There is a psychiatric/psychological diagnosis called “Folie a Plusieurs,” which is a French phrase literally meaning “Madness has Several.” This disorder was first discovered by French Mental Health Professionals, thus the French name.
The illness may occur when people are so enmeshed with each other they actually adopt the psychosis or psychoses of their companions.
Currently, I am a Stay Home, HomeSchooling Mother to a ten-year old Human Boy, Ciaran (pronounced KEAR-un), a four-year old Bloodhound Boy, Seamus, and a six-year-old Retired Racing Greyhound Boy, Milas. My Husband (also a Boy), Jonathan, and I have been married for 15 years.
They are my treasures.
I also write. Here is my lens for the epoch we all share-past, present, and, God willing, future. These are my hopes, ruminations, and of course, delirious thoughts…but what always burns most vividly is the beautiful laughter.
Détenir sur étroite à la folie avec mon âme folle ma pretties.
