Themes of Schizophrenia in Media

Have you guys noticed that they’re everywhere? All over the place, most of the time it doesn’t even seem intentional. There is a very large presence in much of tv, movies, books, music, you can find it everywhere.

I find it’s most often not directly referred to but emulate the symptoms and tribulations in many ways. Mental illness seems to be the artistic struggle, for all its vast perceptual possibility.

Even still, it’s presented in a way that makes it clear nobody understands what they’re talking about when they do talk about it.

I have noticed it. In Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, magic and fairies particularly seem to operate as psychosis. I love the book so much but also find it somewhat triggering, as I recognize so much of what’s described, and also have a personality and background that leans longingly towards acceptance of fairies and magic.

Nono, that’s not what i’m talking about. That’s very direct, ■■■■■■■■ level ■■■■. I’m talking about stuff like this:

This is the best example of derealization i’ve seen, and I doubt anybody realized it. Stuff like that is everywhere.

I just watched an episode on Law and Order about a schizophrenic man. He was violent, unfortunately. They’ve had other episodes with violent schizophrenics on them. They do seem to think that being sz removes a lot of legal responsibility for a person’s infractions.

Batman is one of the worst about that sortof thing. I’ve always hated batman

Let’s face it. Violence is often associated with sz. In reality schizophrenics are more likely to be the victims of violence than its perpetrators.

Yep Yep Yep Yep Yep …

I worry about becoming violent. I lean that way sometimes.

I have quite a bit of anger myself. It would take a lot for me to get physically violent, though. I can get emotionally violent when under great stress. So far just about all my acts of violence have been in self defense.

I’m a victim of child abuse and was diagnosed with PTSD when I was younger, i’ve always been a very angry person
