Question?: Schizophrenia Causes

Michael asks…

I would like to know the symptoms of schizophrenia what causes it and the treament they have available?

admin answers:

Hi, symptoms of schizophrenia can be from mild to very extreme, depending on how bad the individual is afflicted with this disease. Mild symtoms include, talking to ones self a LOT, feeling somebody is watching them, feeling somebody is after them in some way. More severe symptoms are magnifications of the mild symptoms: Hearing voices, answering the voices either outloud or to one’s self, feeling extreamly paronoid ie: people are outside where the suffering person is located and watching them, trying to gain entrance to where the person is at, feeling very confused in thought process, feeling that people in the room in looking at and judging very negitively and purhaps even actively looking for ways to harm the person with this disease, inability to perform well in society, in very severe cases not even being able to dress one’s self without assistance due to scambled brain waves. A person with severe schizophrenia is a very ill person who needs immediant assistance. There are tests which can easily diagnose this illness as brain scans of those with the diseasse are not at all the same as those without it. Medicines can help with symtoms and life coaches, and caretakers can assist with daily life. Not all schizophrenia sufferers paranoid symptoms. However, with or without the paranoia, this can and does effect an individuals life in serious ways and treatment should be sought for diagnoses and treatment. Proper diagnoses is important so this is not mistaken for some other condition.

Question?: Schizophrenia Definition

George asks…

Can someone explain Schizophrenia to me, in depth?

Can someone explain Schizophrenia to me, in depth?
i know the basic definition of Schizophrenia, but i would like to know what really goes on in the heads of people who have this illness. Anyway i really want to understand what is the thought process. Do nightmares occur, and how bad can they get? Thank you for time.

There are a number of different types of schizophrenia. About one third of schizophrenics have paranoid schizophrenia, like me. In this type, the intellectual functioning and affect (whether your face looks animated or not) are not really affected. Short term memory is apparently something which is commonly affected by schizophrenia, but I never found that this was the case.

I had busy thoughts. My delusions came to me as if they were repressed memories, and I thought that the voices were memories of conversations past as well. However, it was all false. I didn’t realise it at the time though. I believed in it all.

I was very concerned with what words meant exactly (including the derivation as found in the dictionary). I would draw connections between various ideas in quite an imaginative fashion, to put it politely. I think that this is what they call “concrete thinking.” It means that you can’t interpret a proverb properly, because you can’t handle abstract thinking. You interpret everything literally.

My delusions and voices were relatively benign. I didn’t really get scared from most of them. I didn’t experience nightmares.

It would be different for everybody though. A lot of people wouldn’t have enough insight into their illness to be able to look back and see what their symptoms had been.

Some people suffer from what they call negative symptoms as well. These are ones that stop you living life so well, such as apathy and avolition. I only experienced these after I was on medication. I’ve switched to a medication that doesn’t have these side effects.

Question?: Schizophrenia Definition

David asks…

Did anyone else notice that religious people fit the definition for schizophrenia remarkably well?

How about some serious discussion on this,mixed with opinions from some of the faithful (just for laughs)…
Please make use of the dictionary before you respond…and don’t let the name get your chemistry going before you look at this with a little logic.
Think of me as neutral for just this one time.This is a serious question.
Angry little flockers,aren’t you?
Oh well,I tried.
Perhaps I will again,with a little more effort.Sometime when I am a little less tired.
CHARMSTER:
Straight from your response;
“Delusions – false beliefs of persecution, guilt or grandeur or being under outside control.
Hallucinations – most commonly involving hearing voices. Other less common experiences can include seeing, feeling, tasting or smelling things which to the person are real but which are not actually there.”
-WAY OFF? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Your user names is Satan
So you seem to be attaching yourself into a religious group as well. At least I can say I’m neutral and in spirit so to say. So tell me what force drove you to ask this question? How could the common public actually give a true diagnosis for schizophrenia through the thought process brought on by your question?? Bla Bla Bla I’m not about to not answer this! Yes religious people of any religion I think would be categorized as so. It is cool our world has all these names for different disorders we carry among us! I would possess many if I diagnosed myself.
