As the book starts Holden describes his childhood and how he has been kicked out of several school and once more again from his currently school, giving a sense of irresponsibility and no care in the world. Holden later on mentioned slowly the loss of his brother due to leukemia and how he reacted outrageously by breaking the windows of his garage home. As a reader one would view that behavior as abnormal, but Peter Shaw descried it as a normal behavior for a fictional character in the 1950s and by mentioning that Holden, “is presenting in a somewhat different manner than are the sentimentalized young people in other novels if his period” (par. 3), admitting that Holden was somewhat of an outcast of a character even for its time he is still considered normal. Shaw also challenged the reader’s view of Holden by emphasizing that Holden is not a real person, but a fiction character developed in the 1950s and in fact a mad psychological character is normal and made the reading rather more interesting and acceptable during that time. As readers someone may come across as understanding Holden’s behavior due to a loss and everyone mourns differently and as Shaw said, “ the one period of life in which abnormal behavior is common rather than exceptional” (par.

Warhol was thirteen years old when he watched his father slowly wither away from peritonitis for three painstaking days (Greenberg & Jordan, 2004). From the time Andrej passed away in the family’s living room, Warhol begged to stay with his aunt and cousin until the funeral was officially over due to his phobia of death. Instead of attending funerals, Warhol believed that they were too abstract and preferred imagining the people who died had simply went on a shopping errand. Warhol’s fear of dying is quite common among many humans that do not accept their impending fate.
It shows dehumanization because he was allowed to watch while they were stuffing their faces with food, while he was not being fed at all and starving.

My brother has been clean and sober for about a year. During the two years of his addiction I found it difficult to live with him and even be around him. I was never able to talk to my brother about his addiction because the drugs had transformed him into a completely different person as if someone else was living in his skin. I lived in complete fear of my brother. I didn’t feel comfortable at home whenever my brother was there, so I stayed out late to avoid being at home.

As you are aware, there was no specific trigger and given his childhood asthma and some chest tightness that was associated with it, thank you for trialling him on Flutiform. He trialled this at the same time as he was trialling Nasonex given his chronic rhinitis.

He has not had any change in his home environment and he has no pets.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Only in darkness can you see the stars.” When I was ten I had a muscle spasm, and I did not tell anyone because I thought I had a brain tumor and my parents would not be able to afford treatment. The spasms continued to progress over the years and I still thought I was going to die, until three years later when I figured I had not died yet, so it must be something else. Being an immature child, I never told anyone. Most of the time I kept them hidden or when someone did notice I told them I had ‘cold shakes’.
