That's what we call those marshy areas in the fields of the flatlands of southern MN. We even call the American Bitterns, those long-necked, crane-like birds that stand in them with their bills pointing skyward "slough pumps."


I'm not sure why. Perhaps they remind people of old-fashioned outdoor water pumps.


So - slough pump, crane or heron?

Anytime the word "psychotic" is used; it is referencing an actual break from reality; such as delusions or hallucinations. Seen frequently in Schizophrenia but also during the manic phase of bi-polar disorder.

mental disorder: broad term used for any atypical presentation of mood or behavior.

Neuroligic disorder: atypical functioning of the brain, sponal cord or nerves. Epilepsy, MS, Parkinson's. etc ...

A person can have a psychotic disorder without having a complaint of mood being affected. A persin can have a mental disorder without losing touch with reality

I feel like it is counter-intuitive to say that there is a dstinction between neurological disorders & any type of mental illness. One day they will be able to confirm that all mental illness IS neurologic in origin.

A Donkey is a member of the horse (equine) family & there are many different breeds; such as the Mammoth Jack & the Burro.. Such as a dog is a member of the canine family with many different breeds, such as a German Shepard & an Australian Shepard.

A mule is the offspring of a male donkey & a horse. Mules are sterile. The donkey can breed with a Zebra; resulting in a Zonkey (yes totally serious).

I grew up on a lake in far northern Illinois in the 1930s and 1940s. Many of the shoreline areas were marshs that we called sloughs, and we called those crane-like birds.........Slough Pumps!!!

I have not heard or seen anyone use that name ..."Slough Pump"...... in 68 or 70 years!!!!! Interesting.
