I hate that youtube has added a ‘like’ feature. That was THE thing I hated most about facebag. A lot of stupid people too stupid to leave an intelligible comment can now look vaguely in your general direction and ‘like’. We’re one step away from a friend rating system. It’s like those damn signs I see on libtards lawns- “Hate has no home here.” I hate that shit! I don’t have that sign so you think I’m a hater? Bad mimesis spirals out of control.

It’s odd how trends of videos make their way to the fore. I started seeing these videos of schizophrenic interviews come up in my youtube feed. Obviously I am not unique. They must be going around quite a bit to show up here.
Incidentally, you’re a smart cookie, Mandy! You did the smartest thing to get your content off youtube. Even smarter to leave teasers on youtube. I clicked the notifications so I will be here more often.

Hey, in the spirit of “No Agenda”- why don’t you have some ‘meet-ups”? I bet lots of people would attend.

Yeah, I get that too. My wife calls me a ‘freak magnet’. Not that you’re a freak. Maybe more sincere and honest than most.

This video reminds me about the time when i was studying to be a nurse. I worked in hospital and there was old lady who did not talk to anyone. I went to her room every day and i just were there for her. Old nurses said that “there is no point” doing that… When it was my last day working there this lady stood up from her bed and walked with me to the ward door. (she never came out from her room by herself) I still remember her and i learned that even some people are different mentally /suffering mental disease, they are the same with us from the heart. They deserve to be treated as well as anyone. With respect.
Thank you so, so much for doing this video!

Kat1111, Thanks for sharing your experience. I wonder the actual age of the old nurses you mentioned. When I was in Nursing School I was taught that it is therapeutic to sit with someone who is catatonic.

I once sat with a nonverbal student. He grabbed my hand and looked at me intensely. The impression I had was thank you.

I have been hospitalised before and diagnosed with the same condition. I now function normally (And like I use to). Watching this reminded me of how I was. I was constantly in a state of anxiety (did not know what that was at the time) and did not have the energy to properly communicate with people. In hospital, they basically watched me constantly, and I felt that I had no privacy whatsoever. I felt like an experiment of some sort and that everytime I did something, they would write it down. It was a horrible experience. No-one actually asked me what was wrong, instead they kept diagnosing me with all sorts of conditions and forcing me to eat and take medications. It killed my self-esteem even more and hence I became catatonic. If someone was very patient with me, I was actually able to respond like the guy in this video, otherwise it was always rushed and I could never muster the words, or energy to say them. Thank you for this video, and from experience this guy is going through hell in his head, I wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

One point of thought, I took many many piano lessons as a child and we’re taught to sit the way he’s sitting in the chair. Right leg forward to manipulate the pedals, left leg bent and used to help support the back for better posture. Fascinating video. His responses are well thought out almost making him feel robotic. He’s very intelligent that’s for sure.

I was just going to say that his mannerisms resembled an android at exact time you said he’s almost like computer. And yes, as “evolved” as our society claims to be, they still don’t like anyone who looks, acts, or thinks differently.

yes, we need places designated for those w/ peculiar processes
as you say, such places must be well supported to work

the drugs have not worked out, overall
let’s try things that can actually help people

Completely agree. And only very well trained people should work there and lots of cameras for patient safety. The problem last time we locked them up there was not enough money and too many staff that were underskilled

Hi Mandy I agree with you on bringing back Mental Hospitals that are run with High Standards. I currently work at a major public hospital in Adelaide, Sth Australia (S.A.) that has a small Mental Hospital attached. Knowing some of the staff there, Ive asked them what’s it like etc etc and the main thing that keeps coming out is the lack of enough beds for the amount of people that truly need to be in this type of institution for their own well being and obtain the correct treatment for their condition(s). As the current system of admitting them to stablise and get the levels of their medication(s) right over a short stay of a couple of days to a week or two is failing IMO. As Ive seen a lot of them returned on a regular basis and each time they return they seem to be more broken, more lost etc. So sending a lot of them home with a bag of goodies again IMO does not work. How can you truly put a monetary cost on Health? Be it normal hospital type of health or Mental Hospital type health….governments always seem to look at the $$$’s as… Read more »

This is an interesting man.. I wonder if the character Norman Bates was written based on him? He is different grim the schizophrenics thy I have dealt with in the way that he nearly makes sense. I wonder if he is currently medicated?

Mandy, I think we need to take into consideration to drugs they might have him on Clozapine and Antidepressants. The smirk is very interesting it is like his brain came into focus for a fraction of a second. Thanks

He just plain does not feel comfortable. Not in the surroundings not in even in his own skin. I almost wanna go hide under a rock for him.

It would help to get a history on him and find out when the abuse started, or if he was born with bad programming.

What abuse? I don’t see what abuse he experienced.

I think he has a genetic predisposition for a mental illness. AND THAT HIS FATHER CALLED HIM GAY. And he was. Also during this time: authority, experimentation, institutions, and justification.

This was very interesting for me as I’m studying marriage and family therapy. MFT’s do the same work as other counselors but specialize in systemic therapy. smile

They specialize in Relationships. The type of theoretical orientation they adhere to can be many schools of thought. Systems is only one of them.

Fascinating analysis of a broken mind, a bad machine. How does this happen to people?
Genetics, a chemical imbalance, both?
