What is Schizophrenia and what is the purpose of talking about it?
Scientist are still discovering what it is all about the only know a little information about the disease and they can’t tell the difference of a deceased persons brain and a deceased persons brain with schizophrenia so I feel it is important to discuss all of the facts we already know. Schizophrenia is a serious with effects of how a person thinks feels and acts. They may have difficulty distinguishing between what is real and what is imaginary may be unresponsive or withdrawn and may have difficulty expressing normal emotions in social situations.
In my opinion I have been reading about schizophrenia and every time a new story is told and how it happened to that person the same thing to almost everyone it effects late teens early 20’s and they first get it while studying for a college test nonstop. Or it could just be something is not functioning propeller in the brain.
there are new medications and other tools available to help people cope with the symptoms of the disease. There still is no cure for schizophrenia. But seeking help can slow down the severities of it.
In prehistoric times, mental illnesses were not viewed as diseases. Instead, affected individuals were believed to be possessed by evil spirits. In some culture holes were drilled into the head to let out evil spirits.
All of the symptoms can include delusion, hallucinations, disorganized thinking (speech), abnormal motor behavior, negative behaviors. In teenagers the symtoms include withdrawal from friends and family a drop in performance at school trouble sleeping irritability or depressed mood lack of motivation. Compared to adults teenagers are less likely to have delusions but more likely to have visual hallucinations.
