Winnie the Pooh and mental disorders
This came from a friend of one of the volunteers at my work. Mind you, this person has a mental illness himself, so we're all just making fun of ourselves.
Pooh Bear: Eating Disorder ("I wonder if there is any honey left in that pot?")
Piglet: Social Anxiety Disorder (Wouldn't you have trouble being social, if you were simultaneously worried about being made into breakfast?)
Tigger: ADHD (Bouncy, trouncy, fun fun fun fun FUN! Doesn't that explain it all?)
Rabbit: OCD (Sorry to say, out of all of these characters, I am most like Rabbit. What does that say about me?)
Owl: Dyslexia (Because there are so many other owls that can read, you know.)
Eeyore: Depression (You'd be depressed too, if that little black cloud followed you everywhere.)
Kanga and Roo: Dissociative Personality Disorder (I'm still trying to figure this one out.)
Christopher Robin: Schizophrenia
I asked the volunteer, "Why did he say that Christopher Robin has schizophrenia? He's the only normal one."
She replied, "Probably because he's seeing all of these animals that talk to him."
