Winnie the Pooh characters and their mental illnesses
There is one theory that says that every single character from the cartoon Winnie the Pooh has one mental illness. This cartoon is very popular among children. Children all around the world are watching this cartoon, and some of them are noticing that characters have some problems, they just see that characters are not behaving normal. Childrne do not know which illnesses they are suffering from, but they see when something is not as it should be.
I will here talk a bit about every single character and the problem of that character. Maybe this is just one silly theory, and maybe this is not true. But, no matter if the creators of this cartoon really wanted to shopw the illnesses, this cartoon is not for children. Maybe, children can adopt a modelof behaving that is not normal.
I will start my explanation with the main character of this cartoon. Cute yellow bear, who is all the time eating honey. Pooh is suffering from addiciton. He is addicted ot honey. He is eating honey all the time and he can not stop. He does not feel well when honey is not around. He eats only honey, and he eats too much honey. So, we can say that he also had a eating disorder. Also, something is wrong with Pooh's activity. He is not active at all. So, we can even say that he has catatonic stupor. He can stay for hours in the same position.
Piglet is Winnie's best friend. He is little pig, who is afraid of everything. Noises, shadows... everything is making him feel bad. He is constantly afraid, and because of that we can say that he is suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Maybe, Piglet had some kind of trauma and because of that he is now afraid of everything and everyone.
Tigger is favorite character to many fans of this cartoon, but he is also sick. His illness is Attention Deficit Hypreactivity Disorder. Many famous people were suffering from this. Even Albert Einstain had this problem. There is also a theory that Tigger had the Bipolar Disorder, but he do not have the depressed episodes, he is active all the time. He is constantly jumping on his tail, he is playing, singing...
Rabbit is the next character on this list. He is constantly nervous because something is wrong. He is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He has the obsessive toughts and because of that he is doing the compulsive acts. he just thinks that something horrible will happen if something is not done right. He needs order to feel good.
Donekey from the cartoon is depressed. He is in a very deep depression, na dhe seems like he needs help all the time. He is very sad, he feelis like nobody loves him and it seems to him that everyone is doing something against him.
I think that I do not need to explain this more. We all see that sometihng is wrong with the donkey, it is not normal to be sad all the time.
Next is the kangaroo Kanga. She has the Social Anxiety Disorder. She is constantly scared that someone will hurt her baby Roo, because of that she is protecting him all the time, and she also had the Heightened Parental Instinct.
Baby kangaroo Roo also has a mental disorder. He is actually autistic. He has his own world, and most of the time he is alone. Maybe his problem is caused by his mother, who is poretcing him all the time. He would maybe be different, if he lived his life in a different way.
Next one is Owl. She is suffering from Dyslexia and also from Short Term Memory Loss. Owl is mixing words, mixing letters in words and she had problems when she needs to remeber something. When you think about all other disorders, Owl's problems are not that serious. It is okay to forgive something sometimes, isn's it?
His problem is definitely the worst. As we already know, other characters are Christopher's toys. He is talking to his toys, and that is normal, all the children do, but his toys are also talking to him, and that is not normal. Also, his toys are appearing depending on his mood. That means that Cristopher is suffering from Schizophrenia. That is very serious mental illness. We can even say that all those toys do not exist at all. They are all in boy's head. As we know, Schizophrenia is affecting to many mental processes and functions. Because of that he is switching moods and as he is switching moods he is also switching his toys.
When you think about this cartoon in this way it seems very creepy. Maybe, after this you will think about letting your child watch it again.
