  •  "disturbed" (6+ / 0-)

    is the word that most often comes to my mind.  Deranged to me speaks to a very specific kind of refusal or inability to see reality that is rabid.  Disturbed is a more general term that can encompass a lot of different kinds of difficulties that people may have with circumstances, reality, relationships, regulations, systems, whatever.  

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel

    •  Yeah, "disturbed" is more accurate... (0+ / 0-)

      ...by virtue of it's inaccuracy, in a sense. <--- Assuming that even makes sense.  

      ;)




      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
