Well, let me [of course, you know, it's...Jan] say this about that, or that about this...'What is this BIG problem about being NUTS anyway?' That's really weird. Mental Illness IS a disease...NOT a behavior flaw or problem. Would anyone ever think of treating a person with, let's say a broken leg like 'our society' does the 'so-called' mentally ill?
Just look.... Isn't everyone an unique individual? There's NO ONE anywhere in all of life exactly, like you or me, is there? Why expect everyone or anyone to be the same as you. Who says what's crazy? I've read alot about artists, musicians, actors, and writers, while doing this site...you know....those special VERY CREATIVE folks in our lives...seems like many of them don't fit the sane standard allowed by the normal social thinking of this planet, ..thank goodness they don't. They are many of my heros, AND it's so sad that their lives were or are made even more difficult, lonely, and confusing by being taught by our society that it's a disgrace somehow to experience whatever they're experiencing and is confusing and hurting them, and their very own fears of getting help and being labeled by the world, teaches them to avoid all treatment. Many are home-less, penny-less, avoided even by their families, and/or afraid..and they still avoid any treatment what-so-ever.
It's very difficult to be 'nuts' in this social environment...meaning on earth. so-called 'Crazy' People are feared, avoided and, others justify the mis-treatment or abuse given to anyone different or 'stranger' than themselves. .Why? NOW, That's REALLY crazy, don't you think?.Jan
I was mis-diagnosed as mental ill in 1994, I lived with the 'mentally ill' for almost a year, they are just people, like you and me and are my friends. In 1999, the doctors said...Whoops,.. that was just the beginning of M.S. not mental illness....WOW...BUT, fortunately it was too late for me, I liked those 'nuts' I had met in the 'loony bin. They were my friends, and still are to this very day. Jan.
Don't be afraid...get the facts: For more about mental illness or to get help, start by reading about N.A.M.I or the NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL ILLNESS.
