The second one is a condition that results from the coexistence of disparate or antagonistic qualities, identities, or activities, this is not true. It implies that a person with schizophrenia also has multipl... ... middle of paper ... ...om being real. Although personality disorders cannot be cured, they can be managed and “cooled down” through therapy and various medications. Virtually every mental disorder exhibits a designated stereotype behind it. Society has misinterpreted stereotypes so heavily that the mentally ill have been classified as careless and violent people.
One of the most occurring positive symptoms is hallucinations. Hallucinations are false perceptions, inaccuracies that affect a person's senses and cause us to hear, see, taste, touch, or smell what others do not. Some people with schizophrenia will hear voices that can be reassuring and yet they can be very menacing. Allot of times these voices lead people to hurt themselves or just do abnormal things. Hallucinations, usually the same ones over and over, take control of a person and leave them feeling victimized.
In an article by Smith and Segal (2014) it is stated that “Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world.” Individuals with schizophrenia have a hard time determining what is real and what is not and this is due to the fact that they are usually affected by hallucinations. People with schizophrenia tend to see and hear things that are not there in real life but that appear real to them. They suffer from extreme distrust in people and usually believe that everyone is out to hurt them. This physiological damage makes it extremely difficult to carry out an ordinary life due to the loss to determine what reality is and what is imaginary. Causes Schizophrenia just like every other mental disorder does not have a specific know cause for it and its widely unknown to all medical researchers.
Finally catatonic schizophrenia is when reality is misinterpreted (psychosis.) Although schizophrenia is a mental illness there are still symptoms or stuff to look out for. Some of these symptoms include: change in work performance, disordered thinking, talking in nonsense, hallucinations and delusions, unusual perceptions, and change in social relationships. Schizophrenia is never described exactly the same when it is described by different people with the disorder. Although, what they do described is all quite similar in one way or another.
Those who have this disorder go through variations of abnormal activities. Schizophrenia is a disorder that damages the brain. People with schizophrenia sometimes hear voices that others may not hear. They are truly convinced that they hear these voices as well. Schizophrenias may also think that other people have control over them when it comes to knowing what thoughts run through the mind and they believe that those people will bring harm to their lives (NIMH-Schizophrenia).
This can frighten people with the disease and make them reserved or tremendously nervous. People with schizophrenia might not make intellect when they talk. They might be seated for hours without shifting or speaking. Occasionally people with schizophrenia appear effortlessly good until they communicate about what they are actually thinking. Families and society are disturbed by schizophrenia too.
Schizophrenic people belong in jail. Schizophrenia is contagious. People with schizophrenia are more likely to be violent towards others than healthy people. These are all ideas people hold about the disease and none of them define it. Schizophrenia is an illness that damages the way your brain functions and your cognitive abilities.
They are often distant physically, socially, emotionally and are taken up by their own thoughts and delusions. People with this disorder may suffer from family and society problems. They also might not able to keep up with a job or take care of themselves; they often get dependent on others. The causes of schizophrenia are remote. There is always more than one cause for this illness.
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disease. People with schizophrenia often suffer terrifying symptoms such as hearing internal voices not heard by others, or believing that other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. Their symptoms can be grouped into three categories: positive symptoms, negative symptoms, psychomotor symptoms. Positive symptoms of schizophrenia include delusions, illusions, disorganized thinking and speech, heightened perceptions and hallucinations, and inappropriate affect. Delusions are ideas that they believe frequently but have no basis in fact.
The most common type of hallucination is hearing things that are not there, such as voices. Some people find comfort in their hallucinations, but typically the experience is alienating, stressful and often terrifying. With paranoid schizophrenia, for instance, hallucinations are commonly experienced as a belief that people, even loved ones and healthcare workers, intend to do the person harm. As a result, the person experiencing hallucinations often feel immense distrust, discomfort, and even terror of those around them. In turn, this person’s community (family, healthcare workers, friends) can feel similarly uncomfortable, confused, awkward, and at times, fearful.
