2006年12月我去宋新平医生的诊所接受了治疗. 在此之前, 我有很多症状: 尿频,
尿急, 前列腺胀痛, 射精痛, 疲劳无力, 小腹痛, 前列腺, 尿道, 膀胱灼热.
我的症状非常严重已经影响了我的生活质量. 我去看了德国, 意大利, 保加利亚,
塞尔维亚, 斯洛文尼亚的很多知名医生. 在保加利亚, 在详细的检查分析后,
由于我排尿困难, 他们说我尿道有堵塞, 于是他们给我做了手术,
但是没有起作用. 在德国, 在做了详细的检查如X线体层照相术, B超等,
他们说我很健康,没有任何问题, 但是我的健康状况却越来越差. 在斯洛文尼亚
他们也都说我完全健康. 在贝尔格莱德, 他们说我有慢性前列腺炎,
他们对我的情况无可奈何. 在意大利(2005-2006), 我去了两家医院.
所有病原体也没有了. 我的生活恢复正常了。 宋新平：
以下是原文 I am a 38 years old man from Yugoslavia. I have been
suffering from Chronic Prostatitis for about 6 years. I went to see Dr.
Song in December of this year . Prior to making the trip I was suffering
from Urgency, frequency, prostate pain and pressure, painful
ejaculation, being tired all of the time, and pain in the abdomen,
burning in prostate, urethral and bladder. My symptoms were very severe
and really diminished my quality of life. I had been to many well-known
urologists in the world such as in Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, and
Slovenia. In Bulgaria , after detail analysis, one doctor give me
antibiotics against STD, but every time symptoms relapse two months’
later. Because of my difficult urination, one time they say to me I had
urethral stricture, they gave me a surgeon, and it did not help. In
Germany after detail analysis such as cytoskopy, tomography,
fluorometry, ultrasound etc. they say to me that I am completely healthy
and everything is OK. But my health every time gets worse and worse. In
Slovenia , they also said I am completely healthy. In Balgrade, they
said I have chronical prostatitis, and said this disease is incurable.
They gave me some herbs medicine to keep my situation. They could not do
too much for my case. In Italy (2005-2006), I have visited two
hospitals. I got some treatment from well-known doctors. The treatment
was quite effective. But my symptoms relapse three month’s later. I was
diagnosed that I had calcification in my prostate. And the calcification
caused my difficulty urination. Doctors recommended me TURP operations
to solve difficulty urination. But I thought this operation was risky
and decided not to take it. One of my friends recommended me to a famous
hospital in Hangzhou, China. I received twelve days treatment with
slight improvement of my symptoms. I kept searching good treatment on
the Internet. Finally, I found Dr. Song. After I read Dr. Song’s
website, I started to believe Dr. Song’s treatment. I told myself this
would be my last treatment. If this treatment would not work for me, I
will stop to look for any other treatment. I was tired from the
treatment. I came to Dr. Song’s clinic on December 8th, 2006. Dr. Song
provided me a completely lab test together with detail analysis and
ultrasound. Dr. Song conducted lab test and found out mycoplasma
genitalium, ureaplasma urealyticum, staphylococcus aurous and
corynebacteria. Checked by Ultrasound, I have calcification in both
sides of my prostate, 15mm*10mm, 17mm*14mm. And there are many small
calcifications near my urethra. The calcifications caused me difficult
to urinate and ejaculate. After three days’ treatment, my pain started
to reduce. After Dr. Song eradicated all my pathogens, he focused on my
calcification. I saw great amount of deposits in my urine. Through one
course of treatment, most of symptoms disappeared. Rechecked by
Ultrasound, my calcifications have almost gone. Rechecked by lab
testing, all pathogens have gone. My life changed to normal. My dream of
a completely cure of prostatitis is realized. I Thanked Dr. Song and his
clinic. I hope they will continue to cure other people who are suffering
from this “incurable” disease. I highly recommend Dr Song’s treatment to
those people who are suffering from chronical prostatitis. Since I have
been suffering from this disease for many
Andrew Laeddis was a soldier who joined the World War Two and killed
Germany prisoners of war in death camp. Then he became a U.S. Marshal in
Boston, and became alcoholics and ignored his suicidal-wife. Her wife
burned their apartment then drowning their three kids in the back yard.
Andrew killed his wife to “set her free” and burned their house.
According to what Dr. Cawley explain his symptoms at the very end: “You
crime is terrible, one you can’t forgive yourself for, so you invented
another self. You create a story which you are not a murderer, you’re a
hero, still a U.S Marshal, only here because of a case”.
This movie is based on a mental hospital/prison, so most of people in it
have one kind or another abnormality. But I only focus on Andrew’s
disorders. Most mental illness patient will hold multiple disorders,
like he also has persecution mania and proclivity for violence.
Before diagnosis his disorder, I think the background knowledge and
social factors introduction for that period is necessary. The World War
Two was end by 1945 and this story happened in 1954. During that time,
biological perspective and psychopharmacology perspective for abnormal
psychology’s treatment had a debate/war. Former emphasized use surgical
intervention: psychosurgery, like Tran’s orbital lobotomy or
chlorpromazine drug, to solve the problem thorough and quick. But the
latter believe that spend time and money to make people “unless happy
and peace” is worthy. Andrew is a serious DID patient who suffered the
war and fratricidal, also with propensity to violence and paranoia. This
movie describes the last psychopharmacological treatment, role play
treatment, which cued him finally.
According to the DSM-IV-TR 5-axis to diagnosis his symptom:
Axis I: Schizophrenia and PTSD. DID, single episode. This is obvious
in the whole movie.
Axis II: paranoid personality disorder and antisocial personality
Axis III: the movie does not mention if he overdose or not. But he had
been used chlorpromazine for two years and his hands will shake badly
when he stopped taking the pills. Also, his migraine may be caused by
medical conditions, too. (This is not clear in the movie).
Axis IV: stressor from storm or water will cause migraine or vomit.
Any other things about Nazi/German will cause flash back to the death
camp and remember the Jewish music at that day.
Axis V: I am affair that Andrew’s GAF score is lower than 30.
This is so unfortunate that Andrew has so many problems. The film is
only two hours but we can see the problem from his behaviors. According
to diagnosis from movie: “patient is highly intelligent, highly
delusional decorated army veteran, present for the liberation of Dachau
former U.S. Marshal. Known proclivity from violence, shows no remorse
for his crime because he denies the crime ever took place. Highly
developed and fantastical narratives which preclude facing the truth of
First, he is obviously suffered dissociative identical disorder. He
creates another self to avoid the trauma. That what the whole movie
talking about. Here I had love to mention Defense mechanism which is
mentioned several times in movie. Defense mechanisms are largely
unconscious reactions that protect a person from unpleasant emotions
such as anxiety and guilt. (Psychology: Themes & Variations 8E Briefer
Version, Wayne Weiten, P382~383) People use mainly six ways to avoid
negative emotions: repression, projection, displacement, reaction
formation, regression, rationalization and identification.
He use repression to keeping distressing thoughts and feelings buried in
the unconscious lead him only thinks about the horrible past when he
dreaming. He dreamed about his wife and house at the first time, and the
Dachau camp at the second time. After he waked up, he became Marshal
again. He use identification to imagine he is still a marshal and never
killed anybody to avoid his guilt. He used projection to create another
women named Rachel Solando (According to law of 4, Rachel Solando is
equal to Dolores Chanal, which is the name of his wife before they
married). She “drown her three kids one by one in the lack at back
yard”. He put his memory to another unreal person to protect himself.
(As I mentioned law of 4 already, you may notice that the Marshal named
Edward Daniels is himself, because this name is equal to Andrew Leaddis.
If not, you will know at the end of movie)
The most interesting defense mechanism is rationalization. To make his
fantasy world keep going, he rationalized all the usual things, no
matter how Dr. Cawley and Dr. Sheehan imply him. So Dr. Cawley showdown
at the end:
1: last night, Rachel disappeared between 10~12, and today, he is on the
ship to Shutter Island with a new partner Chuck, who is from Seattle,
3000 miles away.
2: Chuck is worked four years in federal government but he cannot take
out his gun smoothly.
3: Rachel’s room is in B part which is male ward and her shoes are huge
4: Rachel was found without any scratches on the feet, but it was storm
outside and she ran away without shoes on.
There are still more this kind of flaws but he ignore all of them. This
is the only way he can keep hiding in his fantasy world.
As I mentioned, he has serious paranoid personality disorder. In the
movie, Martin Scorsese used some uncommon phenomenon to imply the
existence of his hallucination:
1: when he first arrived the hospital, everything seems horrible and
hostile. All patients were working with handcuffs and fetters. At the
end of movie, we can see the reality view of hospital is warm and
2: His wife, a dead woman, appears everywhere.
3: When they interrogate Mrs. Carnes, she wrote “RUN” on his note book
but actually she did not. The clue is Mrs. Carnes change her emotion,
became scared suddenly. And she pretended to drink water but there was
no cup in her hand.
4: Andrew had an important conversation with George in C ward. George’s
emotion changed without any sign like Mrs. Carnes, and told Andrew about
the brain washing surgery in lighthouse.
5: Andrew found a cigarette end on cliff, so that he found Chuck’s body
at bottom. This part is proved is his illusion because he noticed there
is no body after he went down the cliff. And there was a clue implies
audiences: the wind on cliff blow his hair to the right but the smoke
from the cigarette end was to the other side. And then he found a large
number of rats come out from the cave. There should not have any rat in
ocean. It is imply that the meeting and conversation he had with
“doctor” in cave is his imagine.
He is “man to violence” or a “violence man”. He loved to choose violence
way to express himself. He had hurt most of people in this hospital. The
people he beat include patients, security guards, policemen, nurses,
care workers, his friend George, and even Dr. Sheehan at the end. And
because of his antisocial behaviors, this is the last chance they will
treat him as a patient. If role-paly treatment failed, then they will do
