Oprah Meets a Schizophrenic Child With Over 200 Imaginary Friends | The Oprah Winfrey Show | OWN
I know it sounds weird, but I think she has an understanding that many of us do not have, but doesn’t know how to express it in a way we’d understand. “The border between your world and mine” that’s incredible. There’s many people that know about the veil between the world we see and the worlds we don’t. And we can’t judge Oprah for being impatient or feeling challenged in a situation like this, she’s obviously never dealt with something like this before.
Oprah is so misled. This poor girl, Jani, is on such strong psychotropic drugs that she can barely function. Which then gets blamed on her 'schizophrenia' and hallucinations because that's what gets media attention. When Jani was just a baby in a crib and focusing on objects as any baby would, her mother was already accusing her of hallucinating. Growing up, she got more positive attention from her parents when she sounded 'schizophrenic'. I'm hoping that when she's able to free herself from this madness, that she writes a tell-all book exposing what's been done to her and her brother.
I have borderline personality disorder.. I cannot even imagine what this girl has had to go through as a child.. I got diagnosed with BPD at 17 which is not common because you generally have to be 18 and my BPD started manifesting I'd say around 13.. I had been in many hospitals and mental health residential by the time and was misdiagnosed with bipolar amidst other illnesses and so the psychiatrist just went ahead and diagnosed me a year early.. But a 7 year old kid?... Wow... That is horrible... I was abused as a kid, but other than that, I cannot relate in anyway of having to suffer to that extreme in your own head as a young child.. It seems her parents are supportive though, which most certainly is a good thing.. I hope she gets the necessary help she needs and that they can help to control symptoms by the time her brain fully matures.. I in a way think it is good they caught it early, so that they can start working to manage it now.. I wonder how much it will progress as her brain develops... Oprah I don't think was actively trying to be rude, but I do think that this girl should've been respected a bit more.. And also, who is to say she wanted the when world to know of her schizophrenia?.. She is not old or stable enough to make that decision, and yet it was forced upon her.. Mental illness is so very stigmatized, and this poor girl now will be subjected to stigma globally.. I really hope she doesn't have to suffer with such severity lifelong, which if she is only 7 and having it this full-blown, it worries me for her welfare.
what good would it do Oprah to say u think maybe you're different?go practice falling down Oprah Winfrey hahahaha what good would it do to talk to a child scizophrenic if u are not a doctor Oprah Winfrey? duh she didn't do a thing to help this child
its interesting to me that some of the comments say oprah isnt qualified or should mind her own business, well then why did these viewers click on this video, if oprah is expoiting this girl then what are you doing watching????? hypocrites
Did anybody catch that each time she said she didnt want to talk, she not talking to Oprah shes talking to 400 and she walking away from them shes not walking away from Oprah, even at the beginning she said she didn't want to stay inside. She actually wants to talk to Oprah but the imagaries friends keeps bothering her
I love Oprah, normally. But her mannerism in this "interview" made me sick. She was just snickering and joking with her cameraman and laughing at the girl. She believes these animals and people are there. It's not make believe to her. Shes not being silly. Oprah is not trained to talk with this girl and keep her calm. I felt so bad for her. I'm sure she gets annoyed by everyone's questions but this just felt forced and wierd
i encourage all parents to submit your children to God. to the parents of this child, if you have never prayed before, begin praying now, and never stopped, even if she begins to scream. these may only be able to be removed through sincere fasting and praying.
Having seen the childs eyes now i would say that she is victim of satanic/ritual abuse including the other worst abuses. it turns their skin or skin around the eyes grey. I saw a baby once , state controlled, it was grey , totally grey skinned and had no reaction to childrens toys i picked up and tryed to engage it with, it was very disturbing and being taken around by a 'fake mother' although at the time i did not know what she was or who she was she just came to me for a hairdressing consultation. IT totally spooked me out and only i realised what must of occurred to the child and that it was not even hers.
Give me 1 min with this child and she will be healed! She only needs deliverance from the demonic world. This is not a mental illness other than demons have possessed this child.
Sad that the truth hasnt been given to this family.
She does not have schizophrenia. She is clearly affected by autism but that wasn't going to make mamma famous. Oprah Winfrey I suggest you do some research. This kids mom I strongly suspect has mbp and you gave her the fame she craved. This child and her brother ( who are both being fed toxic and life limiting amounts of unnecessary medication) need help now. Help them Oprah. Someone needs to!
Oprah you DUMBASS. When she says she “doesn’t want to talk!” SHE IS TALKING TO THE VOICES IN HER HEAD. Educate yourself about mental illnesses before you sit a child down or anyone else for that matter, and put them on display, while being totally insensitive and rude.
Opera did alot of damage, as are the parents, one should never try to interact with someone’s hallucinations... EVER. It’s bad enough the person with this disorder can’t distinguish reality, very well, if at all and including the natural with the illusory, is a concoction unto death.
Ummm hello people. She is talking to demons. They need to tell them they need to leave in the name of Jesus and rebuke them. This is scary. I’ve seen demons. I can’t believe she’s not scared. They are scary.
2:29 mano nessa parte que ela se senta, dá pra perceber claramente que todos esse amigos imaginários estão ao redor. Ela fica virando o rosto e olhando como se os amigos estivessem falando com ela e ela não sabe se ouve eles ou a Oprah
E quando a Oprah pergunta onde a 24hours mora, a Jani fala "não posso te contar" enquanto olha pra essa amiga dela e ela até sorri, dá pra perceber que todos os amigos da Jani resolveram ficar ao redor dela, por isso ela não fica quieta
Stories like this are on the show called "Go The Distance with Cherrie Garden." They go even deeper into the genesis, the trauma, and the deliverance of the ordeal. Log on to www.CherrieGarden.tv right now to see what I mean.
I have a special needs kid. I've had ppl react much much much worse to my child. So I didn't see the so called rudeness with Opras approach. I mean the parents did invite her into their lives. And if your not familiar then there will be an automatic ignorance she didn't yet at the girl or anything. Overreacting
Hello I'm Joel kasolo mukabire...I'm from Uganda...n I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder...it was rough for me at the beginning but now I'm learning to cope with it...thanks for the you tube channels...so enlightening...
I got diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when I was 12. I was overly medicated and in one of my states last children hospital. I learned not to talk about things and to this day I refuse to say anything. I'm now diagnosed with severe depression and social anxiety. I never tell anyone about anything or mention the voices. She clearly needs attention, I learned the hard way and I will never admit to anything
It's a chemical imbalance in the brain, etc. This info may help
So very sad that this little girl has never been treated with the orthomolecular approach. It restores one's mental health rather than just covering up the symptoms with chemical straightjackets. All Americans (and everyone else!) deserve to know about this wonderful type of care. It's safe, effective, inexpensive, non-proprietary and has been in use since the 1950s. Conventional psychiatry brings in billions of dollars in profits while orthomolecular only brings in pennies. Believe it or not, there is no law that says psychiatrists have to treat patients so that they actually recover. --Linda from Linda Van Zandt's Mental Health Recovery Channel.
When you make people with schizophrenia do things they don’t wanna do it triggers them and they have episodes . My son is 12 with schizophrenia and he like me to treat him like everyone else and I don’t treat him different
Schizophrenia is actually demons that come and live in people. My Apostle seen a girl in a mental hospital that the Drs thought she was schizophrenic and she got prayed for and the demon left her and she was diagnosed as well.
do further research, donate to cause do anything positive to support those suffering from a disorder and your perspective will change, there is plenty wrong with this but we can only be responsible for the change WE wish to see in the world.
I knw someone with the same situation and it's not hallucinations it's real the person was possessed by demons and we got someone who has the ability to talk to them through spiritual contact and he told them to leave the this person or else he'll prison them, the demons left and now this person is living a normal life no more invisible friends or fits
I know what i m about to say might sound funny to u. But i will say it anyway. This child is not suffering from any disease or disorder. She is simply possessed by what we Muslims called Jinns or evil spirits. In Nigeria where i live we have many children with these same symptoms. My own blood brother had it for two years and got cured. The cure is very simple and easy, but might be difficult for you. The cure is just to recite the Muslim Quran in her ears. If you don't believe me, get any audio or video of recitation of Quran and play it close to her for 30 mins. Find chapter 2 of the Qur'an and play it. If she is possessed by jinns, she will begin to shout, her voice will change, she will become extra powerful, she will be closing her eyes, her fingers will bend, she will be violent and asking for the audio to be stopped. If u see that, that's not her, it is the evil spirit. If you want the real medicine, find a video on YouTube of a UK imam who recites it for people and get cured. Search for Abu Nadeer al ruqya. This man is in UK. He has a healing centre. And people get cured. He helped my cousin. Now she is fine. Do not underestimate this bcos we come from different religions, keep that aside and help this kid. I pray for your daughter. Amen.
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
