Just Crazy Enough?


Joshua Walters at TED on his experience of being locked in a psych ward; on being diagnosed drugs guided by what was written on the side of  the Doctor’s pen;  investors seeking entrepreneurs with “hypomanic edge”;  and reflecting onthe idea that none of us is really crazy: we are all just a little bit mad.

We can choose to “deny my mental illness, or embrace my mental skillness”  and how, just maybe, the best way to be might be  “just crazy enough”.  If we can be that lucky.
