Wait... So a little Krazy can be a good thing?!

Schizophrenia; Psychosis; Dissociative (multiple personalities) - All have the magic and riches to shift the world as we know it. 

Identity Disorder, Schizophrenia, WomanHow frequently have we associated mental illness as a negative in our American culture? NPR's Ted Radio Hour's The Unquiet Mind helps bring the discussion to the table with such provocative discussion ranging from (but not limited to) Jon Ronson's quote of "Being not normal is the new normal;" to the discussion of the narcissistic injury of having a mental illness.

The haunting reality of entering Hades' domain only to reap the benefits of the true psyche.  Persephone, Psyche, and a few chosen heroes such as Orpheus, Hercules were able to enrich mankind as a result of the travels to the depths of the Underworld.
