The looney bin
The looney bin, the booby hatch, the crazy house, the funny farm, the nut house, the snake pit.. Those names are not the most pleasant names for a mental institution. Mental institutions are not only for nutty professors. Some people have psychological issues, that require special treatment. It's not fair to them, to refer to their care facility as the looney bin or all the other hurtful names. If you have a psychological problem, it's good to find professional help. One cannot solve all of his problems by himself. That's when a professional comes in. It's no shame to ask for help, on the contrary, it show great courage to do so. I'm sure it's not easy to tell a total stranger about your most inner feelings. It might be the best way though, to heal the child within yourself. Don't give up. Do it for you. Do it for your family. Think of your future. I believe in you. Do you believe in you too?
