Back in March, clinical psychologist (and awesome comic book geek) Dr. Andrea Letamendi wrote a really great article about Rick Grime’s mental state. Are his hallucinations realistic? Could he really “snap” out of it after seeing Morgan? How bad off is Morgan, anyway? Dr. Letamendi addresses all these things, as well going into more details regarding hallucinations and mental illness. It’s a super interesting read, and really accessible.

And if you want to give the good doctor a follow, she’s on Twitter.
I think rick grimes is crazy because his wife died
Of course he is crazy. How could you not be in this situation? This guy gets shot, left for dead (rightfuly so), and wakes up to this new world. Top that off with a pregnant wife who doesn’t know who the baby’s daddy is, and a group of strangers looking to you for answers!
he is just going through a fase, trying to keep everyone alive. despite the complaining from that lovesick couple.
I Love the Walking dead Iam a Hunter Just like you Rick
