What does it mean to be crazy? Is using the word crazy offensive? What happens when a label like that gets attached to your everyday experiences?
To understand mental health, we need to talk openly about it. Because there’s no single definition of crazy, there’s no single experience that embodies it, and the word itself means different things—wild? extreme? disturbed? passionate?—to different people.
In (Don’t) Call Me Crazy, thirty-three actors, athletes, writers, and artists offer essays, lists, comics, and illustrations that explore a wide range of topics:
their personal experiences with mental illness,
how we do and don’t talk about mental health,
help for better understanding how every person’s brain is wired differently,
and what, exactly, might make someone crazy. If you’ve ever struggled with your mental health, or know someone who has, come on in, turn the pages . . . and let’s get talking.
This award-winning anthology is from the highly-praised editor of Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World and Body Talk: 37 Voices Explore Our Radical Anatomy.

OVERCOMING SELF-DEFEATING BEHAVIOUR
Great book by professional psychotherapist Dr. Mark Goulston. I believe any serious reader will learn to better understand himself and find definite solutions to one’s problematic behavior. if any reader is not going through this book in a superfluous way, he / she will definitely end up bringing positive changes in himself / herself.
For myself, chapters on following self-defeating behavior were most relevant:-
1. How to Beat-Self-Defeat
3. Getting so angry you make things worse.
4. Always having to be right.
5. Taking things too personally.
6. Quitting too soon.
7. Backing down because you don’t feel ready.
