Some people think I'm a bit crazy...but in a good way. IN a courage sort of way... But i'm talking about real crazy. How do you define crazy? I think that someone is crazy when they don't react normally to certain stuff , like they are living in a different reality or get paranoid. What's your definition of crazy?

I heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result. I think that sums it up pretty good, but it doesn't define mental illness. Most of the people that I see defined as "crazy" are those who have definitely physical disorders in their nervous system where they just don't perceive reality in a way that is beneficial to them or others. They see perceive things that aren't real or true or they don't see anything wrong with hurting anyone.

I think crazy is when someone thinks they are doing fine and find out they are not. Example: I will be cleaning my house, doing dishes, and realize I have to start a load of laundry, go to the washer and throw the clothes in it and walk away. finish doing the dishes, dust, vacuum, and begin sweeping. As I am heading to the launry room to sweep it, I realize I didn't start the washer. That's when I think I am crazy. Good question and Thanks Karen

Crazy.... crazy isn't someone who's just got a little bit of an outragious side or a little bit hyperactive.. Crazy's someone with a mental illness that makes them not be able to function properly like every other human being... Crazy isn't a very nice thing my friend, Crazy can ruin you life lol...
