The upside to mental illness

Sufferers of mental illness can have such an unusual view of the world that it can be very creative. van Gogh is but one example. In this case, in the final months of her life, a woman finds love - imaginery but love nonethless.

Her delusions, unremittingly ugly, had suddenly grown beautiful. In the end, the
psychosis was her friend.

I'll drink to that.

Is being psychotic the only way to survive life in this crazy world? Wine helps as well!
