Schizophrenia

Hello!

Suffering from a toothache is a disease that must be cured and treated, but we cannot “discriminate” against those who suffer from this toothache, or let alone them from society due to a disease that is often natural, and we do not create it ourselves.

Some of us “pull” someone with illness, be it a family member/ partner/ or know of an acquaintance/ friend/neighbors. This load is not easy and even more when is illness is mental, and many times it ends up depressing us without energy and wanting to leave our bundle in the middle of the track of our lives…
Today, as always, I want to share information that may help some and how to balance this mental problem for others.

Schizophrenia is a severe long-term mental health condition. It causes a range of different psychological symptoms. Doctors often describe schizophrenia as a type of psychosis. This means the person may not always be able to distinguish their own thoughts and ideas from reality. Usually involves delusions (false beliefs), hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that don’t exist), unusual physical behavior, and disorganized thinking and speech. It is common for people with schizophrenia to have paranoid thoughts or hear voices.

What does schizophrenia do to a person?
Is a chronic brain disorder that affects less than one percent of the U.S. population. When schizophrenia is active, symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, trouble with thinking and lack of motivation.

Symptoms:
-Delusions. These are false beliefs that are not based in reality
-Hallucinations. These usually involve seeing or hearing things that don’t exist
-Disorganized thinking (speech). Disorganized thinking is inferred from disorganized speech
-Extremely disorganized or abnormal motor behavior
-Negative symptoms

Can a schizophrenic live a normal life?
Treatment includes medication, therapy, social and family support, and the use of social services. Treatment must be ongoing, as this is a chronic illness without a cure. When schizophrenia is treated and managed over the long-term, most people can live normal, productive, and fulfilling lives.

Should schizophrenic live alone?
Many people with schizophrenia are able to live independently. However, this is not the case for all people with schizophrenia. There are several things that people with schizophrenia should know to overcome the difficulties of their illness and live on their own: Early diagnosis and treatment leads to better outcomes.

How do you calm a schizophrenic?
-Remember that you cannot reason with acute psychosis
-The person may be terrified by their own feelings of loss of control
-Don’t express irritation
