In the movie “What About Bob” from the year of 1991, the main character, Bob possibly had borderline personal disorder and OCD. I did not chose this movie, I watched it in my high school psychology class. It was the first movie that I watched specifically because of a mental illness. In the movie, the mental illness wasn’t specifically specified by the psychologist. Bob knew something was wrong with him by showing that he always needed his psychologist.

Youth homelessness in Canada is not a new phenomenal, it has become more and more severe over the past 20 years. “One third of homeless individuals on the streets are under the age of 25”(Cino, Rose). It is a significant social justice issue in Canada. Within our community people are increasingly aware of the sight of youth sleeping in parks, asking for money and sitting on sidewalks. Youth homelessness is caused by tragic life occurrences such as abuse, illness or unemployment, while many falsely assume homelessness is a choice.
The main character of William Shakespeare’s tragedy is actually a confused person that’s stuck between two choices. Some may argue that he feels guilty for his father’s death and so it’s his duty to avenge it. While others may disagree and conclude that he is just a maniac who is both violent and dangerous. Hamlet passes through the lane of hesitancy, where he hesitates to kill King Claudius. As a matter of fact, the main conflict of Hamlet is that he feels both the need to solve the crime and punish the responsible. In addition, he suffers from hesitancy in the correctness of their actions. Throughout the play, Hamlet says, “That I, the son of a dear father murder'd, /Prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell.” (2.2.581-587) This
The results from numerous family studies suggest that borderline personality disorder is more prevalent in families with the disorder and somehow linked with mood disorders. Research on the possible cause for borderline personality disorder is still at the very early stages of discovery.
There are many different personality disorders in the world today. Personality disorders are “enduring patterns of thinking, feeling, or relating to others or controlling impulses that deviate from cultural expectations and cause distress or impaired functioning” (CITE BOOK). A type of this disorder is called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

In Herman Melville’s short story, “Bartleby, the Scrivener”, multiple foils can be observed. Foils being a contrast between two characters or even settings. However, this text will be centered on specifically two foils. The first one, the narrator being a foil of Bartleby, leading to the second foil; Nippers and/or Turkey being foils of Bartleby once again. As previously said, Bartleby the Scrivener and the narrator seem to be foils of each other. The protagonist, Bartleby, resists the crowd and the usual way of living. He lives against the norms: isolating himself from society and humanity.

In the television series Bates Motel, the main character suffers from mental illness. This mental illness is called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity and/or perception. Dissociative Identity Disorder involves the disturbance in which two or more distinct and separate personality states (or identities) control an individual 's behavior at various times. While the person is under the control of one identity, they cannot usually remember some of the events that occurred while other personalities were in control. The alters, or other identities, may exhibit differences in speech, mannerisms, attitudes, thoughts, and gender orientation. They might even have physical differences such as vision problems, or allergies.
Dissociative Identity Disorder, or better known as Multiple Personality disorder, is an extreme kind of dissociation where the affected individual creates distinct and different personalities in response to severe trauma or violently stressful situations. They remove themselves from any behaviors, memories, feelings and/or actions that would identify with the main personality, from the person that experienced the events. Each identity has its own name, gender, manner of speech and behavior as well as its own personal history.

I believe that it would be most appropriate to diagnose Miss Diagnosis with Borderline Personality Disorder, Moderate Bulimia. Borderline Personality disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of instability across multiple domains in life, including interpersonal relationship, self-image, and affect. People who have this disorder make decisions in the moment with no prior thought or planning. They are very impulsive. Additionally, the have a strong fear of abandonment, which often leads to desperate attempts to keep people close and irrational reason for ending relationships before the person can get abandoned. They have interpersonal paranoia and, often, parasuicidal behavior. Their reasoning and logic is often very flawed and it seems that they are very black and white with no understanding of the gray area. Additionally, their
