If I don't care about my husband whatever he does or whatever he says, can I say to him "You are out of my mind"?

I got a hint from "out of sight, out of mind", but something strange is that 'out of one's mind' means 'insane'.

Is that correct?

  • "You are out of your mind" = "You are insane". "You are out of my mind" is not a stable idiom. I think it's easier to say, "I am not thinking of you at all". – Victor Bazarov Oct 17 '15 at 23:35

I'm not thinking of you, or I'm ignoring you, would be more appropriate choices. You are out of my mind is really not a phrase that is used.


You are out of your mind.

would be OK, though this is more likely used related to specific situations, and to describe disbelief at what someone said or did, not that you "don't care".

You went out drinking until 1AM. Are you out of your mind?
