I was watching House they other day and he was sent to the state hospital for treatment. I dunno they really played up people with mental illness. Like we all walk around with a tic and screaming all the time, falling on the floor holding our head to stop the voices. like we all sit around shitting and peeing ourselves.
Dr. House show? I loved that. But since I got sz it triggers me now to see sick ppl and blood etc
Wait… You mean, we don’t?
Some mental illness is that bad.
A lot of us are blessed not to be that severe.
I guess I was just trying to poke a little fun at a stereotype.
Sometimes I have tics and pace around and talk to myself and rock back and forth to self-soothe.
Every once in a while I’ll think, wow if someone were watching me right now they’d think I was crazy.
Then I think, oh right, I am.
Some people do. Last time I was in the psych ward there was a grown woman who had the mind of a child and the hospital would only allow her so much liquid per day cos she kept peeing on herself. But even so tv shows do overdo it for sure
Haha you silly!
I understand the desire to say that people with schizophrenia are just like everyone else, and in essence that’s true, but at the same time we would be doing a great disservice to people with schizophrenia who are severely suffering by pretending they don’t exist.
All people with schizophrenia, regardless of level of function, need to be embraced.
In the two I’ve been in one requires that the patient is not low functioning and the other one has different wards depending on functioning, safety etc.
