Have you ever truly questioned your sanity?

    I have.
    Today I was in Starbucks working on my computer and holding my cell phone to my ear waiting for a customer service rep for an issue I was having to do with my small business.

    Anyway, as I was waiting and engrossed in my computer work the rep started talking to me and I started to frantically search for my phone (which of course I was holding against my ear). I stood up, and circled the seat looking for the phone and actually started to sweat. I can only imagine what it looked liked to the other starbuckers who were probably mortified.

    Anyway, I soon realized where my phone was and tried to regain control.

    Kind of questioning if I have a screw loose.

    Care to share your insane moment?

    I have moments like this all the time, and i am wracking my brain trying to think of some, but sometimes i can see and feel myself just on the edge of lunacy

    Usually, everyday at work, I question my sanity at least once. I frequently will head someplace to get something, return to my desk, look at it for about a minute, and realize I totally forgot to grab something while down the hall. My coworkers will look at me like, "What are you doing, you mess?"

    Sometimes I questioned my sanity. That was before I started listening to the voices in my head and do what they tell me to. Now things are much better. icon_biggrin.gif

    A few times. Generally from when I was taking Acid.

    I ended up in a park thinking I was a vampire at one stage.

    Thinking I had died after closing my eyes for a minute.

    And multiple times of severe hallucinations.

    I've been posting on this site more and more. What do you think? Of course I question my sanity. "Sanity," I say, "where have you gone? COME BACK!!! COME BACK, SHANE!!!!"

    I cannot misplace that which I have never truly possessed.

    God I loved acid in college. I put on a pair of giant pink dinosaur slippers, and I literally became a dinosaur. A pink one. I was a pretty fabulous dinosaur.

    If you live life without pushing yourself enough to question your sanity, that's a bit like going to the gym everyday and never sweating or getting breathless.

    My craziest moment was when I was teaching my music appreciation class and looked for my glasses for twenty minutes before a student took pity on me and told them they were on my head.
    Living in this country would make anyone question their sanity. I still get a migraine everytime I try to understand how for so long people in this country said it was ok to help a woman have a litter of kids through science (when women only have two nipples) but not ok to use science to do stem cell research.

    HAHA, I'm more the paranoid type of crazy. When driving, I have to turn down the music every few minutes, cause I'll be sure I heard a noise that would imply something is wrong w/ my truck. Sometimes I randomly answer the phone cause I thought I heard it ring, same w/ the door. I constantly am confusing things I've dreamed, read, seen on TV and what I've actually done. And the worst....most days I'm positively sure that I'm more sane than the people around me. :-)

    Oh, all the time. I can't begin to tell you how many ATM cards I have lost withdrawing cash and leaving the card in the machine, or bought groceries and left the bags sitting at the check out. Then there was the time I filled up with gas but drove away forgetting to remove the hose from the gas tank first -- THAT wasn't pretty. Then there was just recently when I backed into a parked car. Nope, with a mind as shot as mine those rear bumper sensors blarring sometimes just don't register icon_rolleyes.gif

    I have you beat. I never remember my PIN number. And it's a variation of my birthday.

    Yes I have, I can't lie. Sometimes I just wonder if everything is fucked up in this world or if I'm nuts/

    We have different craziness. I haven't ever left behind my ATM card. But sometimes I forget to put my shoes in their spot on the closet floor where they are organized by color. If I see them missing later, it bothers me.

    I often question my own sanity but the voices reassure me that I am ok.

    Never. Excuse me while I finally have a bowl of cereal since I just found the milk in the cupboard.
