Are celebrities mentally ill? A review of celebrities with schizophrenia

Born in 1928, John Nash is a famous economist, mathematician and founder of game theory. But he is eccentric and eccentric, and indulges in his own world all day long.

he once appeared at the new year’s annual meeting in a baby’s clothes, holding a copy of the New York Times to the full number of professors, claiming that he was collecting some information from the newspapers in his hand, either from mysterious forces in the universe or from some foreign government, and only he could interpret the alien code.

and he also had serious psychosis symptoms such as speech hallucination. At the age of 30, he just got a tenure at MIT and was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

for many years after that, his eyes were dull, his hair was unkempt, and his beard was like weeds. He walked back and forth barefoot in Princeton, and people who passed by tried to avoid him.

more than 20 years after that, he repeatedly went into and out of the hospital for many times, but his condition was not relieved. In this way, he was almost forgotten by the academic community.

Professor Kuhn supported him: if a cancer patient can win a prize, why not a mental patient? Finally, the Royal Swedish society finally decided to award Dr. Nash.

the film is an Oscar winning film adapted from the biography of the same name. This film is based on the real and touching story of John Nash, his wife, friends and colleagues in Princeton, and artistically reproduces the legendary story of caring for genius.

he once cut off his ears and gave them to others. When his illness broke out, he used to eat the paint used for painting, and walked around the room for hours, holding a posture for a long time.

with the progress of medicine, the remission and cure rate of schizophrenia are greatly increased, and the prognosis is gradually improved. In schizophrenic patients, such as Nash, Van Gogh and so on, are not a few.

it can be seen from their stories that schizophrenics also have hope and future. As long as there is a good environment and guidance, the disease can be alleviated and gradually recovered. The schizophrenic patients can also adapt to work, live and communicate with each other like normal people, and return to society.
