Listen: Ashley Hamer, Andrews, Bahamas discussed on Curiosity Daily
"You live with someone. It's common for a bug like a cold or flu to spread from one person to another, but mental illness believe it or not it's possible. Here's the scoop on the phenomenon it's technically called shared psychotic disorder. But is most famously known as fully ado, the first case of the condition was documented in the nineteenth century with a thirty something married. Couple named Margaret and Michael they shared a delusion that people were sneaking into their house at night spreading dust, dropping pieces of fluff and wearing down the souls of the couples shoes shared psychotic disorder. Most often affects people in very close relationships like married couples siblings, and parents and children. They're also usually socially isolated and a lot of the time. They have a pre existing mental illness. The condition has lots of different forms, but the most common and oldest known one is called fully impose AI or imposed madness. In that form, the more dominating person in the pair spreads his or her delusion to the more submissive person. And that person doesn't resist the ideas another version is called fully stimul- tahnee or simultaneous madness. That's where two people with deep connection both experienced the delusion at once luckily in most of these forms. The cure is simple just separate the two people when that doesn't work psychiatrists can resort to medication or electro convulsive therapy. But you know, what? We all tend to share mental eccentricities with others. And that's not always a bad thing as Esther Inglis Arkell of I o nine puts it quote. There are few old married couples who don't share eccentricities there are few families or even close friendships that don't require both people to work with various mental glitches of the other. We all go a little crazy for the other people in our lives unquote, commune just give Ashley round of applause for nailing. All this French pronunciations.
