or in my own head? Serious question.

That is for you to figure out, not me.

Ohhh....on the boards you mean. Well, we probably won't kick you out if that's your concern. Kray-Kray away!

I can handle a lot of crazy, as long as it's my craziness. 👻

If it's mad anger, that's unhealthy. Bad stuff. Stroke out possibility. 🤕

Mad anger or crazy from others, I try to walk away 🐾🐾🐾🐾

Well, I dated this girl for a couple years who had some obscene OCD. She needed almost 2 hours every day before she could leave the house or she thought catastrophe would strike. We finally went on vacation and I was on the beach enjoying myself and she was still back at the room doing her 'rituals' and praying. That was pretty much the end for me at that point.

That's how much crazy I can handle.

Guess we would't realize in case we can't, that's the moment you go completely bonkers. So why bother?

Everyone gets mad once in a while. What you do when you are mad is the important part. I actually get a lot stronger when I get mad. I have often made myself mad so I could move something really heavy. It must do something that increases a chemical in the muscles or something.

Worked in the mental health/addictions sector for over two decades now.
Started as a Psychiatric Assistant while training to become a CompRN (though predominately Psychiatric Nurse) on acute inpatient wards, then Community Psychiatric Nurse...though currently a semi-retired Clinical Psychologist now enjoying being a dairy farmer of all things...

So...if you're referring to mad as in 'madness'...then yeah reasonably high tolerance, patience, experience and humanistic compassion for it...people are people are people...and people are awesome in their vibrancy of life's experiences...

Hey thank you.


Do wish to also add that when it comes to 'madness' - just from my own perspective and experience - view the rather hard and fast definitions of it to be pretty inhuman and inhumane...so often a person's supposed 'madness' is merely an understandable response to some pretty intense situations.
Personally view it such a humbling privilege for someone to share their inner/outer world with you and allow you to walk alongside them on their journey - if anything my most heartfelt thanks go to all those whose footsteps I got to share.


Not a big fan of diagnostic criterion and diagnoses - despite working in the field and having diagnosed individuals myself numerous times. Would rather focus on any distress caused by whatever they experience...as opposed to any potential diagnostic 'label'.


Thanks again.

You really sound like the person who enlightened me with P. Watzlawicks "Pursuit of Unhappiness" that one day after helping to remember an old trauma during therapy.

The sort of epiphany you never forget, which is why I hold your profession in such high esteem.

Aren't we all a little mad? or so they say.

I'm not sure that anyone is 'madder' than the other. I think we all just live within our own madness of varying degrees and decide who or what we can live with/tolerate and who or what we can't. I can handle both but, my preference would be the mentally ill type of madness if I had to choose.

I've been exposed to both mentally ill (mad) and ridiculously angry (mad) and both have their tell tale signs in my opinion. I will tell you that I am less fearful of the mentally ill type of madness that overcomes some than the red faced angry type of madness that can occur.

I don't know if those are the answers you are looking for and it makes me a little angry that I don't know...


Where have you gone anyway?!
