If these commentators wish to use the adverby "actually," then they should not use such empty slang terms as "nuts" and "mad." If they have any content, it is the generic term, "mental illness" -- but of what species? OCD? Bipolar? Borderline PD? Depression? Anxiety Disorder? Schizophrenia? AD/HD? Schizoaffective Disorder? It's probably not a useful perspective.
