My Greatest Fear: My Mother's Cancer (#3)

For most of my life, I, secretly, feared that there may have been a hint of truth behind people’s accusations that I was crazy.  I emphatically denied it, but still, there was this nagging sense that maybe I was lying to myself.  I could say with all honesty that this was my greatest fear.  That was until March 4, 2012, the day my mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer.   This diagnosis annihilated any of my previous ideas of fear and what arose was a terror that I never could have imagined. 

How Crazy Found Healthy (#2)

I’m sick and tired of how people readily use the word crazy.  I’ve heard crazy slung at people countless times but rarely, is it used accurately.  It seems to me that crazy and psychotic are far from interchangeable.  Crazy infers not normal.  Whereas, psychotic is an actual term used for certain organic imbalances by professionals and even then, psychologists shy away from the term.
