Sort of similar, actually, except it was early-onset schizophrenia, with him initially struggling against it and eventually giving in and embracing his delusions and hallucinations.  Stefan seems to be convinced that magic is always an allegory for insanity.  Given the kind of life he had before he turned eleven, Harry should have PTSD at the least, or probably more likely, DID.

But I don't think it's unrelated. Even if it's not what J.K. Rowling intended, it would make sense that she would set the character up like that to be able to go on those kind of adventures. He'd have the fulfillment in reality that the delusions would give a mental patient.

Apparently, there are entities in the Upside-Down who are taking resources when the gate is open.

Not intelligent ones, at least so far. They're just beasts. One of the characters described it like a virus, hijacking Will's intelligence because it had none of its own.

Quote
Remember, this is one of Stefan's analyses, so he's probably completely rewritten the story to conform to his own narrative.  Do you know what he decided Harry Potter was about?

I shudder to think...what?

(I've heard the idea that Harry is actually in a sanitorium suffering from PTSD, and how the story and his place in it matches the kind of delusions you'd expect. It was scarily convincing...)

This Week's Quote: "Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn’t let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians." —L. Neil Smith

I recall CBS News (in 60 Minutes), back in the 90's during another wave of anti-opiate hysteria which had led to a campaign by the DEA to restrict opiate prescriptions and prosecute doctors who kept prescribing high-dose opiates for severe chronic pain doing a piece on how the loss of such pain management was driving people to suicide, including specific people who had.

It'd be awesome if you could find that episode!

Wait, "lit" is supposed to be for blacks only? What about people who've been calling the class "English Lit" all these decades?
