TV and film that have impacted you and your mental illness

I don’t know if this is common, but TV and film have greatly impacted my illness.

I’ve had symptoms all my life and when the HBO show Oz started I was immediately obsessed.

At twelve.

Shouldn’t have been watching it, but I snuck to a neighbors house and watched every week.

It ended in 2003, spoilers, mostly everyone died.

I had my first real psychotic real episode that year in college.

It sounds dumb, but I couldn’t handle the loss, it was tragic.

Also, one of the few films I was allowed to watch as a kid was “Conan the Destroyer”,

I still see and hear Grace Jones all the time.

It’s strange how these influences have made a significant impression on my mental health.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Truman show and matrix.
All my life’s most difficult delusions to cure


Seems like those two films in particular messed up a lot of people.

Yes, they make me have distorted views of reality.
Also movies about aliens.
