By now most of us know about Michael Jackson’s health problems but what about his mental health? Who was this “little boy” inside a man’s body? What was this “Peter Pan Syndrome” or was it Asperger?
In the early 1980s Steven Spielberg considered directing Peter Pan as a musical with Michael Jackson in the lead.
Let’s go back to 1987, Sir Trevor Robert Nunn an English theatre and film director who was responsible for Cats (1981), formerly the longest running musical in Broadway’s history, and the first English production of Les Misérables in 1985 had to say about Michael Jackson. (Click Here)
By 1988, Neverland Ranch was Michael’s home.
Peter Pan Syndrome or “Puer aeternus?”
Puer aeternus is Latin for eternal boy, used in mythology to designate a child-god who is forever young; psychologically it refers to an older man whose emotional life has remained at an adolescent level, usually coupled with too great a dependence on the mother. We all know how Michael loved his mother!
That definitely describes Michael. He really was just a gentle, misunderstood and fragile person we wouldn’t leave alone. In a 2003 interview, Jackson told interviewer Martin Bashir, “I am Peter Pan”. Bashir said, “No, you’re Michael Jackson”, Jackson replied, “I’m Peter Pan in my heart”.
How the Peter Pan Syndrome Affects Men’s Lives
Males diagnosed with this syndrome:
Have difficulty expressing love
Feel guilt and have difficulty in relaxing
Have no real connection with friends. Believes friends can only be bought
Easily panic and feel desperately alone in their attempts to belong
Michael said, “People think they know me but they don’t. Not really. Actually, I am one of the loneliest people on this earth. I cry sometimes, because it hurts. It does. To be honest, I guess you could say that it hurts to be me.”
Some mental health experts said Michael had the mind of a regressed ten-year-old. This had some people believing he had Asperger Syndrome. Many professionals felt Asperger is simply a milder form of autism and used the term “high-functioning autism” to describe these individuals. In 2003, one doctor believed Michael’s unusual expertise and hindering social difficulties was due to Autism. (Notice how they misspell Asperger. Asberger) (Click Here)
Conrad Murray first met Michael Jackson in 2006, when Murray treated one of Jackson’s children in Las Vegas. Was he Michael’s new “Doctor Feel Good?”
Now we have people who are not really helping and understanding Michael, but feeding him drugs to make him “happy.” He was in pain, could not relax or sleep and felt that he had to “buy” his friends.
Now let’s get back to the conspiracy. Let’s say some one was out to kill Michael Jackson. Let’s set the stage.
Before some one goes on tour, for insurance reasons, the performer has to have a medical exam. I am wondering how Michael passed the exam with his pass medical history and why concert promoter AEG, hired Conrad Murray, a cardiologist, to be Michael’s personal physician. Murray was not on the top of the list of doctors that they could have hired, but he was in need of money, not the best doctor in the world and he was black. We cannot have a white doctor kill Michael. There would be hell on Earth.
What was Murray doing while Michael Jackson was at his last rehearsal at the Staples Center on Wednesday, the eve of his death? Murray was at a topless strip club called Sam’s Hofbrau having a drink or two and who knows what else! Remember his “girlfriend” just had a baby.

Murray claims that while he was in the bathroom, Michael took the 20 ml bottle of Propofol and self-injected the remaining contents through the IV, causing a massive overdose that stopped his heart. He wants us to believe that but look at page 17 of the autopsy report. (Click Here) It said that there is no way Michael could have killed himself!

There are questions about if the CPR was preformed correctly. Did you know that this was the first time the doctor preformed a CPR? (Click Here)
So what do we have here? Michael Jackson was an older man whose emotional life did remained at an adolescent level. Maybe he did have Asperger. He believed that there was a conspiracy against him. We know his was not in the best of health, but passed a medical exam so he could go on tour. A cardiologist was hire to take care of Michael. This doctor was not the best money could buy and never did CPR before. Now Michael is dead. Does this add up to you?
