Transcript: What is the narrator's illness in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell Tale Heart"? My Hypothesis My Hypothesis My hypothesis of the narrator's disease in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell Tale Heart" is a combination of Phobia and Schizophrenia. Phobia Phobia Phobia is one type of some anxiety disorders, and is a very powerful aversion of an object, creature, or thing that presents little or no real threat ("Specific Phobias"). The narrator shows signs of phobia of the old man's "Vulture Eye." The narrator spends hours watching the old man at night stealthily using his lantern to shine only on the eye. After murdering the old man, he is happy that he will never see the evil eye again. Symptoms Most patients don't have the same phobia as others and not in the same amounts. Patients usually try to aviod their phobia, but if they can't get away from their phobia these symptoms occur: Trembling Shortness Of Breath A Strong Desire To Get Away Rapid Heartbeat Fear And/Or Panic ("Phobias") Symptoms Background Information Backround Information Phobias can be very specific, like the narrator's phobia of the old man's "Vulture Eye;" then there are more general phobias like spiders. (Ribeiro) Treatments Most patients can be cured of their phobia. These treatments include: Medicine Therapy Both ("Phobias") Treatments Extra Information Experiencing phobias may limit work efficiency, disrupt a relationship, disgruntle everyday life, and/or reduce self esteem. Some phobias begin in childhood and subside after a period of time. Some terrors in phobia may not make any sense, but patients feel helpless against it. ("Specific Phobias") Extra Information Schizophrenia Schizophrenia Schizophrenia is one of several critical brain illnesses. Some patients who have this illness may hear things that aren't there like voices. Patients may also experience a fear that others are trying to harm them ("Schizophrenia" MedlinePlus). The narrator admits to having an illness, and I believe that he is referring to schizophrenia. The main symptom is the narrator's hallucination of hearing the old man's heartbeat grow after the old man is dead. He even thinks the policemen can hear the heartbeat and are just messing with him by not speaking about it. This is paranoia and a delusion. Also, the narrator spends hours and hours just watching the old man and planning the murder. The narrator has no sense of real time or real life and uses violence to solve his problem. Symptoms Symptoms Symptoms of schizophrenia may vary per patient but they include: Hallucinations Movement Disorders Lack In Expressions Anosognosia ("Lack Of Insight") Violent Actions Thought Disorders Reduced happiness in daily pleasers Delusions Muddled Speech ("Schizophrenia" NAMI) (sawerhaq) Background Information Backround Information No one know for sure what causes schizophrenia, but researchers and scientists have associated schizophrenia to many feasible causes like the features of brain chemistry and construction, and environmental causes. Sadly, there is no singular, easy treatment has been found for this illness. But there are treament that over time help keep schizophrenia. ("Schizoprhrenia" NIMH) Treatments Treatments Though there is no cure for schizophrenia, there are possible treatments that will stabilize when the symptoms. Such as: Therapy Phycosocial Rehabilition Medication Synthesis Of All ("Schizophrenia" NAMI) Extra Information Schizophrenia can occasionally run in families. Researchers and scientists have confidence that several varying genes may expand the risk of schizophrenia. Scientsts also think that a lack of harmony in the brain may cause chemical reactions, creating schizophrenia. ("Schizophrenia" NIMH) Extra Information Conclusion Conclusion After researching various types of mental illnesses, I feel that my hypothesis is correct. The narrator shows both a phobia and Schizophrenia as he becomes obsessed with the old man's eye, uses violence to destroy the old man, and hallucinates the sound of the old man's heart beat.

Transcript: Nathan Bell Ekbom Syndrome (Delusional Parasitosis) Definition Definition Ekbom syndrome or Delusional parasitosis is a psychiatric disorder characterized by the patient's conviction that he or she is infested with parasites Noticeable Characteristics Noticeable Characteristics If somebody has delusional parasitosis they'll often describe an infestation of parasites in their house. The patient can experience sensations of itching, burning, crawling and biting that may lead to self-mutilation as the sufferer attempts to dig out the parasites. This causes minor scratches to gouged out pits and ulcers. Risk Factors Risk Factors Delusional parasitosis can occur in people of all ages, but the chances are higher among middle-aged or elderly women and young men with a history of abuse or methamphetamines or cocaine. Other risk factors are Young females who are divorced and have children Young female who have a history of drug abuse Low income or unemployment. Bascally things that are hard to go through Delusional parasitosis mostly occurs in white - middle aged or elderly women, but people of all races, sex and age can be affected. Type of people Type of people Antipsychotics such as pimozide, risperidone and olanzapine have all been used but should only be started under supervision from a dermatologist or psychiatrist. Prevention Prevention Symptoms: 1. May have hired several exterminators, entomologists, parasitologists, or hygienists 2. the “matchbox sign” which is where the sufferer offers for examination specimens kept in a small container such as a matchbox. Specimens usually consist of fragments of skin, hair, dried blood or scabs. Sometimes they may include living organisms such as ants or flies. Symptoms Symptoms Treatment Treatment To treat patients that have delusional parasitosis is often difficult because they are convinced of a infestation of “their” parasites. Sometimes the disease may get better and go away on its own but usally treatment with psychotropic medications is usually necessary. Often management of these patients is best handled through the cooperation of dermatologists, psychiatrists and entomologists. Antipsychotics such as pimozide, risperidone and olanzapine have all been used but should only be started under supervision from a dermatologist or psychiatrist. Medication Medication Do not “use the delusion” to encourage patients to accept certain treatments. For example getting a patient to take a psychotropic drug by telling them that this will “kill the parasites” only reinforces and validates their delusion. What to do What to do Some patients may be able to live with their infestation without drug or psychiatric treatment by receiving appropriate reassurance, support and attention from their doctor or dermatologist. Sometimes Sometimes Delusional parasitosis can be primary, secondary, or organic. Primary delusional parasitosis consists primarily of a single delusional belief of having been infested by parasites and comes under monosymptomatic hypochondriacal psychosis. Secondary delusional parasitosis can occur in the context of other mental disorder like schizophrenia, depression, and dementia. Organic delusional parasitosis occurs secondary to organic illness like hypothyroidism, vitamin B12 deficiency, diabetes, cerebrovascular disease, cocaine intoxication, HIV, allergies, and menopausal state. About the illness About the illness A patient that was experiencing delusional parasitosis had a lot of distress so much so that he convinced himself to get psychiatric attention. Brain Brain Help a friend Help Try to convince them to see a psychiatrist. In general it is very hard to convince someone that they have delusional parasitosis because they think that the parasites are real. To help yourself get diagnosed by a doctor and if you do have delusional parasitosis see a psychiatrist. Help yourself Help yourself The disorder affects over a 100,000 americans. Some that have delusional parasitosis might try to self treat there themselves with chemicals and harsh soaps because they are trying to get the “parasites” out of their body.
