    I don't think anyone I've known would constitute as "crazy" but severe mental problems were definatly there. When I was younger, I knew a kid so messed up he put his new kitten in the microwave. The other person I knew with major issues ended up hanging himself not long ago.

    sorry to hear about that..

    whats with microwaves cause this kid i knew he wasnt right in the head, i think it was due to all the drugs he was taking, but he put his gerbil in a tubberware container and filled it halfway with water and put it in the microwave. I went over to his house, it smelled like shit in there and asked what the hell the smell was, i opened up his microwave to find his gerbil in the microwave, it was gross as fuck..

    maybe theres something to the microwave thing.

    I knew this kid who put a cat in there. It didn't die at first, all it's fur fell off. then it ran away and died.

    this kid wasn't really crazy though, just destructive

    it is sad, I watched this thing about stalkers or something, and this guy whom was obessed with, i cant remember who, but he was going to send a bomb to her and he was taping the whole thing, and they even warned you before they played his tape he made cause they said he had lost touch with all of reality, and it was literally disturbing and sad to watch.

    Yes, I have met a really disturbed person. I have known him since I was around 17. People say he did used to be normal (I know his cousin), but I think schizophrenia reared it's ugly head when he hit his 20's....He wasn't even invited to his brother's wedding....these things happen when you won't take your meds!

    He thought there was a monkey-man in the moon and that Chuck Norris was coming to fight him, so he would do all these wierd made-up karate moves....He would be picked up by the cops for shooting off guns, and threaten to kill people.....I still see him around, but I don't make eye-contact...:D

  13. yes it was hard at first but she really has always been off but it wasnt until 6 years ago she was certifed insane.

    she just acts like a child really.

    I've known some people with things like bi-polar, severe depression... and I knew one boy who hanged himself, which was really sad. He was a nice kid, too. Nice big smile. Poor guy...there was a lot going on there that a lot of us probably didn't realize. I think he was about 14 or 15 when he killed himself. :(

    I've talked to a few schizophrenics, and all are a little odd, to say the least. One, though, took the cake as far as "crazy" is concerned, probably because he was homeless and eventually would run out of meds. He'd wind up walking around a shopping center I used to work in. He thought this guy with dreads in the cd store was the anti-christ and attacked him. He thought my store manager (she looked hispanic) was a colombian cartel assassin sent to kill him. He climbed atop a table in the courtyard outside the food stores and told people to stop wearing deodorant because it was blocking our bodies natural defense mechanism... our sweat, you see, contains chemicals that the alien's scanners can't get past.

    This guy could also recite any verse in the king james bible, and give an extremely intelligent explanation of what that verse was about. Kinda freaky.

    Fulmah, have you ever read Wally Lamb's "I know this much is true" ?? His character Thomas sounds a lot like the person you're describing...I wonder what the connection is between schizophrenia and the bible. I'm not trying to be a shit, I'm actually curious. That connection seems to come up a lot.

    I've not read that, but I'll add it to my list of books to read (it was getting sparse, anyways). As far as bible stuff, perhaps it's just that schizo people raised in our christian culture relate to the spiritual characteristics their dementia exhibits?

    yeah, i know this guy, he's really cool but he's clearly living on a parallel dimension...it's like he's technically on another planet...you have to know him to see what i'm talking about. he gets madder from time to time and been in hospital a few times cos he gets out of control, he literally passes out and losses all sense of reality, and last time i saw him he told me he was under medication but he said he didnt like to take his meds cos they made him impotent. When he's on his meds he acts weirder than usual.

    It should be WHO rather than WHOM because the subordinate clause is using the predicate and predicate complement. Thus you say, "Who is ... crazy" rather than "Whom is ... crazy" in English.

    But to answer your question, yes. I have known people who hear voices, carry on dialogue with G*d, have ideation of grandeur and are into body mutilation.

    And let's not get into the unbelievable behavior of parents and children as they interact in the aisles of the Piggly Wiggly!

    Ehm.. why would being into body mutilation be a sign of mental illness? Do you mean the (usually teenage kids) that cut themselve for relieve stress or block mental pain (that's hardly an mental illness now is it)? Or do you mean people who make burnmarks or scars (because that's just a way of selfexpression and is preferably refered to as body manipulation).. or do you mean the mentally ill, that hurt themselfs by banging their heads against things or biting their hands (because there it is just a symptom)?

    Kinda wondering why you would state someone who's 'into' body mutilation as being crazy or having severe mental problems. Care to explain?
