PLACEBO WORDZ HOME
Retour à l'accueil
Could studying the placebo effect change the way we think about Some people clearly respond better to placebos than others, though we.
The truth is you’ll never reach the standard of my imagination.
We are never in love, it’s all just a matter of fascination.
It’s all for boredom, a feeling of importance, perhaps a feeding of egos.
We are all imagining the feelings, high on placebos.
Love in this modern day really does not exist.
All that there is are moments of high and moments of bliss.
Then comes the addiction; the need to feel a sensation of want and need.
We want to be desired, so to each other we concede.
This wears off, every infatuation comes with an expiry date.
We plan our lives, each feeling, each destination and it’s never a matter of fate.
We invest in people, we build them up only to destroy them in the end.
All in the name of bad habits that we call best friends.
They say you love the people you are able to see your own self in.
Narcissists are what we truly are within.
We build our own fabrications,
That lead to our own disappointments.
So this is to the next boy who decides to come knocking at my door step:
You’ll never reach the standards of my expectations.
I want the impossible, a love of immortality, without expiration, a heart without complication.
I want a man who knows himself before he knows who I am.
I want a man with goals, aspirations and a plan.
I want a man who can see himself without me,
But with me is where he’d prefer to be.
I want a man who can stand up for his own opinion.
I want a man who is desired by other woman.
I want a man who spins me around in front of them.
I want a lover who is also a friend.
I don’t want a best friend that turns into a bad habit.
I want us to look at relationship goals and say we have it.
So if you have come knocking I suggest you turn back and head on home.
This girl has built her walls high and they’re made of stone.
See, it’s never an issue of knocking them down for it is not a matter of strength.
Would you climb this wall with the risk of falling, would you go to that length?
You think so now, but we are humans of the 21st century.
Love is not a need it is an accessory.
So here’s to honesty, to the reality of placebos.
All I did was tell you what you already knew though.
How long will we all pretend that we care about anyone other than ourselves?
Close that fictional chapter, leave it to collect dust on the shelves.
Geoffrey Chaucer wrote The Canterbury Tales in the late 14th Century, featuring several tales loosely linked together that revolve around typical medieval lifestyles with its many modern day parallels. Marriage was a popular theme for debate during this time, with particular concerns to reasons for and consequences of marriage. Chaucer presents a variation of views, initially through the Merchant’s Prologue where the Merchant forcefully stresses his perspective that passionately opposes marriage. Chaucer structures the Prologue in the form of a confessional complaint which parallels Justinus’ anecdotal account of his experience of marriage. The powerful opening of the Merchant’s Prologue is intended by Chaucer to echo the prior epilogue of the Clerk’s Tale that concludes with the comment “and let him care, and wepe and wringe and waille”, followed by the Merchant’s miserable descriptions of marriage having him “wepyng and waylyng”. The repeated use of the word “wepe” emphasizes their mutual distaste for married life. As the tale progresses, the Merchant’s bitter tone converts and becomes extremely more accepting of marriage in light of Januarie’s upcoming decision to be “wedded hastily”, which suggests his rash and unthoughtful consideration for the true value of marriage.
Chaucer makes evident Januarie’s main reason for marriage being to live a spiritual, sanctified life that will enable him a place in heaven, but implicitly contrasts this throughout, for instance; the specifications Januarie makes for his wife are intended to fulfill his sexual desires. January’s glamorization of a younger wife implicitly presents the view that perfection and happiness in marriage is not possible with an elder woman, which links to ideas portrayed in the Clerk’s Tale through Grisilida who is depicted as a young and beautiful wife who remains subservient, somehow due to her youthfulness. The impression is made onto the reader that Januarie is self-delusional since he is old himself, and he may also come across as judgmental and offensive. It can be interpreted that his intentions are solely for himself. This contradicts the traditional religious conditions of marriage as being beneficial for both husband and wife. Marriage was deemed a unison, and a reflection, of the love of Christ for his people. However, many medieval readers would relate to Januarie’s ambitions in marriage, considering the conventional attitudes to the nature of marriage were regarded as a mercantile transaction and the consolidation of title, so marriage was rarely undertaken for love. This significantly contrasts the views of a modern reader, who would be more inclined to disagree with Januarie’s real purpose for marriage. It seems pointless, however, that Januarie enters into a debate with his brothers as it seems like he has already made his decision, and he absorbs himself in Placebo’s flattery.
Placebo’s sycophantic nature imposes his belief that Januarie need not acquire advice from anyone, and believes Januarie should ignore “the word of Salomon” who says it is best to act upon advice that one has sought. University philosophers in the Middle Ages favoured dialectic, yet Placebo’s use of exegesis does not give forth a productive and informed argument – it seems to only allow for Januarie to collude in his fantasies further without even considering an alternative, in the way that Justinus does. Chaucer’s depiction of Placebo lends the tale verisimilitude as Placebo is demonstrated as a typical pleasing courtier, therefore rather than debating against Januarie’s unrealistic expectations of marriage for the purpose of Januarie’s own good, Placebo entertains his imaginations. It can be interpreted that Januarie does not want to be damned of his right to have a youthful, obedient wife who will satisfy his needs, since the wife, when married, had the same legal status as her husband’s domestic animals. Conventional attitudes to the institution of marriage were very similar to Januarie’s, which Chaucer implements purposefully to represent an actuality.
Justinus’ view aids towards a nature of debate more than Placebo since his views are opposing, as he suggests that Januarie must “be pacient” since marriage is “no childes play / to take a wyf withouten avisement”. He says choosing a wife involves that “men moost enquere”. Making reference to the Christian vows, Justinus highlights the permanent nature of marriage – which Placebo fails to mention, which is ironic since he is so experienced in his courtly life. The sacrament of marriage involves the exchange of vows of care and fidelity, sanctifying the partnership in the eyes of God. Where those vows are kept, as they eventually are in The Franklin’s Tale, the marriage may be said to be good, despite the inequality of the partners. The bitter narration in the Merchant’s Tale, by the Merchant, however, draws no distinction between good and bad marriage and belittles the sacrament itself; initial images of married life in the Prologue, being a form of “cursedness”, is juxtaposed with the Merchant’s view in the Tale, describing Januarie’s desire for “marriage hony-sweete”.
In conclusion, Chaucer’s use of personification allegory with Placebo and Justinus express the conflicting views of marriage, represented by the definition of their names – Placebo meaning “I shall please”, symbolizing pretense, and Justinus, “the just one” symbolising justice and honesty. Chaucer implies that his brothers are types rather than individually realized characters in order to detach any emotion from the attempted debate displayed between the two. It can be interpreted that this emotional detachment is a reflection of Januarie’s real sense of lack of emotion for his wife, also conveyed through the objectification of woman in his use of his wax imagery (“a yong thing may men gye/ right as men may warm wex with handes plye”) and through use of his animal imagery (making a preference to “a pyk than a pickerel”) This approach to marriage was common amongst contemporary audiences; the idea of an elder man marrying a girl as young as twelve was traditional and more accepted than those of the modern audience. However, enjoyment of sex, even between married couples, was deemed a mortal sin as the only purpose of sex was believed to be for procreation and to avoid lechery, so Januarie’s early desire for marriage as an entrance to heaven may be prevented with Placebo’s encouraging words and lack of debate against the reality of Januarie’s future.
The big bulk of the response to antidepressants is the placebo response.

In the book, Eddie is described as the shortest of the group, has a thin, delicate-looking face, grayish blue eyes and briefly mentioned to have a flattop haircut when Mr. Keene tells him his asthma medication, HydrOx, is a placebo. In the mini-series and film adaption, Eddie is still the shortest of the group but has a more average-looking appearance.
Later on, when Eddie is older in the novel, he is mentioned to bear a resemblance to Anthony Perkins.
Eddie is a part of the losers club, he is best friends with Bill Denbrough, Stanley Uris, Mike Hanlon, Ben Hanscom, Beverly Marsh, and Richie Tozier. He idolizes Bill as the leader and attempts to follow his image when in difficult situations.
As a child, Eddie was regarded as a fragile individual who was a hypochondriac, scared of the world and avoiding most situations in fear of getting sick or injured. However, he later proves that he is one of the strongest of the Losers when he is able to stand up to his overbearing mother and even save the Losers in the sewer.
His father died from cancer in 1951, when Eddie was five years old. Eddie developed serious bronchitis shortly after. As a result of this, Eddie's mother, Sonia, is extremely overprotective of her son. She does not allow him to do many things that the other children do and always makes sure that he is safe and well-protected. She is convinced Eddie is fragile and berates their doctors into giving him placebos, unknown to him, believing "it was better for a child [...] to think he was sick than to really get sick."
Before the Losers' Club had formed, Eddie had been friends with Bill. On the day that Ben was attacked by Henry Bowers and the other bullies, Eddie and Bill had been attempting to build a dam in the Barrens. After Ben escapes from the bullies, they come to Bill and Eddie to ask if they had seen where Ben had run to. When they answer that they had not, Henry punches Eddie in the nose, causing it to bleed profusely and triggers an asthma attack. However, Eddie's aspirator was empty and as Eddie's breathing continues to struggle, Bill is concerned for Eddie and asks Ben to watch over Eddie as he goes to the pharmacy to get his medication. After Bill comes back and Eddie's breathing is restored to normal, Ben explains how they could build a better dam. They all become friends, and this group of three is the precursor to the Losers' Club before the other members join.
One day, Eddie goes to watch the trains pass in the train yard as well as possibly listen to the singers at the Gospel Church nearby. On this day, however, he passes the house at 29 Neibolt Street and feels as though he cannot tear himself away from it. The house is incredibly run down, old and bears evidence that many hobos and prostitutes had used it as shelter while passing through Derry. Eddie feels drawn to the house and begins to approach it, when suddenly what appears to be a hobo rises from beneath the porch of the house. Eddie believes the hobo has leprosy (but is later corrected by Richie and Bill who tell him he instead had Syphilis) as his skin is severely diseased and his nose appears to have fallen off. The leper begins to chase Eddie, screaming that he would blow Eddie for a nickel, then a dime, and then even for free. Eddie barely manages to escape as the leper begins to run after Eddie's bike. Later, Eddie is compelled to revisit the house and crawl under the porch, where he finds evidence of hobos having stayed there (beer cans, liquor bottles, a blanket, and an old shoe). As he peers into a cellar window, It appears in a form resembling the leper, terrifying him and chasing him from underneath the porch. Eddie tells Richie and Bill about what he saw, and later Richie and Bill decide to revisit the house once more to see if they are able to find It.
It uses the leper to take advantage of Eddie's fear of disease. When seeing the leper, Eddie felt that if it had touched him he would instantly catch every disease that it had and rot from the inside out. This being contains every disease, illness, and infection that Eddie could think of, and threatens to make him sick just the same.
While walking home one day from Mr Keene's Pharmacy, Eddie is attacked by Henry Bowers, Vic Criss, Patrick Hockstetter, and Moose Sadler in the park as payback for humiliating them during the Apocalyptic Rock Fight. They push Eddie to the ground near the park benches. Henry starts yelling at Eddie and twisting his arm behind his back. He eventually jerks Eddie's arm up high enough to break it. When Sonia Kaspbrak finds out, she freaks out and believes that the Losers are at fault. She forbids Eddie from seeing them again. However, Eddie is finally able to stand up to her and tell her that she cannot forbid him from seeing them. She, yet again, attempts to manipulate Eddie with her tears and tells him that he is a bad son, but he does not listen and is able to continue to see his friends and go with them into the sewers to fight It.
In the 2017 adaptation of IT, Eddie breaks his arm when he sees IT in the form of a leper when he returns to 29 Neibolt and enters the house with Bill and Richie. His motive for standing up to his mother is also changed, accepting the truth that his medication was, in fact, a placebo and that she had been lying to him all these years for her own selfish reasons, as well as making him turn away from his friends at his deepest time of need for them.
As an adult, Eddie owns an extremely successful limousine company and has the job of driving many celebrities around New York. He has become very wealthy through this. He is unhappily married to a woman named Myra who he realizes is very, very, similar to his mother in personality and looks. They share a love of singer Barry Manilow, and they own all of his albums.
When It had returned, he, along with the other Losers, reluctantly return to Derry to fight and kill It once and for all.
While in the sewers fighting It for the second and last time, Bill misses his hold on the creature's tongue so Richie goes in after him. However, It fights back, and she manages to loosen Richie's hold. Upon hearing Richie's cry for help, Eddie leaps into action, triggering his aspirator into one of It's many eyes. He then proceeds to douse the alien with his medicine while his arm slowly begins sliding further and further into It's open mouth. After triggering his medicine down It's throat a few times, It bites Eddie's arm off. With his few remaining seconds, he tells Richie to stop calling him Eds, before dying. The Losers later leave Eddie’s body in the sewers, despite Richie's protests saying they should take his body back with them. Richie didn't like the fact that Eddie was being left in the sewer, knowing Eddie wouldn't like it; he kissed Eddie's cheek before leaving. Eddie's death seemingly impacted Richie the most. In the miniseries, it is later stated that Richie's latest co-star looks and acts like Eddie.
Eddie, motivated by Richie being caught in IT's Deadlights, takes the spear given to him by Beverly and strikes a serious blow to IT. Thinking he has maybe even killed IT, and overjoyed by Richie's safety, he turns his back on it to check on him. During this time, IT impales him through the chest with one of its legs. The Losers manage to get him away, and he finds the time to tell them how he hurt the leper by making it small, giving them the inspiration they needed to defeat IT. He takes the time to recall jokes made with Richie in the clubhouse as children, telling him "I fucked your mom". The other losers find a way around back to the entrance to make IT small while Richie stays with a dying Eddie. By the next time we see them Eddie is clearly dead, while Richie still holds on to him in denial. The rest of the gang do not see him again until defeating IT, where Bev has to tell Richie he is dead, and point out that there is no way to get him out with them. Heartbroken, Richie reluctantly leaves him, and his lifeless body stays in IT's lair as it falls apart.
