In reply to What would happen if i lost my mind?, posted by RjLockhart98 on March 26, 2005, at 22:27:47
I shared this on the psychobabble board, but a few months back, I was CERTAIN I was going crazy.
I just did not feel like myself anymore. Come to find out, the Lexapro had spun into this world of cycling/dysphoric mania.. there was a very chemical cause for what I was experiencing but in the middle of it, it didn't mean a hill of beans to me. All I KNEW was that I felt crazy and thought I'd never be sane again.
Then I went into the psych ward and found that there really are people who truly, clinically have "lost their minds" and gone insane. The thing I noticed about such people, is that they have NO CLUE they are "crazy."
So... that brought me some comfort. I figure as long as I was concerned about going crazy, I truly wasn't.. beucase once you " go there" you have no idea you've made it!
