Schizophrenia: Dr Manny Show on (new link)

This is a link to the Dr Manny show episode that was filmed in January. I think it is self-explanatory. Credit goes to Jessica Mulvihill, who did the interview, which was one of the best I have ever been “subjected” to (I have not yet found a word that adequately describes the process of being an interviewee…What do you call it when you have been interviewed, besides subjected to it? Any suggestions?) Anyhow, it was, despite the word, a very interesting and enjoyable interview experience.

  1. Thank you karen, i think i missed your comment before this. What wonderful things you said to me after this interview….i wish i had seen it or commented here before now. It means a lot, hearing your words even these three years later. Funny how, even when you dont realize you need a lift from words such as yours, you just happen upon them and wow, they lift your spirits anyway…i realize that wasnt exactly great grammar, but i trust you get my drift and i am trying to type this on an ipad on screen keyboard which is endlessly frustrating to me. Thanks again!


  2. Just wish to say your article is as amazing.
    The clearness in your post is simply spectacular and i can
    assume you are an expert on this subject.
    Well with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.


  3. Oh Pam! Good work! And to think, you were just being you!

    You came across as thoughtful, intelligent, and kind. What you said contradicted the way you said it, someone who knows their troubles and can point a finger at them makes the troubles seem separate. If you separate the symptoms from the person then we can give you more respect. People with this illness need respect. You did such a service with being public, I don’t know if it was easy for you or a drain.

    I am affected by what you said because I have an illness, and how you present yourself informs strangers and effects how they will treat me. So I feel that you did ME a service. Thank you, thank you!

    How close you are to your emotions, they are right there bubbling under the surface. I suppose this is something to draw on as an artist, you can tap them easily. But I never thought you out of control or overly emotional. Emotions shown, not hidden, make you seem honest and trustworthy. People zone in on someone who is showing emotions, we like to watch. It must be a human habit. And of course your sister got emotional because she loves you so much. But maybe too it was a twin phenomena, your emotional make-up has similarities.

    I’ve never seen you interviewed, or met you in person, so that is why I was so thrilled to meet you on the video.

    On a final note, I’m sorry you feel evil. You are the last person I would think of as evil. I know you’ve heard people say this to you before, but let me say, I think you are a good person. I don’t think you deserve to put yourself on fire. You don’t deserve the pain or the marks. Please don’t put yourself on fire anymore. Its a really, really bad idea. You don’t deserve punishment, what you deserve is reward.

    (I’d love to see some pictures of the necklaces you make too in addition to your artwork!)

    Take care of yourself,
    Karen Sorensen
