I called my parents, because I realized that they did insulate me from a whole lot of insanity over my developmental years. I never had to evolve the coping skills to tackle the skewed worldview of a deeply crazy person while I was growing up. And for that I am thankful. Yeah, it wasn't a perfect childhood, but it never is. My parents are reasonably sane themselves, and they kept sane people around them.
