Cars break down. Computers break down.

Nerves don't break down.

I think have a nervous breakdown every time I hear someone say they're having a "nervous breakdown"... It's a very melodramatic phrase. Get a hold of yourself, please.

...Even worse is when someone says they "had a breakdown [in the past]"... Like, you're telling me that you're thinking clearly right now, yet you're still on about this "breakdown" thing? Unnnnngh

I wouldn't even know if I was having a breakdown. Being broken down seems absolutely normal to me.

What does a nervous breakdown conclude.
For me, it involved:
Constant paranoia, complete loss of appetite, constant feeling of sickness in my stomach, heart palpitations, irritable bowels, severe stress, frequent panic attacks, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep etc..

So yeah, in a nutshell, I wanted to die..

Of course not. Started randomly crying because I'm not at all concerned about my future.
