I get called that from time to time. People around my apartment and elsewhere have called me that. I guess it shows on me sometimes even when I’m just standing there.
My husband jokingly calls me crazy
Yes, all the time, I guess I kinda am
My sister likes to say I’m “trippin”. My mother just says stuff like “I don’t like that…or you don’t sound well”
Yeah all the time
My Father when he gets pissed off at me calls me all kinds of derogatory names like crazy or coo coo etc…
I look and act normal. But when I type, open my mouth, I think people think I’m crazy. I’m sure of it. I think my parents think I’m nuts. I don’t have any friends because of low self-esteem and because I don’t want any anymore. I’m happy being me.
My aunt keeps a file on me. After an interaction with me she makes notes of the bad I’ve done (in her eyes I’m only bad). Her conclusion is that I’m BPD. I told her she was incorrect, that she’s not a pdoc and that my pdoc diagnosed me sz. It’s awful to have such nasty judgement.
I call myself crazy. When I would here voices they would call me crazy.
When I’m medicated I seem fine in my interactions but my appearance is often disheveled. I’m just guessing but people probably get negative first impressions of me before I speak with them.
Nobody has ever called me crazy. Except my friend. She called me that once. One person described me as “very, very mentally sick”. Another called me “insane”.
I think I dress ugly and down. I go for comfort and I have poor man’s clothes. I tend to wear the same clothes everyday, and not shower anymore. I tend to wear a jacket when it’s hot outside because it’s comfy and my security blanket and I don’t like the cold air touching my skin. Maybe people think I’m weird because of that but they can’t really tell unless they are very close to me or see me every day. Most people I come in contact with are the people at the stores and I don’t know them at all.
Yep, all the time. I got used to it.
Even off meds I can act normal but I’m suffering inside. I tend to get lost inside my head because of too many thoughts. It could be the energy drinks too. Last time I went off meds for a few months, I was just listening to my thoughts mostly and doing nothing and just drinking the drinks. A lot of my thoughts are schizophrenia spectrum type stuff. I tend to think they are my past lives or in parallel universes. I dunno, I believe them sometimes. I think I have improved over the years, but don’t really want to work or go to school out of fear and because I’m afraid of trying and afraid of failure. There is such a thing as psychological trauma and damage associated with schizophrenia and dealing with the illness.
I think I look crazy when I make YouTube videos and post on here. I view this forum as therapy in a way. I have no friends and I’m not interested in having any anymore. I like being alone and I enjoy my family and staying at home, mostly. I think I’d be happy someday moving into a clean, quiet, safe group home and just staying and sleeping in bed all day. That’s what my former roommate did. He looked happy and content. I just need some extra spending money to be happy. It’s not enough to live off of $10 or even $40 bucks a month if my parents are gone in the future some day. I need to plan ahead.
I’ve been called a nut to my face before. I didn’t did not get mad because the person meant it in a friendly way. I’m sure people call me crazy behind my back, but I’m not worried about it. If someone called me crazy to my face I would probably say, “Yup, certifiably.”
No, not to my face anyways.
They just root for me instead if
Not yet, but I’m so very embarrassed at some of the crazy behavior I exhibited at a few mental hospitals during my psychotic years. I remember once the voice convinced me I was an invisible ghost and I went around waving my hand right in front of people’s faces and yelling. I honestly didn’t think they could see or hear me, must have scared them silly. I try to just look forward and forget about the past… I certainly would never do something like that again.
Before I got psychosis my mum used to sometimes say I belong in a mental institution when we argued. That really upset me cos it was the fact that she was saying ‘crazy’ stuff to me that set me off in the first place
Yes. And I don’t like it.
