Insanity

“Insanity – a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.”

(R. D. Laing, according to the internet)

 

The radio DJ mentioned today that Amanda Bynes’s family insists that she has NO mental illnesses.

This seems like a bold statement to me, because, aren’t we ALL a little crazy sometimes?

Where, exactly, does “no mental illness” sit on the spectrum of varied human thoughts, emotions and behavioral patterns?

 

I have never met Amanda. Therefore I can not say if she displays true signs of “crazy,” or maybe “media attention.” It could be “misunderstood” or “lies.”

 

Regardless, who is anyone to judge the struggles of others, mental or otherwise?

 

And who gets to be the poster-child for “normal” anyway? Who would even want to be on that poster at all? “Normal” sounds like a boring title to me.
