: Having sent a manuscript to a friend, I received the answer "...I am mental for the next fwe weeks, but look forward to reading it."
: Could anybody please tell me what the first part ("I am mental") means?
It is short for: I am mentally disturbed, mentally ill, have mental health issues. I have so much on my mind, I'll be slightly crazy for the next five weeks.
