Neurosis is a class of functional mental disorders involving distress but neither delusions nor hallucinations, whereby behavior is not outside socially acceptable norms. It is also known as psychoneurosis or neurotic disorder, and thus those suffering from it are said to be neurotic. The term essentially describes an "invisible injury" and the resulting condition.
I never chose the word Neurosis by just plucking it out of the air. I chose it for two reasons:
- I think it accurately describes the state I've been living in, especially lately; and,
- It's kind of a bullshit term now.
