Facing Forward

Call Me Crazy

Using the word crazy is generally frowned upon in the mental health community.   No one wants to be called crazy in a dismissive disrespectful way but when I think back over my time in the hospital and all the things I’ve been through the only word that comes to my mind that sums everything up is “crazy”.  So I call my sick self crazy or insane but mostly just to distinguish the time from now when I call myself sane.  Health is sanity to me.
