I was disappointed when I searched on my go-to site, Online Etymology Dictionary, and unhinged wasn’t found. I was so looking forward to reading up on the historical use of the word, but alas, I have been unable to find a suitable explanation.
However, I think it’s safe to say “unhinged” does not accurately describe how I’ve been feeling. Although I’ve been “off” I haven’t come “unhinged” to the point of causing anyone bodily harm…at least not yet.
Yup, definitely not “unhinged”. Phew, that’s a relief..
