You can be a lunatic and make sense about something. The fact that he was a little crazy means nothing about what he said. Isaac Newton was pretty crazy. Are you going to discredit Newton's law because of that?
Physics is empirical. Psychology is not :P And Freud's mostly viewed as wrong about everything except a few of his most basic ideas (the unconscious and defense mechanisms).
