Just announced the orginal picture in the dictionary next to the word "insanity" has been replaced with a picture of me!

Insanity, or madness, is a general popular and legal term defining behaviour influenced by mental instability. It is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as a deranged state of the mind or lack of understanding. Today it is most commonly encountered as an informal term or in the narrow legal context of the insanity defense, and in the medical profession, the term is now avoided in favour of specific diagnoses of mental illness as schizophrenia and other psychotic disorder often brought on by bed rest![1] When discussing the mental stability of Heather Adcock as she enjoys week 6 of bed rest.
