I always use the phrase, suffering from schizophrenia and NOT schizophrenic but recently I read about schizophrenic weather.
A phone company advertised; This is a crazy, generous offer.
On NBC’s America has talent; one of the judges commented that a group of contestants resembled people who had exited a mental institution.
Dr. Phil, the TV pop psychologist tried to reassure a woman with compulsive behavior that she was not insane because insane people suck on rocks and bark at the moon. I have no doubt that he regretted saying it the moment it was out of his mouth, but the damage was done.
Brian Williams, anchor on NBC’s Evening News, referred to a kidnapper and rapist as arguably the face of mental illness. He apologized.
CBS announced that they are about to premiere a new show called The Crazy Ones starring Robin Williams, who in real life copes with bipolar disorder, but after checking previews, it appears as if the show has nothing to do with mental illness. It’s a comedy where crazy ideas turn into genius.
Is it necessary to hear this kind of thing? Think of how a person who has a mental illness must feel, please.
