Agateophobia- Fear of insanity

Postby holyhellholly » Wed Jul 03, 2013 10:04 pm

Me? I'm agateophobic. I'm terrified, not of the insane, but of becoming insane.

I am bipolar, major depression....and I'm different ('strange')

So I get thought of as insane quite a bit. But the thought of being called it terrifies me. I know people do, but just...

I don't want to be. I don't want to be crazy

This is 4EverMe and I've answered some of your posts. Anyway...hmmm. I know what you mean. If you lose your mind, what will be going on in that head of yours? Just so you know, i'n speaking generally here! But I've considered that myself. Why?? Well, quite a while back, I was admitted because I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Sooo, I got to see some people in the hospital. Some of them were in a different hall on the same floor.

These people were so far gone, they were runnin around violent and hollerin. They had no clue of normalcy. After I was released from that place, I day dreamed of it. The thought of being in that position of totally losing my sanity, where mental health aids would wrestle w/me to stick a needle in my arm to calm me down? UGH!! Horrible thought. Know what you mean!
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.
