Today, at my therapy appointment, I was spilling my guts to my therapist. When I'd finished, to get rid of the awkward silence, I asked, "I'm not crazy, right?" His response was, "That's bit of a loaded question." FML

You're worried about being crazy? I worry about being normal! Embrace who you are!

#2 is very right. asking 'what is normal?' is even more of a loaded question. come enjoy being crazy.

Finally I can go on that killingspree I've always lusted after, thank you for these words, I owe you everything.

normal is for boring people insanity is fun

insanity is not quite the kind of crazy we are talking about...

This comment thread is full of bullshit. Don't ******* talk about mental illness like it's cute and quirky to have. I'd give almost anything to be mentally healthy.

#58 people who have it talk about their illnesses like that to show they accept it. i have many mental illnesses and laugh and joke because i stopped denying it. for those of you who have something go ahead and make a joke about it and laugh.

Your comment is full of bullshit. Don't ******* talk about mental illness like it's miserable and depressing to have. I'd never want to be "mentally healthy." How about you don't tell me what I'm not allowed to say about my own identity, or how happy I'm not allowed to be.

Hey being crazy is an art, be proud of who you are! Also what is it these days with FML with all the therapists FMLs?! Maybe they're the crazy ones, and we're the sane ones! *dramatic music*

i was gonna quote this! well way to go ananya!

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

#40 youre only suffering if you arent having fun with it.

If you're actually asking if you're crazy, then the answer should be apparent.

that's a fallacy, the "asking if you're crazy, makes you sane" is a misconception

Isn't that sort of unprofessional? What do you guys think?

no, he is supposed to diagnose and tell the truth, lying to OP would make the whole thing worse. source: Been in therapy for 11 years

I don't think it is, I think it's very uncommon but I don't think unprofessional is the word your looking for

I don't think it's unprofessional as such, I just think he could have chosen his words better. I think he was trying to say he can't give an answer to a question like that, because if he said no, it could result in 'then why do I need therapy?' or 'so I can stop coming to see you?', and naturally he doesn't want to say yes and give OP the negative label of 'crazy'.

Your not crazy your reality is just different to everyone else's lol

Crazy people don't know they're crazy.

Yes we do, we are perfectly aware. Now stand still, I have to cut off that demon whispering lies in your ear and this scythe is a bit unwieldy. *Grins*

actually crazy people are the most self aware about their awkwardness, at least in my experience

What is you're not crazy though? What if the people seemed crazy are actually sane and can just see everything other people can't and the ones who are "sane" are actually crazy because they can't?

he cant say no if you are crazy and he cant say yes without upsetting a crazy person :p

Now I'm curious to know how much your therapist wrote while you were talking.
