Breaking Amish: LA Demon Possession

Recommended Posts

So Betsy on Real Amish: LA keeps talking about having Demons in her head who talk to her. All the other cast members are worried about witchcraft, but I am thinking schizophrenia. Thoughts?

From what I understand about Schizophrenia, is that voices come from the outside, not from in one's heaed. I have a friend who was diagnosed with, and said voices are not inside her head, but outside, and that voices inside are something else. I am aware that one size does not fot all here. I have a nephew who was diagnosed with BPD when he was 9, and he hears doors slamming, but they are also not inside his head. I believe he sees shadows as well.

I don't watch tbis show, but I hoe this person gets proper medical care, instead of some sort of exorcism.

I'm really not sure what to make of Betsy. She seems pretty messed up in a lot of ways.

I hear voices sometimes. I am not schizophrenic. I am bipolar but you don't have to be schizophrenic to hear voices. The voices come from the outside of my head, not the inside. And despite what a lot of people may believe, I KNOW the voices aren't real. They also never say anything bad, it mostly sounds like garbled jibberish.

I think the difference with schizophrenia is that there's an absolute loss of reality. I at least am aware and know what I am experiencing isn't real.

Honestly, this is just a fake show and is probably scripted. The other Breaking Amish show also dealt with ghosts and psychics and stuff, and there was that episode where everyone though Kate was doing witchcraft. Kind of reminds me of the puritans, when the witch hysteria was going on.

Yea, for all we know, Bess ( the girl that's "possessed" ) is acting like she's possessed for the cameras.

I can't think of the term right now but there are individual who hear voice and have no mental illness. I know my husband has heard when he was younger and went on a gaming binge for almost 4 days. I've heard music inside/outside my head.

I feel like it is fake.

I think it's called auditory hallucinations. I do get the music inside my head but after I developed BP I, I started hearing garbled voices.

I think it's scripted twaddle meant to show religious beliefs (demons) vs mental illness....

I'm BPII and occasionally hear voices or loud sounds. Nothing special and I know they're fake.

Starcasm.net has pics of bro/sis Lizzie and what's his name with the bowl cut. Of course they lived a regular English life before pretending to be Amish. They also have pictures of crazy betsys wedding. Non Amish, strapless gown. Those chicks all had "makeovers" long before.

Iva said that she'd been to college and so had of course worn English clothes. Also, she was shown as supposedly being Jeremiah's Amish girlfriend in Ohio before suddenly becoming from Lancaster County, Pa.

I had auditory hallucinations for a short time after my baby daughter died. I'd swear I heard her crying. I don't think it's that uncommon to experience auditory hallucinations after a death.

The show is almost certainly scripted.

That said, I have visual, auditory and tactile hallucinations -- not frequently but on occasion and associated with cptsd - and I do not know they're fake in the moment. They're real enough that I'm often left shaken, afraid and feeling disturbed for the rest of the day. I have had some that were so vivid that I still remember them months or years later.

No demons, though. Not a one unless you count the spider crickets that won't stay out.

Oh, heck, maybe they ARE demons. Crap.

Ok, so I've seen two episodes so far and I just can't like any of the cast members. The show is so, SO bad. Worse than the first season. It's like TLC didn't even try this time around.

I think Matt's secret is that he's gay. I could be wrong, but that's my gut instinct.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
