    Thank you SOUP!

    Sure, but it's not what native English speakers would expect to hear. It's used by a given person in a particular situation; for example, inceptive "He's getting crazy", meaning he is starting to lose it, become crazy, very angry or upset.)

    Here's another one: someone or something is driving me crazy.
