Can other people drive you LITERALLY Crazy?

do you think if you grow up with some one or marry some one crazy that they could eventually just drive you nuts or do you think if that happens the spouse/family member already was crazy before hand but that person brought it out?? i ask this because there are always some people you know that have a crazy family member or some one that is married to a crazy (i mean as in like paranoid, controlling, delusional, obsessive, etc etc) person and i always wonder if the person will eventually start thinking that the crazy person is making sense?? if craziness and a constant twisted outlook on reality is all they have and you live with that will you start feeling that is normal? or is the human psyche stronger than that?

I think crazy is all in your own head. You rather crazy or not, I don't think other people can make you crazy, even though Sconibear is working on driving me crazy.

some time when you start living with a person , and that guy is crazy , you may in turn get dragged to that persons mentality. This happens when you are very much impressed with him. But if we have a strong character they no one should able to change it.

yes, that's what has happened with me. I was not at all crazy before hand. But now that I have got married, my wife drives me crazy. I behave in a very peculiar way at times and afterward I don't know what to do about it.

I dont think so.....my ex husband was a bit that way..but I swear I will never be like him nor did I believe in some of the hogwash he came up with. I think if you are crazy you might attract someone who is also that way...but I dont' think there is enough influence to have you become just like them.

well a lot of people in my life I met are kind of crazy..but you know even they have their own views, points, ideas doing such crazy things at a time.. So according to me there is no such crazy people.. it all depends on individual.. I still have the contacts with those crazy people..& it is funny to deal with them.. But yes ofcourse all the time craziness is not entertaining & you need to be strict in such condition by controlling them..But fortunately I can handle them.. That may be because there is always some craziness in every individual..

Nope, never encountered such a situation before. And I am grateful that it is not happening either. Not a situation that I would like to be caught in. And I am sure many people also do not want to be. It is draining both mentally and physically to care for such a person. Not to mention that it is also financially draining as well. Medication, counselling, check ups... etc the fees easily adds up!

hi there. a lot of people do things that get into our nerves. example of those things are betrayal, abuse, dishonesty, infidelity, sloth, murder etc. the list can go and on. when these things happen to us, what will make us crazy is how we are going to deal with it. if we dont have a healthy outlook in life the tendency is to break down. that's why we have these NERVOUS BREAKDOWN illness. if not treated, it will result to insanity. that's what you call LITERALLY Crazy. but if we know how to deal our problems, i think you will not go crazy.
