Crazy And Other Such WordsPeople use the term crazy to define mental illness. I don't believe that is an accurate term to use. Mental illness is a true illness. It has many different forms and the symptoms vary from person to person. It is not something that you can slap a label on and call someone crazy who has a true medical problem.
Crazy is usually an irrational behavior that teenagers and husbands suffer from (wink).
True mental illness is a chemical imbalance that needs medication. Other mental illnesses may not need strong doses of medication but might require intensive talk therapy or other therapies to help correct the imbalance include temporary depression, shock, mild schizophrenia and mind/body image disorders.
There are times when we are all a little crazy. But that temporary break out of behavior is necessary to move you out of a rut.
That has nothing to do with people who have serious mental illnesses.
