A colleague that I worked with used to be a big fan of Soap Operas and involved in that fandom.
A friend of mine played a long-running character in a famous Australian soap opera. Her character was once made to have a miscarriage - and she was constantly being delayed in shops by sobbing women commiserating on her terrible loss.
Its so odd. How does one get to the point where they are so emotionally invested in fiction that they lose the ability to distinguish the difference between it and reality?

Its one thing to have fun with it and enjoy it for what it is. Its quite another to invest the same emotional energy in a fictional character as one would a real person.

What kind of person does that and is it yet another sign that we need to make psycho therapy more readily available?
