I know I’m annoying as fuck but damn I love this blog X3
Anyway I love hearing anything you say about my OCs and was wondering what you think of made up diseases and lesser know diseases, as I give my OCs things.
Phantasia- As you know, has LOS.
Chrysalis- Has a mental disease called Intermittent Explosive Disorder. IED is characterized by extreme expressions of anger, often to the point of uncontrollable rage. More importantly, the reaction is un-proportional to the situation at hand. As an example, losing a game- normal reaction: frustration, a possible darn or drats IED reaction- rage, destroying the game.
IED has 3 main identifying points:
1. Several episodes of impulsive behavior that result in serious damage to either persons or property.
2. The aggressiveness is grossly disproportionate to the circumstances or provocation.
3. The episodic violence cannot be better accounted for by another mental or physical medical condition.
Kazzoo- Suffers from Paranoid Schizophrenia. And I don’t mean the fake Schizophrenia added to an OC to make them “Insane”. Kazzoo sees and hears actual Schizophrenic hallucinations, some actually trying to get her to kill herself or inflict harm. Some are friendly, but some are just neutral. Odd figments of her mind that make her jumpy, afraid to go anyway. Living with the fear of what and who she’ll see when she opens a door, turns a corner.
Kazzoo has 3 stages: Fully medicated, Semi-medicated and Non-medicated. Fully medicated makes her act normal, but like other people on heavy and multiple medications, she feels like a zombie, not in control of her body and actions. Semi-medicated is her common stage until as of late, where she’s in a spiratic, uncontrollable state, doing things that mimic the actions of drug users. And finally, Non-medicated. Off her medication, Kazzoo is incredibly jumpy but fully aware of her surroundings and in control. This Kazzoo is more bleak and depressed than the other two stages.
Vexos: Has PTSD
Nyte: Nyte has a disease I made that has effects opposite of LOS. Nyte has Doubling Pupil Syndrome, or DPS. Instead of the normal 2 pupils irkens are shown with, someone with DPS has 4. It gives the overlapping pupil the appearance of having a darker ring around it, and it can be hard to spot, as I’ve seen some irkens with rings but it being normal. Well, the pupils are not always perfectly aligned, and often separate completely.
Overlapping pupils actually improve vision, especially that in the dark. But a big problem is eye sensitivity. People with DPS are more sensitive to light, and more prone to seizures from flashing lights. DPS also keeps the eyes in close shades, more so than a normal irken color pallet.
Saddie- Saddie has an eating disorder, that is actually mimicked in a real life diet. Raw Foodism is the act of eating raw, uncooked meat and vegetables. Saddie however, CANNOT bring herself to eat cooked anything, or anything even remotely warm. Although someone might classify her as having Pica, she doesn’t. Pica is the act of eating things with no nutrition value. She can eat vegetables, and meat still counts as meat if it’s raw. People with Pica more often eat things like dirt, rocks, paper, hair or in one severe case, a woman ate her husbands ashes.
Naug- Naug technically classifies as a “Little Person”, but he wasn’t born with Dwarfism. He stands at 4’6” (the limit being 4’10”). Naug’s size was caused by blunt trauma to the head, which stunted his growth. Naug also hit puberty later, and it didn’t actually do much. Naug’s voice is gender-neutral, and he is often mistaken for a female. Naug also doesn’t really have much muscle. He doesn’t actually have much of a sex drive (and not much of another thing hehe sorry but it’s unrealistic) because puberty didn’t really happen for him.
Maybe I went crazy with diseases, but I find it unrealistic a group as large as mine wouldn’t have a handful of people with mental and physical disabilities. Also, no one seems interested in these kind of problems. Schitzophrenia yeah but only the kind they know that makes their oc act more like a stereotype and less like a person with a real disease. And bipolar is played out. Now everyone wants to play the bipolar card to get away with being pissy. I’m actually showing real signs and I garentee half of the fandom with “bipolar ocs” don’t understand it. My sona Poog is considered Bipolar by her friends because of her mood swings but she actually suffers from a personality disorder.
Anyway hate to bother you with all my things but I like sharing and spreading knowledge.
YES. See folks, this is how you do mental illnesses. With the proper research and explaining that hey, this is an actual burden on the character that they have learned to live with, or haven’t gotten accustomed to and thus is a mental and emotional (or physical) drain on them all the time. It’s not edgy, it’s not ‘cool’, it’s real and scary for the victim. Thanks, Poog, for understanding this. :) It’s really interesting hearing about all these. That Raw Foodism one sounds like it’d be terrible to have. D: All of them do, really.
