Guyz, I think I lost my sanity somewhere….
I…feel sometime like I’m not even sane….or like normal?
What ailment is this? Is there a cure??????January 22, 2014 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm #1000791SayIDidIt™Participant
Stop asking such silly questions. We all know the answer!
As crazy as you…January 22, 2014 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #1000792
It’s called teenageritis don’t worry you will grow out of it and its completely normal.January 22, 2014 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1000793
I think you suffer from overpunctuationitis. Common symptoms are: using more than one question mark in a sentence, using more than one exclamation mark in a sentence. The more punctuation marks used, the worse the condition. Don’t worry, it’s not life-threatening and is usually grown out of by about age 25 at the latest, although there are rare exceptions.January 22, 2014 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm #1000794ED IT ORParticipant
a simple no probably does it for most, however dont worry you dont have to be sane, most people are not, as long as you are not insane you should be ok….January 22, 2014 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #1000795
Only about 2.5% of people are sane.January 22, 2014 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #1000796The little I knowParticipant
Overpunctuationitis is a condition that, like its lettered counterpart – hyperlexia (overly good spelling, frequently corrects others’ spelling mistakes) is easily treatable.
The recommended intervention is to move away from the computer and email, and take up texting (especially on the old flip phones that lack a keyboard). One rapidly sheds the extreme nuisance of correct spelling and punctuation. This treatment has a fantastic record of success. Both of the above conditions resolve completely after just a few days of introducing the treatment program.
Physicians are generally exempt from this, as they simply scribble on a prescription pad, need no punctuation or spelling, and are way too busy dealing with the bludgeoning responsibility of insurance friendly documentation to text, email, or blog. No physician was ever taught how to spell stethoscope, electroencephalograph (only its acronym EEG), or countless other long medical terms.January 22, 2014 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1000797oomisParticipant
It is called the teen years, and only time can cure that.January 22, 2014 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1000798

Its called being alive.January 22, 2014 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #1000801dafbiyunParticipant
Doctors have reported excellent results by teaching patients to make it through a sentence without using the word “like” when unnecessary.January 23, 2014 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1000802
TLIK – I beg to differ, overpuntuationitis cannot be cured by texting, since most people on the texting treatment program tend to use multiple exclamation marks and question marks.
As for hyperlexia, I will admit to being a sufferer, and have no intention of taking treatment. Bad spelling and grammar is just unprofessional and wrong, and when I see it on menus, shops and school notices (for goodness’ sake) I really cringe. But most teenagers will grow out of overpunctuationitis.January 25, 2014 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #1000803
My doctor told me I’m insane and there’s no cure…what do I do? Should I take an aspirin????January 26, 2014 12:40 am at 12:40 am #1000804WIYMember
I would get a second opinion!January 26, 2014 2:13 am at 2:13 am #1000805Bookworm120Participant
@WIY – I second that! If you’re being serious, you should definitely make sure you’re consulting with somebody who knows what they’re talking about.January 26, 2014 4:10 am at 4:10 am #1000806
Are you sane? that depends what do the voices in your head think?
Mental health is of course nothing to make fun of hence this thread should be closed.January 26, 2014 10:02 am at 10:02 am #1000807
Goq are you being serious?January 26, 2014 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #1000808
Yes i am, I don’t think the OP really thinks she’s insane and the line about aspirin was indicative of that, mental illness is an illness and thus should not be made fun of.January 26, 2014 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1000809
You could go through the same process I did. It took a couple of years, I finally got my certificate of normality. (valid for one year)January 26, 2014 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1000810
she wasn’t making fun of mental illness, she was making fun of insanity. There’s a difference.January 26, 2014 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1000811SanityIsOverratedParticipant
I’m still here.
Life tends to be more entertaining when sanity is thrown out the window. (both good and bad. Some of the greatest people in the world would have been classified crazy today)January 26, 2014 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #1000812
froggie, what’s normal? Normal is boring…January 26, 2014 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #1000813the-art-of-moiParticipant
I think the question shopping asked has passed through everyones mind at some point during their lives. So heres the answer: Maybe. But as long as your insanity is doing no harm (whether to you or the ppl around you) it doesnt matter.January 27, 2014 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #1000814
TAOM, Nice seeing you, new subtitle I see.
Chizuk? That’s pretty cute, sounds like your doing ok by your subtitle…I wish I was here often enough to follow threads and give chizuk too….
About sanity, what if your whole life you’ve been told by adults you aren’t sane??????
That’s my point, like the OP….January 27, 2014 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #1000815
HELP!!! My certificate expires today!!!January 27, 2014 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #1000816
Good, now life will get more interesting for you again.January 28, 2014 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #1000817
Why?January 28, 2014 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #1000818
because being normal is boringJanuary 28, 2014 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #1000819
Why be normal in the first place?January 28, 2014 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #10008202ND OPPINIONParticipant
To quote someone famous,”Normal is relative; we’re not related.”January 28, 2014 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1000821
To quote someone unknown, “Hey, you don’t even know who I am”.January 28, 2014 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm #10008222ND OPPINIONParticipant
How do you know? And besides, if i was quoting someone, then it probobly was not you, which would make it completely irrelevant if we are related or not.January 29, 2014 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1000823
I honestly don’t know why someone would choose to be normal. Shudder. Being slightly daft is so much fun!January 29, 2014 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1000824
<<Warning People>> (aliens too)
It’s starting to have an effect!
(hey, where am I?)January 29, 2014 2:56 pm at 2:56 pm #1000825
Being way eccentric is even funner! (“Funner” is a word. It always was one, but now I invented another definition for is: the original definition multiplied by 3.14000000000.)January 29, 2014 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #1000826

Sorry, just showing off. Why can’t I remember the other things, like where I put my shopping?January 29, 2014 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1000827
That’s the point. It’s called Pie, not Pi, but it’s raw. Maybe the recipe meant to bake it at 350 degreews, not the way I did it (in a cold oven for 350 minutes)!January 29, 2014 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #1000828
