Folie à Deux
Mikey was looking out the window, at the falling rain drops hitting against the window.
"What is wrong little brother?" Gerard asked seeing him like this. Mikey turned around.
"I just feel really down. I don't know why." Mikey replied.
"Is it because of the rain? Or the touring?" Gerard was concerned about his brother. Gerard loved
Mikey and hated seeing him all depressed.
"I think it might be the combination of both." Lately Mikey had been depressed and it was becoming a
"Is there anything I could do for you?" Gerard was starting to feel depressed for him.
"Can I tell you something?" Mikey asked. He knew nobody else was around, and that if he didn't want
Gerard to tell anything, he wouldn't tell.
"Yes, tell me." Knowing something horrible is better than knowing nothing.
"I see things. I hear things. Most days I don't feel like myself anymore. I fear that I am loosing
my mind. Like when I look at that picture I see things coming out of it and attacking me. I feel
like my mind is cracking into two." Mikey explained to him.
"Mikey, that doesn't sound good. You're not taking any drugs or anything are you?" Gerard was
seriously worried about him.
"No Gee, I'm not taking drugs. I just don't know what's going on."
"Well as soon as we can see a doctor, I am taking you."
"Please, no. I'll be fine seriously. I'll cheer up and then everything will be better." Mikey
pleaded. He didn't want some doc to put him in the crazy hospital and his brother not be able to see
him. It would be awesome.
"Well, Mikey I'm watching you for now." Gerard said. He then turned his attention to the passing
Weeks passed by, and Gerard didn't notice anything in Mikey's condition. In fact he started seeing
things Mikey explained. He saw what Mikey saw and felt what Mikey felt. He was beginning to become
fearful of his surroundings, not depressed. He saw things that never existed, except to him and
He realized what was happening after a show.
There was a kid running up to him and Mikey. "Mr. Gerard, Mr. Mikey, can I have your autograph?" The
girl called out. She handed Gerard a CD case to sign with a sharpie, and then gave it to Mikey.
Ray, Bob, and Frank were walking behind Gerard and Mikey. "Can I have your autographs too?" Gerard
and Mikey were stopped to wait for one of them to take the girl's Cd case and sign it. But they
didn't pay attention to her.
"Why are you guy stopped?" Bob asked.
"Don't you see the girl in front of you wanting the autograph?" Mikey responded.
"What girl? There is no girl." Ray pointed out.
"The one in front of you holding the fucking case!" Gerard screamed. He was becoming furious at the
guys for being rude to her. But before he realized it, the girl had turned around and had a knife in
her hand. Gerard and Mikey both saw this, and started backing up, with fearful eyes.
"What is wrong with you two?" Frank asked moving forward. He was getting closer to them, and was
soon enough passing through the girl, making the illusion disappear.
"I don't know, Frank. But I think me and Gerard are seeing things."
"Folie a deux," Pete said into the phone right after Frank had described their symptoms. "I only
know because of the title of the CD we're releasing,we had found that out."
"What should we do about it?" Frank asked.
"On that I have no idea. I guess you should take them to the hospital. They would know what to do."
Pete answered in response.
Reluctantly, Ray, Bob and Frank took Mikey and Gerard to the hospital. They were committed to the
psychiatric ward for evaluation. Ray, Bob, and Frank were all told to leave. But scince they were in
the middle of almost no where, they weren't going to travel anytime soon.
"They need some time away from each other until the hilucinations dissapear." The nurse had told
them." Until Mikey and Gerard got better, they weren't going to leave the town or anything. They
cancled the tour.
Mikey and Gerard were placed in separate rooms. They had different wings of the Psyriactic ward, to
keep them separated. And they were never allowed to be out of their rooms, until the three day
evaluation was over.
They were deemed not right for the public but would be able to make a recovery. But it would take
time and rehab for their minds to get over these hallucinations.
Night after night they were both visited by the little girl. She had no intention on killing them.
But it made them paranoid. Both would scream in the middle of the night at the girl, the figment of
their imagination that seemed so real and life like.
Each night the nurse would have to come in and calm them down. But each night the girl seemed to
visit less and less until she just seemed to dissapear. She would show up some nights and not
others, but eventually she disappeared.
Before they could be released they had to start to see each other again. In small amounts they would
spend their days together.
"Did she come to you last night?" Mikey asked the first time of seeing Gerard.
"Not last night, but the night before she did."
"She hasn't appear for a while."
Gerard sat on the park bench that the hospital had outside for the patients to get fresh air. Mikey
followed. They talked about how the girl showed up less and less.
They had to go through a few weeks of the sessions of seeing each other, until they were released
from the hospital.
Bob, Ray, and Frank were grateful that they had their old Mikey and Gerard back that they went home
so they could relax even more. The doctors said that it was probably from too much touring that they
started to see these things. And because they were close brothers going through the same thing, that
they should stay home after their release for a little while before touring.
Bob Ray and Frank took it very seriously, and Gerard and Mikey got time off of the tour.
A/N: I was wiki-ing Fob's new Cd when I saw the meaning of it. ""Folie ? Deux", is a French term
which translates to "the shared madness of two," referring to the psychotic disorder." So it made me
look deeper into the subject. And I found out about it. Then I felt like people should understand
that its not just a title but a real problem. If you want to learn more about this:
