Cinema and Mental Health

I went to see Blue Jasmine recently. It was a good film with a real life kind of ending. Cate Blanchett was excellent as Jasmine. We get to see the side effects of a mental health problem but it's not mentioned in the film's dialogue - but Jasmine does take a lot of pills.

Reasons why Sheldon is not like me.

  1. Sheldon plays MMORPGs (World of Warcraft) online. I run a RPG (Traveller) IRL (In Real Life).
  2. Sheldon has a Doctorate in Physics. I have a Degree in I.T (Information Technology).
  3. Sheldon writes Java applets. I am a C++ programmer migrating from Windows to Linux.
  4. Sheldon reads Marvell Comics. I read Sandman graphics novels.
  5. Sheldon watches science fiction written by amateurs. I read science fiction written by gifted authors.
  6. Sheldon says Bazinga. I say Woot Woot.
  7. Sheldon endlessly promotes his high intelligence. I endlessly promote FLOSS (free) software especially Linux.

Reasons why Sheldon is like me.

  1. We've both got OCD.
  2. We're both highly susceptible to stimulants.

LGBT friendly.

It seems that prejudice against the LGBT people is still all too common. From my own limited experience of hate crime – as a schizophrenic – I have decided to delare myself as LGBT friendly.
