Still today, one of the biggest challenges is being able to talk to that person about their addiction. Even though I personally have not had the opportunity to speak to a loved one or acquaintance about an addiction. Research shows when confronting a person with a problem; it takes preparation, patience, and being totally honest with that individual. Talking to someone with a dependency is something that most people avoid because people like myself would not want others mending in our lives; we, even, tend to believe that it is not our problem how much our f... ... middle of paper ... ...was able to. Thus, what did start out as a simple little habit became an addiction to nicotine.
Was it possible that beneath all of the drug-induced stares, shakes and speech impediments that an alert person existed? Perhaps their diseases had prevented them from interacting with other people in what would be considered a "normal" way. But are they better off now that they are too drug-altered and often depressed to interact at all? As a society, we try to get rid of things we are afraid of, things which make us nervous and things we don't understand. Perhaps mental illness is not so much a problem for the mentally ill, but for their communities who can not and will not empathize with them.
Psychopaths can be manipulative “likeable” social people or they can be drug abusers that can’t deal with their emotions. There are a lot of different ways to describe a psychopath and many can agree on how to spot them but most people can’t figure out how to control them. The brain of psychopaths is very different from the brain of a “normal” person. Because most don’t show signs until they have committed a major crime there is no way of determining who is a psychopath and who isn’t. Therefore, in my opinion there isn’t much to do to secure people from the dangers of a psychopath and the best way to secure people is to have them in a prison or a protected mental institution.
The average self-mutilator has two goals. One being that their acts of self-harm are kept a secret because they feel no one would understand and people would just label them as crazy. The second goal is to have control of themselves. “It’s a way to have control over my body because I can’t control anything else in my life” (Smith 2). They normally feel that they cannot control any aspect of their lives, but they can control what they do with their bodies.
It requires a certain mindset because of the ethical dilemmas that arise during sessions. There is no room for judgment; any judgment of anti-social or destructive thoughts are detrimental to the psychoanalysis process because the patient would shut down. There is a lot of criticism about psychoanalysis because many people believe that what is in the sub-conscious should remain there (Meadow, 2011). The Freudian Theory states that there are certain thoughts and desires that are repressed in the unconscious mind. The reason that these thoughts are not conscious, is because there is some reason that they feel the need to keep it repressed whether it be an outside force or inside thought.
The symptoms include a “flat affect” which is when a persons face does not move at all or the person talks in a monotone voice, lack of pleasure in every day life, lack of not being abl... ... middle of paper ... ...make Jani better no matter how hard they try. Children with schizophrenia require long-term treatment. Most antipsychotics cannot be prescribed to young children due to their dangerous side affects, however atypical antipsychotics usually can be used for children due to their less severe side affects (mayoclinic.com) Psychotherapy is also very effective for childhood schizophrenia, such as individual or family therapy. Schizophrenia is a very frightening disease, but it doesn’t have to take over a person’s life. Although there is no promise to full recovery, with the right treatment and support, people can live fulfilling lives and control their symptoms.
The people who are afflicted with social anxiety may be clouded by these perceptions as well, so they may fail to seek treatment. Because the problem is generally unheard of, they may think that they are the only ones who suffer from it. People who do seek treatment are misdiagnosed 90% of the time, often labeled as "personality disorder", "manic depressive", or "schizophrenic", among other things. This is because social anxiety is not well understood by the general public, or medical or health care professionals. They are not even sure of the real cause of it or what it stems from.
No, depression shouldn’t go untreated because they feel alone, but they need to take the necessary step of looking for help even if it’s without medication. A person with depression should not have to feel like they have to depend on pills to be happy again because pills do not work. It is all mental and if you believe medication is the only answer your gonna keep thinking to yourself that depression is okay. Don’t let antidepressants be something you depend on because every antidepressant has it’s side effects that make you feel worse than you already do without
But family and friends who've never experienced true depression can have trouble understanding what it's like. Many people find it difficult to think of depression as an illness because their are no obvious physical symptoms. But depression is an illness, which is caused by chemical changes in the brain. Few people think that a physical illness is the sufferer's fault-and no one should think depression is, either. Like any other illness, depression has certain symptoms.
Some may even be convinced that others are controlling how they think, read their minds, or plot against them. This can distress individuals, that cause them to become frantic and withdraw making them withdraw and frantic (What is Schizophrenia, n.d). It is possible to live a normal life while taking medications, or any treatment. Researchers of the disorder have agreed that it is one of the most widespread mental disorders in the world Schizophrenia is one disorder that cannot be prevented or predicted. It develops slowly and is a result of stress (Huffman, 2012).
