Recently, I've been trying to distract myself with some good movies to watch. This week, I got hooked with psychological thrillers. So far, I've watched Shutter Island, Taking Shelter, Gothika, Number 23, etc.
Well, I know they aren't the best movies to uplift one's mood, but what the heck.
Anyway, psychological thrillers always involve characters with some psychological issues (duh!) and in the movies that I've watched so far, these issues are usually paranoia, schizophrenia, hallucinations, delusions, etc.
And the movies really do a good job at portraying the experience.
And as I watched how the characters with the psychological issues suffered, I asked myself "Oh wow, how does one indeed go through that difficult experience? I mean, can't he or she tell what is real or not? Oh, come on!"
Then it hit me.
With out current HA fears, I guess I don't have to look too far for the answer.
I am not saying that we are like those people with severe mental issues in the movies nor am I putting down those who are indeed suffering from some form of psychosis, but just the thought of our anxious actions and experiences with our health fears makes me want to locate myself in the larger picture.
Just like what is portrayed in the movies, I guess it all boils down on how irrational our fears are and how the people around us like our family and friends are affected in a number of ways because they worry about us too.
Just a ridiculously random thought.
