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.
Everyone, or most everyone, I know has a “neurotic moment” or “personality glitch” from time to time, and just the other day, one of my receptionist, had a moment. First off, let me go ahead and say, I love her and she is wonderful, but, boy did she have a” moment.” She went through the entire kitchen, opened every cabinet, and left all the doors open. As I walked into the kitchen, she appeared to be in complete state of shear mania. Doors were opening and her hands were frantically moving. In the case, of my receptionist, open cabinet doors, are her neurosis, and that is our sign, that an immediate demise is forth coming. Ultimately, I surmised that she must be in need of some form of nutrition. Needless to say, the cupboards were bare, she was NOT happy, and frankly I was scared!
The interesting thing about people’s neurosis, it is often a direct gateway to their needs, or emotional state at that specific time. I have learned over the years that these “moments” need to be addressed, and if not, can truly be dangerous. So, in the case of my receptionist, an immediate run to the gas station for chocolate, bread, butter and a REAL Coke was a necessity. After consumption our office world was completely restored.
