A very interesting debate took place in Controversy at the Bar (America, Monday to Friday at 7 p.m.) regarding the topic of the day: the psychotic outbreak of Chano Charpentier. Especially when Matías Alé gave his testimony and compared his situation with that of the singer.
Mariano Iúdica was the first to refer to the singer’s situation. “It reaches me in a very strong place because I love Chano and I have told him so for many years. He seems to me a beautiful person, with incredible talent and I can’t believe in the place he is and the darkness he goes through. It hurts me a lot to see that I can’t get out of this. “
Chiche Gelblung added that “I feel that we are all a little guilty of this because when Chano is a little well we handle it and we put it in a place it doesn’t have to be. We have to be very careful with that. The journalistic system helps Chano lose his position. It hardly improves a bit, we upload it like nothing. “

Then Matías Alé asked to speak, who went through a similar situation at the end of 2015 when he had a psychotic break with mystical delirium. “I want to refute a little what Chiche just said. In my particular case, the media, the press and my colleagues helped me to get out of my illness“, he expressed.
“I don’t think it’s your fault. You helped me. I could not have alone“The actor acknowledged, although they pointed out that the difference between his case and that of the singer is drug use.
After seeing a report that showed different situations that Chano went through throughout his career, they went back to the floor and they continued with the debate.
“I want to clarify that in my case my psychotic break was not due to any addiction. I like to make it clear. I got to hallucinate and saw those who came to help me as being bad beings, “explained Matías.
“I had to be caught between eight. Because also the strength you develop at that moment, when they are in the middle of an outbreak, is not the usual one. I felt the incredible Hulk“, it manifested.
The psychiatrist Ricardo Corral spoke with Matías Alé about the reasons for a psychotic outbreak. Capture TV
“What Chano is going through is very serious, but it is very difficult to explain it to people who have not gone through this. Because You cannot understand that the police come to help you, you see her as if she were the devil“he added.
“You are aware of what is happening all the time. I never lost consciousness and I remember exactly everything I did“Alé described. Then, the psychiatrist Ricardo Corral MN 67653 who works at Hospita Borda and was invited to the program, told him that” Surely you had a loss of judgment of reality. You remember everything but you distorted what was fantasy reality“.
“It’s like you come in PAL N system and suddenly your head is switched (sic) and you go to NTC system like in the VHS cassette era. I was aware when they took me to the Finochietto to see if mine was drugs. I remember the faces of the policemen. I was trying to get out of that state and I couldn’t“, he recounted.
Later Gastón Recondo maintained a controversial theory: “My family experience taught me that the addict is never cured. Rather, it is a day to day recovery. Because when they tell him that he is cured, he has the risk of falling again “, something with which Matías Alé did not agree.
“I want to tell Gastón that I was admitted to the Avril clinic with many addicts that I saw them leave and they did not return later. They continued with their treatment but they did not fall “, assured the ex of Graciela Alfano.
In search of answers
“Even today I keep wondering what happened to me. And I want to ask the doctor if it is true that 90% of all of us are prone to this happening to us and that we depend only on one touch, “he inquired. To which the psychiatrist replied that it was not.
“There is a genetic predisposition that is not well known where it comes from. And there are other social or family factors that can influence. Not everyone gets into a psychotic break“, clarified the professional.
“There are warnings that something like this is going to happen. Sometimes the family does not want to admit you and you have to be admitted as well. It is necessary to make it clear that the Avril clinic It is not a madman that the inmates are going to hit their heads against the rubber walls“added Matías, trying to describe what a hospital is like.

“I was hospitalized twice. Seventy days in total and those places are not as bad as they are painted”, He later clarified to Chiche Gelblung, that he defined asylums as very dark and mostly deteriorated centers. “It is not a vacation colony or a social club. But it is a place where you feel contained by the doctors and your colleagues,” assured Alé.
Later Matías broke down when comparing his situation with that of the singer. “When I saw what happened to Chano, it gave me a lot of anguish to know that I was about to finish like this. Because I remember the police who came looking for me while I was defending my ex-wife, believing that she was the Virgin Mary and the police wanted to attack her. ”
“There you lose the sense of strength and time. They say that since Friday Chano was like this. At that time you don’t eat, you don’t drink and you become a super hero. Luckily it wasn’t given to me by something violent. But equal I resisted the police and there were like eight who tried to stop me“he recalled.
In addition, Matías explained that “The paranoia that You feel is that the whole world is plotting against you. And you think that everyone wants to hurt you and they even communicate by handy as if it were the montage of a scene from a movie in which they want to attack you “.
When it was discussed on the program whether the psychiatric outbreak could be prevented, a differentiation was made between the patient who uses drugs and the one who does not. “I spent one morning being Matías Alé to transform myself into the Holy Spirit. It went from one minute to the next. “
“I was going to work at an event in Punta Carrasco, where I had to do the driving. I was a bit sped up and without sleeping or eating, because he came from another event the night before, “he said.
“The work of those who are outside is fundamental for the people who are inside. I was inside and ten hours a day they talked in the media about what was happening to me and that influences. At the Avril clinic they did not let me see anything, so that I would not have contact with that reality until I was healed, “he advised his colleagues.
“I’m not okay with this Chano thing. When I found out, I removed things. Poor thing, I feel like I am, but now I’m on the other side. I could have ended up with a shot like him. There were eight policemen with whom I faced. And even if you don’t want to, you remove all that, “he remarked.
The importance of medication
“Many times you fight with the medication because it makes you fat, it slows you down, you don’t have lucidity. But you don’t have to fight with the medication that is what helps you. You think that the culprit of your day-to-day condition It’s the medication. So you look bad, without coordination, your fine motor skills don’t work and you say I don’t take anything else“he mused.
In “Polémica en el Bar” they dealt with the issue of Chano’s health and Matías Alé gave his testimony. Capture TV
“I had a relapse because of that. In November 2015 I got my first breakout. I was admitted and left on December 15 of that year. I was perfect for a few months until June of the following year, when I stopped taking the medication, because I had struggled with it. “
“I’m not going to apologize for madness, but when you’re on the other side, it’s great what it feels like. At least in my case, I I felt like I had a direct wifi channel with God. And that day to day it was terrific and I didn’t want to be fired from it. That is why I did not want the medication, although later you understand that it is the only thing that keeps you healthy. ”
“Mental health should not be stigmatized. It is frowned upon. Mental illness gets a bad press, but people can get out. I am here today and I feel good. It makes me good to talk about this, “Matías closed.
