    Ms. Chamaa, I just started watching the show and he presents to me as someone who might have temporal lobe epilepsy. Of course I don’t expect a tv drama to nail any disorder very well; they have to make it more rational than it is, but the staring, the hallucinations, the memory forgetting and recalling, the expanded emotional sensitivity, the depression, the otherworldliness all strike me as similar to TLE.

      You could be right. I’m no doctor. I just thought the experiences mirrored schizophrenia. I do know that many disorders share symptoms. Thanks for your input!

    Deeply interested by this film, and moved by it. I always thought I was alone with this… I wish I could get hold of the questions she was trying to ask River in the first session… After a traumatic event I started to rationalize with myself in my head, Trouble was there are too many of me in there..:-(
