Weeping and weeping from the middle to the end.

The content of the film is very real, especially the symptoms of schizophrenia, the side effects after taking medication, and a series of symptoms of patients are vividly portrayed.

But I want to emphasize that schizophrenia and split personality are two completely different diseases. The expression in the movie may confuse everyone. The patient does not have split personality.

schizophrenia ≠ split personality

The extra people in the film are just the representation of the "voice" heard in the patient's mind. They are just a way of expressing the film. They are for everyone to better understand. After suffering from schizophrenia, the patient's cognition. , thinking, and logic will be tortured, interfered, and controlled by his auditory hallucinations and delusions, which makes the patient unable to distinguish between reality and hallucinations, which seriously affects daily life and behavior, rather than decomposing multiple personalities.

I also agree that intimacy is the worst version of ourselves. Honesty and love are not the antidote, but they can help us get through difficult times.

I also chose to fight my disease by accepting my true self. The side effects of taking medicine make me think what is the difference between this so-called "normal" and death?

Of course, it may also be because my schizophrenia symptoms are caused by depression, not pure schizophrenia, so it is slightly different from the disease performance of the protagonist in the movie.

But in general, mental illness and mental illness need to be paid attention and face up to by everyone.

Finally, I wish all who watch this film can receive light and love.
