Truman Syndrome

Remember the The Truman Show? The movie starring Jim Carey? Well look what is happening as life imitates art:

thetrumanshow

From NBC6:

NEW YORK — One man showed up at a federal building, asking for release from the reality show he was sure was being made of his life.Another was convinced his every move was secretly being filmed for a TV contest. A third believed everything – the news, his psychiatrists, the drugs they prescribed – was part of a phony, stage-set world with him as the involuntary star, like the 1998 movie “The Truman Show.”

Researchers have begun documenting what they dub the “Truman syndrome,” a delusion afflicting people who are convinced that their lives are secretly playing out on a reality TV show. Scientists say the disorder underscores the influence pop culture can have on mental conditions.

A few take pride in their imagined celebrity, but many are deeply upset at what feels like an Orwellian invasion of privacy. The man profiled in the British journal was diagnosed with schizophrenia and is unable to work. One of Gold’s patients planned to commit suicide if he couldn’t leave his supposed reality show.

“Is this just a new twist on an old paranoid or grandiose delusion … or is there sort of a perfect storm of the culture we’re in, in which fame holds such high value?”
