It's a losing fight, going up against the myths pop culture perpetuates. But, dammit, someone has to do it. Because left unchecked, people go around spewing every dumb thing they learn from movies and shows that are really just using mental illnesses to advance a plot and make a buck, instead of teach us anything useful.

So, dig in, because it's time drop a knowledge bomb on your ass.
