A chronic, severe and disabling brain disorder where a person interprets reality abnormally. It is characterised by delusions, hallucinations, disordered thinking and behaviours. It’s not known what causes schizophrenia, but it’s believed that genetics and environment contribute to the development of the disease.
I think people with Schizophrenia must be surrounded with people they love because they weren't have this disorder from the begining if it weren't because of the absence of those people in their lives.
I think people with Schizophrenia disorder must be surrounded with people they love so that they can heal fast because they wouldn't have this disorder from the beginning if it weren't because of the abcense of people they love.
The husband of mom's cousin suffers from this. It seriously is insane, quite horrible for both him and his family. Last time he wanted to get cigarettes, when the shop was closed, and for whatever reason he believed it was open, so when he couldn't open the door, he smashed the door with his car...
This type of illness offends me when the symptoms that are associated with this illness don't even pertain to me. However, when a doctor doesn't give you the time of day to correctly evaluate you, this is what happens. I am sure there is a connection between adhd, bipolar, and depression. I am sure there are plenty of people out there misdiagnosed.
Having schizophrenia seems like you're always on LSD. It would be scary to not be able to control hallucinations and, not know what's real and, what's fake.
Schizophrenia is such a frightening illness. My grandmother has it and she really is traumatized with upsetting thoughts and delusions. I hope that anyone with this illness is able to find the help they need
If someone in your life or someone you work with has schizophrenia I HIGHLY recommend the workshop Hearing Voices. It allows you to experience schizophrenia for a short period of time and gives you such a better understanding.
I have an aunt that was diagnosed as a Schizo when she was 18 after experimenting with drugs. She was institutionalized and had to have electro shock therapy. She is doing better now and I see her once a year. She calls her mother daily and annoys her, but that is so with all children.
i have been diagnosed with schizophrenia. i do not have paranoid schizophrenia. i also have other mental illnesses and it can be sooo confusing at times. you dont know if what you see and hear is real or not. it can break the line between hallucinations and reality. i have tried many meds. i have not found one that truly helps. i dont believe it was genetics that caused mine as no one in my bloodline, that i know of has any form of mental illness. i believe mine was most definitely cause by environment along with the other mental issues i have.
I am not trying to be judgmental but I've known a few schizophrenics. both of them deceive, lie,etc. One girl lied about stupid things. Another guy lied about things about me to other people and then lie to make me feel better, and then try to rationalize his wrongs.
When i hear of mental diseases like this I count my blessings that i do not have anything like this. Must be hell living like that
I am not an expert on this condtion, but from what I hear most cases are caused by drug use. It is very sad, whether or not this is the cause. I have encountered a few people with the condition in my time.
I can't understand why people with schizophrenia (mental disease) are unable to get help. Society seems to just throw them away like garbage. Our country gives free health care to those incarcerated in prison so why not help the ones who should be first in line instead of last.
I have a nephew who was diagnosed with this disease. He struggled with it for several years but finally gave in and hung himself in 2005. It was his second attempt at hanging himself and he told his mother after the first try that it didn't hurt to hang. I take comfort in knowing he is no longer struggling with the pain of the disease.
runs in some families and there is nothing that the members can do to escape it. you can hope that you will not get it.
I have someone in my family that has something a lot like schizopherenia. I hope that they find a cure for it someday!
I was told that I have paranoid schizophrenia, well what do you expect all I hear on the news about school shootings and stabbings even in your own home, I feel that we are not save anywhere, I don't go out all the time I'm afraid that someone will try to kill me that's always in the back of my mind or someone's out to get me, I'm taking antidepressants they make me a lot worse and I can't take antipsychotics I've tried that had a bad reaction to them
There are people who often refer to schizophrenia as "split personality". There is absolutely not true. Those who have more than one personality fall in the category of disassociative identity disorder, not schizophrenia.
the movie "a Beautiful mind" was the first time this disease made sense to me. anyone that needs to learn about this disease shouod watch that movie
Schizophrenia doesn't sound fun to have but I like a song called Schizophrenia. It's by Jukebox The Ghost, if anyone wants to check it out.
