You'll want to seek professional medical advice. It's never a good idea to self-diagnose, and mental illness is no exception.
Think about it this way, you wouldn't trust your own opinion on a suspicious lump, chest pain, or persistent nausea. So don't do it with regard to mental health, either. It's always better to seek help from a professional, and, although there can be a stigma around mental healthcare, one shouldn't be discouraged from seeking a consultation if he or she thinks it might be necessary.
I believe that everyone is "crazy" in their own way. Mental health wise you might want to go get a professionals opinion.
I think everyone is a little crazy. I always say the people that are really crazy are pretty lucky that they probably don't even know that they are crazy. If someone does recognize that they have some serious issues I would advise them to talk it over with someone that they trust and seek out help.
You know you're crazy when you have no doubt that you are not crazy.
Never think you are crazy. Always assume that everyone else, except me, is crazy and you, as well as me, are the only two that are sane.
Everyone else may think we are the crazy people, but we will know better.
Crazy? Who are you calling crazy?
There's nothing wrong with me, at all.
The voice (My voices) tell me that every day.
I'm completely sane. get it?
The world me be crazy, but there's nothing wrong with me, with me, with me, with me.
I think when you are able to ask the question of other folks and yourself - 'am I crazy' really points to you not being crazy, as you are still able to rationalise. You may have mental health problems, but this is not being crazy.
The best thing to do is to speak to a professional about your concerns. Mental health issues are the same as any other medical condition - so don't feel stigmatised or feel that in some way you are different to other people. Your not. The brain needs help on occasion like every other organ in the body and the best folks to do that for you is a health professional.
First if you are really crazy, you probably don't know about it. Second, much better look for God then any psychologist!
I ask my unicorn to do my homework in Korean so the boxes don't get jealous.
the classic answer is - if you think everyone else is crazy and you're the only sane person you know you'd better seek help.
I think 'crazy' is a derogatory word and you probably shouldn't be calling anyone, including yourself, 'crazy'.
Mental illness can be roughly divided into two types: 1) organic--that is, illnesses that seem to have a clear physical or biological cause, and 2) adjustment disorders--illnesses that are the result of maladaptive coping skills.
If you have an organic mental illness, you might not know you are sick, but in some cases you will know but won't be able to sort out what to do about it. Schizophrenia is a good example of an organic mental illness.
If you have an adjustment disorder, you probably realize you have a problem but may be afraid to seek help because of the social stigma attached to having a mental illness.
About half of all Americans will have to deal with a mental illness at some point in life--usually a depressive disorder or an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are far and away the most common mental illnesses in the US and most under-treated. But does having one of these problems make you 'crazy'?
No. It just makes you a human being.
There are also a wide variety of anomalous experiences that many people have that are not associated with any mental illness but which provoke other people who are uncomfortable with these strange experiences to use the word 'crazy when talking about them. That reaction is kind of the problem of the person using the word, not the person having the experience.
You start asking questions about whether you're crazy . No, just kidding, you're not crazy.

i don't like the term crazy, but when someone is losing grips with reality as in schizophrenia, is the patient aware of the deterioration of their sanity and they are simply helpless to stop it (further compounding the problem) or is the person suffering schizophrenia oblivious to the incongruency...

More gun violence very close to where I live yesterday. Most weapons, including guns, are available to anyone in this country at any given time. But what about the people who are using the guns? Are they mentally ill? are they psychopaths? Are they terrorists? Are they all of the above? In any...
