What is meant by mentally unstable?
Mentally unstable refers to when a person's mental abilities are not steady and consistent resulting in an inability to cope with life effectively. They have difficulty dealing with everyday life and make poor choices that end up causing them more difficulty. It can be marked by anxiety, excessive worrying, aggression, becoming upset easily, temper tantrums (especially in public when most people try to control their emotions), moodiness, extreme highs and lows, depression, delusions, substance abuse, etc.
It should be evaluated by a professional and can be treated.

The Jocaxian Nothingness [Nada Jocaxiano] JoÃ£o Carlos Holland de Barcellos translated by Debora Policastro The "Jocaxian Nothingness" (JN) is the "Nothingness" th…at exists. It is a physical system devoid not only of physical elements and physical laws, but also of rules of any kind. In order to understand and intuit JN as an "existent nothingness", we can mentally build it as follows: we withdraw all the matter, energy and the field they generate from the universe. Then we can withdraw dark energy and dark matter. What is left is something that is not the nonexistent. Let us continue our mental experiment and suppress elements of the universe: now, we withdraw physical laws and spatial dimensions. If we do not forget to withdraw anything, what is left is a JN: an existent nothingness. JN is different from the Nothingness we generally think of. The commonly believed nothingness, which we might call "Trivial Nothingness" to distinguish it from the JN, is something from which nothing can arise, that is, the "Trivial Nothing" follows a rule: "Nothing can happen". Thus, the "Trivial Nothingness", the nothingness people generally think of when talking about "nothingness", is not the simpler possible nothingness, it has at least one restriction rule. Jocax did not define the JN as something in which nothing exists. Such definition is dubious and contains some contradictions as: "If in the nothingness nothing exists, then, nothingness itself does not exist". No. First, Jocax defined what it means to exist: "Something exists when its properties are fulfilled within reality". Therefore, JN has been defined as something that: 1- Has no physical elements of any kind (particles, energy, space, etc.) 2- Has no laws (no rules of any kind). Being so, JN could have physically existed. JN is a construction that differs from the "trivial nothingness" since it does not contain the rule "Nothing can happen". That way, Jocax liberates his JN from semantic paradoxes like: "If it exists, then it does not exist" and claims that this nothingness is SOMETHING that could have existed. That is, JN is the simpler possible physical structure, something like the minimal state of nature. And also the natural candidate for the origin of the universe. We must not confuse the definition of the NJ with rules to be followed. It is only the declaration of a state. If nature is in the state defined by conditions 1 and 2 above, we say it is a "Jocaxian-Nothingness". The state of a system is something that can change, differently from the rule that must be followed by the system (otherwise it would not be a rule). For example, the state "has no physical elements"; it is a state, not a rule because, occasionally this state may change. If it was a rule it could not change (unless another rule eliminated the first one). Being free of any elements, JN does not presume the existence of any existing thing but its own and, by the "Occam's Razor", it must be the simpler state possible of nature, therefore with no need for explanations about its origin. JN, of course, does not currently exist, but may have existed in a distant past. That is, JN would be the universe itself - defined as a set of all existing things - in its minimal state. Thus we can also say the Universe (being a JN) has always existed. JN, as well as everything that can be understood by means of logic, must follow the tautology: "it may or may NOT happen". This tautology - absolute logical truth - as we shall see, has also a semantic value in JN: it allows things to happen (or not). We cannot say that events in the JN must necessarily occur. Eventually, it is possible that nothing really happens, that is, JN may continue "indefinitely" (time does not exist in a JN) without changing its initial state and with no occurrences. But there is a possibility that random phenomena can derive from this absolute nothingness. This conclusion comes logically from the analysis of a system without premises: as JN, by definition, does not have laws, it can be shaped as a logical system without premises. We shall interrupt a little in order to open up an explanatory digression. We are dealing with two types of "Jocaxian-Nothingness": the physical object named "JN", which was the universe in its minimal state with the properties described above; and the theory which analyses this object, the JN-Theory. The JN-Theory, the theory about the JN-object (this text), uses logical rules to help us understand the JN-Object. But JN-object itself does not follow logical rules, once there are no laws it must obey. Nevertheless, I do not believe we will let possibilities to JN-object escape if we analyze it according to classic logic. However, we must be aware that this logical analysis (JN-Theory) could maybe limit some potentiality of JN-Object. Within a system without premises, we cannot conclude that something cannot happen. There are no laws from which we can draw this conclusion. That is, there is no prohibition for anything to happen. If there is no prohibition for anything to happen, then, eventually, something may happen. That is, the tautological logics remain true in a system without premises: "something happens or not". If something occasionally happens, this something must not obey rules and, therefore, would be totally random and unpredictable. We call the first JN randomizations Schizo-Creations . This schizo-creations , once they come from something without laws, are totally random and, if we could watch them, they would seem completely "schizophrenic". Of course with the first randomizations, JN is no longer the original JN as now it owns something, that is, the JN transforms. Because JN is not limited by any laws, it may eventually also generate laws, to which its elements - now itself - would have to obey. Let us show how the random generation of laws can produce a logical universe: suppose laws are generated randomly in a sequence. If a new law is generated and does not conflict with the others, all of them remain undamaged in the set of generated laws. However, if a law that conflicts with other laws previously generated appears, it replaces (kills) the previous laws that are inconsistent with it, since it must be obeyed (until a newer law opposes to it). Thus, in a true "natural selection" of laws, only a little set of laws compatible to each other would last. That answers a fundamental philosophical question about our universe: "Why does the universe follow logical rules?" Thereby, the Jocaxian Nothingness is the natural candidate for the origin of the our cosmo, since it is the simpler possible state nature could present: a state of such simplicity there would not be the need to explain its existence. And, by logical consequence of this state, anything could be (or not) randomized, even our physical laws and elementary particles..
Encourage them to get help. If you know they have a condition or a specific mental illness, you can read up on it and try to find ways to help them deal. (Do NOT try to …psychoanalyze them, or play therapist; that's not what friendships are for.) If you think they may harm themselves or others, contact the authorities; better safe than sorry, in such a case.
It is common while discussing a mentally unstable acting person over the airwaves to use the code "5150".
when you're starting to get mood swings, be on your toes. it's only going downhill from there. watch out for depression, panic attacks and numbness.
they sort of go hand in hand. but usually mentally unstable is someone who actually suffers from a life long mental illness. but emotionally unstable can just last a periiod o…f time and be cause by a tragic event
no, Hitler was mentally unstable........that would'NT be a correct phrase.......infact he was a megalomaniac. a "megalomaniac" is a person who craves power,wealth,status or ge…nius to the point of mania or someone who belives that they are ridiculously powerful..........he was not mentally unstable.... no, Hitler was mentally unstable........that would'NT be a correct phrase.......infact he was a megalomaniac. a "megalomaniac" is a person who craves power,wealth,status or genius to the point of mania or someone who belives that they are ridiculously powerful..........he was not mentally unstable....
deppending on how severe he/she is. but they may be analysed, but are usually charged like anyone else would, unless they were registered mentally ill
People can be mentally unstable in many ways and its not always a bad thing. If you're in a school for example then be his/hers friend as much as needed. No one really likes t…o be left alone or isolated, that creates more paranoia etc.. Of course if he asks for strange things, then you shouldn't help him with those.. Like if he calls someday and asks for your personal information, so that he can get his medicine from the apothecary, because he lost his own papers etc. Then use caution. But if he is a nice person, who may be suffering from social phobia or something like that (you never know), then I bet he appreciates you a lot if he feels comfortable around you. If you like being with him, then its good, if you don't like him, then take distance. If he talks strange stuff to you just say "I'm not interested!".
As long as one's devotion is done on his/her own body, it is a deadly sad way to cope with inner suffering. Much better it would be to seek for psychological help, but it's a …free will question there. Obviously, if the devotion is to someone else's amputation...it's a crime and therefore the culprit is a mentally unstable person.
If your wife is mentally unstable then you need to realize that she has no place in a stable marriage. My wife was mentally unstable and popped xanax's and drank everyda…y. She eventually went to rehab and found a man and left me for him. Was I upset? Yes, very much so. Did I want her back? Yes. But now after realizing how much emotional pain an unstable woman can cause you, it was for the best. Mentally unstable people also tend to be very selfish, and pathological liars to hide their problems. I didn't need it and neither do you.
Anyone can get divorced and divorce anyone. mental health is nothing to do with it.
A collective characteristic mindset that determines how a body of individuals react to situations and others not of their set. A bunker mentality dictates a defensive posture …where everyone is paranoid that they are under constant attack, and will react to an attack with a similar skill set and mindset. A colonial mentality is a persistent feeling of institutionalized inferiority compared to people of an established country or social system.
It is to have a problem in the brain (or sometimes in legs but that's not really mental) Sometimes from having troubles in birth or when the child is still in the mothers womb…
Let me start by saying that I, for one, appreciate your wishing to understand someone else's mental state. I've been suffering with Major Depression for 6 years now and with t…he help of medication (which I avoided for a very long time) I've finally been able to make some progress in my life. The best thing to do is simply be their friend. In all actuality, (unless of course you're a psyciatrist) there's not much someone can do. Just be there for them. Help them make psych appointments (alot of depressed people will avoid social contact. Calling people on the phone may not appeal to them) or hang out with them when they're feeling blue. Let them know you love and care for them, often. It's honestly one of the best things you can do. Try not to focus so much on things you can do to 'fix' them.; you'll only let yourself down. I mean, face it, if they're mentally unstable there's nothing you can do in your own power to change the configuration of their brain. I'll leave you with these last couple things you can do. Do what you can to make sure that this person gets medical care. Encourage your friend or loved one to stick with his or her therapy or medication. Offer to go with him or her to appointments as support. Also, be supportive and patient. Listen to what the he or she has to say. I hope you have found something in this to be helpful. Keep it up. If someone you know is thinking about suicide, don't ignore it. Do whatever you can to get help for that person. Get in touch with his or her doctor or therapist.
In auditing, keeping a independent mental attitude involves "professional skepticism". While an auditor should not assume that everything management says is a lie, he also sho…uldn't assume that everthing management tells him can be relied upon as true without any need for independent verification by the auditor. An auditor often deals with management, but his duty is not to the audited company's management, but rather to the directors, owners and potential future owners of a company, who will rely on the audited financial statements to make decisions about investment in the audited company.
You might have to leave while he's away if you think he will become violent. Go to a womens shelter. They will put you and your three kids up for a while. They can also …help you with the legalities of your situation and provide counseling for you and your kids. The most important thing is to get your kids out of the unstable enviroment. If you don't, then this thing can come back at you, making you responible for your children.
