When I feel a panic coming on,

I'm supposed to list off

words in my head

associated with my surroundings.

This technique helps ground me

in the world I live in

so I don't disappear

into my head.



What happened to us?


I would like a room, please.

It's 50.

I'm the apostle of affliction.

Open up.

What the hell's going on

in there?

Are you okay?


Was I sleeping?


I mean,

I thought maybe you were dead.

Oh, no, no, no, not yet.

Why don't you tell me

what your goal is

for this work?

I don't wanna take medication

and I don't wanna talk to you.

Well, what were you feeling

last night?

Were you having...

racing thoughts

or suicidal thoughts?

Are you gonna try and tell me

something about my mind

or the way it works?

Here's a pill. Feel better.


I think you may be bipolar.


Is it great? Is it "great"?

Well, what am I supposed to say?

I don't know. You could

say anything. You could say:

"That sucks."

"That sucks."

That sucks.


How about that?

- I have four children.

- Mm.

Two of them, Lily and Max,

have mental illnesses.

Madeline is fine.

And my other daughter...

She's also very pretty.



Oh, she is, yes.


She's red and just...

But any... I came here really...

What I'm very concerned about

right now is Max.


Oh. He's a very bright boy,

am I right?


Heh, heh.

Is he, uh...?

Is he incarcerated?

Like in jail? No.

Um, he's bipolar.

That's it.

And I haven't heard from him

in a while now and that's not...

Yeah, it will be okay.



He's fine.

I can see it.

Oh, my God, I could cry.

I was so scared

about coming here.

Oh, everyone is the first time.

Heh. But you're here.

That's the important part.

I keep my thoughts

to myself, I think so much

that I need to run

to keep them quiet.

I don't need a doctor

to inform me of how I feel.

I'm the center of the universe.

I can feel

the world around me changing.

Everything is real.


Nothing is what it seems.

My name is Lily Green

and I am on a path...

Are you okay?

I'm fine. It's nothing.

You sure?


You scraped your hands.

I got a first aid kit...

I'm fine.

It'd just take a minute.

I could clear it up.

No, thanks.

Two minutes...

I said no! Okay? Jesus.

I'm 17, you pervert.

I was trying to help you.

I don't need your help.


I was 16,

and there was this bridge.

It was, like, where all

of the local kids would go

and get drunk and smoke pot.

And, um...

That's where I lost

my virginity.

What's your relationship

like with your family?

It's... It's good.

Yeah, it's, you know....

I would prefer not to talk

about personal things

because I have a hard time

with that.

You don't get along

with your family?

Elisa and my

mom hate each other.

One night, Elisa had a meltdown

and began yelling at my mom

about time travel.


My mother told her

she was mentally ill.

Listen, just open the door.

F*ck, open the door

so I can say I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.


Open the f*cking door.

In the lives

That we planned

What the f*ck.

Until it's time

For you to go


Yes, we're different

Worlds apart

Who are you?

I'm Frank.

I'm Elisa.




What I feel has come

And gone before

No need to talk it out

We know what

It's all about

Hangin' around

Nothin' to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays

Always get

Me down

Oh, ho-ho-ho, good.

Do you like being watched?


What are you doing here?

Well, I'm stalking you.
