What are common mental Disorders in twins?
So I’m making a script, and I want it to be as acurate as possible so I need a bit of info. I need to know what kind of mental Disorders are common in twins. And I need to know if both twins would have it or just one. The twins in the movie need to be identical but only one have it. I need it to be a fairly strong disorder, nothing like Anxiety. anything with unpredictable behavior?
I cant really do an addiction, it’s a 10 year old girl in the movie, and I need it to be like something that would have someone put in an asylum or something, maybe something misunderstood.
maybe disorder was the wrong word, i mean like something that cant be helped like Autism and things in that sense. I don’t want to use Autism though, my friend has autistic twins and I dont want him to think i used his kids as characters
A 10 year old is extremely young to have any kind of Mental Disorder. Perhaps research behavioural Disorders In Children or maybe write about some sort of abuse or trauma that one twin suffered. Many, if not all, Mental Disorders have some kind of genetic component but, if you look at twin studies you’ll see that identical twins do not always develop the same issues. One twin could have Schizophrenia and the other not but, again, 10 is very young to have a character with a Mental Illness like that. It would distract from any sort of reality for your story line.
You could just have the child have an unspecified problem and do the story without writing about a diagnosis. Of course, I would refrain from writing about Mental Illness unless you’ve done a lot of research. There are enough stereotypes and stigma out there and adding to it would just be horrible.
Talk about common Mental Disorders
I just woke up about 1/2 hour ago from the worst nightmare of my life, no exaggeration. I was struggling to breath and could see someone close to me, but couldnt get them to hear me to help me and i was dying. Back in december i had a near death experience, i took two medications that had serious interactions and after going to sleep my breathing stopped and if it werent for my wife hearing my labored breathing would be dead right now. i was revived in the back of an ambulance after my breathing had stopped completly, with a breathing tube shoved down my nose surrounded by paramedics. Is the nightmare i had related to the real incident, or just a nightmare, or repressed memories, or what? Please unless you’re a jerk no stupid comments.
However, it is believed that dreams can be the doorway to wisdom being surfassed from your soul or subconcious being. I dreams are annalyzed properly, they can provide much knowledge.
Look closely at your life, what is missing? Have you earnestly understood the value your wife has for saving your life? Have you forgotten how enriched your life may be? Are you still carelessly using meds or other things that may harm what was given back to you(your life). Have you learned what was intended for you to learn from your mishap.
Your answers to these questions will tell you. If you have not gained the wisdom from your experience, than you can probably expect to have that or a similar dream again.
